One of the best episodes of the Season
10 July 2009 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

One of the best episodes of the Season, mainly because of the fantastic performance from Patricia Clarkson. Easily one of the best performances of the show.

This episode is about a woman called Suzy, witnessing her neighbor killing another woman and losing the ability to speak due shock. Her stupid husband calls in the nearest doctor - which happens to be their neighbor.

To hide his secret, he declares her insane and has her locked in an insane asylum where she is pretty much helpless and unable to defend herself. Her husband eventually caught on but then it is too late and he is murdered in front of her.

Finally, when the doctor is ready to put her out of her misery his pills give in and he dies of a heart attack in front of her.

The episode is excellent, very tensed and reminds me of the very first episode of the show in terms in cinematography and acting.
