Just saw episode 7 "The River" - this is where Brother Justin leaps from the bridge and has the encounter with the two Russian kids.

uh, I don't get it. Maybe it's tied in later, but at the moment, I'm not getting what Justin has to do with anything at all. I know he's shared a dream with Ben, and there seems to be some sort of connection there, but I'm not getting the relevance.

What was the thing with the two kids at the river about? Why did Justin's sister call him Alexi when he called her at the end? As she walks up the stairs you see a picture of the two kids with a different father (different than Justin I mean)

And lastly, why did the blind seer smack the bearded lady with the cane after she told him about Ben healing the big guy?

Those two Russian kids are Brother Justin and his sister. He doesn't remember much of his early years, and those memories are starting to creep back in.

The blind seer smacked the bearded lady for no real reason, other than to start emphasizing that he's "bad."

At first, I thought the kids by the river were two of the dead orphans that died in the church fire. The girl asked "why are you chasing us?" and then "where are the others?" I thought more on it, and remembered that on that bridge, Justin muttered "I killed him", so I wondered if he wasn't the Russian boy.  I also remembered his sister calling him "Alexi" when he called her on the phone.

I figured that might be the case, regarding Lodz hitting the girl. I just watched the next episode, and things are starting to make more sense. (Lodz is caught by Samson having a conversation with 'management').

Brother Justin's role may not be totally clear at this point, but after watching a few more episodes you will clearly understand where his role is within this story.  they did a great job of setting up the final few episodes for this upcoming season.

Just thought I'd let y'all know that over the last two days I went back and watched the entire first season.  Every time I watch it, some new stuff pops up.  I have a feeling that the Kinights of Templar stuff will play a bigger role this season.
