Sarah and Helena have managed to escape from the Castor compound, and arranging with Mrs. S are awaiting Benjamin's arrival in the Mexican desert to retrieve them. However, they are surprised to see that their retriever is Mrs. S herself. This meeting allows for a showdown between Helena and Mrs. S, the former who wants to kill the latter for selling her out. With Cosima's new relationship with Shay being strong, Cosima is having problems dealing with Delphine, whether it be on a professional or personal level. Cosima feels like betraying a request by Delphine without telling her. On the drug dealing front, Alison and Donnie are having problems with Alison's mother, Connie, in the agreement to buy her store, which they need as a money laundering front. While Donnie and Jason meet with their supplier, Pouchy, for the first time together, Alison attends an all candidates meeting at the school. All of Alison's problems come to a head at the same time in a potentially very public setting.... Written by Huggo

User Reviews

After the intensity of the last episode, this is toe curling tension of a different nature
30 January 2019 | by DVD_ConnoisseurSee all my reviews

"Community of Dreadful Fear and Hate" is a much lighter episode than its predecessor, replacing "life or death" drama with more comedic but, nonetheless, toe-curling tension, revolving mainly around Alison and her attempts to win the school election whilst kickstarting her new drug empire.

There's a lot to enjoy here, especially the short-sighted Cosima having to double for Alison. The stakes are lower this time but it's still a nail biting scenario.

9 out of 10.
