WARNING: If you don't want to know what happens in this episode, don't read this photo recap!
"You're a duck. Quack quack." McCarthy (complete with new beard) leaves an adorable stuffed animal in the middle of a public market. This can't be good.
Flynn's getting increasingly frustrated by Abby's abduction. Where the heck is she?
McCarthy tortures a woman, her features obscured in darkness, extracting blood and other viscera and injecting it into himself. Is this Abby? Last we saw her, she was naked in McCarthy's cage, so ...
The duck-bomb explodes, causing mass chaos and seven deaths. McCarthy is the ETU's primary suspect in the attack: "We find him, we find your wife," Jackson tells Flynn.
McCarthy mocks the ETU's investigation with a would-be snuff film. He demands the body of Randall Slavich, or "more bombs, more dead, more fun."
Jackson's boss, Ruth Finnerman, doesn't want to give up Slavich's body, as she doesn't negotiate with terrorists ... especially non-human ones. She also wonders why McCarthy signaled out Flynn in his snuff video ...
Regan teaches Flynn self-defense against the Hunters' sonic weapons. Flynn discovers that Regan is a Hunter herself, which doesn't sit too well with him.
Tensions continue to rise between Flynn and Regan as they visit Slavich's widow Jessie, who apparently doesn't know that her husband was from another world. Flynn is beginning to have his doubts as to whether his own spouse was completely human ...
McCarthy calls Flynn and demands he bring him Slavich's body alone, or else he'll never see Abby again. They meet in the basement of an abandoned factory, where McCarthy proceeds with his interrogation about what Slavich told him before he died. It hurts.
McCarthy takes Flynn to "see Abby," but the unconscious woman on the floor isn't, thank God, Flynn's wife. It's a trick to distract Flynn as McCarthy finishes him off, though luckily Regan comes to the rescue ...
McCarthy almost kills Regan, but then he doesn't, and they stare at each other in silence as Hunters sometimes do before he tears from skin from her arm and escapes. Flynn wonders if Regan is the mole in the ETU mentioned by Slavich.
Flynn visits his troubled adopted daughter Emme at her new boarding school, where he shows her a photo of McCarthy and asks if she's ever seen him. Unfortunately, part of Emme having Aspergers is that she's face-blind, though sounds sometimes help. Flynn plays her the Hunters' now-infamous new wave song, which she had heard when she was in a music store with Abby ... the same music store that went ka-boom from McCarthy's duck bomb.
When Regan listens to the song, she can interpret hidden words in the music ... and has strange visions.
Flynn figures out that McCarthy has been using record stores as covers to transmit secret data and then destroying them to hide evidence of his work. But which one will he hit next? The Blue Peak Music logo matches Regan's vision!
Unfortunately, McCarthy's on to them, thanks to his unknown mole at the ETU. Oh, and who's the gal in the shower?
At Blue Peak Music, Jessie Slavich is prepared to make it all go boom. It looks like she was in cahoots with her late Hunter husband after all.
Jessie detonates the bomb, which awakens Regan's Hunter rage (although she does save Flynn). A stunned Flynn looks on in awe as Regan is shocked by her own seemingly uncontrollable behavior (she rips out Jessie's throat).
Flynn is disturbed by Jessie's revelation that she wouldn't have known her husband was a Hunter without him telling her. Regan shows Flynn her molted skin, claiming that if Abby had such a condition, she could have kept it a secret with enough moisturizing lotion. Flynn thanks her, finally warming up to his Hunter teammate.
Flynn freaks out when he goes through Abby's stuff and finds that she had a ton of lotion! Crap ... was Abby indeed a Hunter?
McCarthy affectionately touches the beautiful woman in the back seat of his awesome vintage car. He's got a way with the ladies, this one.
McCarthy feeds the chunk of Regan that he tore off to a disfigured hooded figure with a giant gaping mouth in its chest. Huh. To be continued!
