'Alcatraz' recap: Do the Wrong Thing
When he shows up in 2012, he goes to fancy country clubs and woos ladies who look like his old girlfriend. He kills them, but seems confused. It's like he's compelled to act out a scene over and over, without understanding why. He seeks refuge with a former inmate and friend named Emmitt, who thinks God must have given the still-young Clarence a second chance. When Rebecca and the rest of the team latch on to the case, they notice some things that don't quite match up with the original murder in 1958. They come to the conclusion that Clarence was innocent of killing his girlfriend, but guilty of the new crimes. They again wonder why the '63s are coming back deadlier than they used to be.
In flashbacks, we see Dr. Beauregard using Lucy's techniques on Clarence, except in reverse. Instead of taking away a traumatic memory, as Lucy wants, Beauregard implants Clarence with the memories of a killer. Both he and the Warden seem to believe that Clarence is actually innocent, which makes it all the more evil of them. But dramatically intriguing, at least.
