The grief of losing a loved one can devastate a person. Facing the ensuing trauma puts the individual in the likelihood of instability accompanied by despair. Episode 9 of this next season of Servant pushes Dorothy into the same scenario because she has the impression that Jericho will return. Leanne’s existence in the Turners’ home brings with it some mind-boggling situations, and now that Julian is connected to her, circumstances change dramatically. Sean believes that Uncle George and the cult should do great, while protecting Dorothy from a descent into the maelstrom. The story slowly fades from an air of mystery as we could see flashes of truth. Let’s delve into Turners’ pursuit as shown in this exciting episode.
Servant Season 2 Episode 9 Recap
It’s Christmas Eve and Dorothy prepares to welcome Jericho. She believes that George is staying in the house. Leanne tells her he was abandoned; Dorothy believes George ventured out to get Jericho. Meanwhile, Sean prepares a party for release. The guests arrive, such as Julian, his father, Mr. Pearce, along with a woman who is Mr. Pearce’s companion. Julian is visibly irritated after his sexual intercourse with Leanne and tries to avoid banal conversations.
Leanne informs Sean about the guests, and they have a conversation in the kitchen. Sean believes George would like to do well for his household, as his hands have healed. But Leanne is firmly convinced that her uncle is different and will not break the rules of the cult. Steak is finally served and at the table Sean expresses his faith in God and indulges in prayer. His blatant religious manners don’t suit Julian because he’s in a bad mood. Julian does not answer Natalie’s phone and when Leanne tries to speak to him, he leaves the table.
Waiting outside for Jericho, Dorothy and Sean share their grief. Julian descends in traces of cocaine while trying to distance himself from Leanne. But Julian takes too much of this drug and collapses to the floor. Sean tries to resuscitate him and panic ensues. Dorothy is invisible in plain sight and seemingly transfixed. Leanne shoots Julian’s help and resurrects 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 depressed because Jericho is nowhere to be seen. Leanne visits the basement and finds a noose wrapped around the ceiling structures. It is revealed that Dorothy has prepared herself to kill herself if Jericho does not arrive. She wants to be with Jericho, and if it’s in the afterlife, then so be it. Soon there is a knock on Turners’s door and we see a girl dressed in all-black clothing with a sock on her face.
The ominous look indicates a possible relationship to the cult, and it can be assumed that she understands Jericho. Speculation may lead us to think that the veiled lady is after Leanne, as it is now clear that the cult wants to correct its mistakes. George fails to do this, and perhaps the stranger could focus on getting Leanne back. Along with the arrival of the stranger, there is a subtle twist to the story, as she may well herald the fact that we have been waiting.
How does Leanne revive Julian?
After his romantic interactions and lovemaking with Leanne, Julian is not in the ideal frame of mind. His anger is directed at his father, and Julian seems to be tense during the episode. Outraged by Sean’s religious practices, he also blocks himself from Natalie. Julian, heavily determined by drugs, tries to allay his fears and turns away from Leanne. He apologizes to Leanne for the last night, but she seems happy and excited after their experience.
Soon, the fear arises in Julian, and he collapses to the ground. Some resuscitation attempts don’t infuse him, but a gentle kiss from Leanne miraculously awakens Julian. This particular scene shows that Leanne has some sort of supernatural control over the people she is closely associated with. It’s like she gets her strength from these connections and takes care of them to some extent. She’s been tilted all the time, but her strategy towards the Turners suggests that Leanne might want to protect them.
Her supernatural art has emerged time and time again, but her intentions are still shrouded in fog. Until now Julian’s pragmatism has kept him away from Leanne’s influence, but a moment of vulnerability breaks his will. Strangely, Julian says he “looked at him” when he woke up. We can speculate that he may have seen Jericho, given the close relationship Leanne had with the child. These developments undoubtedly point to a climax between Leanne and the sect, which have taken different paths.
