At The Farm, Edgar (Chad Michael Murray) sits down with Betty and explains that her mom, Alice (Mädchen Amick), and her sister, Polly (Tiera Skovbye), have something to tell her. When Betty was younger, she tested positive for what Polly refers to as “the serial killer gene,” which means she has a “predisposition to violence.”
The worst part? Her dad, who was an actual serial killer, didn’t have the gene, so Betty’s no joke. As a result, Edgar puts her through a series of therapy sessions in which she talks to her alter ego, Dark Betty, who reminds her of every sin she committed as a child, like drowning her family cat and pushing her sister down the stairs.
“I am real, Elizabeth Cooper,” Dark Betty says. “You are the illusion.”
Right on cue, Betty is back with Edgar.
In her next therapy session, Betty brings earplugs in an attempt to dull the hypnosis, and it works. Sorta. When Betty fades out of consciousness, she comes face to face with…Polly.
“You’re a killer, just like dad,” she tells Betty. “And it’s time you embrace that.”
Elsewhere, Betty is growing more and more concerned about Edgar’s practices. It all starts when Fangs (Drew Ray Tanner) suggests that Edgar inflicted pain on him during a therapy session. After Betty lifts Kevin’s (Casey Cott) shirt, revealing a large scar, she snoops around Evelyn’s (Zoé De Grand Maison) room and discovers that Evelyn is on anti-rejection medication, which means those scars are from kidney transplants. Just let that sink in.
