Intruders Episode 2 Recap: In The Beginning There Was Death

Madi-Marcus From The Opening Credits

In episode 2 "And Here You Must Listen" we are treated to a few tidbits about how the Qui Reverti works and what it all means. The opening credits now make sense. Henceforth should we refer to the combo of Madison/Marcus combo as Madi-Marcus?  What are your thoughts thus far? Is "Intruders" a keeper? Please leave your comments below. 

The scene opens with Madison's mother frantically running along the beach screaming. Madison is missing. We next see her at a bus station staring up at a clock. When it strikes "9" (which is a recurring number in the series) she snaps back to reality. She finds a bus ticket from her home to Portland in one pocket. In the other she finds a book with "9" embossed on the front. Inside there are keys, cash and a train ticket to Seattle. Madison opens the book to the page that reads "In the beginning there was death." She thinks back to her trip to visit an Asian woman who handed her the book while saying "Welcome back". 

Jack is still in search of Amy. He goes to her office in Seattle but she is not there and they are not expecting her. When he leaves there are two shadowy characters keeping tabs on him from behind the frosted glass. 

Next we see Jack asleep with Amy beside him. She's speaking Russian and is weirder than usual (if that's possible). She too says "in the beginning there was death".  Is she back? Nope, it was just a flashback. 

There's a new guy taking of Oz's podcast duties. Oz's death is "officially" ruled a suicide. Coincidentally he was found dead right after revealing a secret society known as Qui Reverti. 

Over at Madison's house her parents are working with the police to uncover any leads. "Special Agent Shepherd" shows up at their door. It quickly becomes evident that he is NOT with the FBI when he begins asking such questions as: Did Madison ever speak in a foreign language she never learned, Did she say that she had to go to Portland to visit a Mrs Ing in Chinatown? Did she use any coarse language? Did she say "What goes around comes around"?

Jack meets the cab driver that found Amy's phone. He says Amy freaked him out. She said she was with the Russian secret police and assassinated a labor strike leader in 1883. Nothing unusual there.

Mental Note: Dont Piss Off Thuggish Spirits Who Are Masquerading As Little Girls

Madison opens the "Book Of 9" and reads. "This book begins at the point you began before in another life. There is a lie they tell... a lie that is believed for the sake of control. People believe death to be His (God's) final punishment. That this book is in your hands proves death is not punishment. There is no such thing."  Madison is not allowed to board the train to Seattle because she's an unaccompanied minor. She is not happy.

What Goes Around Comes Around Shepherd

Next the Shepherd breaks into Madame Ing's house. She says "I know who he is. No book was created for Marcus Fox and he will not understand". Mrs Eng also adds "They'll kill us for what you've done". Marcus shoots her (and someone I assume was her son). That Shepherd is vicious.  He later follows Madison but she finally escapes by paying a woman to drive her to Seattle. 

Jack and George (the cab driver) team up up to find Amy. They head over to a condo where Amy and her male friend could be. Here comes Tom Crane (Amy's boss). He shouldnt be trusted. Just then two black suited guys (did they remind you of the "Men In Black"?) beat the crap out of Jack and George. One pulls a gun but the other says "She said no". George has had enough and hits the road. So far George is the smartest person on this show. Next Jack is talking on the phone to the guy whose car he borrowed and the phone clicks over to Amy. She is at home just like she said she would be. OK then...

Favorite Quotes:
  • "In the beginning there was death."- Madison reading from a book (and Amy after she woke up)
  • "We will never forgot."- the guy doing Oz's podcast after Oz was murdered.
  • "Go home, even if you find Amy she's gone"- mysterious caller to Jack. 
  • "What goes around comes around"- Marcus/Madison. This must be his catch phrase. 
  • "People believe death to be His (God's) final punishment. That this book is in your hands proves death is not punishment. There is no such thing." words from the Book of 9. 
Grade: 4 Monsters (out of 5). After two episodes what do you think of "Intruders"? So far I'm intrigued. I'll keep checking back. Next week we meet Marcus and learn what kind of deal he made with the Shepherd.
