Hope isn't the only Virgin River woman eliciting concern right now. Lilly's diagnosis of stage four prostate cancer is earth-shattering. She got a diagnosis, a second opinion, and the treatment plan sounds grueling.
Everything about that was petty, spiteful, and vindicative, and while Mel wouldn't throw hands with a pregnant woman, there are now two of them who are more than deserving of a love tap across the face.
We haven't spent much time with him, but he sounds controlling and likely doesn't respect her agency as a woman. Any information about her pregnancy should come from her. She at least should be in the room.
In the woods, Chris explains that Derek, Isaac and Scott are useless at tracking because they are focusing their energy on suppressing their werewolf side under the full moon. He urges them to instead focus on their sense of smell explaining that actual wolves can track prey up to a hundred miles per day by scent.

Ervin Burrell is in attendance (as one of the few African Americans) for hopes of improving his relationship with the first district politicians that he and Mayor Royce are not on great terms with. After Carcetti's wife and children go home early, Carcetti is seen committing adultery with a woman he noticed in the crowd.
As several episodes of Hannibal have shown us, our title character knows his way around a fight. Murasaki provides a ready-made way for the show to tackle the question of how this debonair sophisticate could possibly be so skilled in hand-to-hand combat. There's just one problem: she's older than Hannibal and trains him in his youth, so adding her to the show as an active force at this point would make her an elderly woman. And while that would be interesting, it would make her much less credible as a potential force to fight back against her former protégé.
\"I'll Take Care of You\" - Bobby \"Blue\" Bland: Another oldie, this eerie blues song plays when the police find the axe Love used to kill Natalie in the woods, and the confession letter Joe wrote framing Gil for the murder is read aloud.
As Geralt dreams of his night with Renfri, he hears her tell him of his future, that he would be driven out of Blaviken with stones and that the \"girl in the woods\" is his destiny that he cannot escape. He awakens alone, knowing that Renfri intends to slaughter her way through Blaviken until she finds Stregobor. Geralt goes to Blaviken to stop her, and easily dispatches her company of soldiers that attempt to stop him.
In the full panning shot of the artwork, a man and woman blow from either end of the pages towards the three worlds. The two side worlds are shadowed, while the middle one (the origin world) is at the center of everything.
\"Scientists are still looking for an explanation for the events of June 27, 2020, the presumed origin for the catastrophe is assumed to be the small town of Winden,\" the woman on the radio says. \"A French team of scientists believes it possible that our world stood still for a fraction of a nanosecond on June 27, possibly causing the divergence of tidal forces.\"
Night has fallen, and guests are gathered around the campfire. Sunny, in a dark plaid shirt that blends in with her hair, says there's nothing more for them to do tonight, but when Avery, Emily's stepfather, is ready to head back into the woods, Cormac, Emily, and Luke arrive, bringing relief to the worried campers. When he's asked where Paige is, Luke says they'd argued and then separated after she'd seen a light. She'd been headed home. Then he fell and doesn't remember much else. Emily is suspicious of his cuts, and Buck, Sunny's husband, points out that Paige is not there. Luke states that if Emily hadn't found him, he'd still be lost. \"You saved me!\" The other guests are uncomfortable with the whole situation, especially since there's no sign of Paige. Sunny announces that Paige's things are gone, so surely she must have gone home. After all, they are just a couple miles from town and the trails back are clearly marked. Cormac tells Sunny that Emily was truly shaken by her experience in the woods, and he wants to go back and look around again. \"Just something I've got to do.\" Sunny watches him walk away. Later, she joins Buck in their spacious tent. He says he doesn't believe Luke, but they both hope he's telling the truth.
