Click On The Pick To Jump Over To The Leese Files

This took a VERY long time to compile so throw some love my way this Valentine’s Day and check it out..

And leave a comment over there ..


Okay… so one kid was out with his friends… the other kid was glued in front of the tv and the husband was putting in a new car stereo so I actually had 2 hours of peace..

So in between loads of laundry.. I got to watch Episode 9 and had the chance to really disect things.

Let’s get too it:

Two things from that were repeated in the recap made me think of something:

Burned Man: Abby coming home has set this whole thing off


JD: It’s all about you, Abby

The obvious is that the Abby / Wakefield / Sheriff triangle was the catalyst for the murders starting. But for some reason I was thinking that hmmm.. maybe there’s a different spin on that. Haven’t quite worked it all out in my head yet.. but I have a gut feeling that it’s NOT the obvious.

So the show opens and Shae, Trish, Danny are waiting at the Candlewick when Katherine walks in and informs everyone that the phone’s are still out.

Danny wants to know how many hours there are until sunrise and Katherine replies “.. too many”.

Um.. yea.. like the sun is going to change things right? Just HOW many people where murdered during the day? But then, that’s something WE know and they don’t.

Sully and Beth show up so the only people not accounted for are Jimmy, Henry, Abby, the Sheriff, Chloe and Cal.

The next scene explains that.

The Sheriff, Abby, Chloe and Cal are in the .. medical examiner’s? .. place.

When did they meet up? The Sheriff was left in Jimmy’s truck when JD was found. I’ll go out on a limb and say that Abby goes back to the Sheriff leaving Henry with JD. As for Jimmy, either he goes to the truck to and is imformed by Abby about JD  -OR- Jimmy finds Henry / Abby / JD and sends Abby back to her dad.. thus staying with Henry. Either way, I’m not really sure that it’s important.  Remember, I had a lot of time on my hands today!

As Cal starts working on the Sheriff, he says that it’s been a long time since he worked on a life patient.

Given that I didn’t even remember that he WAS a doctor, I may have missed what exactly he does for a living now.

He instructs Chloe to find O-negative blood :: how does he know that? Some test or something that we assume happened or what? :: meanwhile, the Sheriff tells Abby to “… keep Harkin’s [the Burned Man] book safe.”

It’s then that Henry and Jimmy make their first appearance, carrying JD’s body into the room next to.. or down the hall from.. the Sheriff’s. :: Don’t know.. but it was definitely the same building! :: Henry is visibly upset. Sincerely upset.

Jimmy happens to look down and sees some folded up papers :: obvious to us that they’re pages from Wakefield’s diary :: and gives them to Henry, saying that they were JD’s.

But did they REALLY fall out of JD’s pocket… or is it possible that he planted them?

Quite possible that I had too much time on my hands! But it’s a thought!

Maybe JD saying that all this was about Abby was suggesting that Jimmy was the one behind all this because he was pissed off that Abby left?

We cut to Shae freaking out at Sully for attempting to leave the island and putting Madison at risk. Trish asks about Henry and Sully tells them about JD.. Trish wonders out loud if JD being dead means that he didn’t kill her father.

What? WHAT? Sorry but I thought that was a really random thing to say!

All of sudden, lights and music blare into the room. Sully and Danny :: doing their best Tubbs and Crockett impersonation :: check out what turns out to be an empty truck.. turns out that it’s Shane’s who :: weilding his own shotgun :: is looking for JD.

They tell him that JD’s dead and honestly, I think his reaction is legit. I didn’t get the impression that he had something to do with it :: a thought from last week ::

Chloe finds the blood and brings it to Cal.  Jimmy pops in and asks how the Sheriff is doing and Abby tells him that the state police will be there in the morning and then they could get him to a hospital.

How do we know the state police are on their way? Are we to assume that someone from the wedding party that made the trip back to the mainland is going to inform them? And if so, don’t they have boats with lights? You have all these murders going on and yea.. we’re just going to wait until the sun comes up to travel over.

Abby goes over to see Henry :: who’s still with JD :: He’s tells her that he couldn’t save JD and it’s either the actor playing Henry’s best acting -OR- HENRY’s best acting. Either way, I felt bad for him. He also wonders aloud who’s doing all this.

Abby asks him if JD said anything… and Henry said “no”.

Odd? You’re dying and with your only surviving relative and YOU DON’T SAY ANYTHING? Nothing?  Of course, maybe JD did but Henry isn’t saying.

Henry asks Abby what he [JD] said to her…

Odd again? Or presumption? OR are we not suppose to think about that?

Abby tells him. Henry both stumped and feeling guilty of JD tells Abby that he needs to go to the Inn and check on Trish. Abby insists that he doesn’t go alone but he tells her to stay with the Sheriff and to lock the doors.

