Willem arrives in a carriage at a port. Is he getting on the ship to Buenos Arias? I doubt it. The carriage driver sends a message through a friend of Connor’s that Willem has boarded a water taxi. Connor takes off after him saying he’s going Buenos Arias if they have to take him there themselves. I’m not sure why Connor is still mixed up in this. Who is he working for now that he’s no longer with the Police?
Willem is walking on a dark street near the port and Connor has caught up with him and is walking on the other side of the road. When Connor asks him if he’s going somewhere Willem becomes very nervous. He takes off running up onto a bridge that is under construction. Connor and his partner chase him higher and higher. He reaches the point where the bridge ends. The drop to the water below is huge. Willem thinks they are robbers and offers them money. Connor tells him he’s a degenerate and does not deserve to live among decent people.
I’m a Van Bergen!
Willem tells the men he is a Van Bergen, part of the 400. Connor tells him he’s a rich little pansy. When he calls him a dirty sodomite Willem tells Connor he can not talk to him like that because he’s a Van Bergen. I think Willem truly believes he should be treated like a little prince. I’m sure he has been his whole life. He then tells Connor he can not touch him, I think that was a huge mistake.
Connor pulls out his gun. Will he really shoot Willem? Willem tells him he won’t do that, I don’t think that is helping. My heart is pounding at the suspense. Will Willem jump? When he tells Connor he can’t do that he points his gun at him. I’m on the edge of my seat, I’m not sure which way this will go. The dramatic rise in music has me holding my breath…waiting, waiting, waiting. BANG! I literally jump in my seat. The blast is so loud. He’s done it! Connor shot Willem right between the eyes. With his partner’s help Connor wraps him up and tosses the body into the water far below.
Has the Killer Returned?
The man that was scared off during the last stake out has shown up at the brothel. We still only see him from behind, but I can easily tell it’s the same man. The camera follows him into the brothel and moves around the room, among all the people. This honestly reminds me of “The Mannequin Challenge” except that everyone is moving. It does look cool though and I can’t help but wonder if they managed to do it all in one take.
Joseph comes and sits down with Moore, he tells him its too hot working in the room with the window closed. “Rosie” begins talking to Marcus. The man that entered earlier has approached Stevie and told him he is happy to see he is not still outside. He has a very creepy, gruff voice that I don’t recognize. Stevie looks very nervous. The man asks him if he would like to get away from all this. Both Moore and Marcus are currently distracted and don’t see what is happening. Pay attention! The man tells Stevie he can take him away to a castle. He must be the killer! I’m screaming at my TV for Moore and Marcus to pay attention!
Stevie is giving the “danger” signal but neither man notices. The creepy man tells Stevie to find a room upstairs and wait for him. Moore finally notices Stevie’s distress and runs to him. When Stevie points the possible killer out Moore yells for him to be stopped. The man runs out of the brothel with Marcus on his heels. He chases the man into the building across the street.
Sara and Kreizler are waiting in a carriage unaware of what is happening outside. Sara pretends to accidentally drop some Mozart sheet music. When Kreizler picks it up she asks him if he knows the piece, and he says he does. Sara tells him she heard he was once a prodigy. He doesn’t deny it. When she asks him what happened to his arm and why he has lied he become very defensive.
While Sara is confronting Kreizler, Marcus is nervously searching the building for the man and Moore is bringing Stevie to a bedroom. He tells Stevie to keep the curtain open and to put a chair against the door. Marcus is slowly making his way to a back room. Knowing the way this man can just vanish I don’t think he will actually find him there. Lucius, watching from the rooftop across the street, spots Stevie in the bedroom and realizes something has gone wrong. As he runs from the roof we see someone opening a bedroom window in the brothel.
The Hunt is On
When Marcus reaches the room in the back the man suddenly appears in the hallway behind him. This surprises me, I assumed he would have escaped already. Out on the street Sara is arguing with Kreizler about who hurt his arm, oblivious to what is going on around them. The man makes a move towards Marcus knocking him over. He runs off as Marcus shoots at him. Sara tells Kreizler he should tell the truth and that he is coward. Kreizler slaps Sara! I can’t believe it, he actually slapped her. I never imagined Kreizler would ever use physical force on a woman. She clearly hit a nerve with him, but that’s still no reason to slap her. They both seemed stunned that he hit her. Moore runs up calling for Kreizler, not knowing what has just happened. Kreizler seems reluctant to leave Sara but Moore yells for him to hurry.
Someone is trying to enter the room Stevie is in. He pulls out a razor blade ready to attack, as the door bursts open and my heart skips a beat. It’s Marcus! Thank goodness and Kreizler, Moore and Sara are right behind him. When Lucius suddenly runs in the they realize Cyrus was left alone on the roof and they can not see him.
Right Under Their Nose
The men run out of the room and Sara stays with Stevie. On the rooftop they find Cyrus unconscious, Kreizler tells Marcus to go find a Roundsman. When Lucius asks why he would attack Cyrus and bring attention to himself Moore realizes it was a diversion. He looks across the street and sees Sara and Stevie still in the room. As he scans the building he finds a room with an open window and a rope hanging by it. The killer has struck again right under their noses. The show ends as we see a mutilated dead boy laying at the base of the Statue of Liberty.
How will they ever stop this killer if he can pull off a murder with them right on his heels? What will happen to Connor now that he has killed a member of “The 400”? Will he try to frame someone else? Will we find out what happened to Kreizler’s arm? How many days until the next Holy Day? How many more boys are going to die? So many questions to be answered.
