The blood can already be seen on the cultivator before Harold cuts his face with it; this is then furthered when he lightly brushes it against his cheek, leaving a small speck of blood not indicative of a cut (this is again seen before he actually cuts his face). See more »

Harold and Audrey
8 June 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

We have two significant sets of events. The first is the plan and execution of the plot to rescue Audrey. While doing some yoga, Cooper finally sees the note Audrey left him the night she went to the One Eyed Jack, which gives him a leg up on his efforts to invade the den of iniquity. While all this is happening, Donna and Maddy hatch a plan to steal the diary Laura wrote which is being held by Harold, the spooky orchid grower. This is probably the most violent of all the episodes so far, with a few bodies left behind. We also have a couple court scenes with Leland pleading not guilty and Shelley having to take Leo back to her home. She looks at him living for an eternity and not being able to collect insurance. The episode concludes with some really great action and another unanswered set of questions.
