Psychological torture from the Hobo
17 October 2009 | by (Vancouver, BC, Canada) – See all my reviews

I really was a little shocked at Hobo's tactics in this one. Usually he is all about the helping; this episode seemed more like a quest for vengeance or justice.

The drunk driver is confronted by Hobo in several ways: 1. Hobo brings the hat of the woman he hit to his front door, and rings the doorbell to show him.. that would freak anyone out! 2. Hobo continues to circle his house, freaking out the drunk driver so much, he not only fires his rifle at the dog, but tries to poison him ! 3. Hobo knocks the drunk drivers bulldozer into gear at his workplace, causing some destruction... again, that's a pretty radical action for the Hobo 4. Hobo hides in the back of the drunk drivers truck bed, and when he pops up, causes the drunk to get in another car accident...

So, to summarize, Hobo brings the hat of the woman he believes he has killed right to his door, incites him to fire his rifle angrily in a busy residential neighbourhood, sends his bulldozer on a path of destruction, and instigates another car accident.

This episode could totally be re-made as a revenge movie
