Recap: "The First Bite is the Deepest"

A Nosferatu-masked killer haunts Allison to lead off dream in this week's episode of Medium. Graced once again with the lovely Anjelica Huston in a return visit as Cynthia Keener, the private investigator, this was one heck of a fun show. As promised, Rumer Willis also appears in this episode as Bethany, all grown up and angry. And the surprise guest star of the night is the strapping Balthazar Getty as Nosferatu/Christopher Sypes.

The basics: A trip down memory lane as Allison's dream takes her back several years to when Cynthia was summoned to a location in the desert to find young Bethany buried alive. The kidnapper sports a Nosferatu mask, and a bite mark on his hand is crucial to note. Allison arrives at the jail, where Cynthia has been living unhappily for some time now, and tries to enlist her assistance in finding Bethany. Cynthia riles hard against Allison, and in perfect Greta Garbo fashion, cries that she just wants to be alone.

Eventually, Allison wins her over and manages to get Cynthia to throw on some civvies and venture to the desert to save Bethany from making the biggest mistake of her life. And at the end, Cynthia ends up hugging Allison. Their relationship has always been kind of love/hate. Glad it ended on a happy note.

Every once in a while, someone will end up in Devalos' office screaming bloody murder and threatening never to vote for him again. This time it is a wealthy real estate agent whose wife is missing and wondering why the DA's office is refusing to do anything about it. Days later, a more sheepish Christopher Sypes calls Devalos and says his wife is in Mexico and all is right with the world - except that it isn't for him or his wife.
