In From the Cold season 1, episode 2 recap

After being forced to morph by Chauncey, Jenny threatens to kill his family. But first, she finds and fights with Yannick; when he learns she is with the CIA, he begins to talk. As he dies, due to his food poisoning, Jenny finds a phone hidden in the ceiling. Fleeing from the prison, she returns to Chauncey and Chris; she punches Chauncey for tricking her into entering the prison and therefore having to morph (into her Dad nonetheless). 

With her vitals back to normal, In From The Cold informs the audience that Jenny was the only person to survive the Yaroslav Program, a bio-weapons program under the KGB. Although Jenny stresses that she doesn’t know if she can morph again as it’s too much on her body. Despite Chauncey’s advice, Jenny states that she will not be sending Becca home; she wants Becca to enjoy the championship. When Jenny asks if she will get her normal life back, Chauncey tells her that he doesn’t know. 

A flashback shows Jenny/Anya with Faina. As Jenny has debugged the landline, she and Faina talk until the early morning, where Jenny/Anya says that her mother died in a fire when she was five years old. (It’s a cute scene between the pair with some great background music). Back to the present timeline, and Chris says Yannick’s phone provides them with nothing. As a result, Jenny gets told to leave Becca’s ice practice. She downright refuses and sits with Maddie’s mother, Ladonna (Amanda Bright). Ladonna says she knows that Jenny keeps disappearing, but believes it’s to get some “d**k”. (If only she knew!)

Chauncey and Chris head to an apartment building, which is a proper dump. They ask for Yannick (although, they obviously know he is dead). Inside, several kids work to spread misinformation around the world. The probable leader figure of the group appears and claims that Yannick will appear any second. Chauncey pulls out a gun, although then so does everyone else. Chauncey tells them he wants a device that they have been using to encrypt Yannick’s calls from prison. In return, he will give them protection. The group of kids agree, in return for Chris’s watch.

As Jenny, Chauncey and Chris speculate why Yannick was on his way to becoming a terrorist, they find their next target, Lidia. And she is due to be married the very next day. At the wedding, Lidia arrives covered in blood as she holds a knife. Just as the groom starts to go under some form of mind control, Chauncey shoots him. Outside the church, Jenny finds that the bridesmaids are dead. 

The ending

Chris berates Chauncey for breaking his cover at the wedding, whilst Jenny and Chauncey speculate whether the attacks are being made to look like something from The Whisper. Meanwhile, a quick flashback shows Jenny/Anya giving Faina a necklace. The not so good part? It has a tracking device inside of it; the woman in a black cloak tells her, “Good work, little bird”.

Becca finds a dead bird and makes a necklace with its feather; she gives it to Maddie. Upon tracking Lidia down to the Cementerio de La Almudena, where her family are buried, Jenny offers to help her. But the episode concludes as Lidia shoots Jenny.
