Mystery, mystery, mystery!
21 November 2012 | by (Greece) – See all my reviews

Great scenery while a strange research in the woods, a weird and aesthetic mix of mystery and paranormal, quite surreal as the talking log gets a role here! Question marks about Laura's friends... Why would they want the clues...? To help or to hide sth..? Hmmm...we'll see. Of course, the mystery goes on in that episode... The story goes on with much suspense, as Mr Horne holds another secret (?), so he offers a surprising scene for us in the middle of this episode...! Also, Audrey unrolls her talent so greatly. Actually, there is such a surprising, loving, strange and humorous scene at the end, regarding Ms Audrey!!! Almost sure you'll want like crazy to watch the next episode just after this! Enjoy!
