One of the things I love about this show is that they take normal fears and expound on them. We’ve had Bloody Mary, Werewolves, Vampires, ghosts and numerous other legendary monsters or urban legends.
So naturally people in furry costumes is the next step right?
This is very much a run of the mill monster hunt episode, but that doesn’t mean that it isn’t a great episode. We have a compelling ghost story (somewhat along the lines of Yellow Fever back in season 4– awkward guy, gets killed by some jerks, then tries to get revenge from beyond the grave), we have Donna– who as always shines, and we have some scary haunted costumes.
If only she was also Paleo. . .
Seriously though– I wonder about the first victim. It’s one thing to dress up, but who in their right mind owns this many creepy costumes?
Yes the clown is super creepy, but no less than ANY of the other costumes. Sam’s continued fear of clowns after all the scary/world ending things he’s seen amazes me though.
The boys though figure out that not just one costume was haunted and after the first bunny wearer died they managed to save the others that were infected, but just like the soulless people that Amara is leaving behind I don’t know what to say about the girl that murdered the coach. She did murder him and I don’t see how she’s going to get out of that. Plus what school has a mascot like that? Yeah they let her go, but seriously I don’t see how that’s going to work. They know who put on the costume right? The clown maybe I can see as a little less likely to be found.
I enjoyed the classic ghost hunt though, of course they touched a little on the whole God search and the quest to end The Darkness. The big things were the fact that Sam is praying to God to try to figure out what the visions mean (and he prays like 4 year old learning his prayers) and it seems that the answer is that his visions are from his time in the Cage.
Does he need to break open the cage? Will we see their long forgotten half brother any times soon? Do they need to trap the Darkness in the cage too? Will they make an even bigger mess? Most definitely.
If we get Adam back though I want Lucifer back too. I miss Lucifer.
