Adam tells her to call the police. Mercy can hear Christy’s pleading and tells Adam to let her come, even though she knows she will bring drama into her home.
Later that night, someone knocks on the front door. Mercy tries to wake Adam, but he seems to be under a spell and will not wake up. She grabs her gun and goes to the door.

Mercy knew that Beauclaire was really Gwyn ap Lugh, son of the Gray Lord and ruler of all of the fae. Mercy makes him promise he won’t harm her or anyone else in the house if she lets him in.
