Remember know your brides background, if you don't you just get axed and hacked up in an old family tradition!

In my opinion "Lover Come Hack To Me" is one of the better episodes of tales and one of the first happening in the first season. The plot is nice in this episode and you can tell the writing is good as the story unfolds with secrets and the story told reveals a gruesome family history. Anyway you have a new married couple Charlie(Stephen Shellen) and Peggy(Amanda Plummer)who after their wedding decide to take their honeymoon to a private getaway. It's on a dark rainy night which is a perfect setting for a tales episode they arrive upon an old castle like a mansion style house. Once inside the drama and tension starts to build in this episode as the two make hot and passionate love which keeps Charlie at bay, because his real goal is to murder Peg for inheritance money, anyway Peg says they just conceived a child. Very strange thing next Charles starts to dream and see the images and passions of back to the night that Peg was conceived and oddly it happened in the same house. Yet Charles sees that in the dream Peg's mother gives her lover a brutal fate after making love. When Charlie awakes he then discovers Peg has the same thing in store for him, as she's just continues an old family tradition of hacking the lover after conceiving! Overall really a well written episode that tells a story and reveals the secrets and it showed good drama and tension. It proves everyone has secrets and skeletons in the closet and you should know a person's background really well because family history carries on!
