but what can be expected from an organization that believes guns are a disease?

1x11: The Third Rail recap: Zack is recording Vasiliy's work in the pawnshop cellar. Eph gets his son out of the way as Vasiliy tests a UV light bomb test. Everyone shields their eyes as Vasiliy sets the bomb off, but there's only a brief flash. Eph suggests they strobe the lights and Vasiliy jokes about the idea. When Eph takes offense, the exterminator says that he might agree with him, but admits that they're out of bulbs to test and they're going to have to go with what they have. Abraham, overhearing, says that's how he's got by for the last sixty years... read more.

1x10: Loved Ones recap: At Abraham's pawnshop, Zack looks through the phones and laptops. He gets one out and hooks it up to the Internet, and does a search for Kelly's iPhone. Zack gets a location on her near the school where she works, but then loses the connection. After a moment it comes back up and he discovers that she's on the move. The boy calls in Eph and tells him that Kelly's phone is moving, and his father says that the fact it's moving is a good sign. Zack calls his mother's phone but gets her voicemail and leaves a message. He wonders why Kelly hasn't called back, but Eph merely notes the location before they lose the connection again. The doctor tells his son that he'll get Kelly and leaves... read more.

The billionaire insists that he has faith and that the Master still needs him... read more.
