  • The discovery of Kelly's body leaves many questions. Meanwhile, Hunter is still hanging around. ****SPOILERS****

    ****SPOILERS**** Events may be out of order as I'm typing as I recall them. However, the final few events did occur at the end of the episode.

    Episode three, the body count continues to mount and still no clear suspect.

    So far, only one body has been discovered, Kelly, the local girl whose mother was also murdered by serial killer John Wakefield. Sheriff Mills informs Abby of Kelly's death personally. Abby is convinced that foul play was involved. The sheriff has an autopsy performed on Kelly, her eyes have a strange red tint to them. Henry is still struggling with the fact that Thomas can't stand him and thinks he's not good enough for Trish. Henry also discovers that Hunter is on the island and wonders if Trish still has feelings for him. Henry test's Trish's loyalty by sending a fake message from Hunter asking for a meeting. Trish makes her way to the room but stops at the door, she glances at her engagement ring and realizes that Henry is the only one for her. Henry is in the room and sees her shadow under the door. Sully attempts to apologize to Chloe and Cal but is rebuffed. Later, Chloe invites him to the resorts spa for a treatment. Sully is being coated in a honey and herb mixture and he thinks that he still has a shot at Chloe. Cal comes in with a feather pillow and dumps the feathers all over Sully, sweet revenge. Shane hits JD with his truck and kidnaps him. JD is in the bed of the tuck when Sheriff Mills comes around to question Shane about Kelly. Abby also comes by to talk to Shane and discovers JD. Shane surprises her and Abby tries to talk him down by telling him that Wakefield killed Kelly. Abby's dad, the sheriff, busts in and takes Shane into custody, he also suspects JD in Kelly's death. Hunter confronts Thomas about the lie he told Trish. Hunter offers to leave for $50,000. At during cocktails, Henry confronts Thomas about Hunter and says there is nothing he can do, he is marrying Trish. Hunter text's Thomas offering the payoff again. Thomas meets him at the pier and hands him a check. As Hunter drives off in the boat, he discovers Uncle Marty's money and gun, he goes to stash it and is blown away by a rigged shotgun. Sheriff Mills goes back to Kelly's place to have another look around. He discovers several articles about Wakefield, the investigation, and him. The coroner calls and says the substance that made Kelly's eyes red was ink. The Sheriff is looking at an article in which a picture of himself has red eyes and the message "You found her, now find me".

    Another taut episode from beginning to end. Only one death this time, the slimy Hunter. Not at all upset about it. Now Sheriff Mills is aware that something is going very wrong on Harper's Island. Tune in next week to see what the investigation will entail. How many more will die and will there be a clear cut suspect?
