What to expect from the Axeman now??
14 November 2013 | by (El Paraiso, Peru) – See all my reviews

I understand the Axeman was the only way they could find Madison, but come on Zoe, seriously?!? You horrible little careless minion! 1) Why would you leave him in Cordelia's room to murder her (accidentally)?!? Uncalled for! 2) Let him roam the streets to go on a murder spree(nice touch).

You see in the next scene preview that he meets with Fiona, will seek his own vengeance throughout a possible love affair with Fiona after? Being that it was witches that rode him off??

Well, can't complain too much. Madison has been resurrected and even though she has no real recollection of what happened, I can't wait for her to A) slowly regain her memory and assist with a vengeance. B) or all is forgiven all is forgotten as long as her and her witch friends are in safe and no longer under the care or supervision of Fiona.
