Here’s the official synopsis for the next episode, titled “Transference”:
Desperate to relinquish Lasher, Rowan reaches out to her extended Mayfair family for help; Rowan must trust their unique process, a sacred ritual; Sip’s search for answers takes him back to the Talamasca.
- Free of the house she may be, but Rowan will obviously remain connected to Lasher. I wonder if “extended Mayfair family” means Cortland, and we know his “help” would probably be anything but.
- Odette knowing about the Talamasca can’t be good for business — or her own safety.
- Speaking of which, is the implication in the summary above that Sip realizes the Talamasca themselves are in league with Lasher?
