Most of this episode followed the fallout from the reveal that Eduardo and his boss Walker were controlling Ed and were involved in blowing up Haven. We pick up immediately after the previous episode with Jim running away and Ed coming after him. Luckily, after hiding out in an ambulance, Jim uses a defibrillator to shock Ed which fries the chip in his brain.

I have been looking forward to seeing Shane West on my screen again, especially in this, ever since it was announced and boy, it didn’t disappoint.
