  • A father tries desperately to protect his son from himself and others despite having his wife hot on his trail with the help of a social worker.

    To be honest, you could say that the ending was predictable. But at the same time, you could argue that the mother just wanted her son, not knowing that he was a werewolf. Or, that you didn't know that she was a werewolf too. I guess with anyone being fulfilled by this episode, you would have to let yourself be open minded. The best scene for me was when they showed the boy walking towards the social worker from the dark. What added a little pizzazz to it was when the mother told the father she would be back for her son, they showed a quick glance at the boy by the door with an eerie look on his face. Excellent.
