Storyline

Caleb is intrigued by a strange "potato boy," a deformed child who lives alone in a creepy house in Trinity but whose sweet singing voice can be heard in the distance. Meanwhile, we get a little insight into Deputy Ben's frustration with his job and having to lie for Sheriff Buck's misdeeds, Selena Coombs' own personal fall from grace, and the guilt that Dr. Crower carries with him for the death of his wife and child.

Forgettable Episode
22 September 2014 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

"Potato Boy" is the nineteenth episode of the "American Gothic" in the DVD Box of the Complete Season. However I have decided to follow the sequence indicated by IMDb to make sense.

In this forgettable episode, nothing important happens. We just see Caleb intrigued with a deformed outcast boy that sings all the time with a sweet voice and visiting him in the end; the promiscuous Selena in disgrace with the inhabitants in Trinity and getting closer to the needy Caleb; and Dr. Matt Crower depressed with the death of his wife and child. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): "Potato Boy"
