'Eye Candy' fan recap: The walls have eyes

Season 1 | Episode 7 | “SOS” | Aired Feb 23, 2015

On MTV’s Eye Candy, the villain is always watching. Whether it’s Lindy’s stalker or an aspiring killer, these bad guys have eyes and ears everywhere. Even in the comfort of an apartment, no place is safe! And on this week’s episode, Lindy is playing house to outsmart Eye Candy‘s next all-seeing villain.

Lindy and Tommy grew closer after last week’s Eye Candy. They solved the hospital hacker case and proved that “Tindy” has some potential. The only person who disagrees is her Australian hunk, Jake.

On a chilly New York morning, Jake invites Lindy out for coffee and, of course, a new case. He needs a favor—or, more accurately, his friend Nick does.

While on a date with his girlfriend, Beth, Nick wakes up startled and sore. Someone drugged the couple and neither remembers what happened to them. To make matters worse, Nick’s back is covered in cuts!

The couple doesn’t want to get the police involved. Nick is scared the scandal might cost him a job at Jake’s law firm, so he needs Lindy to be discreet. She’ll do this favor for Jake, scoring not only a date with the lovesick boy, but a kiss in the process.

A new roommate has joined Lindy’s apartment. Tessa, Sophia’s British friend, is back in town after traveling abroad. Sophia wants Tessa to crash at the apartment, but Lindy will only agree if Sophia warns her of the killer. If Tessa doesn’t stay, George will gladly offer a room—he’s enchanted by her.

George didn’t just drop by for Tessa; he’s there to do some digging. After failing to hack Virtual Slumber—the app Nick used to rent the room—the pair discovers that there are hidden cameras all over the apartment. They need the help of Cyber Crimes to find the source of cameras. They connect the cameras to The Dolls House; a voyeur website that airs footage from apartments across the city, including the one Nick used.

Meanwhile, at IRL, Sophia and Connor bring Tessa out for the night. Sophia is ready to spill the details of the killings to her. But instead of being shocked, Tessa doesn’t seem to have a problem. There’s something off about the socialite; Sophia is sure of it.

Nick is hiding something too. The scandal isn’t the only reason Nick is keeping this a secret. George finds recordings of Nick using the room to cheat on Beth. Lindy is positive Beth knows more about Nick’s cheating. She tricks Beth into an online chat to get the truth.

Beth knows all about Nick’s flings; she thinks he has a problem. However, she doesn’t mind because she got her “revenge” on him. The Dolls House offers a paid service for people to “play” with the daters. Beth used the service so that someone could torture Nick. Unfortunately for Lindy, she’ll learn more about this firsthand—someone has “purchased” her online. She’s the next target!

Lindy loves playing undercover to solve a case; she’s the next-generation Veronica Mars. She wants to catch the attacker, but Tommy is determined to play undercover too—as Lindy’s boyfriend. Tommy finds every opportunity to get closer to Lindy, even if it’s only pretend.

Tessa is also being a thorn in Lindy’s plan. With the Flirtual killer around, Lindy tries to send Sophia and Connor away for a safe weekend. Tessa, on the other hand, has other plans, and causes Sophia to miss her bus.

In what is possibly Lindy’s strongest moment, she gives Tessa the scariest look and “convinces” her to head to the police station. She’s done approaching the situation gently; Lindy isn’t tiptoeing anymore.

The Cyber Crimes office isn’t too bad. Sophia gets to spend some time with her eye candy, Detective Yeager. However, their potential date has to be put on hold until the Flirtual killer is caught.

Back at the apartment, Tommy and Lindy are playing happy couple. The Cyber Crimes team—George, Jake, everyone else—is watching the feed. The tension between Tommy and Lindy is awkward, to say the least. Both look uncomfortable, and if it wasn’t for Yeager’s call, Tommy wouldn’t have loosened up and kissed Lindy.

The pair’s makeout session is captivating everyone, and even Jake looks upset. But Lindy cuts the kiss short to get ready for bed. As they get ready, she finds Tommy in a delirious state on the bed. There’s powder over the pillows. It wasn’t the wine that drugged the couple; it was the pillows.

A masked man emerges from a room and begins to fight Lindy. She puts up a good stand before being knocked out. By the time the Cyber Crimes team and Jake arrive, Lindy is nowhere to be found.

The attacker has Lindy in his clutches. She wakes up handcuffed to a pipe and screams for help, even with a gag over her mouth. The fun isn’t over just yet. The masked man turns the feeds back on and focuses a camera on Lindy.

The detectives search the building with no luck. But Tommy does hear something. Lindy’s faint screams echo in the apartment—she’s somewhere nearby. He searches the room and finds a secret passageway behind a large mirror.

Tommy rushes down the shaft to find the attacker ready to burn an “X” into Lindy’s back. He charges at the masked man and quickly apprehends him. Lindy is freed from her chains before being pulled into a hug with Tommy, leaving Jake devastated on the sidelines.

The masked man had no reason to harm her. He was simply hired to scare Lindy, just enough to teach her a lesson. He doesn’t know who paid him, but he does have a message. The message is that “he” has all the power, not her. The attacker was hired by the Flirtual killer.

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