What’s Behind The Door?: Don, Gilda, Isabella

Don will not let go of the idea that Norman, Ray, and Emma are hiding something. Plus, with him not fully on board with the idea Isabella is lying, he needed to see physical proof. So, enlisting Gilda for help, he steals Isabella’s key and makes his way to her communications room and sees Little Bunny. With that, he knows not only Isabella’s truth but that he was lied to by what he thought was his siblings

The Whole Truth and Nothing But The Truth: Don, Gilda, Emma, Norman, Ray

It’s hard to give everyone what they need to hear. Don needed hope, Emma needs to be reassured everyone will join them, and Norman just needs everyone to get along. However, with Don learning the truth, he snaps on Ray and Norman and punches them in the face. He even comes to the point of almost punching Emma until he decides he has let off more than enough steam.

This leads to him walking away and cooling off outside, because going outside in the middle of the night isn’t going to alert anybody, right? But, with taking a breather, and apologizes all around, the bond between the five is stronger than ever.

Got Caught Slipping: Krone, Emma, Norman, Ray, Don, Gilda, Isabella

But it is about to be tested since, because of all the commotion Don caused, Sister Krone is onto them. In fact, she reveals she knows but offers her help. Why? Well, to get rid of Isabella she is going to need help. Which, considering the next shipment is in January, a little more than a month away, Krone messing up everything before then would benefit her. Also, with Norman wanting out in a week, this could help solve many issues with his plan.

The question is: Can Krone be trusted and if an agreement is made, will she rescind her assistance when it is time to fulfill her side of the deal?

Highlights

Everyone Knows Everything

Sister Krone revealing she knows everything, and would like to join forces.

With Don and Gilda knowing the truth, alongside Sister Krone revealing she knows everything, we have an interesting scenario here. Being that Sister Krone is crazy, she presents herself as a wild card which can either help or greatly hinder the escape. Add that to Norman trying to lie to both Emma and Ray about who is and won’t be part of the escape, and this makes for another interesting issue to take on.

But, I got to admit, with every new complication, it makes me hope that when the escape happens, as well as when the show transitions to the outside world, the show doesn’t fall off a cliff. Now, that isn’t me saying people have to die but, it may have to be an option. Especially for the kids.
