Read on to find out more about Movie News Guide’s (MNG) spoilers for Episode 4“The Acorn.” Plus, check out our brief recap of Episode 3 “Sorrowsworn.”
Previously on Season 2 Episode 2 “Ghost of a Flea” (air date: July 16, 2014), Eleonor Nacht (Franka Potente) had killed Kyle, a teenage boy whom she asked for help. She tried to seduce him inside a storage facility after they went to his home. She had an encounter with Kyle’s little brother before they went away.
In “Sorrowsworn” (air date July 23, 2014), two female characters took the spotlight in the beginning of the episode. Eleonor went inside a boutique. She asked the store clerk for space while she “tested” her new clothes. The attendant didn’t know that she had found pleasure in wounding herself with the pin. Elsewhere, Sonya (Diane Kruger) was having an unsatisfying sexual intercourse with Jack Dobbs (Nathan Phillips), Jim’s (Brad William Henke) brother.
The episode also featured the return of Ray (Brian Van Holt), Cesar (Alejandro Patino) and Charlotte (Annabeth Gish). Ray and Cesar rode a horse trailer when a bunch of teenage bikers wanted to stole the drug from them. They pointed a gun on them, and Cesar confessed about its whereabouts — inside the horse’s ass. The boys left them empty-handed. Later, Ray and Cesar hailed a car away from the scene. Cesar decided to stay with his family, while Ray told Charlotte that they needed to act fast and flee.
Steven Linder (Thomas M. Wright) also graced the screen after being absent since Season 1 finale. He was at Rev Bob’s ranch when he met with his latest intruder — a dirty Juarez cop. He also wanted to give a gift for Eva (Stephanie Sigman). He was surprised when the owner also gave him a smooth, shiny rock. At Eva’s place, he told her that he could lend an ear if she wanted to talk. It was after the traumatic experience when got Eva raped. Steven could not contain his anger and used the rock as a weapon against the dirty cop.
Daniel Frye (Matthew Lillard) and Adriana Mendez (Emily Rios) found that Chichuito was still alive. Raul, the transvestite, was devastated and told them that maybe his boyfriend works at a new house. Raul got a visit from one of Galvan’s (Ramón Franco) men to kill him. He agreed to be stabbed in the heart to “maintain her beauty.”
Back to the case, Marco (Demian Birchi) was allowed to work with Sonya again. They went to meet with Dex, Kyle’s friend. They also talked to Kyle’s brother, who told them about the metamorphosis card. Marco and the team failed to retrieve the body, but they found the card inside Kyle’s pants.
Meanwhile, Eleonor visited Dex’s house. She told him about the butterflies, which Sonya considered as a clue. Eleonor previously asked the help of an injured construction worker to help her to bury the barrel that contained Kyle’s dead body. Marco and Sonya arrived late in the crime scene and didn’t catch Eleonor.
