Script was more in line for a horror movie-- but well done
24 August 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In an episode that is more in-line with a horror movie, this show is a pleasant change of pace from the usual western story.

Victoria and Audra while on the way to a wedding in San Francisco, stop in Abbottsville to visit Victoria's brother-in-law. But when they exit the coach they are met by Eric Abbott that tells them that the brother-in-law has lost his mind and has to be locked up in his room to avoid hurting himself and others.

When they arrive at the house, the doctor is leaving the locked room and tells Victoria that she cannot visit the man at this time. But Victoria believes something is strange in the old house. And now we are left with odd sounds and shadows coming from the locked room at the top of the stairs.

The episode will keep the viewer glued to the scene waiting the next view from the room. And by the end of the show all the pieces will fall into place and the viewers know that they have been entertained. Good Watch.
