Storyline

Steve gets a 'friendly' visit from Eddie Gault, a wife-killer he put away, who just finished his prison term, now on parole, and hints he's after vengeance on Steve and his family. So Steve moves back into his memories-riddled old room with dad, who has a hard time with a new alarm system, making the Sloan beach-house a regular false alarm destination for the security firm. Smooth talker Eddie, a skilled electrician, takes an easy but low-paid job as orderly in Community General, making a good first impression on everyone; even when told about his record, Norman can find no valid excuse to fire him. Gault even gets a restraining order served to Steve, who warned Eddie's new wife, met trough correspondence in prison and already beaten. Gault proves he can get past the Sloans' alarm and a Labrador retriever guard dog; warning him off only gets Steve suspended. Gault picks on other targets too... Written by KGF Vissers

Great episode
6 March 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Some of the second series feels a bit flat and aimless, but this episode definitely stands out.

This show is usually quite fluffy and a blend of humour and drama, but rarely is it serious. I wondered if it didn't do serious because it just couldn't manage it. That's never bothered me, I like the lightheartedness and occasional silliness of the show.

This episode definitely surprised me, though. There's very little humour in this episode, but it's very well written and the actors really shine.

I really enjoyed this episode, Jack Coleman is the perfect combination of menacing and manipulative, but with so much charm, he's just fantastic. Probably my favourite out of the second series.
