Hassan visits Joe at his trailer, and finds the town drug dealer Bowl there. He is just filling up Joe’s generator tank, though, and leaves. Joe tells Hassan that he knows Bev poisoned his dog, but he also knows no one believes him. To his surprise, the Sheriff says Joe isn’t wrong about Bev.
At the rec hall, Father Paul and Riley are having an AA meeting, and Riley wants to talk about that hall. Apparently, Bev talked everyone on the island into taking settlement payments after the oil spill, and then suggested that they donate some of the money to the church/Bev. Riley was an altar boy at the time. He thinks she pocketed part of the money, and only had the rec hall built so no one would know for sure.
He says he has been four years sober (while he was in jail), and Paul tells him alcohol is not good or bad, it’s people that make the difference. Riley says that God let the accident happen, He doesn’t help, he just lets bad things happen. “Suffering can be a gift from God” is a monstrous idea.
Erin is at home that night, and hears a noise upstairs (on the roof). She goes to a window, and looks out, only to see movement outside. Then she discovers she is spotting, and rushes to see Sarah, who checks her out and says everything is ok. Sarah lets her listen to the baby’s heartbeat.
Later, Mildred screams in the night, and tells Sarah, “I saw your father outside.” Sarah reminds her that Dad has been dead for 15 years.
We see Bowl walking past that old abandoned house, where he hears a noise. He steps towards the door, and hears an echo of his own voice, then something grabs him and pulls him into the house.
It’s time for church again, and Father Paul is giving Communion. He stares at Leeza in her wheelchair, holds up a wafer, and as she reaches for it, he backs up, saying “Body of Christ.” Everyone stares at him as he backs up the steps to the alter, holding the wafer up, and beckoning Leeza to come forward. She nods, stands and walks up to Father Paul, as the congregation gasps.
Wow, what a great final scene for this episode! I mean, I have been up in the air about the mysterious Father Paul, but he did something to make that sweet girl walk. And can Bev be any worse? Guess we will find out in the remaining 5 episodes.