Back at the Candlewick, Danny and Sully comes in with Shane. Katherine asks about the Sheriff :: I’m wondering if SHE’S wondering if he has a big pension! :: and Shae asks about Madison. Shea wants to do “something”. She’s a mom so I can understand her going off about it. Henry tells her that they have to stay. Trish seconds it saying that it’s the only way they’ll be safe.

Um.. where’s Beth? Does anyone know where Beth it?

Back at the medical examiner’s place, Jimmy comes up behind Abby reading the diary. She says that even though it’s pretty burned up, she can still see the Sheriff being spoken about all over the diary. She confides in Jimmy about her mother’s relationship with Wakefield. Jimmy tells her about the pages he found with JD but had given them to Henry.


Sorry.. couldn’t resist.

Next thing we know.. Maggie :: hello Maggie! :: shows up saying that she’s locked all the doors and gave the keys to Trish saying that there is now only one way in and one way out.

Uh-huh. We know what THAT means!

.. and why give the keys to Trish? Why not keep them yourself? And why are you even still there? I would have suspected, like most of the workers there that they lived on the island.

Henry goes into the kitchen where Danny and Sully are with Shane.. who throws his digs at Henry about JD.

Shane also states the obvious.. that all the murders started to happen after the wedding party arrived. But the smartest thing Shane has said all season was that they were being locked IN with the killer.


Henry challanges Shane.. he can either be locked inside OR outside. When Shane doesn’t answer, Henry tell him to help “lock the place up”.

Um.. Didn’t One-Door-In-One-Door-Out Maggie already do that? And wasn’t Henry there when she said it?

The next thing we see is Trish cleaning Henry’s wounds. He doesn’t remember how he got them.. said he didn’t feel them… they don’t look like scratch marks.. more like knife marks. Did something happen with JD that he’s blocking out?

Abby and Jimmy come in. Henry asks for the Sheriff and is told that Cal said that he would be ok.

Abby asks to see the pages and Henry gives them to her. Coincidentally, she opens the journal to the EXACT spot where the pages were ripped out and begins to read.. gasping at the sentence that her mother had Wakefield’s baby and figures that she could be his daughter.

Now.. although that has been my theory all along, it dawned on me that I just assumed that Abby was her mother’s only child. Maybe she had too.. Maybe Henry is Abby’s half-brother? I know.. that part I just added for affect but going back to the openning of this post, maybe it’s all about Abby because the killer is her half-sibling who is jealous of the life she’s had.  No better or no worse then any other theory out there, right?

Only Trish, Henry and Jimmy were with Abby when she read it but Shane over hears it and goes back and tells Sully and Danny.

Jimmy confronts Shane. The cat’s out of the bag, Shane says… Abby is Wakefield’s daughter.  Abby looks like she’s going to cry.

Next thing we know, Sully, Danny and Oh! Look! BETH! are walking through the kitchen :: again with the kitchen? … and for what? What possible reason could they have for walking through the kitchen again? :: when they hear Henry yelling “You Son Of A Bitch!”

He’s confronting Shane who just says that he’s only stating the obvious.. the 7 years without a murder.. blah blah blah. Henry is getting defensive :: Hey! Isn’t that Jimmy’s job? :: Sully is kind of agreeing with Henry.. and Henry gives him a look like “.. you asshole!”

Shane goes on about everybody dying and how it all connects to Abby. Abby gets upset and walks out.

In a scene that I personally think was just filler .. Katherine goes looking for Shae :: when did she leave? :: .. as she’s walking down a hallway, she hears a noise that makes her pause but finds Shae in her room apparenlty with Madison’s clothes. :: weren’t they already packed to leave the island? :: Katherine wants Shae to join the group. Shae says she HAS TO DO SOMETHING :: that mother thing again :: but Katherine tells her everything is going to be ok. Shae goes bizerk telling Katherine that she ruined everything, Katherine says the whole Richard “thing” wasn’t meant to hurt her :: um, are you delusional woman? :: and that she loves Madison. Shae.. in probably one of the best lines she’s had says, “.. you don’t get to love her.”

Then she tells her what every self-respecting woman tells the woman who was being tied up by her husband.. GET OUT.

In the meantime, Jimmy finds Abby outside :: wait! isn’t there a killer out there? :: Abby has the diary and tells Jimmy about the phone calls.. about the article planted in her room. She says something.. can’t remember what.. about being wanted and Jimmy says that [the killer] can’t have her.

Is that an “aww” moment or is he showing signs of being a controlling homocidal maniac?

We now switch over to Cal and Chloe. Chloe is all godsmack about Cal saving the Sheriff’s life. Cal says something about how he now disects dead things and Chloe responds, “.. I know. Brains.”

Hmm. Interesting. What popped into my mind was a scene in Young Frankstein when Igor finds AB E NORMAL‘s brain!

He then mentions NEUROANATOMY. Odd.

