    This episode actually demonstrated the weakness of the 30-minute format. Deidre is a fascinating character, but we hardly get to know her before she and Eric seem to be falling for each other. Their romance goes too fast and this is really too bad because it seems that a great story is lurking just under the surface of this episode. Given some time to develop the characters and the situations, this could have been truly classic television.



    Given that, the episode is quite a good story if a bit saccharine for some tastes. This was a nice gentle oasis of peace in Eric’s tempestuous existence, and I enjoyed seeing him get this much-earned respite. I particularly enjoyed Deidre's comment that "There is nothing evil in these woods." It raised some interesting questions about the nature of the wolf.



    All in all, my only complaint is that they used 30 minutes to tell a story that could have easily been a four-part episode.moreless
