Justin Prentiss was buried alive in Bright Arch, Asher MacLean's private camp-school for unruly teenager boys. It's based on discipline and team-work in contact with nature. Jane wins the kids' confidence by ridiculing abuse instructor Missy Jenkins. Grumpy, scary neighbor Marshall Winston complains about vandalism. It was the work of Z Krew, a secret society among the boys which they claim is run by the undead ax-murderer Zachariah. Patrick discovers other, real, partially dark secrets, and uses the power of the legend. Written by KGF Vissers

Did You Know?


When Patrick is examining the body at the start, he declares "the blow to the head" to be the killing blow. What he wants to say is that it is the "coup de grâce" - in archaic French, the "merciful blow", the final stroke to dispatch someone in pain (frequently a disabled opponent or colleague). What he actually says is that it is the "coup de gras", which sort of translates as "fat cut". See more »


Chief Elaine Brody: Do you have any actual facts?
Patrick Jane: Well, it's an actual fact that you dislike Mr. MacLean here because he's a tree-hugging, liberal wacko, who's probably running some kind of a cult, and he dislikes you because you're a small-minded provincial hayseed. Not that you are, necessarily. That's just what he thinks.

Nice Episode,reflects on the mentality of kids
17 June 2013 | by (Greece) – See all my reviews

This was a nice episode.The plot was really good and mysterious and the killer was not very easy to guess.

Also it was very good at showing how easily kids or even older people can be manipulated from someone who is clever with just a horror story.

The only thing that I didn't like was the last bit of Zachariah emerging from his grave as I find it a little weak to trick someone who invented the story and was clever enough to control all these kids like that so easily.

But it was a good episode and the acting of Simon Baker is very good as is the acting of the whole cast.It was a good penultimate episode before a great last episode of the first season.
