After a passionate kiss between Jeff and Skye in the previous episode of "Cult," the episode "The Good Fight" sees a major character land in the hospital! Here's what happened.
About last night...The episode opens with Skye in the shower. She hears whistling and opens the curtain. Billy Grimm is there, holding up a knife. She screams and shuts her eyes. When she opens them, Billy is gone: The drugs from the last episode have yet to work their way out of her system.
Skye apologizes to Jeff for her drug-induced smooch at the party. They both decide that Lexi, the woman who slipped drugs into Skye's drink, is to blame. Skye has another hallucination of Billy, and then collapses. Jeff rushes her to the hospital, but the doctors can't identify the drug. She appears to be having an allergic reaction, but the doctors aren't sure that they can treat the comatose Skye.
Introducing Skye's motherWhile Jeff instructs Lexi to find a sample of the drug so that the doctors can perfect a treatment, he meets Skye's mother. She is very upset that her daughter is unconscious, and she's seething with rage because her daughter was exposed to drugs while investigating "Cult." She tells Jeff he can leave, but he refuses.
Detective Sakelik arrives on the scene, having seen Skye's name linked with a drugs-related admission at the hospital. Jeff begs her for a sample of the drug, but she refuses to help him. She tells him to think about the video message from Nate, then leaves.
Skye's dreamIn her drug-induced haze, Skye is transported to Billy's farm. She interacts with characters from the show, and then is transported to a meeting with the mysterious Steven Rae. But when the light stops streaming into her eyes, it isn't Steven Rae at all: It's her father! Her father tells her to "give up" her search. In the real world, Skye "gives up" on life and stops breathing.
Saving SkyeAfter breaking into Detective Sakelik's home and stealing the drugs she had stored in her freezer, Jeff returns to the hospital to find Skye barely breathing. The doctor's create a treatment that should help Skye recover, but her condition is still critical. Eventually, Skye fights her way back to consciousness.
Several hours later, Skye and her mother talk about her father's disappearance. Her mom warns her that she probably won't like what her investigation will uncover, but Skye won't stop looking for answers.
ConsequencesAs the episode draws to a close, Sakelik takes her revenge on Jeff for invading her home: Jeff's friend and employer Bert is rushed to the hospital with a gunshot wound.
