Oblivion and Truth
16 November 2014 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

Sheriff Lucas Black learns that the contract of Dr. Matt Crower with the local hospital will be renewed in a party to raise funds for the hospital. When the drunken Dan has a car accident, the comatose Doreen has a slim chance to survive. Dr. Crower is haunted by recollections of his wife Lily and his daughter Claire due to the similarity of situations. The evil Sheriff Black proposes a deal to Dr. Crower: he would give a chance to him to go back to meet and say goodbye to his beloved wife and daughter. Dr. Crower seeks oblivion and accepts the deal. Meanwhile Caleb suspects that his neighbor has buried a corpse in his pumpkin patch.

"To Hell and Back" is another episode where the evilness of Sheriff Buck is cruel, promising oblivion to Matt and giving truth instead. It is creepy to see Doreen in coma saying "Little, Bitty Pretty One", but actually it is Matt's nightmare. Caleb has a great lesson about the damages of a gossip from Gail. This episode is completely out of sequence in the DVD box. My vote is seven.
