    Just love how this shows all makes sense in the big picture. And acting is still great.
  • Friend or Faux

    Friend or Faux was a good episode of Haven and I enjoyed watching as Nathan and Audrey try to uncover a peculiar mystery involving a man who appears to be in multiple places at once. This episode had a good story, interesting character development, and intriguing plot development. Nathan is on the verge of losing his job due to the Reverend's meddling and the web grows thicker as Duke seems to realize Evi may have a connection to everything that is going on. I look forward to watching the next episode of Haven to see what happens!!!!moreless

    "Friend or Faux" was another solid episode of Haven in this second season. They had a clever premise with the constantly recreating individual, and having the majority of the show take place in the "maze" was a welcome change as opposed to having a story and then having all of these filler scenes.

    And I liked Duke being a driving part of the show tonight, but they need to stop with the emotional heart to hearts at the end of each episode. They do not work.moreless

  • QUOTES (11)

    • Audrey: Okay, so who'd you piss off this time?
      Duke: Maybe he pissed me off. Is that a possibility?
      Audrey: Yeah, it's least likely.

    • Audrey: Duke, you're not telling me everything.
      Duke: I am secretly afraid of bananas. I've never been windsurfing naked, and deep down in my heart, I know that Bigfoot is real.
      Audrey: Hi, Nathan. All you've missed is Duke not telling me everything.
      Duke: I take offense to that.
      Nathan: Sorry I missed it.

    • Audrey: Oh, great, there's a Henry he hasn't told us about. Fantastic.
      Nathan: It's Duke, what'd you expect?

    • Audrey: So was it Henry you were lying about at the Gull?
      Duke: You know, lying is such an ugly word. But yeah, I lied.

    • Duke: I promised the kid I wouldn't go to the cops.
      Audrey: Somebody's trying to kill a kid and you promised him you wouldn't go to the cops? Seriously?
      Duke: All right, I see your point.

    • Cornell/Copy: He's so easy to imitate, you know. I just do me and take out the cool parts.
      Audrey: So how does all of this work? You know what's in his head?
      Cornell/Copy: I have all of his memories, but the balls are mine.

    • Cornell/Copy: So the whole talk was really just to distract me?
      Audrey: At the beginning, yeah. But then... no.
      Cornell/Copy: When I kill you, eventually, I'm not going to be happy about it. But it's not going to stop me.

    • Nathan: We're lost.
      Cornell: I would feel better with a gun.
      Nathan: Well, that makes one of us.

    • Nathan: You meet me in the atrium.
      Audrey: Copy that.
      Nathan: Don't say "copy."

    • Audrey: Haven PD is on their way. Give us Nathan and we'll be gone, giving you time to get away.
      Duke: Umm, just so you know, nobody, myself included, buys it when cops say that.

    • Duke: Well, I guess that answers that. Nathan definitely has a copy.
      Audrey: Yeah.
      Duke: Yeah.
      Audrey: And this one still can't dance.
