Mike is showing security footage of Carroll's prison visitors -- he's located Emma, Jacob and Paul. They find her driver's license record, and Parker tells Ryan, Riley and Mike to go check out the address, which is in nearby Petersburg.
No one answers the door and Mike says the neighbors haven't seen anyone around the house lately. Ryan is rattling the windows and Mike's like, that is kind of not cool with the Constitution and everything? Ryan replies that it's only bad for the legal case if Mike's the one who breaks in. So he smashes his way through the back door. I kind of want Mike and Marshal Tim from Justified to get together so they can have a drink and bitch about these rule-breakin' lunatics they work with.
Inside the house, there are abandoned takeout food containers and literal writing on the wall. Emma has created a shrine all over the walls -- pictures of Poe, snippets of writing, floor plans (of Claire's house?), and even a shelf full of creepy rubber Poe masks. And that's what I'll be seeing when I close my eyes tonight. On a chair, Ryan finds a copy of his book. And then one of the Poe masks comes alive -- there was a person standing at the end of the shelf, wearing a mask, which was at the same height as the other three -- and rushes at Ryan. The man in the mask knocks him down and holds him at gunpoint (Ryan, of course, still isn't armed. Although they're in Virginia. If he wanted a gun, he could just go buy a gun, I'm pretty sure). The man tells him he shouldn't be here, that he's going to die, but not today. Of course not today. There are thirteen more episodes.
Mike comes in -- way to provide backup there, buddy -- and says the good news is there were no dead puppies. That IS good news. But the bad news is this place really does look like a cult. Parker finally agrees. She asks if Ryan is sure the man who attacked him wasn't Raines, and he says the height and weight didn't match. He thinks they were never supposed to find this place, that it looks like the cult's HQ. Parker muses that Carroll was using Poe as a religion and preying on people who spend a lot of time on the Internet and might also have some other mental disorders. She finishes, "Or some crap like that." Yeah, agreed on the last part. Parker says she runs the FBI's alternative religion unit, and specializes in cults. So that's great.
