At least where Grandma Margaret and the Langstons are concerned. Of course, the show can't let us learn anything without immediately throwing it into question.
Every plot thread started to come to a boil this week, with everything going wrong in exactly the way the show's been building to all season. Well, except for Janine. She blew her top earlier than expected.
This episode proved that we have a few plots too many this season. This episode wandered through a bunch of them, before driving home that we'll be seeing a mob full of pitchforks before the season's out.
I don't know about anyone else, but I've been waiting for this show to resolve the question of Marty's relationship to the Thompsons pretty much all season. We ended season one on the revelation of that, and we haven't heard anything about that until now. Just in time to dispose of most of the Thompsons entirely.
Last night was a bunch of smaller moments with one major revelation: Apparently, coming back from the dead is a choice you can make. And the only one who knows that is Grandma Langston, who continues to be the creepiest person in Arcadia.
Take a back seat, mystery of why people are returning, we have got to sit through a dinner that is the exact opposite of getting "closure." Plus, Grandma? Knows a lot and reveals it in the scariest possible way.

And it's all Sheriff Fred's fault. Turns out this whole season's really been about him — and while it wasn't anything you saw coming, his actions all made a surprising amount of sense.
If last week's episode of Resurrection was all about exploring the characters, last night's installment was a bullet train to Plot Town. Elaine had it out with Caleb, who insists that more Returned are coming. We finally learned what's haunting Marty, but didn't really care. And the most recently returned Rachel had a…
Resurrection continues to spend a lot of time delving into the emotional lives of the returned and their loved ones. This is the episode that dealt the least with trying to figure out how this happened and why, and the show is absolutely the better for it
Last night was more of a bunch of loosely connected vignettes than an episode, but Pastor Tom had the best one of the bunch.
Last night, Resurrection premiered and valiantly tried to put its mark on the "loved ones back from the dead" idea. And, thanks to the cast and a commitment to a exploring these ideas in depth, it mostly succeeds.
