Tensions rise in Saint X Season 1 Episode 7 as Alison (West Duchovny) embarks on her fateful journey away from the resort, which will sadly end in her untimely death. In the present timeline, Emily (Alycia Debnam-Carey) falls apart, again choosing to hang out with her sister’s potential killer.

Saint X Season 1 Episode 7 Recap

After witnessing Gogo beat a man, Emily has refused to leave her bedroom. She’s traumatized by Gogo’s actions, proving he could be the potential killer. Emily’s boyfriend, Josh, suggests she sees her therapist again, and this time, Emily agrees.

What is Emily’s therapist’s diagnosis?

Emily meets with her therapist, discussing the incident in more detail. The therapist is concerned by Emily’s erratic behavior, worried she may get hurt or, worse, killed. She mentions survivors’ guilt, theorizing that Emily wants to get hurt deep down.

Emily states that she wants answers. The therapist responds honestly Emily may never get the answers she wants, and Alison will never return. Angered by this, Emily storms off. Feeling suicidal, she walks out into traffic and is nearly run over.

Gogo spots Emily’s careless actions. They meet in the cafe to catch up. Emily lies and talks about having a brother that died in similar circumstances to how Alison died.

Gogo doesn’t appear to see the connections, though. Emily suggests that they get drinks and go to a club next.

While drinking, the topic of conversation turns to Gogo’s old job as a waiter at the hotel. Emily asks why he left. Gogo says that there was an incident. They start to dance.

Emily loses herself in the music but returns to her time with Alison. Emily touches Gogo, who is offended, and walks off.

Back on the island, twenty years earlier, it was Alison’s final day of her holiday. She talks with Olivia about Edwin and his womanizing ways. She is annoyed by him but still wants to impress him.

Why does Sara follow Edwin’s orders?

After being spotted with another man, Edwin is paranoid that the whole hotel knows his secrets. Desmond speaks with Bery about Sara’s revelation. He discovered that Edwin helped get rid of Sara’s mother’s boyfriend. Edwin didn’t kill him, though. He just got him a job elsewhere. In return, Edwin forbade Sara from ever dating Gogo. Desmond is unsure whether he should tell Gogo the truth or not. Bery suggests he keeps it a secret.

Flashbacks reveal more of Edwin’s backstory. He was taught to repress his sexuality and grew jealous of Gogo being with Sara.

Back at the hotel, Alison asks Edwin if he wants to do something special for her last night. Alison suggests Faraway Cay, but Edwin’s mind is elsewhere. He ignores her and walks off. Alison starts to regret chasing after Edwin and Tyler all holiday. She asks Claire if she wants to have a girl’s night, which her little sister is excited about.

Bery talks with Gogo about Sara. Gogo admits that he is in love with Sara. He doesn’t understand why she doesn’t love him back, though, why they can’t be a family.

Bery changes her mind; Desmond must tell Gogo the truth after all.

Why is Edwin worried?

The hotel guests perform a conga line at their final party. Edwin worries that the staff knows all of his secrets about his sexuality. He invites Alison on a night out, planning on taking her to a local bar and then possibly to Faraway Cay.

Before departing on their night out, Desmond tells Gogo the truth. Gogo punches Desmond, though, calling him a liar; he won’t believe it. Gogo asks Sara for the truth. She won’t admit the deal she has made with Edwin but states that she doesn’t have feelings for Gogo.

What is Alison’s plan for her last night?

Alison meets with Olivia before she leaves. Olivia convinces her to go with Edwin and Gogo to make it a memorable last night. Olivia suggests Alison has a threesome with the two islanders. Alison agrees to this plan.

Edwin confronts Paul, the guest who saw him in the forest. He’s paranoid that everyone knows his secrets. Paul confirms that he hasn’t outed Edwin; no one knows about his sexuality.

Starting with the flashback sequences, we find Edwin, Gogo, and Alison at the local bar. Edwin tries to explain to Gogo why he forbade Sara from dating him. Edwin states that he was only protecting his friend. Sara doesn’t love him.

Alison flirts with Gogo and asks Edwin to take them somewhere that tourists don’t go. Edwin drives them to a secluded spot. The hotel workers show Alison a good time, smoking weed and drinking alcohol together by the sea.

At this scenic spot, Alison initiates her threesome plan, kissing Gogo and Edwin, then coercing the two into kissing each other. Edwin clearly has feelings for Gogo and kisses his friend. Alison then passes out drunk.

The kiss unlocks something in Gogo. He realizes that he loves Edwin too. They are about to take things further when Alison wakes and catches them together.

Edwin panics and shouts at Alison, telling her to leave. She runs back to the hotel.

How did Gogo know who Emily really was?

In the present timeline, Gogo drives Emily to a car park. He knows she’s been lying to him, and he calls her by her real name, Claire. Gogo states that her tics gave her away. Emily worries that he’s going to kill her. Gogo drags her out of the cab. He says he’ll tell her the truth, but he never wants to see her again.

Gogo explains what happened that night, all about the scenic spot and the kissing, adding that he wanted to chase after Alison, but Edwin stopped him. Gogo blames himself for not stopping her.

Back at the hotel, Alison sleeps with Tyler. She forces him to strangle her, although Tyler refuses. Alison returns to her room in a drunken haze and argues with Claire. Alison’s realizes that she isn’t special and has a mental breakdown.

How is Alison killed?

Alison decides to swim to Faraway Cay on her own to prove to herself that she is special. She also needs a memorable story to take back home with her. Alison makes it to the island but slips and falls on the rocks. Alison isn’t murdered. She dies by accident from this collision.

Emily believes Gogo’s story; they did not murder her sister. She then visits Tyler, still desperate for the truth. She thinks it must have been Tyler that slept with Alison that night.

He eventually admits to the truth. Tyler didn’t want to be a suspect in her murder case, so he lied to the police. Tyler tells Emily that she was the last person to see Alison alive. He heard them arguing.

After these hard truths, Emily returns to her apartment. She blames herself, surmising that she could have stopped Alison from going to Faraway Cay.

Further flashbacks fill in all the remaining gaps in the narrative. Gogo and Edwin were caught drunk driving and were arrested. They were released the following day. Alison went missing. Tyler blamed Gogo and Edwin. Gogo panicked and ran.

Why did Gogo think he deserved to be punished?

Edwin was planning on surprising Gogo with a trip to New York. His sister informed him of the missing girl and the rumors. Because of this, Edwin had to cancel his trip. Gogo believed that his relationship with Edwin caused this misfortune. He thinks they deserve to be punished for what they have done. It was an act from God. Then Alison’s body was found, and Gogo was arrested for drug possession.
