A flashback to to 2010 shows the previous owners of the house, Chad and Patrick, who are attacked by the man in the rubber suit. In the present day, it's Halloween and Vivien and Ben are getting little interest in the house. Their real estate agent, Marcy, suggests they hire a fluffer, someone who can give the house a little something extra. Tate tells Violet about the abortionist and his wife, Charles and Nora Montgomery, whose baby was kidnapped and murdered by a boyfriend seeking revenge. Addie wants to dress as a pretty girl for her trick or treating but tragedy ensues. Vivien realizes that Ben has been in touch with his ex-girlfriend in Boston. When she suffers severe abdominal cramps Ben rushes her to the hospital where a scan reveals her to be in an advanced state of pregnancy and not the few weeks she thought. While they're away, Larry Harvey shows up at the house demanding his money. Written by garykmcd

Gay Spock Proves He Cant Act
1 January 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

OMG! This episode now moves into gay porn.

This show really is horrible on so many levels. The house owners have all this bizarre stuff whirling around them yet they appear to be brain dead to it all.

So in this episode gay Spock proves he can't act. Why is it it's OK for a gay guy to be over the top stereotyped gay in a TV show? Isn't it still offensive? Or maybe that's how gay Spock acts when he's not Spock.

In any case, after watching 4 episode now, I have come to believe this show is all hype ad no real substance.

Oh, and the down syndrome girl is still being used. I find it revolting that they abuse her like this.
