Summary Edit

Ben, whose lack of sleep results in more daydream visions of the Tattooed Man, joins Samson on a trip to Loving. They hope to find more clues at a local brotherhood organization, which bears the symbol of Scudder's trinket. But the manager of the Templar lodge is unwilling to help them, and Ben misses an important clue on a mural. Meanwhile, a Templar tells Sofie about "every Prophet [being] in her House." At night, Lodz taps into Ben's dream and informs Management that Scudder appeared to him in a cornfield. Brother Justin returns to Mintern and asks Iris about the missing pieces of his childhood. At the next church service, Tommy Dolan joins the Crowes and sees Justin unburdening his heart about his dark past in front of the audience. When seeing baptismal water on Justin's forehead transform into blood, Norman grows suspicious of his foster son.