Chloe is obviously horny. As they leave the Sheriff’s room, the camera pans down to an oxygen tank. I think I hear a hissing sound like it’s leaking. Is that why Chloe is in heat? Weird. Why focus on an oxygen tank unless it’s going to come into play sometime soon…

Meanwhile.. Jimmy and Abby attempt to get back into the Inn but Shane has locked the door. He won’t let them in but Henry shows up and bangs Shane’s head against the door and a fight ensues. Henry’s a lot stronger then he looks.. or maybe it’s the adrenaline.

And then Sully asks where Beth is.

Back in the kitchen :: where they were before Henry first confronted Shane :: Sully and Danny find Beth’s broken lantern and blood on the door.

In one of the night’s sillest moments, they knock.

Oh Beth! Beth! Are you in there? Come on.

They kick the door in. Henry, Trish and Abby :: obviously someone unlocked the door to let her and Jimmy in :: show up and they spot more blood. Henry moves a kitchen rack and finds a hidden door.

At first glance, it looks like just a room… but on the right side, you can see a shadow that gives the impressoin that it is actuall an “L” shaped tunnel.

Ine thing I was thinking was that if there was blood leading to a tunnel :: presumably that the killer is using :: then how did the rack get back over the opening? One theory is that the killer .. somehow .. was able to move the rack back. The other theory is that someone ELSE moved the rack back.

NOTE: There was a commercial break after the door was opened that showed only Henry, Abby, Trish, Sully and Danny. After the commercial break, Maggie appeared.

Maggie states that the Inn was built during Prohabition and that she had no idea there were tunnels.

To me, that sounded off. False. I mean, was it just shoddy writing? How could you NOT know about the history :: including tunnels :: if you’re the innkeeper?

Anyway.. Trish wants to investigate :: Beth’s MY FRIEND, DAMMIT! :: but Henry wouldn’t have none of it. He tells her to stay with Shae.

Sully wonders if it’s a trap but Henry rebuts that Beth might still be alive.

Henry gives Trish a shotgun who says, “.. my father taught me” when Henry asks if she knows how to use it.

Another weird bit of dialog.

And of course, Abby and Jimmy show up volunteering to help.

Trish walks by Shane in the bar and they have a little dialog when Catherine comes in looking for Shae. Both women head to Shae’s room and find a Tarot Card that Madison liftd a few episodes ago.

Shane pops in asking if they found her and was it me or was Shane freakin’ creepy?

Trish wants to find Shae but Katherine says they can’t go out there. Trish agrees but soon.. when Shane and Catherine are sitting at the bar, they hear the music of Shane’s truck and run to the window just in time to see Trish drive away.

In the tunnels, Sully is still spewing about Abby being Wakefield’s daughter when they come to a fork in the tunnel. Blood in both directions.

Abby suggests they split up.


As one character :: I don’t remember who :: said “.. no version of this ends well.”

Danny and Sully go one way… Abby, Jimmy and Henry go the other.

Back at the bar, Shane and Catherine are doing shots. Shane asks if Catherine was a bridesmade “… or sumptin’” and Catherine tell shim that she is Trish’s stepmother. He calls her  a trophy wife to which Katherine responds “was”

Hmm.. and y’all thought they married for love!

But when asked if she was left a “zillion” dollars, Katherine walks out. Insulted.

Oh. Come. On.

Shane, inexplicably :: but a clue? :: starts carving his name in the bar. Maggie catches him and when asked why he would do such a things responds that nobody is going to come to the inn anyway after all this.

Um, don’t get around much do you Shane?

Just a thought.. if Maggie was the killer, I would have thought that she would have planted a head spade in Shane’s head for marking up her bar!

Cut to Trish driving down the road and finding Shae. She’s spazzing but yknow.. whatever. Nothing major here. Trish takes her back to the truck and they head back to the Inn.

Back in the tunnel, Danny gets on Sully about believing anything bad about Abby. A few revelations, Danny referred to her as “Abner” :: clue? :: and said that he’s been trying to get in her pants for years and Sully has knows her longer then he knows Danny but Sully isn’t convinced.

Importance? I don’t know. Just seems like something to remember.

Meanwhile.. Jimmy, Abby and Henry are going their own way and there’s conversation about the Sheriff knowing Wakefield. But UH OH! They come to a crawl space.

Meanwhile Sully and Danny are at the end of their line and guess what’s there? A crawl space! This one with BLOOD!

Abby goes through hers… Danny goes through his.

Danny calls other that there’s another tunnel ahead.. finds Beth and has an appropriate slasher film freak out.

Abby continues to crawl forward :: is it me or did the smaller Abby have a hearder time getting through the crawl space then Danny?” :: and then SLAM.. a gate drops between her and Henry and Jimmy.

The boys tell her to stay put. They’re going to get tools to get her out. So what does she do with homicidal maniac on the loose and the blood of dead friends supposedly on her shoulders?

Our gal Abby moves ahead.. and sees another tunnel herself.

