Full Circle Episode 4 Recap
The episode begins with Sam, the protagonist, discovering her husband Derek’s involvement in extramarital affairs that had a direct impact on the kidnapping. The main character of the kidnapping mystery, Jared Browne (Ethan Stoddard), was wrongly held captive, but Derek now admits that he had a secret son with another lady.
Meanwhile, Derek starts to discover the truth about the Guyanese connection to the kidnapping thanks to the constant interference of Detective Melody Harmony (Zazie Beetz). Chef Jeff’s luxury condo project, “the Colony at Essequibo,” was the target of a string of bribes and payoffs that Derek discovers through thorough forensic accounting in Chef Jeff’s records. This information shows that none of the characters in this complicated circumstance are fully blameless.
As the inquiry goes on, Mel confronts her employer Manny because she thinks he was complicit in the crime and may have planned Gene’s demise in order to take over his position. Mel doesn’t know that Sam was directly involved, which suggests that Sam had a secret motive for what he did. Manny coerces Mel into doing nothing to ensure their safety by telling her he “saved” her by having her delete crucial evidence.
On the other side of the kidnapping, Louis and Natalia, who had planned to demand a ransom for “her son,” eventually get Nicky Henriksen (Lucian Zane), the kidnapper, to tell the truth. They are frustrated by Nicky’s stupid scheme to rob his own biological father in order to earn acceptance and attention, which led to a comical but desperate predicament.
Natalia is tricked once more when she accepts an offer from Edward Chung, a friend who works for Mrs. Mahabir’s adversary group. The proposal calls for insider knowledge on the Mahabir and her crew in exchange for return transportation to Guyana. Deeper layers of deception are revealed when Chung decides to repair his relationship with Mrs.Savitri Mahabir (CCH Pounder) and hands over not only Natalia but also half of the cash he stole from her murdered brother-in-law.
Garmen, Mrs. Mahabir’s deputy, is having marital problems, which Sam and Derek can relate to. His lies are exposed when his wife finds a $88,000 debt to a casino. Garmen is dissatisfied with Mrs. Mahabir’s reliance on her mystical advisor, Mr. Willoughby, attributing their operational problems to magic rather than bad management, and is considering leaving Mrs. Mahabir’s company.
In the meantime, Detective Melody Harmony (Zazie Beetz) transports Xavier, a supporting cast member, to a hotel for his safety. His interaction with his lover, however, as a result of his emotions getting the better of him, draws Mahabir’s agents. Xavier displays his cunning in a stressful circumstance after discovering that they want him alive.
The event ends in a historic gathering called by Mrs. Mahabir that includes Xavier and the unfortunate Ron Cuneo, a casino employee, among other uninvited visitors. Mrs. Mahabir’s strategies are centered on these “loose ends,” bringing the personalities and the kidnapping’s real cause closer together.
