Well! A lot happens this episode! They’re not kidding with this ad campaign, “Darkness is rising,” because a lot of people die this episode — including a series regular! — tentacle man makes a reappearance, and there’s incest. You guys. Let’s get to it.
We open happily, anyway, with Wendy out picnicking with her bearded EMT, Tommy. Then, aii! A rat scrambles up Tommy’s arm. He freaks out. Wendy snatches the rodent off of him, squeezes it with her killer nails and hurls it into the bushes. Bad ass, girl!
Poor Victor is still all trussed up and bloody. His captor taunts him and sends Jo a misleading text. The rat shows up to report back, shapeshifting into a woman. Things get sexy right away as the captor licks the wound Wendy inflicted. (I know it’s supposed to be seductive, but all I could think about was germs. I’ll see myself out.)
It gets grosser for these two, if you can believe it.
The woman-rat, Isis, now clothed, is checking out her standard issue torture instruments. She and Ivar are after the portal key. She slices Victor. Aii!
