A farm fantasy and imaginary friend free a farm girl from a mean country couple.
18 May 2007 | by (Petersburg, Virginia) – See all my reviews

This crypt episode titled "Four Sided Triangle" has a good blend of humor, anger, and romance that works well together. The plot is centered around an abused farm girl(Patricia Arquette before she became well-known) who works on a couples farm, yet she's in the hands and care of a mean country couple(Chelcie Ross and Susan J. Blommaert). From being beaten physically the problems begin to get worse when the man of the farm shows interest in the young girl in sexual terms. The only hope and escape comes in the form of a scarecrow who the young girl sees as her only hope really the best imaginary friend around and she believes he's real. All along this is only a clever scheme to break free, in the end just as you think the scarecrow has came to life, he has but the scarecrow dies quickly! The viewer sees how the clever farm girl has outsmarted the country couple as the episode ends with a shocking twist that frees her at last! This crypt episode is done in a clever and smart way that proves and shows it's always good to outsmart people to break away from their power and abuse. Remember brain power always wins, this scarecrow just needed a brain!
