  • Shot In The Dark

    A good episode here. A tad out of character with the filmmakers (usually Haven rarely has visitors) but I was intrigued from start to finish.
  • Better than usual episode

    Better than usual episode, where 2 ghost hunters investigate the town and threaten to expose the troubles to the world. Meanwhile a werewolf type creature is ripping out hearts.
  • Thank goodness it wasn't Blair Witch

    When the episode first started with the two guys doing their real time video I was ready to turn off the TV. Personally I can't stand Blair Witch type episodes of anything. (I only watched Blair Witch for about 5 minutes before giving up) But then they went to normal video and I really enjoyed this episode. I even didn't mind the two guys doing the video recording and investigating Haven's troubles. The story was fairly good and Audrey's recovery, along with William's, drove that part of the multi-episode plot line along nicely. It is great seeing Nathan and Duke getting along as well. I like Nathan's stability and Duke's craziness as they play well off each other. And Jennifer has taken a much larger part in the overall troubles plot line. The creature itself was fairly decent except we didn't get to see much of it. A darn good episode moving the whole story line along nicely.moreless

  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (9)

    • Anderson Harris: Hello, Seekers. It is I, Anderson Harris. Welcome to Hell. Arrghh.
      Seth Byrne: That's a weird voice, dude.
      Anderson Harris: Thanks, buddy.
      Seth Byrne: We'll cut it out.

    • Seth Byrne: They say, "It was a freak accident," or maybe insect migration. Or--this is my personal favorite--"a gas leak." I mean, a gas leak? I mean, what? How many gas leaks does a small fishing village need to have before they get new pipes? Is something a man might wonder.

    • Dwight: So what do you think?
      Gloria: Well, it'd be a cute rental, if it wasn't totally wrecked. Claw marks, smashed TV, the whole "bull in a china shop" motif.
      Dwight: About the victim, Gloria.
      Gloria: Abby Banks, schoolteacher, and by the looks of the rug, she just finished eating dinner. Chicken tikka masala.
      Dwight: Can we focus on what's still in the victim?

    • Gloria: The why—that's up to you and your, honorary deputy over there.
      Duke: Actually, I prefer consulting detective.
      Gloria: Oh, a Sherlock fan. Well, what does your deductive reasoning make of this?

    • Dwight: Here's my offer. We take your equipment, put it on the ground, and you watch--politely—as I smash every piece of it. From there we grab your buddy on the way to the edge of town and we light your van on fire. And if you don't like that plan, I can always leave you inside the van. Deal?

    • Dwight: I can have Jennifer digging through those files by the time we get to the station.
      Nathan: Jennifer can do that?
      Dwight: As far as I can tell, everyone younger than me can do that.

    • Nathan: Why'd you bring them?
      Dwight: No choice. They've got some gadget that can help us locate the rougarou. It measures the polarity of a... something.
      Seth Byrne: Yeah, thank you.

    • Anderson Harris: What the hell happened in there, huh? Maybe the opposing frequencies created a compressed static field and, I don't know, "poof," maybe?
      Vince: I'm sure that's what happened.
      Anderson Harris: Oh, well that's reassuring.

    • Duke: So is this your first time destroying a supernatural monster with a magical book.
      Jennifer: Yeah. How do you feel about dating Hermione?
      Duke: Well, we all have our stuff. I snore when I drink red wine.
      Jennifer: Yes, you do, very loudly.
      Duke: Very loudly.