Her end of the tunnel opens into a room. She calls out to Henry :: um.. not Jimmy? Poor Jimmy :: but hears a spooky noise so she goes back into the tunnel.

As she’s crawling through, someone grabs her ankles and pulls her back. :: I’ve been watching and watching this scene trying to see something that might give a clue as to who was grabbing her.. man? woman? but I couldn’t see anything :: she kicks and kicks and was finally able to get away. She goes through the tunnel :: what happened to the gate? :: into a room.

NOTE: One thing I forgot to mention, there is no way in HELL Maggie would fit into these crawl spaces!

Inside the room :: it’s obviously a space that is used by someone because of the personal touches, like old fashioned lamps :: Abby finds a sleeping Madison.

Doesn’t ask her anything.. how did she get there? Who put here there? Nope. Nothing. She just gets the girl and high tails it out of there. Can’t say I blame her thought!

Meanwhile, Sully and Danny run into Henry and Jimmy and tell them about Beth… they tell the boys about Abby being caged in the crawl space and needing tools to get her out.

Meanwhile.. Abby and Madison are making there way through the tunnel :: just when did they hit water? :: when Madison spots a ladder to a manhole cover.

Henry and Jimmy, in the meantime, are back inside the Inn asking Shane for his tools. Shane tells them that they’re in the truck.. that Trish took to find Shae.

NOTE: As Trish and Shae are driving back to the Inn, Trish mentions that the sun is coming up. Uh huh.. there’s that eternal optimism again!

Madison and Abby climb up the ladder to the manhole cover but Madison isn’t strong enough to lift it.. so they start screaming for help.

DUH! Why the hell would you let a kid go up first? Well.. maybe to keep her safe but really if that was your goal then why the hell would you scream.. because.. um.. yknow.. it would ECHO in the tunnel.

But while they’re screaming and Madison is trying to get her hand through the grate, Trish and Shae are driving down the road.. and over.. the manhole cover. It isn’t until Shae see’s Madison’s hand in the rear view mirror that they turn around and rescue Madison and Abby.

All is well…


But one thing about that.. I know me.. and I know that if I’m driving down a dark road in the middle of the night spazzing out because I can’t find my daughter who was kidnapped by a homicidal maniac and I saw a hand rise up out of a manhole cover.. I would not have stopped and investigated. In fact, I probably would have started screaming and put pedal to metal! LOL

We switch back to Cal and Chloe who are all tangled in eachother on .. presumably.. the floor of the med examiner’s place. Chloe is asleep :: drugged? passed out? :: and Cal looks at her with I swear the weirdest.. strangest grin. To me, it wasn’t an “.. oh, she looks so lovely after she has multiple orgasms!” or “.. how the hell can I be so lucky that this woman loves me.”

No. .. I said it before and I’ll say it again.. there is something up with him. Could he have been the one in the tunnel pulling at Abby? If Chloe was out for the count that.. hmm.. maybe.

But what we do find out is that the Sheriff is gone.. pulled out his IV and left a bloody mess on the sheets. But more importantly.. THE OXYGEN TANK IS GONE.

Did he see Cal leave? Did he take the tank to use as a weapon? Could he even carry it around on a bum leg? Did CAL take the tank to blow something up with.. like the marina years before?  This is killing me.

Back at the Inn, the girls return. Did anyone notice Shane’s face? I’m telling you he has an evil look about him. Does he know more then what’s being told? Is he DOING more then what’s being shown? I dunno but it’s creepy.

Maggie says something to Madison but she won’t talk.. Abby mentions that she asked her.. probably in truck back.

Shane happens to stumble upon Catherine sitting in a love seat in some room. He says something to her but she doesn’t respond because.. um.. she’s dead.

He notices blood seeping out from either side of her. It goes from alittle seep to large puddles fairly quickly so either that was done for affect OR she was killed seconds before he found her by a pair of hedge clippers gauged firmly through the love seat and into her back.

One problem with this… and I’m still trying to mull it over.

The love seat is against a wall and while the seat slopes down leaving more and more room, it still isn’t enough room for someone to silently plunge hedge clippers into a unsuspecting.. seated.. Katherine.

I know. I have a pair and those suckers are long.

My husband :: who by this time had finished the car stereo and watched the end with me :: said that the only possible solution was that clippers were already in place when Katherine was pushed onto them.

The thing about THAT though is peaceful :: albeit blue tinged :: look on her face. Definately did not look like someone who was pushed onto something that impaled her.

Another thing that comes into mind. My SIL :: a kidney specialist :: had mentioned one time that people who don’t die quietly in their sleep have one of two mouth shapes. An “O” and a “Q” .. the “Q” symbolizing the tongue hanging out of her mouth.

Katherine has niether so questions remain. I hope to HELL it isn’t crappy writing. I really do because so far the show has hit high marks with me.. but if it goes down hill from here, I’ll be more then alittle pissed!

