A recap/review of The Bastard Son & The Devil Himself episode 4
What do Gabriel, Nathan, and Annalise do after jumping off the balcony?
With the help of Gabriel's magical powers, the three construe plans after jumping off a tall building. After that, they meet with a sailor friend of Gabriel, who lends them his ship. By sailing, they finally reach a place where Gabriel can open a portal, and the portal leads them to Paris.
After that, the trio goes on a mission in Paris to find Gabriel's equipment so that they can look for Mercury. They first stop at a bar to meet a few old mates of Gabriel, as he believes that one of them has stolen his tools. After a brawl, Gabriel learns where his box of equipment is.
However, after discovering the box and opening it, he sees that his most important book is missing, and soon, he realizes that it is his former lover who has stolen it from him. He approaches his lover and takes the book from him before erasing his memory of their relationship.
What happens later at the bar?
After getting his book, the trio sits at a bar again. When Gabriel discovers Nathan's real identity, he feels betrayed as Nathan and Annalise promise they wouldn't keep any more secrets. Gabriel tells them he does not want to get involved in the case anymore and is out. After saying that, he leaves the bar.
Gabriel's associations, on the other hand, find Nathan's identity quite intriguing, and they tell them that they would help them. Instead, they attack Nathan and Annalise, who are then trapped inside a room in the bar. As other blood witches try to get them, Gabriel returns to the spot and rescues them.
Gabriel then goes on to express how he now wants to see the end of this turbulence, and the episode ends right there, leaving the audience with an arresting ending.
