  • Pretty good but something goes wrong...

    I don't really know where to begin this review because the episode leaves me feeling confused. It's mostly a good episode with an excellent beginning but it then falls apart for a while, leaving the viewer somewhat uninterested and wishing the episode was over. Then it delivers a few sporadic good scenes amongst the average ones, and then has a good (and dark) ending.

    A man called The Judge is behind the cases of several murders, involving dismemberment. He is acting through a couple of young men. When he passes judgment on someone he orders the others carry them out. The Judge is arrested and taken into custody but eventually gets out, only to be killed by Bardale, who has been working for The Judge. Bardale sees The Judge as weak and nothing more than a pig. As he's taken away at the end of the episode, we see The Judge's body half-buried in the hog pen.
