Episode Recap

In trusting Art as Beth’s partner, MK is able to warn Sarah, and by association Kira, Mrs. S and Kendall, that the Neolutionists have discovered their hideout in Iceland, and will soon be there. Despite not knowing MK, Sarah has good reason to believe MK. As such, the foursome quickly destroy any trace of their existence in Iceland and head back to Toronto, where they go into hiding again, with help from Mrs. S’s contacts. Sarah knows that she has to find out information from MK about why she knows so much about the Neolutionists, which is difficult as MK has disappeared in her need to remain dead at least to the Neolutionists. So Sarah, with Art’s help, goes back to anything that Beth would have known about MK or the Neolutionists as the only sister who had any contact with MK. They take two different paths, with Art focused on Beth’s movements during her last days, and Sarah focused on MK. Meanwhile, Donnie and Alison help Helena, masquerading as “Mrs. Hendrix”, access some much wanted professional health care. And the sisters discovering that Kendall is the Leda original, making her in essence Sarah’s biological mother, leads to Felix making the decision to embark on his own personal mission.
