Sir Ben Kingsley’s ‘Pa’ had a character defining moment straight out of the Saw horror film handbook on tonight’s Perpetual Grace, LTD.

The following recap contains spoilers for Perpetual Grace, LTD Season 1 Episode 3.

Sir Ben Kingsley’s Pa cut off his own thumb, Saw style, on tonight’s Perpetual Grace, LTD to escape Hector’s custody… And that was just the opening of the episode! When Pa was speaking about ‘getting the rhythm,’ he clearly wasn’t playing around. Pa was already in the ice cream truck/van driving off with a mysterious makeshift bandage on his hand. It seemed par the course that he might hurt himself while using the metal tab to release his handcuff lock… Except he didn’t try simply patiently waiting until the cuffs would open, he utilized it to slice off his own thumb instead!

The revelation would be made known to viewers when Hector Contreras awoke and discovered Pa escaped, leaving behind blood on his cuffs dripping into his beer can. Hector poured the blood soaked beer out of the can to find Pa’s thumb floating out of it. Pa’s nothing short of a complete badass of a character if there ever was one. Afterwards, all bets were off on Pa’s ensuing plan.

It seemed logical Pa would go back to rescue his wife in Monterrey but instead he found Hector’s wallet in the van. Inside were photos of his family and the location of Hermosillo. At a crossroads, Pa would make a decisive seemingly impulsive decision to head on over to Hermosillo instead.

Sir Ben Kingsley’s Pa is not to be trifled with

At the conclusion of tonight’s episode, the ever increasingly unpredictable Pa would find Hector’s sons before the credits. It appears Pa has some trouble of his own as he made a call asking someone to wait, that he’ll have the money soon, only to be rebuked.

Meanwhile, Ma/Lillian would feign health troubles to get out of exercising with the rest of the prisoners. It appears she’s setting up her escape. Pa and Ma are definitely not just the ‘old couple’ Paul Allen Brown would have James believe would be easy to dupe.

In fact, at one point in the episode Paul admitted to James he essentially knew it would take 90 days for the money to transfer. That he was just ’rounding’ a number to get that 14 days figure. Despite, the soft white lies piling up, James decided to go all in by getting a rattlesnake bite anyway. James describing ‘having just two beers than going for eight’ deciding that tomorrow will be the day he’ll finally be ‘pure.’

90 minutes for James’ anti-venom or ankle bracelet doesn’t matter

James would have just 90 minutes to get the anti-venom in some kind of subtle comedic irony of not getting the $2 million dollars in 90 days. Stopping him from heading to the hospital however, was Uncle Dave. A man once jailed for a crime he didn’t actually commit, and now forced to live out his life in halfway houses and tell everyone that he’s a registered… Well, you get the drift.

Uncle Dave happens to be the only man in town who actually knows what Paul Allen Brown looks like, and as it turned out Paul had been speaking with him. Dave would show up without notice at the Brown household looking to speak to Paul while James searched for an Insurance ID. James’ time to get the anti-venom would wind down and during a phone call with Paul, he’d be told to call the police on the uncle. James seeing no way out did it, although very hesitant since the uncle just wanted to check up on his sister Lillian ‘Ma.

New Leaf would confront James in the emergency room, promising to take him out the moment his parents passed. Blaming ‘Paul Allen Brown’ for losing his parents’ life savings. James would tell him that’s messed up and promised to get the money back if he just helped him escape. He convinced New Leaf that it was Pa that was responsible. Thus James escaped, sans ankle bracelet! He and Glenn would go on an impromptu mission, with Glenn appointed to go to Mexico to give Hector his $2,000.

Hector Contreras’ bargain more complicated by the minute

However, things have gotten way more complicated south of the border. Hector gave the name of a Ramirez being in an ice cream truck going to Monterrey in order to stop Pa. However, since Pa headed over to Hermosillo, a different, innocent ice cream truck was taken out. Potentially, triggering a war if the people inside were made people rather than just simple ice cream sellers. Either way, Hector is now indirectly responsible for the mayhem.

Hector told James to find Felipe, an astronaut hopeful, hence the episode title, “Felipe G. Usted. Almost First Mexican on the Moon. Part 1” in Houston. Felipe ominously states at the episode’s intro that Hector messed his life up, it looks like his dreams will spiral. Despite, being on the top of his game in every stress test. At least for James, ‘Walker, Texas Ranger’ doesn’t know where he is for now…

One thing’s for certain, no one’s forgetting how Sir Ben Kingsley’s Pa escaped tonight anytime soon!
