  • A fairly forgettable episode.

    This would be a forgettable episode if not for two things, both disturbing and uncomfortable viewings in very different ways.
    Firstly the scenes with Daisy and Ray will have you squirming, the guy is such a creap and the way he manipulates Daisy is very disturbing to watch.
    The other is a "comedy" scene in a morgue where Mason tries to identify his "uncle" who he thinks may have money stashed away somewhere. And it's just awful. Callum Blue couldn't be overacting much more.

    Reggie's constant moaning is also getting old. Now she's decided to try out being a goth, which pretty much means she is as miserable as ever but with black eyeliner. Maby they could have done something with it, but it's pretty much wasted here.

    Rube has a pointless reap with no connection to the theme or anything else in the episode, and it's not even amusing in itself. This doesn't help matters. Very little about the episode works. It's just a bunch of diverse ideas and scenes, some that work, some that don't, mixed together.
  • when people change...

    This was actually a very good episode despite some things being very off and out of character.

    The main issue in this episode is about a poor man dying and George wants to do the most she can for him but Mason ofcourse is only thinking of stealing whatever he had, as soon as he finds out there wasn't anything to steal he just left the poor guy's body like trash. But George couldn't, she paind for him to be cremated and later sprang his ashes in the river. Very nice deed Georgia!

    Meanwhile the show completely seterotypes the gothics...AGAIN. I really dislike that fact, gothics are portraid as brainless depressed idiots who only think about death which is FAR from true. Reggie becomes a gothic but as soon as she begins to talk about her sisters death Joy makes all the other gothics leave the house. To bad this show is stereotypical towards gothics, it makes me loose a little respect.

    And then you have the Daisy storyline which is both good and dissapointing, I can't stand Ray and he makes her flirt with a guy and make him cheat with her. Mason is also seeing the way she is changing and tells her that he still loves her but doesn't like her anymore. Ray is really ruin her and changing her into a cold bitca just the way he is.

    The episode had plenty of highlights yet it still left me a little cold at times. Great episode neverthless.