In the final scene, Madison does start to talk. She asks Abby if she liked “.. the game? He said you’d like it.” Abby asked her “… what man” and Madison replied in a snarky little “hahahah” voice, “.. the man who took me. You’re father. You know, the Sheriff?”

That just about wraps it up but I do have a some nugget of info for the mildly interested.

While typing up this post :: all 3900+ words so far :: Law & Order: Criminal Intent was on.. and guess who one of the characters was played by. Yep, you guessed it. Creepy Madison.

And she was just as creepy in L&O.. so maybe her creepinest isn’t an act.

Now THAT’S scary!!

Okay.. sorry this was late but like.. you know.. there were other things going on.

So on with it it


This episode should have been called :REVELATIONS:.

A lot of the back store was revealed which kinda gave some inside into past relationships and some much needed answers to questions.


The man with the scarred face? Yea, he was a deputy that worked under the Sheriff. There was wide speculation that it was Wakefield.. but too many people with the right sources have been saying that it was the deputy and there it stands.

He makes his speaking debut when he confronts Abby to tell her that her father has been lying to her.. that JD is not the killer.

NOTE: Earlier, the Sheriff and Henry find Uncle Marty’s cell phone in JD’s room.

Cause yea.. like.. finding a phone in some else’s possession is JUST AS GOOD as having a clear pictured video tape with excellent sound to prove somebody is a killer.

In the meantime… Malcom finally comes clean about Booth. Well.. let’s be fair. He didn’t come clean because of a heavy conscience. He got busted with the money by the Frat Boys (Scully and the black dude) looking for Scully’s blow up doll, Muffin.

Malcom tells them everything and needless to say, the boys don’t take to kindly to it. The black dude pummels Malcolm and tells that when he gets downstairs, they are going to the Sheriff.

NOTE: Now, don’t mind me but IF you knew someone KNEW something about the death of your friend but didn’t say anything because he had mega bucks from ANOTHER dead guy where he accidentally sank the boat with the dead body on it.. would YOU let him out of your sight????

Next thing you know, Malcolm is doing the honorable (!) thing and burning the money in the Inn’s incinerator. Where he is promptly taken hold of by behind and hacked? Stangled? Burned? Dosed?

Don’t know how exactly he was killed because they didn’t show it but yet another one bites the dust!

Meanwhile… Henry and Trish decide to cancel the wedding. I think Henry was thinking more “postponment” but Trish was like, “yea.. nope.. not doing it.. EVER“. She can’t get past everything even though Henry can’t help who is brother is :: JD is still the prime subject. They even called out the coon hounds on his skinny butt! ::

Abby goes to talk to her and they yknow.. bond over having murdered parents so Abby told her that the way SHE was able to make peace was to talk to her mother. This was actually some pretty inane stuff but to wrap it up, Abby accompanies Trish to the morgue where under a human burrito wrapped sheet is Mr. Wallingford. Don’t know what Trish said.. I think I may have gone to the bathroom.. but it’s over with.

Meanwhile.. Shay realizes that Richard has been gone all day. Madison wonders if it’s because of what she said to the Sheriff.

NOTE: I may not have mentioned this last week but after the Sheriff interviewed Madison who confirms that she was with her father, she questions her mother on whether Richard would be pleased that she told the police exactly what he told her to. I think Richard was fetish-ing with Catherine during the time in question.

Now.. here’s the meat of the episode.

Like I said, they should have titled this “Revelations”..

The epi flipped back and forth between the present and flashbacks. I’m not going to go frame by frame because I’m not that insane but here’s the scoop:

Back when Jimmy and Abby were dating.. there was a planned campSEXing trip. Abby’s mother busts her on going with Jimmy instead of her girlfriend and her mother says something about Jimmy being dangerous.. with his charm, good looks, etc. The implication was that the Sheriff was safe where as Abby was looking for passion. Her mother tells her the Sheriff IS passionate… about hating Jimmy.

Cute line.

Anyway.. Abby leaves and meets up with Jimmy. As they’re walking in the woods around the inlet, something blows up. They rush down to find one of the Sheriff’s deputies :: the burned man from earlier :: laying on the pier.. um.. burned.

The Sheriff tells Abby to go home and stay with her mother. She does but when she gets to the house.. it’s empty. She notices scratch marks on the door when the phone rings. It’s the Sheriff telling her to lock all the doors and windows. She tells him that her mother is no where to be found and then you hear a scream.

Abby goes outside to investigate and comes across Wakefiled dragging a body down the road where he uses the face spade :: or whatever they call it :: . Wakefield hears her gasp and as he turns to investigate, Jimmy happens to come around with his truck. What we don’t know until the very end of the episode is that Jimmy saw Abby hiding so he called attention to himself on purpose giving Abby the chance to escape. Wakefield comes after Jimmy but he peels away.

