Here’s the second set of recaps!
Since the events of HOURGLASS, Kaleb and Ava have developed a tentative friendship. When Kaleb goes to the gatehouse where Ava lives alone and tells her the news, a coffee mug across the room jumps and slams into the wall, breaking into pieces. Her fear convinces him to ask her to move into the main house of the Hourglass. After a serious conversation, she agrees.
Kaleb receives a phone call from Emerson, asking him to meet her and Michael at Murphy’s Law.
At Murphy’s Law, Emerson tells Kaleb she thought she had an answer to finding Jack, but that it wasn’t an option. When Emerson becomes upset, Kaleb leaves her and Michael alone and goes to the counter to order. He sees Tiger Girl, the girl he offended at the masquerade, and hurries back to the table to leave. Before he can escape, Emerson introduces him to her best friend, Lily (aka Tiger Girl).
Kaleb tries to talk to Lily, but only ends up embarrassing himself further.
Emerson and Kaleb discuss secrets – one that she’s keeping from Kaleb, and the fact that Emerson never told Michael that Kaleb can take emotional pain away from people by channeling it into himself. Em makes Kaleb promise to talk to Michael about it. While they’re talking a rip forms around them, and this time it’s an entire crowd of people lined up for the GONE WITH THE WIND premiere in the 1940’s. Emerson worries because she’s always been able to interact with rips, and this time they don’t see her. She makes the rip go away and tells Kaleb she needs to talk to his dad.
After Emerson and Michael leave, Kaleb’s father comes to his room to ask him if he’s been taking the medication that helps him control the influx of emotions he feels from other people. He also tells Kaleb he’s noticed a change in their relationship. When Liam tries to bring up Kaleb’s mom, who’s been in a coma for almost a year, Kaleb becomes defensive and angry.
Emerson’s brother and his wife have purchased a house on property that adjoins the Hourglass (also Kaleb’s house). Kaleb agrees to help them move in, and when he arrives at the Cole’s house, Lily Garcia is also there. Kaleb overhears an argument between Lily and Emerson and discovers Lily is a human radar detector – she can find people and things – but that she’s been forbidden to use the ability by her grandmother. Both Kaleb and Lily want to use her ability to find Jack Landers, but Emerson disagrees. She doesn’t want to put Lily’s life in jepeoardy, especially since Emerson thinks Jack could’ve put Lily in her path on purpose. When Lily discovers that Emerson hasn’t told her the whole truth, she and Kaleb have a private conversation.
Kaleb explains the ultimatum to Lily – that the Hourglass has to find Jack Landers or suffer the consequences of time being rewound, and everyone’s lives being reset. If this happens, Emerson could end up in a mental hospital, and Kaleb’s dad would be dead.
They’re interrupted by a rip of a man being hanged. Lily can see it, but Thomas and Dru can’t.
