And that’s exactly what happened in Episode 3, after Will and Angie agreed to spend some time apart.

Will Trent Season 1 Episode 4 begins at Stone Mountain State Park in Georgia. An injured man stumbles through the woods while a man and woman record a podcast about the ‘howling man’. In the distance they hear a shot and then a car crash. And as they investigate, they learn that a couple, Judith and Henry, hit the man with their vehicle.

At the hospital, a doctor examines Faith. Will claims she fainted and hit her head while Faith claims she just fell. The doctor mistakes Will and Faith for a couple and asks her if she might be pregnant. But Faith makes it very clear that they are not dating and she is not having sex.

In the waiting room, Will gets a call from Amanda, who tells him that the park police have him on the Stone Mountain case. But Angie and Ormewood will help Will, and Angie is already in the hospital with the man later identified as Arthur Tealy. She informs Will of the situation and they realize Arthur was tortured. Before he dies, Arthur tells Angie that “Timothy” did this to him.

After Ormewood finds out Will is working on the case, he freaks out. He calls him a “vampire vulture,” but Ormewood has no say in the matter.

Will, Faith, Angie and Ormewood travel to the crime scene where they interview the podcasters. They reveal that another car – a green pickup – almost ran them over. Searching the forest, they find a bloody rope, Phineas Lathrop’s driver’s license, and Phineas’ corpse.

But there the suspect was holding and torturing Arthur and Phineas. Faith finds a journal filled with a Bible verse written multiple times by different victims. And they track a kneeler out of space to a specific church.

Will and Faith talk to a pastor at the church and find a job listing on the bulletin board for men who want to “change their lives.” At the bottom of the flyer is the Bible verse – 1 Timothy 3:8. It’s clear the killer used the ad to lure his victims.

Angie and Ormewood find another potential victim – a man named Duke. Will and Faith go to where Duke was last seen, but Faith nearly faints and we learn that she has been diagnosed with diabetes.

The pastor reveals that the church gave shelter to Judith years ago before the death of her first husband, who beat Judith and her son Tom.
