Plagued by nightmares James (Patrick Brammall) confides in Sarah (Emily Barclay) about killing Vic. She suggests telling Chris (John Leary) as much as possible, to gain his trust and use that to their advantage. He needs as many allies as possible if he is to save the surviving risen, this is not a one man job anymore and he will need all the help he can get.
Phil (Rob Collins) has found the safe house and is entering the minds of the risen, searching for thoughts and memories. He is trying to seek out Elishia (Genevieve O’Reilly), to end her life in the land of the living for good. Sarah has an unsettling connection with Phil, he is able to set her on the right path, snapping her out of the fog that had settled on her mind. Their mission seems to end on Elishia’s demise, although I am sure we are bound to uncover more twisted truths.
Elishia and William (Rodger Corser) have found each other once more. His memories start to come back to him, as do his feelings for her. They are connected on a deeper level, one that has crossed the boundaries time. She chose to bring him back and in doing so, the others were awoken as well. She opens up to William about how their pasts are entwined, they were lovers in his original lifetime.
Kirstie (Hannah Monson) keeps getting vivid and emotional flashbacks of her former life, she is convinced that her former best friend knows who killed her. She needs answers, closure, and she will do anything to find those things out. including coming face to face with her past.
Chris can’t wrap his head around the risen. How is it possible that these people have awoken as healthy and somewhat functional human beings? Well that’s something we are still trying to figure out, and the answers are just beyond reach. His loyalty will prove to be useful in the future.
Paddy’s (Ned Dennehy) fortification seems to be more effective than he assumed. The rules and regulations of this new era are working against Paddy and his mission to reclaim the land he lost. He wants to give his loved ones the life they deserve, but it’s proving to be harder than he initially anticipated. Paddy seeks out Beau (Aaron McGrath), asking for his help. There is so much about this world he just doesn’t understand.
Kate (Emma Booth) and Sarah run into each other and the tension can be cut with a knife. James will always come between them, even with Kate trying to reassure Sarah that it is over between them. Life before death can never be reclaimed and those relationships cannot be salvaged. Too much time has gone by, and the situation in itself is beyond comprehension. The pain is clear on both sides of the spectrum.
As the boundary continues to retract an alarming rate, Elishia chooses to reach out to Professor Heysen (Pernilla August). There is a chance she can reverse the boundary from closing in around them, she can’t lose the love her life again. Striking a deal with the enemy is the only way to save the risen. Unfortunately danger is always lurking just around the corner.
In a surprising turn of events, Phil is able to get the jump on Elishia, despite her putting up one hell of a fight. In the end it didn’t save her from a knife through her throat. The only answer to the infinite amount of questions is no more. It’s heartbreaking when William arrives at her side, too little too late.
Who will save them now?
Only time will tell.
