    Having seen everything, you can see how well this show was planned. Nothing Like Lost or the craswling dead were they make it up as they move on. Awsome, simply awsome.

    Haven does it again. The show introduces a very clever premise with everyone seeing their worst nightmare when they see this girl, but yet again the execution and the planning of this episode was really poor. Once the explanation came out everything got ruined and it became more about shared afflictions than about anything supernatural.

    I do like the continuing mystery as to what is going on with Audrey Parker #1 and Audrey Parker #2, that is a nice little arc the show has going for it, but they need to work on continuity and consistency. If things cannot be entertaining for a full hour not just the first 10 minutes the show is doomed.moreless
  • Fear & Loathing

    Fear & Loathing was a great episode of Haven and I enjoyed watching the episode because it had an interesting story and there was all sorts of crazy happening. I thought it was interesting how it jumped right to the memorial service in the beginning. The New Audrey looks into the others Agent Howard and both Audreys make an interesting discovery. Some of the characters had growth and development and secrets. I liked the troubled powers in this episode. I think the show has potential for this season and I look forward to watching the next episode of Haven!!!!moreless
  • Can it get better than this?

    This was one heck of an episode. The case was exciting and scary and there are more mysteries than answers.

    I have to start with the way Nathan and Duke's relationship has evolved. How they are learning to put their differences aside, forget the past and try to help each other in a town that looks like having no future at all. Both actors' chemistry is amazing and his scenes are fun to watch.

    The puzzle is a new mystery. And a good one. I wonder who could've been helping Ian. I also wonder what is Nathan's biggest fear. And what Nathan did for Jackie is something you would expect from someone like him, someone who is not selfish and someone who is brave enough to live with an affliction.

    I'm glad Nathan talked about the kiss on the cheek. I was expecting this moment. Audrey looks like the ice queen but I know she cares. Three questions: Why does Dave fear Lucy Ripley? And where's the Agent Howard? And why did Dave tell Vince he's not sorry? Anyway, my favorite moment was the last scene. I'm team Naudrey, so it was a nice thing for Audrey to thank Nathan for the sacrifice he had made and for acknowledging what he had did. I wonder how their relationship will be affected with Audrey being the only person Nathan can still feel.moreless

    • Music: Broken Things (Sweet Talk Radio)

    • Injoke: The scary clown seen by the new Audrey at the bus station is a reference to the Stephen King novel It, where the villain often takes the form of Pennywise the Clown to lure in children. The fact that people see their worse fear when they look into Jackie's eyes is also taken from that novel, where people see It as whatever they fear the most.

    • Injoke: The name of Duke's vice principal, Dolores Bachman, is a reference to Stephen King's character, Dolores Claiborne, in the novel of the same name, and Richard Bachman, the pen name he used to write several novels.
