'Eye Candy' fan recap: New killer on the block

Season 1 | Episode 4 | “YOLO” | Aired Feb 2, 2015

Everyone needs time to unwind—even someone as creepy as the Flirtual killer. Eye Candy‘s resident stalker is taking a break for the week and letting Lindy (Victoria Justice) breathe a sigh of relief. Though, as the daters play away, a new threat is standing by ready to have fun.

Picking up from last week’s Eye Candy episode, Lindy is questioning the gift left by the killer: a bracelet that belongs to her missing sister. After a cliffhanger like that, no wonder the killer is giving her time to panic. A nice diversion is what she needs.

Lindy is a hacker, and she’s at her best while working. A new mystery has swept the Cyber Crimes team, and this time, it has nothing to do with the Flirtual killer.

Six friends ride out on a party bus, planning for a night of drinks, dancing, and selfies. All of their exploits are posted online–with no privacy settings. (If I was their age, forget the masked killer: My parents would’ve killed me for drinking!)

Only one teen wakes up still in the bus. Max, the terrified sixth wheel, has no memory of the night before. The NYPD needs help searching for his friends. Lindy is ready to join in, but Tommy (Casey Deidrick) is against it. He’s sure Max is involved while Lindy wants to help the kid out. It’s too bad she couldn’t help his friend Amy.

Amy is dead. The wild child is found washed up against the river, with a GoPro camera tied to her wrist. With no clues to her death, the camera is their only lead.

Eye Candy was somewhat like a horror movie this week; playing on the found-footage genre. Everything is caught on camera. The footage is very Blair Witch, maybe even Paranormal Activity. From the drinks to the psychic prank, everything is recorded on their phones and cameras, including Amy’s own murder. The party girl held onto her camera as a masked killer chased her to her death.

Amy didn’t make it, but as any horror fan can tell you: Drop the camera! The killer is fast, and they always catch up to you when you’re running away.

Even with the camera, the footage is no help. It didn’t reveal the killer nor what happened to the others. But it did explain some events of the night before.

On the party bus, Amy decides it’s time to tell ghost stories. “The Stowaway” is an urban legend about a teen who gets his revenge on his classmates and leaves them to die locked in a boat. Mix that together with Amy’s psychic prank, and the teens are curious to bring out the killer.

Besides the party animals, only two others were there that night. The “psychic” couldn’t help the team, but the bus driver knows where they are. He drove the bus down to the pier to find the stowaway before running away after a masked figure started attacking the bus.

The police find the four missing friends still alive. The teens got locked inside the ship, and are unaware that Amy is dead. They’re sad for her, but no one trusts Max. He’s the outsider and Amy’s friend, not theirs. Tommy is sure Max did it, and with a little digging from Lindy, the team finds the connection to the pair’s unusual friendship.

Max and Amy attended the same treatment facility. They became friends and put their focus in an art project … a little Internet tale known as “The Stowaway.”

There is no legend, no killer, no attacker. “The Stowaway” is a prank, a joke created by Amy and Max. The pair planned a fun night to make “The Stowaway” famous with found footage. Max wasn’t attacked, and no one was chasing Amy. But wait—who killed Amy?

Her death was an accident. Amy fell overboard after stumbling on a chain. Another gem in the lesson department: Always look where you’re going. Accidents happen! Amy is on fire this week with her bad choices. If only she listened to the psychic and watched horror movies, she’d still be alive.

Who is even more upset over Amy’s death? Max. He overhears Lindy and Tommy chatting about her accident, and he goes into panic mode. Max blames himself for Amy’s death, because it was their prank. He wants to make it right.

He removes a gas valve from inside the boat. Max wants to suffocate and be with Amy again. Tommy won’t let Max blame himself; Amy’s death is an accident, after all. He pulls Max out of the boat, but not before they have a dramatic slow-motion moment running away from fire. Between the fire and Lindy’s expression at seeing Tommy alive, the mystery is put to rest.

“YOLO” wasn’t the strongest episode of Eye Candy. It took a nice break from the Flirtual killer before the main plotline ramps up. It does, however, look like a romance is blossoming between Tommy and Lindy. Personally, I think she can do better (#TeamJake). There’s something about him that’s too suspicious. Maybe he’s the Flirtual killer? But that will just have to wait until the killer comes back to town.

Eye Candy airs Mondays at 10/9C on MTV.
