  • A man who cheated death wants to deliver death to others using an unusual, and ironic, method

    A rather odd episode but one that is quite interesting as it uses the back story of a man that was almost executed for a crime he didn't commit. Bitter by his treatment, he uses a cursed dentist's chair to take his revenge on those responsible for his near death. A nice twist is that the bad guy actually tries to keep his murders using the dentist's chair secret by selecting various people at an orphanage he works at for his guinea pigs. When asked, he claims his victims ' ran away' ( ignore the pile of smoking clothing...) and proceeds onwards with his murderous spree until he meets his match in Ryan, Micki and Jack. The episode is resolved in an ironic way with the killer's abilities turned back against him in a rather gruesome manner.

    This is one episode that stands out in this series. Well written, good acting and an episode that fans of this series should definitely check out.
