“Homecoming” on Outer Banks starts with John B and Sarah pulling their boat up onto the beach. Because, you know, you can get from the Bahamas to Charleston in the amount of time they did on one tank of gas. Sure Jan.
I find it very hard to believe that they didn’t get stranded at sea and that everything just conveniently worked out in their favor.
Anyway, at the exact same time in Charleston, JJ, Pope, and Kiara show up at the Limbrey house to discover what this letter is all about. Of course, the Pogues don’t go off alone and Pope shows up with his friends like he isn’t supposed to.
When Pope sits down with Ms. Limbrey, I get major Get Out vibes. This lady has horror story written all over her. I wouldn’t have gone into that house alone. Luckily, Pope escaped without going to the sunken place. However, our treasure hunt moved onto a new target that is supposedly worth a lot more than the $400 million gold bars.
Of course, Ms. Limbrey conveniently has the evidence that will clear John B. She isn’t giving that away without getting the key. Which at this point is unknown to Pope, but comes from Denmark Tanny and the Royal Merchant.
Pope has no idea what this key is or the Cross of Santo Domingo and he runs. Ms. Limbrey tries to kidnap him and thus ensues a chase through Charleston. JJ, Pope, and Kiara convientley run into John B and Sarah as they are running from the man they pick pocketed.
This is true Outer Banks fashion here. It is full of dramatic inconveniences and then moments where something goes right.
Ward claiming that Rafe shot Sarah on accident is a load of shit. He may not have been aiming at her, but he wasn’t sorry. He said that himself and Ward is burying his head in the sand. Rose is right that Sarah would testify against them.
Getting shot by your brother doesn’t really build a solid foundation for a relationship. Especially, since Ward also set up Sarah’s “husband”.
The Pogues are also very idiotic with their “Homecoming”. John B and Sarah are on the run and they are just all freely showing their face in town to grab a pack of beer? Use your fucking head. Do you want to be arrested?
I know John B said he didn’t want to run anymore, but he shouldn’t be so cavalier showing his face around town when he hasn’t cleared his name yet. These kids need to use their heads sometimes.
Rafe, of course, has to go off and want to kill him straight away once he finds out that John B is back in town. Doesn’t even blink about going to get a gun from his friend and showing up to John B’s house. Luckily, even though drunk and high, they are still listening for people and are able to hide in a tree.
Also, what is with the Pabst beer? You can’t find anything better than that? The only time I have ever drank that shit was playing beer pong and drunk off my ass. It’s nasty.
Sarah has a grand plan to go confront her dad and believes he will choose her over Rafe. That is never going to happen whether he loves you or not. Ward is a narcissist and blames John B for everything that has gone wrong. Ward isn’t responsible – oh no. He just wants to help his family.
It predictably ends in disaster for Sarah and she brings the cops back on accident and John B is finally arrested for first degree murder.
