'Resurrection' recap: Brotherly love (not)

Season 2 | Episode 3 | “Multiple” | Aired Oct 12, 2014

Things are starting to shake up in Arcadia! Last night’s Resurrection episode, “Multiple,” introduced new theories around the mystery of the Returned. While Maggie gets her hands dirty with what’s found in the river, Bellamy confides in Pastor Tom, and a local police officer has a dirty little secret. Let’s get right to it and break down the dirty deets.

#RiverProbs: As if this river hasn’t caused enough pain for the town of Arcadia, things get worse. Pastor Tom is trying to start his new church, and one of his first initiatives is to baptize the Returned. They decided to do it the old-school way—being dunked in the river. Fred’s ex, Barbara, gets to go first. Feeling revived and ready for her second chance at life, Babs cuts her foot on something while wading in the river—a skull! The police department shows up and starts to investigate. We hoped for .025 seconds we might get a Bones crossover, but then Fred broke our hearts and decided to call Maggie and get her professional opinion. Maggie figures out that the bones are almost identical to each other and date back to the 1930s—which would mean that Jacob isn’t the first Returned. We wish we could tell you what this means, but honestly, we have no clue.










Maggie takes the bones back to the hospital, per Bellamy’s request, while her pops tries to find out how the bones got in the river in the first place.

Fred investigates: Since there wasn’t any algae on the bones, it means they were just recently put there. Fred finds a familiar piece of fabric ripped on the side of a bridge over the river, and we find out that it’s fabric from the old Langston factory. Fred finds the hole his mom dug up last week, with some bone remnants still remaining (way to be stealth, Mags). He keeps this from his daughter for now—either because he wants to figure things out first, or he knows something. Maybe Fred saw Grandma Langston burying the bones back in the day? How else would he know exactly where the fabric from the bridge was from? We’re on to you, Freddie.









Brotherly love: Deputy Carl comes home from a long day of fishing out human bones from the river to be greeted by his loving older brother, Mikey. By loving, we of course mean sadistic and cruel. Seriously, he’s the worst. Mikey torments Carl and commands he go to the store and buy him more food and beer. Mikey also insists that Carl must cook it for him. Carl’s brother is significantly larger than him, so our first reaction was that Carl is scared Mikey might beat him up, but Mikey mentioned something regarding hiding a secret about their parents, so there might be some sort of blackmail going on. Either way, we felt terrible for Carl. It was like watching the Arcadian off-Broadway performance of Mean Girls.









Shortly after Mikey almost makes Carl eat steak off of the floor and laughed at him, Carl decides to take matters into his own hands. We were hoping that Carl would stand up to Mikey, or tell him he was a bully—maybe even kick him out of the house. Apparently that was too soft for Carl, because his solution is to shoot Mikey multiple times in the back. Afterward, Carl walks over to the kitchen table so he can sit down and eat a nice, quiet meal. That’s all the poor guy wanted! Instead of treating himself to a post-murder dessert, Carl goes down to the basement to bury his brother’s body, and as soon as he’s finished … Mikey walks through the front door claiming he has a terrible hangover and that he woke up in the woods somewhere. We know we should be against Carl at this point, but if the guy has to kill his brother every night just to eat a decent meal, we’ll let him have this one. After digging up that hole in his basement, he’s probably worked up one hell of an appetite.










Jacob wants to get learned: Jacob is bored at home, so Mags guilt-trips Lucy and Henry into enrolling him in school. The teacher thinks that Lucy and Henry are Jacob’s grandparents, only worsening the experience. We’re going to stop there because this was the most boring part of the episode. Just get the kid Hooked on Phonics and call it a day.



Bellamy and his Michael Keaton moment: Marty is having a tough time adjusting to the fact that he died and came back to life, so he finally decides to talk to Pastor Tom about it. Tom tells him that when his ex-pregnant-girlfriend came back, it gave her some closure to see her body. Personally, that would creep us out to no end (and we’d probably throw up everywhere). If Bellamy needs to see his body to move on, though, so be it. He tricks the “Government Bitch” (as he affectionately calls her) into meeting him in the woods, and she tells him there’s no way he can get his body back. After bartering with her, she decides to let him see his body, but only if he gets her intel on the Returned. Bellamy makes his first step toward the dark side and gives up the location of the bones from the river, and the secret government group raids Maggie’s office basement and take all the bones. Fred was there with Maggie when it happened, but he knows he has to let them take the bones. After Bellamy sees his body, he freaks out and looks like he’s about to hurl. Enough closure for you, bud? Not only was that totally not worth it, but Marty lied (again) to Maggie and betrayed her.











Here’s where we stand:

  • We’re 99.99999 percent sure Mags dumped the bones in the river. But what about how old they are, and the fact that half of them are identical?
  • Bellamy told Pastor Tom he had a dream there were two of him. Does this mean anything other than the fact he’s struggling with being a Returned?
  • What’s up with Deputy Carl? Why are the writers starting to give him such a big storyline?
