Servant Season 4 Episode 1 Summary
The Turner family’s nanny Leanne (Nell Tigerfree), who may or may not have supernatural powers, stars in a slick new title sequence to kick off the new season. The camera pans over the Turner house and we find Leanne with the baby outside on the roof in the midst of a biblical downpour. In the opening scene, Leanne frantically cleans the Turner house and meanders through Sean’s Gourmet Gauntlet merchandise. Dorothee returns home today and Leanne prepares for the celebration with party supplies and enthusiastic cleaning.
In the previous season’s climax scene, Dorothy fell backwards down a flight of stairs. Leanne did not openly cause this tragedy, but the family clearly blames her and her supernatural influence. Now she wants to make the right impression and bakes Dorothy her favorite cake. Julian Telephones to inform them of their estimated time of arrival. He’s obviously drinking again and explains that they’re being delayed because of the endless paperwork they have to sign. Julian instructs Leanne to get flowers from the car. On the way back from the car, the front door seems to be ajar, someone is in the house.
director Dylan Holmes Williams creates a sense of foreboding as Leanne searches the house. She turns off the TV, which is playing an episode of Gourmet Gauntlet, and spots the intruder in the TV’s reflection. She attacks the stranger and runs to the street to safety, but there are more enemies waiting for her there. Leanne hides in the car and contacts roscoe Her group of devoted followers has been removed from the park and can no longer protect her or come to her aid. In her panic, Leanne sees fleeting glances Uncle George in a trench coat and then has a vision of the now deceased Aunt Josephine in the car with her.
The Church of the Little Saints have been after Leanne for a while now, and the cult members are beginning to get bolder in their advances. As she surveys the empty street, Leanne doesn’t know who to trust. A man pushing a hot dog stand stops in front of the Turner house and an innocent jogger passes. Leanne takes this opportunity to leave, but the two strangers clearly belong to the cult and immediately attack her. Leanne stabs the man in the neck with a pen and traps the jogger’s fingers in the car door. Trapped back in the vehicle, the cult members gather around them and bang on the windows in a claustrophobic nightmare scenario. Leanne beeps the car horn erratically until they all dissipate.
It doesn’t take long for more cult members to take the stage. There’s a surprisingly tall man and some creepy-looking identical twins. The tall man tells Leanne to come back to the church, and then more strangers surround the car. Leanne has an epiphany and realizes they can’t hurt her. She feels invincible at that moment and decides to fight back. She manages to start the engine but is unsure how to proceed. They stuff leaves down the car’s exhaust and she begins to choke on the exhaust fumes. A few pigeons land on the street, pecking at fallen hot dog buns. Leanne turns the car into a man, and then hundreds of pigeons appear, as if summoned by Leanne herself. They attack their opponents.
This plague of pigeons quickly deters the intruders. In the fray, a man’s eye is even ripped out. The cult members flee or drive away, frightened by the carnage. Leanne screams as they run away. An eerie fog is soon replaced by torrential rain and Leanne returns to the Turner’s Building. Some of their followers arrive in a taxi, although they are far too late to support their leader.
Back in the safety of the house, Leanne cleans up the mess and tries her best to cover up the break-in. She throws the burned cake in the trash and prepares Dorothy’s bedroom. An ambulance arrives and Dorothy is wheeled in. Wearing oversized glasses and a stern expression, she ignores Leanne’s well wishes. sean gives Leanne a disparaging look as well, and then Julian brings in the baby and wryly comments on the day’s pain.
Leanne goes to her room and discovers one of her followers watching over her from a street corner. She asks Julian about Dorothy’s injuries. Her spinal injuries are treatable and she might regain most of her mobility, but might not be that good, it’s unpredictable. He seems discouraged, but Leanne tries to cheer him up. She believes Dorothy will recover now that she is home. Sean is equally somber and initially denies Leanne the opportunity to take care of Dorothy. Sean emphasizes that Dorothy needs her space. She clearly blames Leanne for her injuries and her current predicament.
Upset by the gymnast’s cold reaction and the chaos of the day, Leanne releases some of her pent-up anger. As a result, the light bulbs burst and the basement floor cracks again. These cracks extend from the basement onto the sidewalk and end at the street. Her powers are now entering the outside world, who knows what effect this will have.
