On the March 30 episode of ‘Resurrection,’ Marty and Sheriff Langston finally start working together instead of against each other. Meanwhile, Rachel’s return puts Tom in a hot water with his wife, and Henry continues to be suspicious of his recently returned son, Jacob.
The plot continues to thicken! A brand new episode of Resurrection answered only a handful of questions while leaving a ton of new ones behind. Find out what happened during the March 30 episode below!
‘Resurrection’ — The Murder Investigation Begins
Marty (Omar Epps) is a smart dude. Smart enough that he’s been onto mysterious Caleb (Sam Hazeldine) since the guy came back from the dead. Unfortunately, it seems like Maggie (Devin Kelley) and her father, Sheriff Fred (Matt Craven), are not buying it. They’ve known Caleb forever, or did at one time, so of course they don’t believe that he could have murdered his partner in crime, Dale Getheard (Jason Saucier).
Sheriff Fred stops by Caleb’s house and finds Elaine (Samaire Armstrong) and her brother, Ray (Travis Young). Fred gets straight to the point: Dale is dead, and Caleb is a suspect. It should be noted that Sheriff Fred and Marty are working together, which is a first. Marty discovers the hammer he thinks Caleb used to kill Dale, and the Sheriff asks Ray to go find the shotgun he saw him with the other night. Ray comes back quick to let everyone know the gun is missing, and Elaine looks terrified. She’s so happy her dad is back, she hasn’t been paying attention to his creepy behavior like Ray has.
Marty and the Sheriff pull out old case files to review the robbery that Caleb and Dale may or may not have been a part of. While we get to see a flashback of the robbery, the suspect is wearing a mask — and yes, it’s the same mask that Marty found outside of Caleb’s hunting shed in the woods. The biggest twist of them all? The robbery happened right outside of the bank Caleb’s daughter Elaine was working in. So, was she a part of this from the beginning? I’m immediately suspicious.
But wait! It’s not a flashback — it’s current time. Caleb has done it again! Elaine is off the hook now too, because she calls her father in a desperate attempt to find out he’s been busy somewhere else all along. Instead, he tells her that he’s going away for a while. He lies, says he has a job offer somewhere, and he’ll be back again in a little while. She’s baffled, and Marty has been listening to her conversation the whole time. When Marty questions Elaine, she’s on the defense and claims there’s no way her father could be responsible for the new robbery.
Ray must know what’s going on, because while Caleb is packing up the house, Ray calls the police. Unfortunately, by the time they arrive, Ray is gone.
Later, Elaine opens up to Maggie about her father and admits that he makes her feel safe. But, her dad’s kind of a psycho so it’s clear that Elaine has her blinders up. When Elaine finds out that Maggie knew about his father being accused of murdering Dale, she’s pissed. Even more so when she gets pulled in for questioning by the Sheriff. That’s when we find out she was working at the bank during the first robbery, and she’s one of the only people who knew when the armed truck would be visiting. She claims she hasn’t told her father anything, and I believe her, but I think her dad still took advantage of her somehow.
After Maggie tells her dad, the Sheriff, where Caleb might be (thanks to creepy Jacob!), the police show up in full force. I’m not sure why they let their sirens ring as they pull up, because that kind of gives the surprise of finding him away. However, when Caleb hears the sirens, he says, “You and me against the world, Lainey.” What does his daughter have to do with this?!
Sheriff Langston finds and arrests Caleb, but Caleb tells him this is “just the beginning.” Who knew he could get creepier?
Rachel’s Return Remains Mysterious
We still don’t know who Racheal (Kathleen Munroe) is, but it’s very obvious that she is romantically connected to Tom (Mark Hildreth). We learn rather early on that she committed suicide, but why? Did it have something to do with Tom? We’ll find out eventually, I’m sure.
The next morning, Tom explains to his wife, Janine (Lori Beth Sikes), that he was in love with another woman, presumably Rachel, before he was a pastor. He admits that the woman drove off a bridge and killed herself. When his wife asks why he has decided to tell her about this now, he reveals that the dead woman, Rachel, is back and sleeping in the church basement. Of course, Tom’s wife is very upset. She’s immediately concerned about how much Tom loved her, but he reassures her that he will not let anything come between them. Janine tells him he “knows” what he “has to do,” but I don’t. Is he going to kick Rachel to the curb?
When Tom goes back to check on Rachel, he gets a visit from the always friendly Helen (Veronica Cartwright). Of course, that’s sarcasm, because Helen is kind of a rude old lady. Especially with Tom. She gets suspicious of Tom trying to go in the basement and decides to investigate for herself, but when they go down there Rachel is gone.
Tom looks for Rachel in town, but can’t find her anywhere. Instead, he’s reminded about how serious their relationship is when he gets a flashback of the day he proposed to her. That’s when he realizes where to look for her, and voila! He finds her.
Rachel gives Tom crap for moving on, which is sort of weird considering she killed herself while they were engaged. Rachel admits that she was pretending to be happy, but that doesn’t make sense either because it seems like she really loves him. There’s definitely something that neither one of them are telling us. It’s frustrating, but hopefully it comes out soon.
Tom admits that when he went looking for Rachel and couldn’t find her, he felt like he lost her all over again. It’s an emotional confession that leaves him between a rock and a hard place. Is he going to leave his wife for his dead ex-fiancee?
Henry Still Thinks Jacob Isn’t The Same
Henry (Kurtwood Smith) is still not dealing with Jacob’s (Landon Giminez) return very well. We find out that he’s having trouble sleeping, but when someone comes peeping in Jacob’s window in the middle of the night he turns into a defensive dad real quick. Henry goes running into the street after the obnoxiously rude teenagers who wanted to see the “ghost boy,” but while he’s playing security guard Jacob is having a seizure on his bedroom floor. Lucille (Frances Fisher), his mom, has it handled, but we learn that this is not something new when she asks Henry to go get Jacob’s medicine. Is he epileptic? Was he epileptic before he died? So many questions.
Thankfully, Dr. Maggie comes by in the morning to check on Jacob. She says he’s fine, but they will have to keep an eye on him just in case.
Lucille reveals that she found a stash of food wrappers under Jacob’s bed. Whatever these people who have returned are, they are hungry! Lucille asks Maggie not to mention the non-stop eating to Henry, because he’s already stressed out over Jacob as it is.
Later, Maggie calls Marty to tell her she thinks there’s a connection between Jacob and Caleb considering they have the same eating and sleeping habits. Marty thinks she’s onto something, but at the time he’s too busy dealing with Caleb drama to get too far into it.
Maggie spends some time with her cousin Jacob, and he opens up to her about the fact that people are treating him like he’s a freak show — including his dad. Maggie tries to make him feel better by telling him that when she was his age she had an imaginary friend, but it doesn’t work. Instead, she gives him some encouraging words about how he should be strong so he doesn’t worry his mom. In a creepy moment, Jacob tells her they just passed Caleb. He knows exactly where he is, too, and Maggie is baffled. When Jacob tells her that she can feel Caleb, she goes from baffled to terrified really quickly. Don’t worry, Maggie. That makes two of us. This is SO weird.
That night, Lucille gets in bed with Jacob in hopes of helping him fall asleep for once.
