One of the worst episodes
29 July 2017 | by RadianteSee all my reviews

Like the episode 4, it's focused on Laura/Essie/Emily Browning. And just like that episode, it is pointless, useless, boring. For sure i am realizing I don't like at all Emily Browining and her way to act. The character is really annoying. All this contributes to lowering the enjoyment level of the entire series.
