“Resurrection” Season 2 Episode 7 “Miracles” aired on Sunday, Nov. 9, 2014, at 9:00 p.m. on ABC. In this episode, ICE Agent J. Marty Bellamy (Omar Epps) reluctantly revealed to Dr. Maggie Langston (Devin Kelley) that he was a Returned and had his own supply of the drugs after giving them to Pastor Tom Hale (Mark Hildreth) in an attempt to make Rachael Braidwood (Kathleen Munroe), a Returned carrying his baby, better. Meanwhile, Margaret Langston (Michelle Fairley) realized that the new investor in the soon-to-be resurrected Langston Furniture factory had ties deeper than how it seemed like on the outside. Meanwhile, Deputy Carl (Christopher Berry) joined Ray Richards’ (Travis Young) anti-Returned group and persuaded them to take action after Ray got sick of the same virus. Read on to learn more about this episode.  

The episode began with Rachael Braidwood (Kathleen Munroe), who was in a very vivid dream. In it, she heard and followed a laughing little girl. However, after a while, the little girl vanished. Rachael then heard some people knocking on a door that had smoke coming out of it. She went near to the door to help, but she found that the door was padlocked, and the window beside it had bars on it. Among the several men that were inside the burning room, one man looked at her, called for help and smashed the window open. Then all of a sudden, a woman, Margaret Langston (Michelle Fairely), asked who she was. They introduced themselves to each other, and Margaret told her that some of the men inside the room were going to die. When she noticed that Rachael was pregnant, she told her that her baby must be very special. Then at that moment, both Rachael and Margaret woke up. Rachael woke up in the hospital, while Margaret was surprised to see her grandson, Jacob (Landon Gimenez), beside her bed, as he couldn’t sleep. She then asked him if he knew anyone named Rachael.

At Twain’s, where Elaine Richards (Samaire Armstrong) worked, she told her brother Ray (Travis Young), that she kicked out his anti-Returned group named True Living, as they were taking up a lot of space in the restaurant. As he went out, he accidentally bumped into Deputy Carl (Christopher Berry). While Carl drank, Ray invited Carl to join in on one of the True Living meetings as he had seemed interested when Ray mentioned that his friends knew of some solutions to get rid of the Returned.  

 At the clinic, Dr. Maggie Langston (Devin Kelley) asked ICE Agent J. Martin “Marty” Bellamy (Omar Epps) if the medicines he had given her were safe enough to give Rachael, as she feared that she only had two days left before she disappeared. However, she herself was not sure if she should administer it to Rachael as they did not know how it would affect Rachael’s baby. Maggie then told him that if ever, he would have to convince Rachael that it was safe enough so that she would be able to get better.

At the hospital, after listening to Marty, Rachael asked to be alone for one hour in order to decide what to do next. The father of the baby, Pastor Tom Hale (Mark Hildreth), could not understand why she still needed to think about it, as he did not want to lose her again. However, his wife, Janine (Lori Beth Sikes), pacified him and urged him to leave Rachael alone in the meantime.

Outside, in the garden, he wondered why Rachael was taking such a long time to decide. However, Janine told him that he had to have more faith in God. She knew that this was a tough decision for Rachael to make, as there was always the possibility that the drugs might have a bad effect on the baby. She reassured him that God wanted them to have the baby.

At Henry Langston’s (Kurtwood Smith) house, Henry and his new investor in the Langston Furniture Factory, Brian Addison (Kyle Secor), discussed how much it would cost to successfully resurrect the factory, which amounted to a total of around $1 million. Margaret then came in, as she wanted to meet the new investor. Henry tried to pass her off as his cousin, but since Brian knew what had been happening in Arcadia, he correctly guessed that she was his mother. Brian then told her that he had lived in Arcadia a long time ago and that he knew nothing about running a factory. Because of this, he invited her out for dinner that night in order to talk about the factory. Lucille (Frances Fisher), Henry’s wife, had noticed Margaret’s exchange with Brian and deduced that Brian was interested in Margaret.

