Nolan continues his investigation on the mysterious terrorist attacks from the Votanis Collective. WARNING: Spoilers Ahead! Read on to find out more about Episode 8 “Slouching Towards Bethlehem” spoilers and Episode 7 “If You Could See Through Her Eyes” recap.
Previously on Episode 6 “This Woman’s Work” (air date: July 24, 2014), Nolan (Grant Bowler) took the role as Mayor Niles Pottinger’s (James Murray) Arch Hunter during their quest for new energy source. Their mission failed when several Gulanee attacked them. Stahma (Jaime Murray), on the other hand, started to put some changes from their male-dominated Castithan culture.
“If You Could See Her Through My Eyes” (air date: July 31, 2014) started off with a dead Jalina found near Datak’s (Tony Curran) home. Datak did not want to get in trouble, so he asked for Yewll (Trenna Keating). Yewll told him that they could dump the body or tell Stahma about it.
It was revealed that Jalina was a trusted handmaid of Stahma since she was a child. Stahma cared for her servant that she asked Nolan to keep her safe. Upon learning the incident, Nolan asked Irisa (Stephanie Leonidas) if she was the one who killed Jalina. Nolan felt sorry for even thinking his adopted daughter was behind the crime. The previous episode showed that Tommy accidentally learned about Irisa’s secret.
Christie (Nicole Munoz) was trying to follow Stahma’s footsteps by dressing up as a Castithian woman. She sneaked her way to a party where she met a dressed-up Viceroy Mercado (William Atherton). She was given a Castithian gem that was only used during courtship. Alak thought that Christie might have an affair. He sought the help of Deidre (Kristina Pesic) to break them up. He went to the party to witness the affair himself. He saw Mercado and his wife having a great time with each other.
Datak and Stahma joined forces to find Jalina’s murderer. They even recruited Rafe (Grahame Greene), Christie’s father. They found out that the suspect took her eyes, which was a great commodity for Voltans. At the market, Nolan and Irisa finally got a hold of a doctor who kidnapped Voltans for their pale gray eyes. The father-and-daughter tandem saved Rinna from being the latest victim.
Good thing was Datak and Rafe was there to catch the doctor. In exchange of Jalina’s life, Datak decided to take his eyes as well. Rinna was finally examined. She can still use her one eye, and the other would be covered with an eye patch. Meanwhile, Rinna’s friend wanted to go away from them when he saw Irisa. Irisa, on the other hand, has been dreaming of him. She kissed him and saw a vision that they would be together inside a Voltan ship.
