Episode Recap

Deep in the night in the woods, a masked clone observes the burial of a man by a couple dressed in paramedic uniforms. Accidentally creating noise, she quickly leaves a sticker on a tree bark and contacts Beth Childs, sending co-ordinates near the burial. Beth heads to the bathroom to prepare for work and it is revealed she has snorts cocaine hidden under her ink. Paul promises her to make dinner before she goes outside and lightly pecks her. Meanwhile, the clone in the woods takes off her mask, visibly shaken and the right side of her face obscured by hair.
