‘La Brea’ Episode 6: Eve stops Levi’s rescue mission when Gavin is unable to rescue survivors
Gavin manages to do it with the help of Dr. Nathan finds Ella and even comes to Izzy that his rescue mission to rescue Eve and Josh is still going on. As his visions of the other world become clearer from moment to moment, Gavin’s attention turns to the relationship between Eve and Levi, as he becomes uncomfortable with the fact that they are close. Back in the other world, the camp realizes that they need a better way to harvest food and protect themselves as the storm ruined their supplies. Suddenly they realize they are being spied on and, fearing what happened to Eddie, they track down the intruder who happens to be the little child who helped them in the settlement. The child introduces himself as Isiah, and Eve and Ty see him as the perfect opportunity to make peace with the settlement.
It turned out that 60 years ago a sinkhole opened in the sea and a ship struck through. When the passengers made it to the other side, they were far from peaceful, which led to conflict until they eventually broke up. Eve and Ty trust these people quickly, but Levi is still nervous as they found the Mohave mission scientist’s body in the settlement and Silas, one of the men, was seen at the scene of Eddie’s death. Levi sniffs around and finds Eddie’s wallet, causing the adults to argue again. However, they learn that Isiah was suddenly kidnapped, causing them to put their differences aside in hopes of finding him.
Silas is the first to find him – and the woman who is dragging him away is none other than Dr. Rebecca Aldridge. Silas calls her by name, suggesting they know each other and even threatens to hurt her if she doesn’t leave Isiah. It’s too late before Eve and Levi arrive at the scene – they find Rebecca bleeding and Isiah and Silas missing. Levi recognizes Rebecca from the Mohave Mission but is confused that she wasn’t one of the nine who fell through the whole thing. Paara can nurse her while she demands to see Eve and explains to her that Silas is not who he claims to be.
In addition, Isiah is the key to everything. Eva is confused and Rebecca explains that Isiah is Gavin. Back in modern times, Ella’s home awakens familiar memories in Gavin’s mind until he finds an old sinkhole right outside the door. And suddenly it dawns on him that he actually comes from the other world himself.
