The plot thickens as we are introduced to two new characters, a solemn hitman and a spiritual healer. the tethers that bind them may surprise you. to keep existing plots moving, Martin becomes a detective and his first case is to find the killer of a pedophile. these three characters converge and you may find the results rather unexpected.
in following the case, Martin is told by one of the suspects that "people aren't who you think they are" and insinuates that people have a side of themselves that they hide away. The camera focuses on Martin through this as the music swells, telling us that this dichotomy of personality is something he knows all too well.
this sets the stage for Martin's behavior throughout the episode. he tries to reckon with this battle of selves but he's unsure of himself. without spoiling anything, this episode ends with Martin feeling comfortable enough to confide in another character and it gives us fantastic insight into someone who rarely speaks their mind. he is clearly cautious about letting his guard down and goes through extensive measures to ensure he's found the right person to confide in.
while not quite as exhilarating as the previous two episodes, this episode not only expands the world in interesting ways but it helps us solidify our footing in the mystery a bit more in regards to just what kind of person Martin is.
John Hawkes and Jena Malone make fantastic additions to the cast, especially Malone who always seems to bring so much to each role she takes on.
