The episode begins with Abigail and Hobbs in the woods, where Abigail reluctantly shoots a doe. They take it to the cabin. Before carving into it, Abigail states that deer are complex, emotional creatures. Hobbs tells her that they will honor the animal by using every part. She cuts open the animal. At the hospital, Abigail wakes up with a start and tries to free herself from the wires and tubes. The next morning, Alana arrives to meet Will. She tells him that Abigail woke up. She tells him that since he and Hannibal were present when her parents were killed, they cannot interview her first. Instead, she has decided to talk to the girl. Will still feels that Abigail wasn’t Hobbs’ accomplice. ..
