Pulp Fiction Bad Guys - Lochdubh Justice
1 May 2018 | by GunnersMateSee all my reviews

While The Lockdubh Assassin starts off uncomfortably with out of town bad guys who look like they have seen Pulp Fiction too may times, the return to Lochdubh (for the viewer and a previous resident) sets up the rest of the episode. There is a lot of mystery and misdirection throughout, which makes the episode a fun ride. The story end (which may or may not be the actual end...) provides another dose of Lochdubh justice (as we have seen in earlier episodes), and is both macabre and satisfying. Worth watching more than once to see if any of the surprises were telegraphed. Enjoy.
