'Eye Candy' fan recap: And the killer is ...

Season 1 | Episode 9 | “FYEO” | Aired Mar 9, 2015

Weeks of murders and Eye Candy twists have lead to this moment: the Flirtual killer’s identity! Eye Candy‘s resident stalker is revealed. And boy, is it a shocker! The Flirtual killer has played a dangerous game, and with only one episode left in the season, Lindy needs to be careful about whom she trusts.

The ninth episode of MTV’s Eye Candy begins with the past burial of unmarked graves on Hart Island. No headstones; no way of identifying the bodies except for their numbers. But one coffin is different—there’s a body with “Sara” tattooed on the wrist. Could this be Lindy’s missing sister?

Back in the present day, a strange smell is coming from IRL. Sophia calls a plumber to fix it, but he runs away scared when he finds the source. There’s a dead body; it’s Oliver, Connor’s date. The police have found the missing boy.

Lindy has her own mystery to solve. Catherine knows something about Sara’s disappearance. There was a case where girls, similar to Sara, were being kidnapped. One of the girls kidnapped, Catherine’s niece Mary, mentioned that a girl named “Sara” was among the kidnapped girls. Lindy receives Mary’s contact information from Catherine in the hopes it will help her find the truth.

Catherine (Melanie Nicholls-King) being stalked by the Flirtual killer

Unbeknownst to Catherine, someone wants to keep her quiet. The Flirtual killer surprises her in her home and attacks her. But Catherine is a seasoned pro and defends herself. She gets a quick peek at the killer’s identity before running away. However, in her escape, she gets hit by a car and sent to the hospital!

Using Catherine’s advice, Lindy meets with Mary to hear about the kidnapping. The kidnapped girls, including Mary, were trapped inside box kennels and drugged by their kidnappers. The girl next to her cell, Sara, got a tattoo on her wrist but suffered a mild overdose before the group’s escape. Mary and the girls made it out alive while Sara disappeared.

Sophia is worried about Tessa. The fun-loving Brit is keeping things from Sophia, enough to the point where Sophia has to check Tessa’s phone for answers. Tessa has an unusual obsession—she’s going on dates with Lindy’s Flirtual matches, including the killer. Tessa is obsessed with the person who’s obsessed with Lindy.

The Flirtual killer is getting closer. He leaves a note at Catherine’s house: “I did it for you, Lindy.” Lindy isn’t sure whom to trust. She doesn’t trust Tommy, but she’s open to trusting Jake. She confides to the Australian hunk that Sara may be a dead girl on Hart Island. The library’s burial records are their best bet to identify the girl, as every John and Jane Doe file is paired with a photo. Except for the needed file, #3034—the photo is gone!

Jake offers to get Lindy to Hart Island, scoring a well-deserved kiss from his crush. They only need a strand of DNA from #3034 to confirm whether it’s Sara. And with help from a former grave digger, they have the information to find the coffin.

Connor is wracked with guilt over Oliver’s death. Tommy has a new Flirtual killer suspect: Hamish, Connor’s boss. Hamish’s company funds Babylon—the illegal online marketplace—and he needs Connor’s help to find proof. Their plan works at first. Connor gets an alibi to stay late (working on a story about Catherine’s attack), and he lets Tommy into the office. Unfortunately for his police skills, Tommy gets locked in a room as Hamish unexpectedly returns early.

Sophia’s curiosity is getting the best of her. She finds strange yellow pills in Tessa’s bag; they’re used to treat bipolar disorder. Sophia confronts her friend, expressing support for her treatment. However, Tessa isn’t taking them for bipolar disorder; it’s for her seizures. She has glioblastoma—a brain tumor—and she doesn’t want people to know she’s dying. She asks Sophia not to tell anyone.

Jake and Lindy’s romance heats up on their trip. Jake’s car conveniently “breaks down” outside of a bed and breakfast, forcing the pair to spend the night. A few kisses and flirty glances leads Lindy to remove Jake’s shirt. There’s a huge bruise on his chest, the result of a bike collision he suffered earlier. After icing the bruise, it’s only a matter of time before Lindy and Jake start hooking up.

Back at the apartment, the Flirtual killer has broken in and plans to kill Sophia. Tessa recognizes their intruder as the killer. She begs him not to kill Sophia, asking to be the victim instead since she’s the one dying. The killer obliges and slices Tessa’s throat! Tessa took the ultimate sacrifice for her best friend—she died as a hero.

The bumbling duo, Connor and Tommy, have been busted; Hamish catches Tommy on the security cameras. He takes the opportunity to offer a deal: He’ll shut down Babylon and provide a clue to the Flirtual killer in exchange for immunity. It’s a tough decision, as Hamish technically is involved, but Babylon causes more harm than good. Tommy agrees and shuts down Babylon once and for all.

Hamish’s clue provides a missing piece to the puzzle. Reiss wasn’t killed by the Flirtual killer; he was killed by someone accepting a Babylon ad. The killer masterminded Reis’ death beforehand to gain an alibi. There’s only one person the Flirtual killer could be: Jake!

Jake is the diabolical killer tormenting Lindy’s life. Jake killed Oliver. He planned Reiss’ and Tessa’s deaths. Jake manipulated everyone around himself to get near Lindy. Catherine confirms Jake as her attacker after waking up in the hospital, but it’s too little, too late. Lindy and Jake are on a boat to Hart Island. He has Lindy all alone, and all to himself.

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