  • possibly the goriest episode of the series

    a faith healer is perfoming a miracle that's being broadcast - curing a boy of his blindness as long as he believes. but before the healer can lay his hands on the boy, a man walks onto the set and removes filmy contacts from the boys eyes - inserted to make him look blind. disgraced, the healer leaves and winds up in an alley where (in a sequence i don't remember very clearly) he finds a snow-white glove and puts it on, then runs into a horribly sick man. when he lays his gloved hand on the man, he finds that he actually CAN cure this man of his illness, but then the illness is absorbed into him, causing the glove to deteriorate and his hand to rot, graphically. he quickly finds a woman walking her dog down a dark street and transmits the illness to her so that she starts to decay instantly. the preacher's fame regained, and apparently disprovable as a fake, he's healing people with horrible illnesses but only as long as he can find someone afterwards to deliver the illness upon. each time, his hand rots more disgustingly. the trio are summoned, finding out that it's a cursed glove. jack meets a friend of his, the man who originally debunked the preacher, on his boat discussing what to do. but then it's revealed that jack's friend has a rapidly developing and horrendously visable cancer and he wants to steal the glove so that he can be healed, then deliver his sickness to jack.moreless