Emily, sprawled on a pristine white fuzzy comforter in the luxurious tent, is looking at the picture on her phone of Luke crouched by the stream. She zooms in for a clearer view. Her stepdad enters, and they begin to discuss Luke. She says that he didn't look saved when he saw her; he looked scared. Emily then confronts Avery, saying she'd seen him go into Luke and Paige's tent earlier. He tried to brush it off by saying the tents look alike, but Emily won't accept that answer. They're both frustrated with each other. \"Not everything is a mystery!\" says Avery. \"If you're hiding something, I'm going to find out,\" says Emily, She starts to push by him. When he questions where she's going, she tells him she lost her knife in the woods last night and needs to get it. This is the first confrontation we've seen between Avery and Emily; up until now, they've been happy. Avery gets authoritative and says she's not going back into the woods, but Emily, in a direct, forceful, but self-controlled way, says the knife is important to her: she sleeps with it under her pillow (Winchester reference) and her dad gave it to her. Avery tries a calmer approach: \"I promised your mother that I would look after you.\" \"Fine,\" Emily responds, \"but I can look after myself\" and she leaves the tent. Avery turns to eye her journal lying on the faux fur bedding.
Back at the sheriff's office, Beau tells Jenny and the deputy that he cut Ivan loose; he's innocent of murder, but he's very upset over the loss of his brother. Jenny has been looking into Starlight Mines. They found an arrest warrant for another man who'd gotten violent after claiming to have been bilked by Starbright Mines. \"Starlight. Starbright. This guy's got a thing for nursery rhymes,\" says Beau. \"There's more,\" says Jenny. A woman had been arrested with him. Beau looks at the mug shots. \"You know her\" he asks Jenny.\"My mother,\" she admits.
Scene shift: a man (Sunny's son in the woods) is sitting in a shed calmly wood carving when he hears a knock. It's Sunny. \"Are you alone\" She enters with pursed lips, looking around the small space. \"What else would I be It's just me and my thoughts and my projects,\" he responds. \"I have a girl who's gone missing from one of my trips. Have you seen her\" she asks, not looking at him and absentmindedly picking up a crudely carved figure. Her son grows agitated. He doesn't want her touching his things. She slaps him. He becomes still and raises his finger to her: \"Do NOT do that again,\" he says intently. She slaps away his finger. \"Why\" she says sharply. \"You going to hit your own mother I'm all you've got, Walt! Have you seen this girl\" His aggression fades. \"No,\" he says quietly, sitting down. Sunny says if people come looking it's not going to be good for either of them. Sunny asks her son to move the backpacker far away so he'll never be found. \"I didn't DO anything!\" Walt protests, rising. Sunny says that doesn't' matter. She's always kept him safe so he needs to listen to her and do what she says. \"Just me and you, Walt, just me and you. That's a good boy.\" She hugs him gently. She begins to sing to him, smoothing his hair as she slightly sways from side to side. \"Oh, yes, I love him. I'll never deny him. I'm gonna love him til the day that I die.\" Sunlight burns through gaps in the wooden slabs of the cabin's walls.
Cassie is planning on heading into the woods and Nadine wants to go with her. Just then, Sheriff Beau enters with another empty pan. \"Another dish,\" Cassie comments. \"Still cooking for a grown man.\" \"Another HOMERUN!\" Beau responds. \"Pumpkin enchilada. Sounds weird -- totally worked.\" \"Well, sweet and salty never fails,\" Nadine giggles. \"Wow,\" remarks Cassie. \"Did she just call me salty\" Beau ignores that, but notices her packing. \"What are you - summoning\" he asks (a possible Supernatural throwout). Cassie says she and Nadine are hitting the trails tomorrow morning looking for the missing backpacker. She asks him to come, but he says he can't because he's working a murder at the Mooney Ranch \"and Jenny's mom is involved.\" \"Wait, GiGi's back\" asks Cassie, exchanging a look with Nadine. She wants to know if Jenny's OK, and Beau says she's not but he doesn't want Cassie to tell Jenny he said that! He adds that he wants to know if she gets any bad juju from the woods since his daughter's backpacking there. \"It's probably nothing,\" she says. \"It's nothing until it ain't,\" he replies. Cassie reminds him to give Emily space and not go back up there. Reluctantly, he agrees, telling Nadine she's a peach as he exits the room. \"Bye,\" she beams, waving. \"You guys be careful!\" he says. Cassie is OVER Nadine and her food and her flirting.
In the woods, Walt has been digging to unearth the buried hiker. He hops in the makeshift grave where Mike's dirt-encrusted, flannel-clad corpse lies still. \"Hello, friend,\" he says. \"I brought you a present.\" It's a simple wood carving of a backpacker . He holds it up with a happy smile, then places it in Mike's front shirt pocket.
