Meet Your Monster.
8 July 2018 | by SendiTolverSee all my reviews

'The Monster' is action packed thrilling episode that starts to draw the ring close. The episode is faster in pace, much more is going on, as for now we have very clear picture about all the important characters and their motives, what drives them. Some very important questions get the answers while some new mysteries open up. 'The Monster' uses may classic story development devices that some might find cliche, but these are crucially important to move the story forward. Also the first real experience of melodramatic human relationship triangle forms out between Nancy, Steve and Jonathan. Again, the seeming cliches that were used to move the story forward had nice and quite unexpected outcomes. Not the strongest episode, but it had one very unnerving cliffhanger that leaves every viewer expect more.