Abby takes off and comes across the infamous hanging tree where her mother is swinging in the breeze. The sheriff comes up behind her and the next scene you see where the Sheriff is sending her away to California. The get into an argument and the Sheriff barks “..DID YOU EVER THINK MAYBE SHE DESERVED WHAT SHE GOT”.

That must have been the “pretty nasty things’ he had referred to in a previous epeisode.

After the burned man had told Abby that she needed to talk to the Sheriff.. she confronts him.

He tells her that Wakefield and her mother had been invovled with each other when she was very young but that she came to the island to escape him.

When Wakefield showed up on the island THE FIRST TIME.. the Sheriff, being that man that he is, tells his deputies to hunt him down and make sure he never wants to visit the island again. Apparently, there was some type of altercation between Wakefield and the Deputy-Who-Would-Be-Burned involving a knife. The Sheriff pulled in every marker and had Wakefield charged with some trumped up stuff.

Can’t remember how much jail time he got but you know when he got out, he was one pissed off mo-fo.

Hence his return to the island AND his killing spree.

So that’s basically it.. OH! Except for the letter that Madison receives slipped under her room door. You don’t know what it says but it was obviously some type of instruction. She goes to a room where the door is half open and as she enters, the door slams behind her.

Roll Credits.

Not sure if CBS would want to show a kid being murdered.. but she may NOT have been murdered. We’ll have to wait until next week.

BUT.. Question of the Week is:

SO, Is Abby really Wakefield’s daughter??

Okay.. so not only did I have to wait two weeks for Episode 6 but.. BUT.. I also had to watch it over the internet with a glitching broadband connection.

But it was worth it!

If you don’t watch it already, START!

It’s not to late. You can catch up REALLY easily!! You won’t regret it!


So we definately know that Mr. Wellington got a face so full of metal that there is no possible way that he’s alive.

NOTE: The Blog-O-Sphere was running rampant with the notion that he didn’t really die. I guess probably because they hadn’t shown the dead body.

At any rate, I really liked the way the opening scene was filmed / edited… Wellington is dead.. everybody is in shock.. Madison  is screaming… Richard :: his son in law who is having an affair with his wife :: is throwing his jacket over Wellington’s face… Trish is going ballistic :: understandably :: and a blood-splash Henry is trying to hold her together.

The sheriff arrives and right away tries to take control, telling everyone to get out of the church but remain on the premises. Um.. dude.. they’re on an ISLAND!

Katherine :: the second wife having an affair with Richard the step son :: is in such shock that I don’t think the thought of how she was written in his will crossed her mind.


The sheriff tries to escort her out but yknow.. the guilts got the benefit of her and she collapsed into Sheriff’s arms. OR.. she may have just wanted to press her breasts on another man.

Once outside, everyone starts walking away from the church when Abby’s cell phone rings and UNKNOWN CALLER shows jup.  She answers it but only the music of AVE MARIA is playing. She hastily closes the phone.

Meanwhile.. Madison spots JD :: Henry’s spooky-scary brother :: hiding in the woods.

NOTE: That scene actually gave me the chicken flesh!

JD puts a finder over his mouth like, “SHHH!!” for the blood soaked Madison not to give him away.

The Sheriff and the coroner look over the body and there WAS something I wanted to comment on but I forgot what it was. I don’t think it was anything pertinent to the story.. more so something randomly funny. But with this show.. randomly funny COULD turn into something pertinent so if I remember, I’ll edit this post.

The Sheriff then goes over to the hotel to interview Trish and her family. Richard gives this big kum-by-ah speech but Trish spills the beans to Richard’s wife :: Shay, Trish’s sister :: that her husband is banging Katherine.

The Sheriff overhears it and when he interviews Richard, Richard confesses that he hated Wellington and that him screwing around with Katherine was just to shove it to him.

Well, he was actually shoving it to Katherine but I won’t split hairs here.

Meanwhile… JD breaks into Abby’s room. He tells her that his “big” secret :: the one that he threatened Henry with last week :: was that he put a Roman candle in the Unity Candle at the church :: Ahh! That’s why there was a spent firecracker in the church! :: but that he found something in the forest that he wanted to show her. She resists but he insists.. talking about how Wakefield is alive.

NOTE: A few espisode ago :: before I started the recaps :: one of the island locals tried to hang JD believing that he was responsible for the hanging of his old girlfriend Kelly that swore she would see John Wakefield. When Abby stumbled across the scene, she made up a story about Wakefield still being alive in order to save JD.

Abby told him that she made that up but he was adiment. When they get into the forrest, JD pulls a knife and it looks like he’s going to spaz but instead, they look up and see a hanging body way up in the tree. JD cuts it down and it turns out to be his Uncle Marty :: who was killed in the first episode ::

When Abby runs into Henry, she tells him what they found but when JD pops out from the bushs, saying that it was Wakfield, Henry goes ape shit on him.

