  • Best episode on the series so far, even if Scudder isnt what we expected.

    9.5
    Well I\'ll have to say that this has been the most interesting episodes I have seen of

    \"Carnivale\". Not only because we finally see Scudder, but we can see Managment fighting.



    I think this is a great series, its goood to see something new and out of the ordinary on tv, the only downside is that the story develops kinda slow, which in this episode wasnt the case and I might add that this one had a very good ending, not like so many before, in this one I am actually desperate to watch the next episode.moreless
  • Scudder finally shows up here! This episode marks the greatest climax in the series.

    8.5
    Ben and the carnival group arrive in the city of Damascus, where Ben finally finds his father Scudder and the Management is going to realize his major objective. In my opinion, this episode has very impressive moments, in fact I'm think is the most notable episode since "The Day that was the Day". I'm recommend to every person who loves this show.

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • In the scene where Scudder is in the room with Management and Ben, Management jumps out from behind the curtain onto Scudder's back. At one point, we see Management with a mask over half of his face. Later, no mask in on his face. Then we see the mask again. The second time we see the mask, Scudder rips it off of Management. Obviously an editting goof.

  • QUOTES (1)

    • Scudder: I never wanted to be a part of this madness. I... I just wanted peace and a family. But you can't just up and quit. You can't run away from who you are.
