We watched the last season . Right ?, 30 October 2012
Author: Semih Masat from Istanbul/Turkey

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

The episode was good but i hate something about series like this.

They show last years Halloween at the beginning and correct me if i wrong but that things didn't happened in last year right ?

Because we watched it?

I don't know about Halloween but, is't it is just 1 day ? Did they showed us a second day of halloween of last years ?

This is not happening in just this series. A lot of others have this problem. When they do this , it actually bothers and annoys me.

And i am going to say again, i like this episode. Acting was actually better than last seasons Halloween episode :)