The sherrif slaps cuffs on JD and locks him into the kitchen .. meanwhile, Henry and Abby confront the sherrif with data from his attic. Is Wakefield alive? Why does he have an attic full of information indicating that he isn’t.. complete with a fingerprint from after Wakefield was supposedly killed with a note on it saying that it’s a 98% match to the murder? Abby tells him that they are going to dig up the grave and the Sheriff says he isn’t going to stop them.

So they do… and they find a body. Of course , you can’t tell WHO the skeleton belongs TO but it satisfies them. Not the brightest crayons in the box, yknow?

The Sheriff apologies to Abby for sending her away. Saying the he didn’t want him to see him a broken man and that the things he said about her mother :: one of Wakefield’s victims :: was just out of anger.

What could he have said? That she was a whore? Hmm.. inquiring minds want to know!

Meanwhile.. Madison lets JD out of the locked kitchen and he takes off.

Meanwhile.. Richard is talking to his lawyer on the cell phone while walking around the hotel grounds and gets impaled by a HUGE sea spear that swings out of nowhere and goes right throw him. He looks up to see his daughter, Madison, in the window of her room playing cards. He tries to get her attention and you see her looking out the window but he is pulled backwards and disappears.

Madison continues to look out the window but we see it from her perspective and she was actually looking at her reflection and NOT at her father being impaled.

JD.. now running from the Sheriff.. runs through the woods and winds up at the house of the burned man.


On a lighter note.. but maybe not..

Chloe and Cal :: her English boyfriend :: make an appearance. Being stuck on a sail boat without wind is the excuse for them not being in the previous episode. They go into the Cannery bar to make a phone call and witness a couple celebrating their engagement with a ring the dude found on the beach.

NOTE: The ring belonged to Cal. He had bought it to propose to Chloe but they got into an argument :: I think :: and she through his clothes in the ocean. The ring that was in his pocket fell out and he thought it was lost for good.

He asks the dude for it back but that wasn’t going to happen so he tells Chloe what happened and she goes up to the dude and slaps him in the face pretending to be his jilted lover. The girl wearing the ring gets mega pissed and throws the ring across the room where Cal dives for it.

Fast forward and Cal and Chloe are laying in bed. He tells her that he IS going to propose to her but not on that day.. the day where her best friend’s father got sliced and diced.

He turns away from her and I SWEAR TO GOD he had this look on his face that made me think that this dude is just not a bit player.. that he has something more going on..

Like.. oh.. I don’t know.. maybe HE’S the killer?

Okay… yknow.. I hate that nobody I know in my “real” life watches this show… There’s nobody to call up and say, “… omg! omg! omg!” or to try and figure out what’s going to happen next.

Here’s the premise:

Serial murderer on the island kills like, 8 people :: one of the most bizarre scenes is a shot where the bodies are all hanging from a tree :: .. one of whom happens to be the wife of the sheriff. The sheriff killed the murderer but his daughter winds up leaving the island because of bad memories. The daughter, Abby, is the central character.

Fast forward and now Abby’s best friend from childhood, Henry, is marrying the daughter of the richest family that used to summer on the island. They decide to ferry all the guests over to the island to spend a week or so of fun and frollicking and then marry on the island by the island priest.

So just in case there is someone out there is cyberworld who NEEDS to know what happened, here it is…

Up until this point, the groom’s uncle, the bride’s cousin, the bride’s ex boyfriend, the priest, one of the bride’s maids, the goth-y girl and one of the groom’s best friends have been killed.

Only one, the groom’s best friend, died accidentally by shooting himself in the leg.

We also know, that the flower girl has “spirit” friends, the bride’s stepmother is having a bondage / role playing affair with the bride’s brother in law..the groom’s brother has all sorts of mental problems… the bride’s father thinks the groom is beneath them because he used to work at the marina where they kept their yacht and as of last night, even the Police Chief :: father of the central character Abby :: has his own secret.

I’ve been wondering … with everybody that had died.. how come no one found the bodies yet, yknow? I mean, they ARE on an island for pete’s sake! …

But anyway…

So last night, the bride (Trish) goes on a bike ride with her father in the forrest. Trish is kind of torn up because of finding her step mother doing the kinky nasty with her brother in law.

All of a sudden, her bike triggers a booby-trap and a huge log comes swingng thru the forrest … slams into her tire.. and sends her and her father toppling down a steep incline.

Meanwhile… JD, the groom’s mental brother, sets off fireworks with the bride’s niece Madison :: the kid who hears ‘spirits’ :: scaring the bejezzus out of everyone standing on the balcony.

Meanwhile… Abby has spent the night with her ex boyfriend :: and still island resident :: Jimmy.. but NOT IN THAT KIND OF WAY..

NOTE: Not for anything but how she could have NOT is way beyond me and MY hormones!

