Episode 3 of The Rain, titled Stay in Control, opens with Rasmus testing out his new power to release the virus at will. He successfully sends out black viral smoke and then stops it, staying calm the entire time. Every time he’s released the virus in the past, it’s been because he was emotional and out of control.
After the opening theme, Rasmus stands in the doorway of his room and stares at Fie as she works on the cure in the lab. It’s not creepy at all.
We learn about Fie’s background in this episode. Right now, she’s remembering that time in graduate school when she went to a bar with her boyfriend and did shots all night. Urban legend says she did 30 shots, but she denies it later. She was a star student and scientist, which made all of the mediocre mean girl scientists jealous. How dare she be good looking, smart, have a boyfriend and know how to party?
