Storyline

In a flashback, the origins of Louis' burn are revealed. Ben visits Vivien in the psych ward and admits to her that he now believes she was raped. The police interview Constance over Travis' death. She has little to tell them - other than she didn't do it - but her history of accidental deaths leave the police highly suspicious. She's off the hook when someone unexpected confesses to the crime. Ben is still upset with Violet for missing so much school and they agree that a new school has to be found. Tate has something to show her however. Written by garykmcd

Goofs

(at around 8 mins) As Constance reviews the crime scene pictures of Travis, his eyes are open in one picture and closed in the other. Even though it is not unheard of for someone at the crime scene to close the eyes of a deceased individual it would not be done in the midst of the crime scene photos being taken. See more »

Quotes

Constance Langdon: Now, who wants to say grace?
Tate Langdon: Oh, Mother, may I?
Larry Harvey: Oh, of course, son. I was hoping you would choose to become a part of this family.

A Better One
2 January 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Things get even nuttier. More over the top stuff that defies description. We learn how burn man got burns.

The funny part is, for a family that is nearly bankrupt and a doctor who has no patients, they don't seem to have much problem paying the bills.

This is actually one of the better episodes, but that's not saying all that much.

We find out who else is dead. OK My goodness this is one full house. Scary stuff in the crawl spaces and flies all over the place.

I really wish the writing was better.
