Major spoilers ahead for 'Limetown' Season 1 Episode 7 'Acceptable Loss'
There is a madness brimming inside of Lia (Jessica Biel). She cannot let go of Limetown or what happened there. Portraying a constantly degrading morality, Lia meets Mark (Omar Elba) at his home hoping to convince him to allow her to resume her reporting of Limetown.
Earlier in the episode, after Dr. Max Finlayson (Louis Ferriera) is shot dead following his interview with her, Mark had forbidden her from reporting on Limetown any more. He doesn't wish to be so closely connected with the deaths of several people.
But their meeting takes a sinister turn quickly. A small, quick tussle leads to Mark hitting his head on the table and bleeding to death. In the twisted scene, Mark is gasping for breath begging Lia to help him, but she doesn't even call 911. She just watches him in a mix of emotions.
After he breathes his last, she makes it seem like they had sex. When she takes a cab to the airport, she is crying but leaves him a voice note that makes it seem like the two just happened to have sex and that she hopes it won't make things weird between them.
Each death on 'Limetown' is now somehow linked to Lia. But Mark's death is special. It highlights Lia's madness and blind ambition. She isn't simply curious of what happened those many years ago in Limetown, she absolutely needs to know what happened. It is unfair to deem her desperate at this point. Lia is selfish and evil, casting her ominous presence on those around her.
The main reason the mystery of Limetown is so close and personal to Lia is that after her uncle Emile (Stanley Tucci) left for Limetown, she never saw him again. In a way, Lia's quest to uncover the truth about Limetown is a quest to find her uncle. But it is coming at a great price yet she persists. Is it going to be worth it?
Two new episodes of 'Limetown' will be available every Wednesday at 12 p.m. PT/ 3 p.m. ET on Facebook Watch.
