“Powers” Season 1 Episode 6 “The Raconteur of the Funeral Circuit” aired on Tuesday, March 31, 2015 on the Play Station Network. In this episode, in the aftermath of Wolfe’s (Eddie Izzard) attack on the Shaft, a memorial service was held in the precinct, where Retro Girl (Michelle Forbes) and Detective Christian Walker (Sharlto Copley) discovered that there was more to the Drainer than what meets the eye. Meanwhile, Johnny Royale (Noah Taylor) tried his best to figure out how to stop Sway, and Calista Secor (Olesya Rulin) became disappointed with Krispin Stockley (Max Fowler) and Chaotic Chic’s (Shelby Steel) plans. Read on to learn more about this episode.

The episode began at the Shaft, where Triphammer (Andrew Sensenig) realized that if the Drainer was turned off, then Wolfe’s (Eddie Izzard) powers would return.

Meanwhile, everyone got ready to join the memorial service that was going to be held at the Powers Division for the four detectives and officers who lost their lives during the battle with Wolfe.

While this happened, Calista Secor (Olesya Rulin) took a video of Krispin Stockley (Max Fowler) tagging the police station walls, and continued filming as a power came to stop them. However, they were able to escape as the power stopped to help the people who might or might not be injured, as she had caused a little car accident. However, after spending a little time together, Calista was called away by Johnny Royale (Noah Taylor), who, she explained to Krispin, was protecting her.

Simons (Aaron Farb) picked her up, and despite the fact that Royale wouldn’t have wanted him to give Calista sway, he gave it to her. While he did this, one of him was with Royale, who was trying to find a way to remove sway from a person’s system, by trying to remove it forcefully from one of the many Simons that were there.

Afterwards, Calista went back to Krispin, and the two slept together. However, after she came back from the bathroom, she left him as she was disappointed that Chaotic Chic (Shelby Steel) had edited the video to make it seem like people had died in the car accident, and had posted it, and because of which many people were becoming anti-power.

At the memorial service, Deena Pilgrim (Susan Heyward), who left her father telling stories to the other cops, confronted Detective Christian Walker (Sharlto Copley) about the fact that he had forcefully protected her by trapping her in a cell, and because he had taken Sway when he wasn’t supposed to.

Later, she revealed to him that her father, who kept on repeating the same story all the time, wasn’t a hero like they claimed him to be because he had actually pocketed the money that had been found during that particular raid.

After she helped up her father from the floor as he had drank too much, she revealed to him that she had known what he had done, and decided to move out of his house.

Walker then confronted Triphammer about the Drainer, and asked him where Wolfe’s powers went when the Drainer was on, but didn’t get a reply. He then later told Retro Girl (Michelle Forbes) that he, and not Zora (Logan Browning), was the one who had thrown Wolfe back into his cell, as he had gotten his powers back temporarily from Wolfe when they touched, and that his powers left him after Wolfe was exposed to the Drainer, and that he wanted his powers back, as it was possible

Later, while Triphammer was drunk, Walker and Retro Girl started to become worried as Triphammer started talking ominously and cryptically about the Black Swan that was coming. Walker later tried to ask Captain Cross (Adam Godley) about this, but he told Walker off and told him that he didn’t know anything about what the future might bring.

Back at bullpen, they were interrupted by a news flash that showed Wolfe, airing live from the Shaft. Wolfe, in his interview, asked to be drained of all of his powers so that the world will be safe from him.

And that was all for the recap on “Powers” Season 1 Episode 6 “The Raconteur of the Funeral Circuit”. For more news, udpates and recaps on “Powers” and other television shows, keep on following Movie News Guide (MNG).
