Servant Season 2 Episode 9 Recap
It is Christmas Eve, and Dorothy is preparing herself for the welcoming of Jericho. She considers that George remains within the house. Leanne tells her that he had abandoned; Dorothy believes that George has ventured outside to bring Jericho. Meanwhile, Sean is preparing a feast for release. The guests arrive, such as Julian, his dad, Mr. Pearce, along with a woman who is Mr. Pearce’s companion. Julian is visibly irritated after his sexual liaison with Leanne and attempts to evade banal conversations.
Leanne informs Sean about the guests, and they have a conversation in the kitchen. Sean believes that George would like to do well for his household as his hands have healed. But, Leanne is adamant that her uncle differs and won’t violate the cult’s rules. Steak is finally served, and at the table, Sean expresses his faith in God and indulges in a prayer. His blatant religious manners don’t go well with Julian because he’s in a vile mood. Julian does not pick up Natalie’s telephone, and if Leanne attempts to speak to him, he leaves the table.
Dorothy and Sean wait out of their house for Jericho and share each other’s grief. Julian descends into traces of cocaine as he attempts to distance himself from Leanne. But, Julian takes too much of this medication and collapses on the ground. Sean tries to resuscitate him and panic ensues. Dorothy is invisibly in the sight and is seemingly transfixed. Leanne comes to Julian’s help and revives him. The guests leave after the terrible ordeal, and in the long run, a stranger knocks at the Turners’ doorway.
Servant Season 2 Episode 9 Ending: Who Is The Stranger?
Dorothy is dejected as Jericho is nowhere to be seen. Leanne visits the basement and finds that a noose wrapped around the contraptions of the ceiling. It is revealed that Dorothy has prepared herself to commit suicide if Jericho doesn’t arrive. She wishes to be with Jericho, and if it’s in the afterlife, then so be it. Soon enough, there are a knock on the Turners’ door, and we see a girl dressed in all-black apparel with a sock on her face.
The ominous look hints at a possible relation to the cult, and it could be assumed that she understands Jericho. Speculations can lead us to think that the veiled lady is after Leanne, as it is now evident that the cult wants to rectify her mistakes. George fails to do so, and perhaps the stranger might focus on getting Leanne back again. Together with the stranger’s arrival, there are a subtle twist to the story as she might be the harbinger of the fact that we have been awaiting.
How Does Leanne Revive Julian?
Following his romantic interaction and lovemaking with Leanne, Julian isn’t in the ideal state of mind. His rage is directed towards his father, and during the episode, Julian seems to be on edge. He is miffed at Sean’s religious ways and also blocks himself from Natalie. Heavily determined by drugs, Julian attempts to eliminate his anxiety and pushes himself off from Leanne. He apologizes to Leanne for the final night, but she seems happy and excited after their experience.
Soon, the dread pops up with Julian, and he collapses on the ground. Some efforts of CPR do not animate him but a gentle kiss from Leanne miraculously awakens Julian. This specific scene shows that Leanne has got some kind of supernatural control over the people she’s closely associated with. It’s as if she draws her power from these connections, and to some extent, cares for them. She has been antagonized throughout, but her strategy towards the Turners suggests that Leanne would like to safeguard them.
Her supernatural art has again and again come to the front, but her intentions are still shrouded in mist. Up until now, Julian’s pragmatism kept him away from Leanne’s influence, but a moment of vulnerability breaks his will. Curiously, when Julian wakes up, he says that he”watched him.” We can speculate that he might have seen Jericho, given the close connection that Leanne had together with the infant. These developments undoubtedly point to a climactic showdown between Leanne and the cult, who have branched into different paths.
