  • A man gives birth to a mutant eye baby Dag hides the child and intends to raise him to replace his dead son. but is the baby dangerous

    following a bizarre and quite frankly seriously unlikley events a patient give birth to a giant eyeball.
    We see dag flash back to happier times
    playing in the garden with his half grasshopper son.
    We later discover the boy is long dead and the despair has been eating up dag for years
    and we just didnt hear a word about it before now.
    Dag hide the child from his colleagues and doesnt help with there investigation into a possible monster in the hospital.
    Dag is eventually discovered and refuses to hand over skipper
    until that is he bite him.
    An enraged dag beat the baby to death off any hard surface he can find case closed

    The description of how the grasshopper boy died was brilliant
    the stupid death of the eye baby was great
    the strange and suspicous behaviuor of dag was so over the top
    an other classic
