Episode cast overview, first billed only:
Larry Harvey (credit only)


Ben is now living elsewhere but still meets patients in the house as they can't afford anything else. It doesn't sit well with Vivien who would like him to just go away. Ben's latest patient is someone who thinks he can conjure up an urban legend, a killer with the head of a pig. Vivien has an amnio and traces the technician who did her first ultra sound. She scoffs at what she hears. Moira tells Vivien what she thinks about her marriage and Vivien asks her to leave. Violet meanwhile learns of a massacre at her high school in 1994 and Tate's role in it. She also learns about Tate's mother. Written by garykmcd

Did You Know?


In ep#1.5 Steph tells Tate: "You asked me if I believed in God, and you put a gun to my head. I said yes. And then, you pulled the trigger." But in the next episode#1.6, Tate shooting in school is shown with details, yet when he approached Steph, nothing is said, only his footsteps are heard and then the deadly fire shots. See more »


Tate: Something has changed in you. Towards me. You're distant, cold. I don't know what I've done, but I'll leave you alone from now on if that's what you want. Is that what you want? You know why I'd leave you alone? Because I care about your feelings more than mine. I love you. There I said it, not just on some chalkboard. I would never let anybody or anything hurt you. I've never felt that way about anyone.
Violet Harmon: Come here.
[Tate climbs into the bed]
Tate: I'm tired.
Violet Harmon: Me too.
