. Previously on Episode 3 “Wish You Were Here,” (air date: July 23, 2014), Molly (Halle Berry) told her husband John (Goran Visnjic) about her mysterious pregnancy. She was shocked when John assured her that he will support her no matter what. They flew to the island where Molly’s dad lives. Unfortunately, Alan Sparks (Michael O’Neill) and the ISEA wanted to get them back.
In Shelter,” Molly and the entire Woods family arrived on the island. Quinn (Louis Gossett Jr.), Molly’s dad, got curious on why their family dog bit Molly’s hand. Molly and Quinn bonded over his alcoholic recovery while Quinn bandaged her hand. They asked her dad if he could accompany Ethan (Pierre Gagnon) for dinner. Molly and John decided to find some answers from the blood samples, but she had another vision of Marcus (Sergio Hartford) again.
Alan had informed Hideki Yasumoto (Hiroyuki Sanada) that the Woods got away. Yasumoto was inside a lab where the scientists conduct experiments on the deadly meteor substance. Yasumoto told him to take care of Sam (Camryn Manheim). Sam previously helped Molly during her mysterious pregnancy in “Extinct.” She drew a blood sample from her friend, but the ISEA stopped them. Later, Alan warned Sam about the murder case of her unstable brother.
Back at the island, Alan told his men to find Molly. When Ethan and his grandfather just got home, the men abducted Ethan. Having learned about what happened, they split up to find their only son. Quinn and John had a fight with the authorities and were sent to jail for a while.
Meanwhile, Molly found an unconscious Ethan near the clearing. She found out that the men used a tool to remove the electric current from Ethan’s robotic body. She tried to run, but the helicopter was faster than her. She later woke strapped in a table found inside a lab. She struggled and found a way to escape with the help of the baby’s bizarre powers. Its powers took a toll on her. She collapsed inside another room filled with scientists and Yasumoto.
