"The Black Hand"

And so Audrey's journey to the Dark Side begins. William got what he wanted - he forced our protagonist to give Colonel Tigh Lincoln a trouble. And it didn't go well. Ultimately Audrey had to reactivate the Crocker's family curse (aside from killing the crying baby it was the only way to stop folks from dying). We now know that William and The Original Audrey used to set up complementary troubles - like Jordan couldn't touch anyone and Nathan doesn't feel anything. However, some troubles were so bad that they had to create Crocker's family curse as permanent fix. Gloria was right - Duke actually has a gift.

I expected Audrey would hide the truth about herself from Nathan and Duke till it would be too late. And they would feel betrayed. Fortunately, she came clean to both of them. Ultimately, it was Nathan who gave Audrey green light to do her thing.

When Audrey gave the trouble for the first time we saw the light and some part of the Original Audrey came back. Judging from the preview of the next episode (which will hopefully be only season's final not series') the Original Audrey will fully return. The question is what happens next? Surely Team Audrey will try to send William back through the door to other dimension. What will they do with the Original Audrey? Will they imprison her as well? Or perhaps Nathan's love / sacrifice will bring Audrey Parker back? I'm really angry we have to wait a whole week to find out!

Audrey - she doesn't have a healing ability. It was William who healed her. Also we got a picture of Audrey's version from 1901 - I loved her hat.

Vince - he's connected to the Heart of Haven (which is by the way the big Guard sign as I suspected last week).

Dave - he's adopted. As Duke said that explained a lot. No wonder, Vince and Dave are so different. [Spoiler] Also it looks like Dave will try to kill Vince in next episode.

The Heart of Haven - it requires 4 people to activate (two man and two women) I expect Nathan, Audrey, Duke and Jennifer will have to do the honour.

The Lighthouse - I think no one was surprised that Heart of Haven was located in the basement of the Lighthouse. After all we all knew the Lighthouse was a very important place in Haven - it's the first thing (after the lightning) we see during the opening credits of the series.

I give "When the Bough Breaks" 8,5 out of 10. I really liked it and I can't wait for "The Lighthouse".

What did you think about "When the Bough Breaks"? Did you like it? Share your thoughts!

Also if you didn't see it - I strongly recommend yesterday's Discover Haven Live Stream :)

William owned this episode!
Is it wrong that I really like him?

I like him too. When he came over to Nathan and said "What do we got?" I wanted to hug him.

If they wanted us to hate William, they should not have cast Colin Ferguson, he is just too likeable.

It always surprised me that he wasn't on tv more after Eureka ended

Agreed. Also as a side point. When William said "What do we got?" to Nathan. He then said "I've always wanted to say that."

Does this mean that he wasn't trapped in the barn all this time, and perhaps like Audrey, was living another life? Maybe there is another personality inside of him that was suppressed when his two goons were released from the barn?

Or maybe he's just been watching a lot of CSI since he got out. :p

Another good episode. It certainly had that prelude feel to it...where all the stars are lining up for that big bang that's coming. The more Audrey goes up against William, the more her resolve seems to be weakening. If it wasn't for Nathan & Duke I think she would just throw in the towel.
I liked that we are finally getting some back story on the Troubles. And we are inching closer to finding out who/what exactly Audrey is. The reveal about Dave being adopted was rather odd timing. Why did it take 4 seasons to mention this? I wonder if that tidbit has any significance later on.

Did anybody here manage to watch the Discover Haven Livestream after the show?

- You can watch it on you tube. There is a link in the review.


I suspect Dave's adaption thing will play an important part in the final.

And I agree with you, without Nathan and Duke support Audrey would just give up.

thanks for the link. That interview was awesome...they look like such a fun gang to hang out with!
Their comments about the finale have piqued my interest. I wonder what could be the big twist. If we all expect Audrey to go evil then that wouldn't be much of a surprise. There must be something else in store.

OMG that was a really intense episode. Darn, but now we all have to wait a whole week to get the last bit of the story, and I can hardly wait for that already. I'm not sure I'm all that happy for the evil Original to be back, but since it's Haven't ultimate backbone of the story of who and why Audrey is and helps, let's take a ride. Just really really hope she does come back to the good side, and that that darn barn cycle can be somehow cast aside and (please, let it be true) when season 5 comes around it's about our team free of that new Audrey each 27 yrs cycle for good, but instead 'stuck' with looking for some permanent fixes and cures for the troubles, until new bad comes or someting

I don't like the idea of Evil Audrey either. However, we knew The Original Audrey was coming since William showed his true, ugly face - so by now I kind of accepted it.

I hope Audrey will return to the Light Side before the end of season's final.

Agreed. Though part of me is thinking maybe she's faking it just so William stops. Not faking that she remembers, I think she'll remember her original self - remember not turn into - and use that to trick William into going through the door. We know she's good at putting on an act since she convinced Nathan (and the audience) she was Lexie.

That thought crossed my mind as well. She will either go evil mode or feign the transition to fool William. The finale will probably be a cliffhanger either way.

I fear the worst case scenario - the final ends with a cliffhanger and Syfy cancels Haven :(

I think she will be faking too.

let's just hope for that
