Keonig a sensitive
12 September 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I like the episode, however I think having John Koenig afraid of something more evil ,than having the explanation he thought up the ghost, because he felt guilty about leaving his best friends to die because they caught a deadly virus with no cure was a cop out..John Keonig running away from ghost?? and these ghost did nothing except repeat: You killed us John Keonig you left us to rot..why would John go into to a complete mental breakdown and curl himself into a tight ball on the floor for that ???now it would have been more interesting if John imagine himself having the virus, that killed his BBF's , that he begins to sees himself in the mirror his face rotting away or if the Ghost threw him around a bit throwing him against the wall making it look like he was going mad or maybe just having him being thrown around not seeing the ghost would have been even better to enhance the episode and made it more believable of John's fears BUT better still if John imagine and is haunted and tortured by Balor now that would have been awesome....also the showdown.. I would had both throwing things with their minds at each other and then have John finally win at the end instead of a stare down who will blink first I wanted more action.....and why did John looking very comfortable being comforted by Helena after a exhausted battle with his ugly ghost finale suddenly bolt up like as if to say did I leave the water running????..we all know they both love each other more in season 2... so that reaction was just out of place and ruin the mood ,they should have done more to have John keep his mental ability powers and have him learn to retrain his mind to use his new found gift even in secret to use them at another time...overall It was Entertaining
