Even without the commercial, I think you could safely assume that he'd be back because that's what happens in TV shows. Much as I love Shea Whigham and I'm glad he'll presumably be in the second season, I think it would have been cool if his character never appeared again since it would have been different.He was in the preview for next week’s episode.
That makes sense and would be a good twist, but I don't think we avoid the classic moment of Mason unraveling Ennis on the stand (and maybe he reveals that connection). But then why did Birdy want to run away with Sister Alice before the 'resurrection?'If you want my guess its this..
The baby in the street IS Charlie Dodson, the real one. The baby found at Angel's Flight is probably that of the Chinese prostitute. With a lack of forensic evidence and no DNA testing you could easily swap one baby for another, especially if the dead baby is disfigured enough to be unrecognizable. The whole kidnapping plot was set up by Birdy, Ennis, Gannon, and Seidel as a means to refinance the church and create publicity for Sister Alice. Two birds with one stone.
It was Drake that tracked her down. I'm not sure it's an attraction, but more of a realization that both of them are lost souls seeking redemption.And what of Sister Alice's alter ego appearance? Perry somehow tracked her down, and there were hints of an attraction. Hmmm.