Later that day, at the True Living meeting, Carl revealed that his older brother, Mikey, who had treated him badly ever since he became a Returned and that Carl had let him die after he had gotten sick. The True Living leader then reassured him that he did not kill a human being, as they believed that the Returned were not human as they were already dead to begin with. Because of this, he was quickly accepted within the group. After everyone left, Carl noticed that Ray was still seated in his chair. After going to him, he discovered that Ray had a fever — he had been infected with same virus that had plagued the Returned.

At the hospital, Rachael revealed to Tom that she was not going to take the medicine, because if she survived and the baby didn’t, then she would have nothing to live for. She also told Tom that she knew that he did love her. She also told Tom about the dream that she had and that it had been scary, but oddly reassuring. Tom then called for a nurse as Rachael suddenly became unconscious, and she started bleeding out of her ears.  

At the clinic, Tom insisted that Maggie give Rachael the medicine. However, Maggie refused to do anything as Rachael had specifically said that she did not want the medicine to be given to her. All of a sudden, Maggie’s father, Sheriff Fred Langston (Matt Craven), came in and told Maggie that Ray had been infected with virus. Marty then went off to ask his government contact, Angela (Donna Murphy), if he could administer it to a non-Returned. However, he was told not to give it to any living being as it would not work the same way it does with the Returned. She then told him that she would contact him with more information in the future.

Afterwards, as Marty saw Tom walking out of the clinic, he decided to follow him. He then revealed to Tom that he had his own supply of the medicine as he had the virus and reassured him that the medicine worked as it worked well on him. Because of this, they decided to go to the hospital to administer the medicine on Rachael. However, before they could do anything, they were stopped by Maggie, who had come back to Rachael’s room as she had accidentally left her car keys there. Tom then decided not to push through with it, as that was not what Rachael wanted, and Marty was forced to tell Maggie that not only was he a Returned, but that he had the virus as well. However, Maggie got upset with him as he had decided not to tell, which made Maggie feel that he did not trust her.

Meanwhile, Janine comforted Rachael and the baby and told them that she knew that God was taking care of them.

Meanwhile, Margaret was enjoying her date with Brian. She revealed to him that her father had been the factory foreman at the Langston Factory before and that she had been promised to marry Warren Langston when she was 17 years old while Warren was 38. She also revealed that she had never learned to love him and had run the factory when Warren became too drunk to do any work. He then brought her home for a night cap and for some coffee. However, she decided to go home early as she realized that one of the men in the family pictures of Brian was the man (T.J. Linnard) who had been shouting for help inside the burning room.

After she had left, the man in question, Brian’s grandfather, scolded him for bringing Margaret to their house, because if she realized who he was, then the entire plan would be compromised. However, Brian reassured his grandfather that Margaret did not recognize him at all.

At another True Living meeting, Deputy Carl took charge and told them that they should take action that night to get rid of the Returned, as they might infect them all, just like Ray, as he was currently infected. The entire group then agreed to do something to protect Arcadia and themselves that night.

At the hospital, Fred visited Elaine, who was outside Ray’s room, as he had been quarantined. She then thanked him for giving her a candy bar. Fred then decided that if another person got sick, then he would really place the town on lock down no matter what.

In Rachael’s room, Janine and Tom were surprised to find Rachael up and about. According to Maggie, she no longer showed any signs of the virus and could go back home after one more night in the hospital.

Afterwards, she decided to head to Twain’s where she shared a beer with Marty and told him that they were friends again.

Meanwhile, Margaret paid a visit to Rachael, who recognized her from the dream. Rachael also realized that Margaret was the little girl that she saw, as Margaret told her that the dream was actually a memory of hers. Rachael then told her that she could feel that the man who had been asking for help. Margaret then confirmed that she believed that he had Returned, just like them and that the man was very angry.

Later that night, as Marty drove around town, he noticed that those families who had Returned relatives had doors which were painted with red upside down crosses. Margaret also discovered, much to her horror, that there was a red upside down cross on her house as well.
