But there’s one outlier: a woman named Reece (APB‘s Natalie Martinez), who got separated from her young daughter, Leah, when they were still underwater in the Pacific Ocean. Instead of washing up on Thorn Beach, Reece regains consciousness on a fishing boat near Port Canaan, and she doesn’t learn about the other bodies until she hears about them on a TV news report later that day.
She decides to make her way to the town, where she holds Jude at gunpoint in his car and forces him to “take [her] to the dead.” He does, but Reece doesn’t find her daughter among the corpses — and just when she begins to question Jude about refugees that survived, she’s interrupted by Homeland Security agents who try to detain her… and she decides to unleash the superpowers she apparently has, taking the agents down with super-strength before literally flying out of the building. (Well, it’s more like a Jessica Jones mega-leap than actual flight.)
It turns out Reece did a real number on the men she attacked; X-rays show that they might as well have gotten hit by a truck, and that’s enough to get Emma believing the refugees’ stories. If Reece has these abilities, is she a member of the Apex species? And could there be more super-powered people in this group of 47 survivors? For now, we only know about Reece, who ends the episode by breaking into Jude’s house — but he knows she’s there, and he gets her to drop her gun before asking her to recount the inevitably insane story that led her to his town.
