    I hope I'm the only person who's reminded of that dumb Eve song (Who's that Girl? Eve's that Girl.) when I read this episode's title.

    Perhaps-- I certainly don't know the song in question.

    So if I recall correctly from the preview, one of the girls (Ariel, IIRC) is possessed and does something criminal...

    I thought of the Madonna song and the Eurythmics song.

    It did feel somewhat rehash-like, but on the other hand, the cast always puts in such strong performances that it was still pretty decent to watch.

    Oh god, that was L-A-M-E!

    Sorry, rehashed, strong acted maybe, but still incredibly bland and lame.
    Including the last second turn-a-round stuff AND Joe's insistance that there was nothing wrong. He's been in a cave the last 5 seasons apparently.

    Did not really like this.

    What? How could you not like that episode? I thought it was great. The storyline about the revenge might have been a little cliched but all in all I thought it was a lot better than a lot of other episodes. It wasn't the very best out there but it certainly was not the worst. Sofia Vassilieva's performance in this episode was amazing. Her acting is extremely convinving and she's very talented. She's only 16 so she's going to go very far in her career. The only other problem I had was Joe not believing Allison, but then again Ariel is his daughter. You think he would be a bit more understanding though, considering the number of times Allison has been posessed and how she is always right. All in all, I loved this episode. I don't understand how some people didn't like it.

    I enjoyed this episode. Not the best one I've seen, but definitely not the worse. Sofia's performance was amazing. Her acting really shined through. I actually felt this episode went by very fast. I would have really liked Joe to have witness and experience his daughter's possesion, like he has witnessed and experienced Allison's weird behaviors. I also would have liked Ariel to have been a litte bit more mean and creepy.

    Yes, the theme was re-fried. The same thing happened to Allison before and I guess non of the characters remembered that, but I like the episode anyway. The acting was good as always and the storyline was well developed. Medium is not always perfect but it never disappoints me.

    The actress who played Ariel was amazing. I thought that possession is only for those souls who agree. I didn't think that Ariel agreed.

    It seems odd that, given all the crazy stuff this family has been through, Joe wouldn't agree to quiz Ariel on something more difficult than her birthday, which she could have easily memorized from her driver's license.

    Great acting by the girl who plays Ariel, though.

    Hmm, I liked the creepy beginning (especially weird cuz Daumer's parents live in the same city where I'm from)...but Ariel wasn't actually possessed by a serial killer! She was possessed by someone who was murdered and wanted revenge.

    I agree the episode wasn't so original...the worst was that the victim was yet another acquantaince/friend of an acquaintance of Devalos. Does every person in his life die or get in terrible trouble?!
