This second season of Reaper is one of the best of any show I've seen in a while. For the fifth episode we have another entertaining story with four plot lines about Sam and his crew. I really like the plot construction of these first five episodes.
Sam and the boys must bring a young women who thinks she's a Vampire in using a stake of course to capture her. No problem right? Wrong! This one has just left an adorable baby behind and the boys have to figure out what to do with her. By a stroke of luck Tony comes by for a visit and has always wanted a baby. He and Steve were trying to adopt. Problem solved. Nope just started.
Sock and Ben are dealing with a little problem as well. Sock is having trouble controlling himself when he is around his step sister. His step-sister Kristen gets to do a little singing (Eriko Tamura is a pop singer in Japan by the way) doing karaoke in front of the TV. Ben notices Sock saying inappropriate things out loud in front of Kristen and he and Sock decide that getting Sock some testosterone blockers is the answer!!! Kristen seems totally oblivious to what Sock is saying or his feelings for her which is really strange, but she stops Sock from taking them in the end. As far as Ben is concerned we miss Nina this week.
The third plot twist is Sam's Dad keeps hanging around now that he is undead. He's bored. In short he moves in with the boys which should make for some fun. Also you get the feeling that maybe the Devil is not telling the complete truth about Sam as well. Wait until Andi finds out about him!
Speaking of Andi, that is the big plot driven piece for this week. Good ole Morgan shows up and spills the beans to Andi about Sam also being the Son of the Devil. Andi gets really angry and well as you know Hell hath no fury like a women scorned. So she and Sam are on thin ice at this point. Dumpster duty again? We'll see how he fares on this as time goes on.
Now back to the baby. We know the boys will do the right thing and after much planning and conniving it all comes down to Sam charming the Devil into allowing the baby to stay. It also helps in showing Andi that maybe Sam is not the evil guy Morgan or the Devil think. So everything is back to normal until next week...
A great episode for character and story development and enjoyable to watch.
Thanks for reading...
