Mary Kills People (S02E02) “The Connection”

With Des (Richard Short) out of the picture, Mary (Caroline Dhavernas) is able to do things her way, without answering to anyone else. She is getting bolder with each life she takes, even going so far as allowing one of her patient’s to die in a very public opera house. She is confident that this is the right path for her, but you can’t help but wonder if it has all gone to her head.

Mary finds herself needing help from her sister, Nicole (Charlotte Sullivan). In return she will give her a cut of the money she earns from giving these ailing souls their kiss of death. Curiosity has garnered Nicole’s attention, she want’s to see what Mary does up close and personal. With some push back, Mary finally obliges. Nicole witnesses first hand the troublesome disconnect her dear sister has with each patient.

Des has decided to strike out on his own, seeking the aid of Annie, who has insider knowledge of terminal patients. He is directed towards a young man who has three weeks to live. Des is conflicted when he learns of all the things the man has yet to experience, opting out of ending his life and giving him advice instead to take care of unfinished business.

Mary’s daughter Jess (Abigail Winter) is having some realizations of her own, finally becoming comfortable in her own skin. Life seems to be balancing out for her, but that is about to all coming crashing in on her with the information Naomi (Katie Douglas) has uncovered.

Olivia (Rachelle Lefevre) has been sending cryptic messages, along with shiny new appliances to Mary’s home address. Not being one to back down, Mary decides to confront the conniving woman. She get’s more than she bargained for when it comes to light just how dangerous Olivia really is. Mary has no choice but to kill Olivia’s husband, if she want’s to make it through the day with her life intact.

All Mary has to do is slip into the house, put the miracle death drug in the husband’s drink, and slip away unseen. It seems simple enough, but thing’s can never be that easy. Especially when the marked man comes home with an unexpected guest. Ben (Jay Ryan) seems to be on an undercover operation and has crashed the party, altering Mary’s plans.

The episode ends on quite the cliffhanger, and it will be interesting to see the interaction that comes from it in the next episode.
Secrets are slowly surfacing, and this time it won’t be so easy to quiet those curious minds.

Mary Kills People airs on Global at 7/9c on Wednesday nights.
