This episode to me was a step back from last weeks episode. This episode suffered from a lot of things mainly
1. The writers thinking that the viewers are ignorant.
2. The writers think the audience are easily squeamish with the blood effects.
3. Writers now a days think that all horror is just gore, look at all the blood effects used.
The writers seem to think that we the viewers don't mind horrible predictable writing. We all knew the gun carried by Harry Siegel's assistant was going to come into play somehow. They just made it to big of a point of saying hey look he just bought a gun, hey look here is the gun again in a poorly written innuendo just plain bad writing. There was too much of a build-up to a badly written bad ending as well. I mean come on we are not that stupid there was no possible way the gun shot that Harry Siegel's assistant shot was accidental seeing that he seemingly lined him up and shot him. I will give this show one more chance next week when Eurekas Sheriff Carter (Colin Ferguson) comes to play.
