The Horror of Dolores Roach Season 1 Episode 7 Recap

Dolores has decided that they need to get out, their crimes are starting to catch up with them, and it is only a matter of time before they are caught. They plan on selling the business to Jonah.

The couple met with Jonah to discuss this potential franchising deal.

READ: Is The Horror of Dolores Roach based on a true story?

Jonah has cashed out his life savings and offers Luis and Dolores 15k in payment. He understands that this is only really a deposit, but he can’t access his trust fund without his parents’ signatures.

His father, Gideon, has gone off-grid and can’t be reached.

Luis suggests forging his signature, but they would need fingerprints and a notary as well. The cannibal chef is furious, unable to wait any longer.

Dolores asks if Jonah could use the money from the rented properties to cover the costs. Jonah says they’ll need to wait until the first of the month, but this plan is much more feasible.

What is Dolores’ new identity?

After the meeting, Luis and Dolores smoke drugs together to celebrate. They discuss their future plans to start new lives with new names. Luis has already sorted out their fake IDs. Dolores is given her new driving license, which is under the name Felicia Rocha. While Luis has gone with the ridiculous name Hector Pector.

While they argue, Nellie calls from upstairs. Sophia has had a fall. They run to her aid, finding Sophia beside a bathtub filled with blood.

Sophia explains that while she was drawing a bath, blood came shooting out at her, which caused her to fall and dislocate her leg.

Luis and Dolores are faced with their first curveball. The blood Luis has been draining from the corpses has somehow clogged up the entire plumbing system.

Caleb is having similar problems in his flat. He threatens to phone the authorities. Luis says he can fix this.

What clue does Sophia give Dolores?

The gang helps Sophia out of her flat for the first time in years. She is then rushed off to the hospital. Dolores and Sophia bond in the hospital while Sophia is high on medicine. Dolores asks her about Dominic’s location. She doesn’t know where he is, but he has a Christmas present dropped off at her apartment every year by an Australian white girl.

Dolores believes that this Australian could be her old friend Georgina, the Professor. She goes to the local University to confront her about these accusations.

Georgina admits that she hasn’t seen Dominic in twenty years; she isn’t the female that Sophia mentioned.

As they catch up, Dolores gets frustrated, angry that Georgina never visited her in prison. Whereas Georgina is saddened that they drifted apart in the first place.

The old friends argue, and Georgina says that Dolores is a mean person. This greatly offends Dolores.

Back in the basement, Luis is cleaning out the plumbing system. He starts to undo the clogging issue, although he has discovered that the air-conditioning is broken.

They have a week to get rid of all the remaining meat before they leave. Luis decides to put all this evidence in the freezer upstairs in the meantime while he fixes the air con.

Dolores asks Luis if she is a mean person and discusses her interaction with Georgina. Dolores admits that she doesn’t want to be haunted by Dominic anymore; she wants to move on from him.

She realizes that Luis has given up everything to be with her. Dolores declares that she’s over Dominic. The couple then starts to make out.

What happened in Luis’ youth?

While undressing, Dolores notices a scar near Luis’ groin. Luis is ashamed and pulls away. He eventually opens up about the scarring, though. When he was 12 years old, he was abused by his father’s girlfriend. His father found out and ended the relationship. This confused Luis, who blamed himself.

As punishment for this betrayal, Luis tried to mutilate his body, pouring burning oil onto his groin. Dolores comforts Luis, and the couple goes to bed.

That night, Dolores struggles to sleep, overwhelmed by the traumatic events that are unfolding around her.

On returning, Dolores finds Jonah inside the freezer. He has found his father’s rotting corpse. Dolores doesn’t hesitate; she snaps Jonah’s neck instantaneously. She then says, “Bye, Felicia,” indicating that the couple’s dreams of escaping are now officially over.
