The episode begins with Poppy and Richards banging in the upstate New York “cabin.” Meanwhile Erza finally calls Jules to let her know his father is dead. While he may be dead, some of us wonder if he is dead.dead.dead.
Maddie is looking stunning in a black wig and black suit at the horsetrack. She is carrying the phone that was mailed to her at her mother’s house and gets a message that says, ” If you get this, let me know you’re safe. I am. ” She almost replies with “Ezra?” then decides not to respond at all. She approaches three people at the racetrack and pretends to a lawyer looking for, “Cyril Roberts.” What the hell is she up to now? She’s not in touch with the doctor so has no mark at the moment. These three make her for a fraud right away. Maddie quickly changes her con to a long lost daughter Cy never knew he had. They inform her that Cy is gay but she sticks to her story and the say the will point her in the right direction, but they can’t be sure what condition she will find him in.
Jules tries to interrupt the lovebirds to tell them about Ezra’s situation but they are really not that interested so she walks to town watering hole where she just so happens to run into Lenny Cohen. If I hadn’t known she runs in to Lenny, I would have never recognized her. Jules opens up to Lenny about why she is so tortured. When she was a senior she had a bipolar roommate who she was very close to. The roommate was a tormented genius who killed herself by jumping out of their dorm room window. She was devastated for weeks and got behind on her studies and ended up turning in the room mate’s project as her senior thesis. Poppy came along and used the family power and money to get her out of trouble. She resents Poppy for that. As she is telling Lenny this story, Poppy is telling it to Richard. As I am listening to this I am wondering what the point is. Then I remember Sally talking about Arthur stealing his brother’s patent. And Richard’s scenes where he was essentially stealing his salesman’s clients. Is it possible that the Doctor’s method of picking his targets has to do with profiting off the work of others?
Lenny gives us the titular quote this week when she talks about the punished and the punishers who say, “Off you go, that’s enough.” She says that Jules needs to stop punishing herself, she needs to be the one who says, “That’s enough.” She also calls Jules by her first and last name. Then she gives her a ride home and invites Jules and her friends to dinner. When she pulls away, Lenny says to Jules, “See you soon, macaroon! ” That is the title of the finale episode.
Meanwhile, Richard has discovered that Poppy videoed their sexy time and sent it to her husband. Poppy is done with Richard now and appears to be leaving with the car.
Next we see Maddie in a whole new look coming out of a small town mom and pop grocery store. Colleen and Patrick are still on her tail. Why don’t they just grab her rather than following her for days? Patrick wonders the same thing and Colleen explains they want The Doctor. Oh! Should point out that Maddie stole someone’s dog along the way. She took the dog to a nursing home and pretended that she was there to do pet therapy with Cy Roberts. Cy was apparently the con artist to trained her to work for The Doctor. He’s been tucked away in an old folks home as sort of a retirement present from The Doctor. He wanted out and it was better than being killed. Maddie wants to know how to find The Doctor because she wants out too. He says he never learned his name just that he is a real doctor who practices out of Buffalo. It seems like we are going to gather everyone to New York eventually.
Maddie and her newly acquired dog hed off to their motel followed by Colleen and Patrick. Colleen is tired so Patrick suggest she get a room and sleep and he will keep watch. As soon as she is gone he calls someone to activate a tracking device he put inside the truck that Maddie is driving. Maddie gets another text that says, “I’d like to know if you are safe.” Then one that says, “Do you ever regret not getting on that bus?” That refers to the season one finale when she was supposed to get on the bus with the POV and leave together.
Then her real phone rings and she answers it thinking it is Ezra. It’s Patrick who says, “Interesting, so you guys have been in touch this whole time?” They start talking about whether or anything was real in their relationship, but before they get too far, Colleen show up to bust up the conversation and he hangs up on Maddie. Colleen is pissed and says she is going home tomorrow. Maddie takes the dog and leaves. Patrick watches her movements on his phone.
It’s funeral time. Ezra had an odd meeting with his brother earlier where he was hallucinating about Maddie before his brother busted in and had some sort of a breakdown. Ezra gave his brother something to read at the funeral which is apparently being held at the grave site itself. That’s weird. Ezra is also hiding behind a tree while his brother reads the eulogy he gave him. When he finishes, Ezra goes to the car where Max and Sally are waiting. When he gets in The Doctor is on the phone for Ezra. He tells them that as of now, the TOV work for him. Max will take him to the cabin where they will await their instructions.
Maddie returns the dog to its owner and receives a reward. When she gets back into her truck she gets another text. It says, “I know you are getting these texts.” She finally replies asking who it is. The response says to meet her at Langmore Cabin and we can talk about old times. It’s signed “Ezra,” So my prediction is correct. Ezra arrives at the cabin and the TOV reunite with a big group hugs and sobbing from Ezra.
Next week it all comes together at the cabin in the woods. There are four episodes left.
