The job market here is a killer
4 June 2015 | by (Indonesia) – See all my reviews

In a strange and sudden development. The Burkes are handed new jobs and lives effective immediately. No application needed and the method is unceremonious, aside from some cake. This episode focuses on their respective newly acquired daily lives. In contrast with brash threats before, they are presented with more carrots than sticks, although there is still atmosphere of underlying coercion.

Ethan is forced to don the mantle of sheriff, in a sort of "keep what you kill" fashion. This actually gives him more opportunities to investigate as well as additional perspective of the town. Ethan might obtain some valuable insights in the price of a harrowing duty. Matt Dillon delivers a slightly different personality, he's still determined to find the truth but he's more careful on his decision now that it concerns more than his own survival.

Ben, on the other hand, is abruptly enrolled in the local high school. He is exposed to many reeducation methods by Megan Fisher (Hope Davis), the teacher who is formerly a hypnotherapist. Davis looks good on the role, she's all smile and pleasantries, yet showing strong persuasion to the young mind. The residents go to such length to make Ben comfortable, including gifts and a possible honey trap.

As her son is getting acclimated on the town, Theresa wanders around and soon discovers there's something amiss beneath the niceties. The overall tone has softened, Ben and Theresa have had better performance on last couple episodes as the troubled family. Now they seem a bit puzzled with the new environment and the chemistry with other characters aren't that strong, although it is expected when people pushed to new situations, so it does work to the show's advantage.

The episode presents more characters and new angles, it also keeps the tension going as Ethan is handed problematic choice at his first day on the job. It might not be as intense as the last, but it's still a good continuation.
