Despite being appointed as the town’s peacekeeper, Kevin had been having a hard time with the prescription drugs that he was using in order to stop the hallucinations. His current visions included the Mystery Man and the vicious pack of dogs that they killed in the “Pilot.” It was revealed that his father had the same illness while he was appointed with the same job that Kevin currently has. His father was also in a relationship with Mapleton Mayor Lucy Warburton (Amanda Warren).
On the other hand, Tom (Chris Zylka) was still with the cult following of the Holy Wayne. It was said that Wayne had a fascination with a lot of bikini-clad Asian chicks, including his “favorite” one, Christine. Tom had been tasked to keep Christine, but he also struggled with their attraction for each other. Later, Tom had killed one of the FBI agents who tried to kill Christine.
Jill (Margaret Qualley) and Aimee (Emily Meade) tried to keep up with the town celebrity, Nora (Carrie Coon), who seemed really sketchy. It seemed that she was using her unfortunate loss of loved ones to manipulate the townspeople. The best friends even hijacked the car of the Frost twins just to follow her. They learned that Nora came to asked several people about their missing loved ones.
Meanwhile, Laura (Amy Brenneman) had been tapped by Patti (Ann Dowd) to mentor Meg (Liv Tyler), their newest follower. Laura had been very brutal towards Meg. She even stripped Meg of her material things, didn’t share her cigarettes and ordered her to chop some big tree. Kevin met Meg when he visited the GR house to search for those who had gone missing. There had been an immediate chemistry between them.
