Robert seeks sanctuary in the Jezequiel House and takes Olala and Ravi with him. Meanwhile, Bulstrode searches for them in London, without success.

Synopsis: Robert seeks sanctuary in the Jezequiel House and takes Olala and Ravi with him. Meanwhile, Bulstrode searches for them in London, without success.

Review: This penultimate episode of the series sees the return of Amelia Bullmore as Renata who is secretly under the influence of the Incubus, which has taken the form of her late husband. 

The presence of Robert and his friends has the incubus unsettled and it even goes to the extent of taking on the form of Jekyll’s girlfriend Lilly in order to try and get rid of him. A plan, which eventually backfires.

Meanwhile back in London both MIO and Tenebre are working very, very hard in order to try and track Jekyll and his friends down. MIO’s enforcement officers under the command of Bulstrode even go as far as to try and raid Jekyll’s home, but all they find is Garson who has very little in the way of information. MIO even go as far as to send Lilly in after the fact in order to softly prise information from Garson, but still nothing.

Back at the Jezeqiel House Ravi and Olala have figured out that there is an incubus about and their suspicions come to fruition when Ravi catches it attempting to feed off of Renata. Interrupted mid feed the incubus retreats and bumps into Robert and quickly changes its form to Lilly in order to try and seduce him.

The Incubus doesn’t count on Robert’s duel personality and when it attempts to feed it triggers Hyde to come out and in order to compensate the incubus changes to Bella.

A few witty exchanges happen before the Incubus runs off again.

At this point Ravi, Olala, Renata and Roberts grandmother hatch a plan to trap and kill the Incubus. But one of them has to be the bait. A duty that is taken by Renata.

This episode finishes on an open ended note as it opens the doors for the thrilling finale and as set ups go. Its a pretty good one.  The only setback was the shows pacing. It was a bit on the slow side.
