  • I'll Light A Candle

    6.5
    Finally, they ended this Frank nonsense, and not even in a surprising fashion. That was one of the show's most odd storylines yet.



    As for the rest, the other odd sex scene of the night, Fiona and Craig was kind of funny, but their sexual tension was not even scripted well. The crazy racist old man was entertaining though.



    Disappointing, yes, but it still had some good parts.
  • The best show of its genre

    This show is like the vampire diaries of its genre! Can't think of a better title for it. It shows the true color of life no matter how dark it is! One of my fave show!
  • Great episode overshadowed by Frank's dark plot

    8.0
    I loved everything about the episode except for Frank's incredibly depressing storyline. It's hard to see how he could ever do anything worse.



    And I think I'd rather the writers didn't try to top themselves...
