Spoilers for 'In the Dark' Season 2 Episode 7 'The Straw That Broke the Camel's Back'

This week's episode of 'In the Dark' proved what depths Murphy Mason (Perry Mattfeld) was willing to go to so she could keep Max Parrish (Casey Deidrick) safe. After Nia Bailey's (Nicki Micheaux) contact at the prison was arrested, Max's supply was halted. This led to him being assaulted by those he sold to on Nia's compulsion inside the prison.

At first, Murphy decided not to deliver Nia's drugs after Darnell James (Keston John) told her to lay low so that he can work something out in order to take Nia down with the help of her rival, Josiah. However, when Murphy heard of Max's plight, she decides to smuggle in the drugs herself.

She first tries doing it through her seeing-eye dog, Pretzel, but when Pretzel is not allowed inside, she uses her cane to stash the drugs. Once she gives the drugs to Max, who understands Murphy is the reason he's alive, he calls Nia and tells her he doesn't want Murphy to deliver drugs anymore. However, Nia is impressed with Murphy's spunk and decides that she will keep doing it. What's more, Murphy will also start delivering to the women's prison. With Murphy getting more and more under Nia's control, fans are worried about her.

One fan tweeted, "Omg Murphy gettin herself in deeper & deeper," while another wrote, "And she doesn't think it's going to be suspicious that the same blind chick is going to various prisons to visit people when Dean is investigating her? Yeah, OK..."

A fan tweeted, "Murphy....this is a mess," while another opined, "Murphy doesn't do it do herself. She does it for Max." One fan asked, "Is Murphy a Nia in training?"

Meanwhile, fans are also worried about Darnell being thrown under the bus every time. A fan wrote, "It makes NO SENSE that Darnell does everything he possibly can to protect them and they always fk him over and put him at risk. He almost got killed because Max wouldn't leave town and got caught and here we go again because Murphy can't listen?" 

Another opined, "Darnell is the most wronged character... I know we're always supposed to feel bad for Max for some reason, but Darnell gets consistently screwed over by these people who are supposedly friends. He'll end up dead because he's never a priority. It's bullcrap."

'In the Dark' airs on The CW on Thursday nights at 9/8c.
