Episode Summary

A Jewish temple and its people have been forced to endure a great deal of intolerance. However, the perpetrators suddenly find themselves being victimized and by a creature not unlike the legendary Golem. The EGB investigate, but they make little progress. It turns out that the rabbi's son is responsible for this supernatural Golem. While his motives are understandable, his creation unfortunately just doesn't know when to stop – using increasingly destructive force. Innocent people are even now in danger and the EGB might not be able to bust this ghost.moreless

  • A So-Called "Preachy Toon" that works.

    Preachy Toons are what I consider an episode that tries to teach the veiwer some lesson like guns are bad or recycle. Despite their good intetions, they usually fail, but this episode got it right. The preaching takes a backseat to a neat use of the golem myth and Gerrit realizing how racist his old friends are even though he's had good memories with them. The ending surprised me because I was expecting the racists to change and some sappy speech when Roland (whose Black) saved them, but they don't and he almost smacks them. That's the way it goes sometimes.moreless

  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (1)

    • Rabbi: Such secrets were clearly not meant for us. We can not fight hate with hate. Or violence with violence. We must always remember that.

  • NOTES (3)

    • Garrett decided that his old friends weren't worth sticking around for after they decide to vandalize a Jewish temple for fun. He agrees with Kylie, Eduardo, and Roland that those guys were possibly racist.

    • We see some of Garrett's past for the first time, and just how much he likes to take risks. He even goes parachuting off of a building with his high school buddies.

    • Production Supervisor Shannon Muir's comments:

      - A very strong episode with a very strong message about hate and racism. One of the most controversial and poignent episodes to date
