Jacob asks Paul again to talk to Emma, and Paul says he doesn't see the same Emma Jacob sees, that she has a lot of different faces. Emma, of course, is standing right there, which you'd think Paul would have learned since it's happened like four times already, and asks coldly, "Which Emma is that?" Jacob tries to smooth things over, but Paul just says "Forget it" and walks off. He is not surviving through episode six, mark my words.
Mike is analyzing security camera footage and finds Rick putting his mask in the trunk of his car. They head to his house, with an FBI team, and go inside to find it deserted -- except for a woman hiding in a closet who tries to stab Ryan when he opens the door. She's Maggie, Rick's wife. That's different. None of Carroll's other recruits had a significant other (before he hooked up Jacob and Emma, that is).
Ryan and Parker question Maggie. She says she last heard from Rick the previous night; they're separated and he called. She hands over her phone and says she hid because she didn't know who was coming into the house and she was scared, because Rick still has a key and he frightens her. Mike brings in a file on Maggie and Ryan asks about the emergency-room report that's inside. A few years ago Maggie asked for a divorce, and Rick stabbed her.
Flashback to Rick doing just that. I thought he didn't like blood.
Maggie says the police didn't press charges because she wouldn't testify. She says Rick was really sorry and he's not always like that. Yeah, call me naive, but I think the first time he stabs you, that's strike three. Maggie says Rick's behavior changed after he got laid off and started hanging out with some new friends. She never met them, but he would come home talking about death. Parker says they're going to arrange protection for her until they find Rick.
Out in the hall, she and Ryan talk about how Maggie is tragic and pathetic and deluded -- and a lot like Parker's mother and sisters: "No one ever wants to see what's really there." So her suitcase labeled "Baggage" just fell from the rafters. Ryan brings up that Joey's still missing, and Parker says she'll try talking to Carroll, because it's time they met. So she's not telling Ryan about that giant book of MacGuffin she gave Carroll last week.
