WARNING: If you don't want to know what happened in this episode, don't read this photo recap!
So, Margo came back to her house and found that her dead father is alive. Her best friend Jules luckily came with her, but they haven't seen JT or Seth, the boys they went in with. It's unclear what's happening, but seeing Margo's dead father is definitely out of the ordinary. Especially when he offers her breakfast.
Turns out, what Jules saw in room 5 is a big glowing white orb. It seems to feed off her energy, and she's definitely having dreams about it and…is developing some sort of relationship with it.
Okay, something is definitely up. As Margo and Jules have a conversation with Margo's father (who is, let's remember, supposed to be dead…), he seems to have no memory or realization that anything is different. But this place is definitely not the real world.
Meanwhile there's this guy. Dylan. He's come into the No-End house to find someone. This woman (who we saw running toward the house at the beginning of last episode! Remember?!), seems to know who he is. Is this who he came for? Well, either way, he definitely just shot her in the street and nobody noticed. What? Why?!
Now out of the No-End house, Seth and JT argue and go their separate ways and bump into all kinds of weird things themselves. Seth, for example, comes across this cage in the middle of town with a family in it.
JT, meanwhile, really has a weird time. A replica of him invites JT into his OWN HOUSE and tells him he's meeting an idealized Alpha version of himself. And that girl next to him doesn't move much. JT is freaked out, and Alpha JT seems to have secrets.
As Margo takes a little break from her dad (named John, btw) and Jules, Dad tells Jules she's not a very good friend for abandoning Margo to go to college. He says she needs him now. This leads to a fight with Margo and Jules, where they part ways but realize that they're definitely still in the house. Jules asks what we've all been thinking: Is this room 6?!
Meanwhile, Dylan finds the house he was looking for and begins calling for Lacey. He knows her, but she doesn't remember him at all. He tries to remind her that they came to the No-End House together, and he got out and she didn't. Now he's come to find her. Turns out: Lacey is Dylan's wife!
Margo keeps hanging out with her dad, but when she gets in the pool, it seems to go on forever whenever she puts her head underwater. As she gets out, her dad touches her head to dry her off, and they both get really dizzy. What's that about?
Jules finds Seth and they break into an empty house to sleep in shifts. When Seth falls asleep, though, Jules hears a noise and goes upstairs to investigate. There she finds…that big white orb. When she touches it, it glows yellow and there's clearly something inside it. But what?!
As JT and Alpha JT continue to argue, things escalate. The girl seems to not entirely know who she is. And Alpha JT finally has had enough, he gets up and grabs a bottle, and swings it hard. Yep, Alpha JT murders real JT.
So then, Margo's Dad John comes into her room. While she's sleeping. He puts his hand on her head and some images of Margo's mother go by. As that happens…
…downstairs in the basement, a copy of Margo's mother rises out of a pool of blueish ooze. Is he extracting the memory of Margo's mom? Why? To bring her into this world?
Uhm. No. It's to eat her. Or the…gooey, fish-egg, boba-pod weird pink bubbles that are inside her. So…that explains the warning about cannibals from episode one, eh?
