Watch an all-new episode of HBO’s Lovecraft Country tonight

The mystery of Tic’s time at war has been solved… sort of. Last week, Lovecraft Country left Chicago in favor of South Korea as the episode focused on Tic’s stint Daegu and in particular, his relationship with the mysterious Ji-Ah, played by Jamie Chung.

During the Korean War, Ji-Ah was a promising young nursing student who lived with her mom. However, Ji-Ah lived with a huge secret. When she has sex with men, her “Nine Tails” come out and infiltrate the mind of each man, viewing their memories before Ji-Ah kills them.

It turns out that Ji-Ah is possessed by a kumiho, a nine-tail fox that kills humans. Ji-Ah’s mother had a child out of wedlock, which brought shame to her family. Ji-Ah’s stepfather molested Ji-Ah as a child, and in response, Ji-Ah’s mother went to a shaman to send the kumiho to kill the stepfather. In order to become a human again, Ji-Ah must kill 100 men.

While working in the war, Ji-Ah and her fellow nurses are brought to an American base. Unfortunately, it’s a horrifying first meeting as American soldiers attempt to find a Communist spy, who they believe is one of the nurses. Atticus and the soldiers kill three nurses including Ji-Ah’s best friend.

Sometime later, Ji-Ah meets a wounded Atticus in the hospital and decides to exact her revenge by making Atticus her 100th victim. However, Ji-Ah and Atticus fall in love. During a sexual encounter, Ji-Ah’s tails come out and she sees a vision of Atticus dying in America. A spooked Atticus ends their relationship and returns to America.

The episode ends with Ji-Ah and her mother visiting the shaman, who says many more people will die, not just Atticus.
