The Antichrist
15 April 2017 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

Moira unsuccessfully tries to seduce Ben again. A police detective visits Ben with Hayden's sister Marla that accuses Ben of killing her sister. Out of the blue, Hayden appears in the room and tells that she is living with Ben. A woman called Elizabeth Short comes to a session with Ben and he asks her to make an appointment for the next day. Elizabeth proposes to pay with sex but Ben refuses the offer. Vivien's doctor calls Ben and tells that each twin is from a different father in a rare medical case. Ben tells Hayden that he does not love her and she poisons Ben telling that Luke had an affair with Vivien. Ben visits Vivien to insult her of betraying him. Constance learns that Tate raped Vivien and she confronts her son. Travis has sex with Hayden and when he says the he loves Constance, she stabs him and he becomes a ghost. Constance visits Vivien in the mental institution and then she calls Billy Dean. She asks what would a ghost conception and she receives a scary answer. Ben confronts Luke about having an affair with his wife and Luke tells that he is sterile. When he sees Moira, she is holding the rubber mask and Ben sees her older and she tells that he is finally seeing the truth.

"Spooky Little Girl" is an episode where Ben finally seems to be aware that the poor Vivien is a victim. The evilness of Hayden is out of control and now she kills Constance's lover Travis. Will her action have a consequence? But the best part is the revelation of Billy Dean about The Antichrist. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Spooky Little Girl"
