Carrie is let free out of prison. Lucas is waiting on her. As they pull away, a blue Dodge Charger is following them. Presumably it is her husband. But, it could be one of a myriad of people who have grudge including Rabbit, Gordon, Chayton, or someone from the FBI. Lucas notices the car, but he does not let on. Lucas and Carrie spend time together. They talk, have a meal, go to a flea market, and they case a jewelry store. Carrie finds a stuffed toy unicorn. It reminds her of a story that she used to tell Deva when she was little. Carrie buys the unicorn as a present for Deva. Lucas spots the Blue Charger several more times, but it turns out to be a false alarm upon investigation. It is just a young homemaker buying groceries. On the way back, they take a little detour. He takes her to the house that they talked about so many years ago. It is a nice little place where they could hide from the world.

This episode was extremely slow and pretentious. It was an episode that should have been 10 minutes long. The ratings peaked during this episode which was too bad for the show because it was certainly no representation of the rest of the show. I believe there was a failed attempt at some sort of suspense throughout the episode. I am watching it as part of a binge watch and I don't know how bad it would be to have waited all week to get this weak of an episode. I believe that the writer and director were trying to do something different from the normal show which is a bad idea, especially for the writer's first episode (even though the writer has experience elsewhere). Even some of the line deliveries seemed to be slower than normal. The episode contained lot of slow motion and flashbacks, peppered in weird delusional shots (at least that's how I saw them - fantasies). It just didn't seem to have the same gumption as previous episodes.
