  • We are learning

    We are learning the facts through small hints. Vince and Dave are protecvting this town.
  • Predictable but ok

    nathan didn't have to feel the money to tell it was fake it was pretty obvious from looking at it..

    audrey and lucy are more than likely the same person imo i knew as soon as the foot scar was mentioned audrey had it could it be a coincidence ?

    felt duke got off rather easily considering how much of a big deal he made...

  • good episode with a huge mistake..

    this review will have spoiler parts... consider yourselves warned...

    It was a good epiosode where we learned more about the relation between Lucy and Audrey. Also it was fun to see Duke and Nathan together...

    But do you remember the part where Duke showed the fake money to Nathan? He TOUCHED it. Then said it's fake. But wait a minute wasn't he supposed to feel anything? How can they not see this!

    It's a good show and i enjoy watching a Stephen King novel adaptation at TV, but they really need to pay more attention to things like these otherwise it's gonna turn out a mess.moreless

    This show is really all not that bad. I trashed it at first, but I have found myself opting to watch this show moreso than other shows. I have watched every week and this is not only Syfy's best show, but something that is actually genuinely entertaining. Tonight's episode was a little all over the place, but it featured a signature element of any spooky or geeky show, a kid with powers, and that is never a bad storyline, despite it being such a cliche.

    Good penultimate episode that gave us a little perspective on the mysterious woman. Hopefully the finale is a good one too.moreless
  • Interesting trouble

    What an episode.

    First of all, I wonder how Lucy helped all those afflicted. Because the way Audrey helps them is to prove that they are not weirdos and that in some cases they are people who need to be understood, like in this case.

    I was glad to see more of the Duke/Nathan background. But what Nathan told the cause of hating Duke so much or is there something else? Because this is reason enough... Anyway, it was nice to see them help each other out.

    This "trouble" reminds me of the X-files 7th season episode called "Rush", where kids used speed to do bad things. So I guess this trouble was genetic and affecting men because the boy had it too.

    I find it funny that Audrey refers to Lucy as her mother. She's not sure. It could be her mother, but at some point in this episode she says she's her mother. I feel sorry for her, not having any information of where she's come from, who her parents are. It's like she's appeared out of thin air. Of maybe this is why she has that scar on her foot.moreless

      Duke: Nathan, that was 25 years ago.
      Nathan: You all slapped me on the back, remember that? "Go talk to her, talk to her." I walked down the hall, and I got up to her, and I felt like my heart was beating out of my chest. I finally opened my mouth enough to tell her that I liked her too...

    • Tracy: Like that movie?
      When Audrey mentions poltergeists, referencing the 1982 movie Poltergeist, where evil spirits haunt a family in a tract house. The movie's director, Tobe Hooper, directed the TV movie adaptation of Stephen King's novel, Salem's Lot (1979).
