OMG worst Zumba class ever. Jill and Pretzel Jack are crawling around her room, except he's upside down. Side note: Why would a child manifest a clown with absolutely hideously terrifying makeup? Inquiring minds… He charms her and comforts her and young Jill loves it.
Remember when Jillian brought the husk of her old childhood Pretzel Jack down to the secret basement room? It's still here. So naturally, Jack now chooses to lovingly lay next to it. Cuddling with the shell of his former self.
Jill spots Tom talking with his ex, Sarah -- the mother of his child -- on their front lawn. She gets angry and suddenly there is a rush of noise from the basement. PJ somehow escapes and, while fully in a backbend, stabs Sarah in the leg.
Sarah and Tom run off into the woods, chased by Pretzel Jack. They decide to take refuge in a very abandoned looking school. Sarah asks: "Why did a clown come out of your basement and stab me in the leg?" That's a tough one…
Ian and Jill have followed the trail, and catch up to Tom and Pretzel Jack in their pool battle. Jack is holding Tom under water and Jill is panicking. Ian coaches her to calm down in order to save Tom.
To fully stop Pretzel Jack, Ian tells Jill to imagine herself crushing her hands and that it will hurt but she has to do it anyway. Pretzel Jack, still under water, stretches and then explodes. Implodes? Some kind of ploding -- it's messy.
Tom, Sarah, Jill and Ian all head back to the hospital. Sarah finds a way to talk to Jill alone and tells her that Tom is not the father of her child. He just thought he was and wanted to be -- but is not.
Jill gets a ride home from Ian. She tells him that he wants him to teach her how to control "it." And that she doesn't want to go home. He tells her that he knows the perfect place, and they soon arrive at an empty farmhouse that he says was in his family. Yes - perfect! A great place for Jill to suddenly vomit.
Meanwhile, Ian goes back to Sarah in her hospital room with coffee. She thanks him and then basically says, "bye!" Because her husband is coming, they don't have a kid together, and their relationship is long over. As he dejectedly walks away, the grizzled, seen-it-all cops want to know what's new. Also, they want to know who attacked Tom.
Jill's Dad tells him to leave his sister alone. He gets angry and tells Ian he has always been "a bad seed." That's all Ian needs to hear. Remember a few episodes back when Ian mentioned he had a childhood friend named "Tall Boy?" Oh God. Tall Boy.
In perhaps the most terrifying moment in the series yet, creepy neighbor Ian -- promoted to creepy half-brother Ian, though Jill doesn't know it yet -- speed eats six or more burgers in his car. Truly just crams them in his face. What is happening?
Oh Jesus. Ian greets Jill with a morning cup of tea, sits too close, and then kisses her. And she seems into it. Of course, she does not yet know that he's her half brother. Skin crawlingingly creepy. Yuck.
