the beginning of something new
14 November 2013 | by See all my reviews

Many questions that seemed to be the premise of the entire show seem to have been resolved and now new things start to happen. This show introduces new characters and new plot lines the may begin to set the premise for the rest of the season (I assume; I still haven't seen the shows beyond this one.) All the new characters in this episode, however, threw me off. Suddenly we have so many different things to consider and expect! The woman in the red dress excited my imagination of what possibilities might exist when you let yourself go outside the boundaries of town. Sometimes reality does match movies.

However, although I respect the show and the beautiful atmosphere it creates, this episode was a little much which is why I only rated it a six. This rating should not discourage anyone from watching the show further. I can't wait to watch the next one!
