Pure, Otherworldly Evil
13 October 2014 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Dr. Matt Crower is investigating again Merlyn's case and concludes that she was not murdered by a shovel. Sheriff Lucas Buck decides to get rid off Matt and he goes to Judge Streeter plotting a scheme against the doctor. However the judge refuses to participate and his gambling addicted wife Charlotte feels the evil power of Sheriff Buck. Meanwhile Dr. Crower saves Lucas from a mysterious woman that wants to shot him. The woman named Angela claims that she is Sheriff Buck's mother and that evil must be destroyed. She manipulates Dr. Matt Crower to convince him to kill Sheriff Buck. What will be the fate of Dr. Matt Crower?

"Dr. Death Takes a Holiday" is gloomy and wicked episode of the "American Gothic". The physical damages of Sheriff Buck to Angela, Charlotte and Dr. Matt Crower makes this episode probably the most tragic. My vote is seven.
