This episode freaked me out.
28 April 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

First let me bow to the other reviewers on this page when they said that this episode was odd. I thought that it could never be as strange as reported but I was proved wrong. This is an episode, after watching, the viewer is left scratching their head not knowing or believing exactly what transpired in the show.

The story involved a little boy named Timmy that was telling everyone that he saw a man fall from the sky and kill people with help from a witch type women. His mother asks Matt to have a talk with her son about telling untrue stories. Timmy will take the Marshal to the place as long as Matt agrees not to do anything while watching. The story is nice up till this point but is about to slip into a world of disbelief and troublesome fiction. I will leave it unexplained so that the viewer can decide what they make of this unusual episode.

I never really understood the story. I know they were wanting to go to Oregon but the excuse given is super thin and hard to comprehend. From a Indian girl named White Fawn to a large man jumping out of trees, this episode just freaked me out in more ways than one.
