'Haven' recap: Mara can see dead people

Season 5 | Episode 7 | “Nowhere Man” | Aired Oct 24, 2014

Audrey is back! After weeks of Emily Rose brilliantly playing two characters stuck in one body, Audrey’s return brings a new challenge for Rose—playing two characters in two bodies. Rose handles the transition perfectly in “Nowhere Man.” It’s hard to reconcile the fact that Mara and Audrey are being played by the same actress; they seem to be two completely different people.

The newly appeared Audrey luckily doesn’t mean the immediate end for Mara. Duke and Nathan agree that they need to keep Mara around in case she has a connection with Audrey. That’s good news for Mara and for us. Watching Rose play both of these characters is just brilliant and we’re not ready to give that up quite yet.

Audrey is “tired” after being stuck inside Mara so she and Nathan go home to the Grey Gull for a shower and some sexy times. Nathan is happy for the first time in ages, but something about Audrey is different. Nathan can’t feel Audrey anymore. It seems like she is no longer immune to the troubles. Audrey also doesn’t have Mara’s memories.

Audrey finally gets what she has always wanted; she is just Audrey. When Duke’s trouble brought her back, she lost her connection to the troubles. Audrey isn’t a mythical trouble hunter anymore. She doesn’t have multiple layers of personality within her. Audrey is mortal, well, at least for now. You never know what’s going to happen in Haven.

Audrey and Nathan’s morning is interrupted by the trouble-of-the-day call. Three people disappeared leaving nothing but a shadow behind. The three victims all went to the farmer’s market so Nathan heads down there to check it out. Nathan is concerned that people won’t accept Audrey for Audrey so she stays behind. Nathan runs into a creepy guard member at the market, but doesn’t find anything else.

Back at the station Nathan calls Audrey to update her and promptly disappears leaving a shadow on the floor of his office. Nathan isn’t gone, though, he’s just no longer tangible and can’t be heard by anyone. After walking through a slew of townspeople, Nathan runs into a man in the same situation. The solid man tells Nathan that they are ghosts. He sends Nathan to the cemetery for ghost orientation.

The oldest ghost in Haven, Morgan, tells Nathan that they are in purgatory and have to try to move on. Morgan says there’s no way of contacting the living, but Nathan won’t accept that. The cemetery reminds Nathan of the conversation he had with his dead father and figures that if Duke can release the talk to the dead trouble, Nathan can talk to Audrey and get this whole thing sorted.

Mara is unsurprisingly a truly terrible house mate. She does not intend to help Duke with anything. Duke asks her to help with the current trouble, but she refuses. He asks her to tell him whether she and Audrey are connected, she refuses. Mara says she’ll help if Duke gives her the Crocker journal. Mara isn’t immune to Duke’s troubles so the journal would help her prepare for the next bloody eye trouble to escape Duke. Duke doesn’t take the deal and leaves Mara to stew in the basement of his ship.

Mara isn’t alone, though; Nathan is there and it turns out Mara can see him. Mara is still immune to most of the troubles even though Audrey isn’t. Nathan tries to get Mara to pass messages to the living, but she doesn’t feel like it. Tangible Duke and intangible Nathan’s double interrogation wears Mara down and she lets slip to Duke that Nathan is there. After some more coaxing, Mara passes Audrey’s location from Nathan to Duke.

With Nathan missing Audrey continues the trouble search herself, but the guard is not happy with the return of blondie. The guard doesn’t believe that Audrey isn’t Mara and kidnaps Audrey.  The guard members want Audrey to manipulate their troubles the way Mara did with Jodi, but of course new Audrey can’t do that.

First in line to get his trouble changed is a man who dissolves everything he touches. He reaches to touch Audrey so she can switch his trouble (which she has no idea how to do) thinking she is immune just as Duke bursts through the door. Audrey goes with Duke to try to finish off the shadow trouble. She is determined to prove to the guard that she is really Audrey.

Nathan tells Morgan to gather all of the ghosts or shadow things in the cemetery so that Audrey and Duke can bring them back. When Nathan gets to the cemetery he finds one of his ghost friends dead on the ground. This isn’t ghost-dead, this is dead-dead. It looks like he’s been shot several time. Nathan has a big problem: Ghosts can die, too.

Haven airs Fridays at 7/6C on Syfy.