There’s a knock at Jimmy’s door and when Abby answers it, it’s her father. It’s a toss up on who is more suprised then the other. Turns out that the Sheriff and Jimmy are buds that hang out now and they were suppose to meet up for lunch. Abby decides.. relunctantly.. to tag along.

Back to the forrest… Trish and her dad come to and even though she’s kind of banged up, they were able to start hiking out of the woods. She’s getting irritated that her father has this “gut” feeling about Henry and doesn’t trust him.. Trish scoffs at his “gut feelings” and clues him in about his wife and his son-in-law.

Here’s a towel to wipe that egg off your face, Poppa!

All of a sudden, they see a guy roaming the woods and call out to him for help… in stead, he turns loose his German Sheppard attack dog. Both go scrambling and wind up in some type of metal shelter or something conventiently situated in the middle of the forrest. Probably some kind of hunting blind but I dont’ know about these things.

Meanwhile.. the groom’s friends are together wondering what became of Booth.. the friend that accidentally shot himself in the leg and bled out..

NOTE: Unfortunately, I don’t know the names of all the friends yet so we’ll just refer to them as Beer Dude, Surfer Dude and Black Dude.

Booth had accidentally shot himself because Beer Dude had followed him into the woods to find out where Booth was going to buy the 250,000.00 they had found :: that’s another story :: and he not knowing it was Beer Dude, shakily pointed a gun at a bush but when Beer Dude popped out, Booth lowered the gun, accidentally pulling the trigger and blowing out an artery in his thigh.

So the friends go out to search for him and Beer Dude goes to where he buried Booth and made this really sweet speech. They all meet up after not being able to find Booth and decide that he must have left the island because he was freaked out about the whole money situation.

Meanwhile.. Jimmy and Abby are having lunch with the Sherrif :: her dad :: and he tells her that there are some things at the house that she can have if she wants them. She starts kind of making excuses that she’s busy and stuff and you get the feeling that there is WAY more going on between these two then just the death of her mother and her father shooting the killer. Because wouldn’t you think that would bring a father and daughter closer?

Anyway… Abby leaves and Jimmy tells him that she has alot of issues..and some of them involve the him :: meaning the father ::.. Hmmm.. what could all that be about?

So let’s see.. back in the forrest, Trish and her dad are still hiding out but don’t hear the dog anymore so the father slowly climbs out … thinking to take a broken beer bottle with him ::see! This is why he’s a millionaire!:: Sure enough.. the dog in camped out ON TOP of the thing they were hiding in and when he lunged at the father, he was able to .. well.. let’s just say he did away with the threat… him and Trish make their way out of the forest finally.

Meanwhile.. there’s an issue at the church. Apparently, somebody realized that they couldn’t get in touch with the priest so Henry takes a stroll over to the church only to find the alter abuzz with flies and maggots from a decay raccoon left on the alter. Upon a closer look, Henry finds a used firecracker.

The sheriff is called and while him and Henry are cleaning things up … Abby returns to her childhood home. She tries calling her father but since he is elbow deep in raccoon gunk, he doesn’t answer. She finds the oh-so-secretly-hidden key under the flower pot and goes inside.

Okay.. so it’s been something like 7 years since she’s been to the house but it looks like she’s looking for something. I mean, when she looks in the box that her father left for her.. it ins’t like she was looking at what was in there.. rather, she was looking for what she THOUGHT SHOULD be int there and wasn’t.

She goes into her child hood bedroom and then she heads into the attic.

What she found there is still making me scratch my head..

Apparently, her father the Sheriff, had converted the attic to everything relating to the island murders AND the murder. There was even stuff that suggested that maybe the killer isn’t REALLY dead .. and doesn’t the guy in the picture look like the guy that was in the woods with the German Sheppard only with half his face burned off? Hmmm?

Abby is still in the attic when her father returns to the house and so you know that by the time he lets himself in, she’s already downstairs.

But anyway.. with all THAT drama going on.. there’s STILL a wedding rehersal that has to be completed!

During the rehersal, the sheriff gets another call from a deputy saying he found a hearing aid in the woods around the church.. that the priest wore a hearing aide, right?

The sherrif heads over and in the very last moments of the episone.. while the bridal party is lining up and moving down the aisle.. the sheriff and deputy are pulling in a catfish line… as soon as he get’s to the end.. and sees the priest’s head held onto the line by a fish hook through the eye.. he calls Abby at the church.. she doesn’t answer of course because that would be just down right rude …

Almost simultaneously, with the whole wedding party under the medievel chandelaire, the wedding planner tells the father that it is time for him to light the unity candle and tells Abby to turn off the lights.

Before the lights go out.. everyone is looking up.. not sure why but on the bottom of the chandelair there is very sharp blade and when the lights go out.. the chandelair starts to fall and everyone scatters … that is except.. who??

All you hear is Madison screaming.. not sure if she was screaming for her grandfather.

Can’t wait not for next week because I watched this episode on demand and when you do that, you don’t get previews of the following week…

Darn It!
