Parker returns to talk to Raines some more. He starts singing again rather than talk to her, but halts abruptly when she says she was talking to Carroll, who wants to see Raines. She says she can make that happen, as long as Raines cooperates.
Riley checks on Maggie. She asks if he's married. He's divorced. There's a thud outside, and Riley draws his weapon but doesn't turn any lights on, because that would be sensible. Someone bangs on the door. Riley goes to see what's up. He opens the back door and steps out onto the deck. There's no one there. His phone rings. It's Mike, asking what's up. Riley tells him there's someone in the backyard.
Raines wants to know what happens if she doesn't like what he tells her, and how he knows he can trust her, and Parker's all, which one of us is the lying, murderous dipshit here? He says he doesn't know where Joey is--they divide up the secrets so no one knows everything in case they get caught. Yeah, I bet that is not how Emma sees things. Parker asks if Rick knows where Joey is, but Raines says Maggie does -- she and Emma planned the kidnapping. Dun dun dun.
Mike catches up with Ryan. He talks to Parker, who tells them that Maggie is part of the cult.
Inside the house, Maggie's phone rings. Riley looks at the message, and tells her it says "Now." DUDE YOU ARE AN FBI AGENT. BE SMARTER THAN THIS. Maggie stabs him in the throat with a wee small knife. Riley falls on the floor, gushing blood and clutching his neck.
Flashback to that time Rick stabbed Maggie. Apparently it was part of a game of truth-or-dare the culties were playing. Maggie says he went too deep. Paul and Jacob laugh at how Rick is shit with knives, and Emma just says Maggie needs a hospital. Rick is all solicitous and caring about how he accidentally maybe severed something important.
Rick is in the house now. Maggie tells him they need to go, and they leave Riley bleeding on the kitchen floor. Mike and Ryan run in the front door and find Riley. Mike puts pressure on Riley's spurting neck wound while Ryan chases the Kesters. Maggie stops and plays the victim some more, but Ryan's onto her. Behind him, Rick tries to bludgeon Ryan, but Ryan turns and shoots him. Doesn't kill him, though, because Rick pops right back up and tries to tackle Ryan. Maggie just sits there like a lump. Ryan shoots Rick again and this time he stays down, but Maggie's gone.
Ryan goes back into the house, and Mike is sitting over Riley's dead body.
Country house. Emma and Jacob come downstairs, clearly having just been woken up by noises in the kitchen. The noises: Paul, who's tying a gagged Megan to a chair. He introduces her, and Emma wants to know what the hell he's doing. Paul says he's done listening to Emma, who comes at him like she's going to finish what she started with that carving knife, but Jacob interrupts and asks her to go check on Joey. Jacob asks what he's doing. Paul's through being a fifth wheel. He asks Jacob is Emma knows what a liar he is. Jacob says they promised they wouldn't tell anyone. Boys, it's okay if you had one little drunken tryst while you were pretending to be boyfriends. Situational homosexuality: so fashionable!
Flashback to said drunken tryst! They're talking about how they're fooling Sarah by being all touchy-feely in front of her, and tickling each other, and then they start making out for real. Hott.
Jacob tells Paul they can't keep Megan "here" -- I think he means at the house, but he means the kitchen, because lest we forget, Jacob is also a sociopath. He says he'll help Paul put her in the basement.
Ryan and Parker stand out front of the Kesters' house. She's furious that Maggie fooled her and it led to Riley's death.
Flashback to Carroll signing his book for Ryan. They've had a few and are very chummy, and this is meant to be a parallel to Parker getting fooled by Maggie, because Ryan thanks Carroll for taking his mind off the case for a night. Carroll muses about how Ryan's solitary pursuit must be lonely, but at least there's the payoff of saving lives, right? He suggests one more Scotch. Ryan agrees.
Ryan tells Parker Carroll fooled him. He says he knows what the followers feel as Raines, in the hospital, screams to Carroll that he's sorry, then leans over and bites off a hunk of his bandage. Eww. He moans some more about how sorry he is as he chokes himself. This might be the grossest thing in this episode. Ryan says if he hadn't fallen for Carroll's charm, five of his victims might be alive.
Ryan goes to see Claire. She got the email Emma was supposed to send: it's a video of Jacob showing Joey how to set bugs on fire with a magnifying glass, telling him if he kills something, his life means more. There's a mouse in a jar, and Jacob tells him to screw the lid on so the mouse will suffocate and go to heaven. Joey says he's never killed anything before.
Claire is crying. Ryan tells her they're going to find him. On the video, Emma tells Joey to wave at the camera and say "Hi, Ryan."
Next week: Megan is still in the basement. Maggie kidnaps Ryan's sister. And actual ravens show up. Not Ray Lewis. Although he'd fit right in.
