Ian was a haunted and mentally unwell human being after being kidnapped by his father when he was younger and raised in the most brutal condition in the woods. His upbringing led to his calculated and evil torture of Angela and husband Todd Keith Power in the finale. Ian and Todd became embroiled in a bone-crushing fist-fight and just as it appeared Ian had the upper hand, Ian was caught in a bear trap — reminiscent to how his father died. Emigen was signed over entirely to Anne after Sean breached the terms of their contract in episode nine, WTF. If that technique ever leaked to an exhaustive list of every major biomedical researcher and innovator on the planet, there would be nothing left to patent. Nothing left for the pharmaceutical industry to kill. After being manipulated by Anne to bring these memories to the forefront of his mind in a bid to separate him from her biological daughter Lisa, Sean was willing to be sentenced for the murder.
In a gambit for control, Lisa tries to turn the tables on her tormentors. Cracks appear in Anne's cynical facade, and Ian plays a sick game of house. The shadows threaten to swallow up all certainty as Sean shuts out Lisa, and Marcos tells the truth. Angela and Todd dig into Ian's murky origins. Putting their trust on the line, a couple considers a proposal from a notorious investor: a night with Sean in exchange for funding Lisa's startup.
What/If: Season 1 Episode 2 Cassidy’s SMPE MNDS Tee
Enter Cassidy, played by Daniella Pineda. She isn't directly under Anne's spell, but she's still undeniably affected by those who are. In Anne Montgomery's case, this means offering a young scientist, Lisa Jane Levy , a staggering investment in her med tech startup Emigen for one night alone with her husband Sean Blake Jenner , after which the couple is never allowed to discuss what occurred that evening. Of course, Lisa and Sean are the ones getting embroiled in this little experiment, but Cassidy, Emigen's CFO, probably isn't going to just stand by as her partner's life starts to implode. She'll have to make sure the company stays on track while Lisa deals with any potential consequences from making a deal with Anne, which may not work out too well in Cassidy's favor.
