The sound of a church bell!!!
25 August 2015 | by See all my reviews

This episode is good and its also on my favorite list of episode of season 1. This episode is pretty serious and for the first time we see the town arguing.We also see what can happen when a Small town like this start to bicker and fight it can mean the closing of the whole town its very dangerous. This episode also introduces a new character Mr.Kennedy SAM and Christie's father.The episode is about the Reverend telling the town that he would like to have a church bell everyone was for the idea until Mrs Olson had to step in again. She told the reverend that she and her husband would pay for the whole thing and that she would donate the plague.That's where the fight started bc no one ever putted their name on anything that they had build or gave to the town. And right there people start to choose sides and its here where things become dangerous. This episode is good and once again have a good lesson to it go give it a look this episode is perfect!!!! Now continue to episode 12
