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!

Okay..

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.

Yet.

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.

Hmmm..

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!
