Castle Rock Keeps Bringing It
chixie-6402714 November 2019
The emotionally gut wrenching suspenseful interplay between Annie, Joy, and Rita (Sarah Gadon) make this episode a riveting follow-up to the masterful "The Laughing Place". Last week's episode was an origin story within an origin story, but as this episode ended, I was left contemplating more main character theories than when I first started watching this season. A show that makes one think is a good thing.

Of the series I regularly watch, this show is the best in my opinion. The writing, directing, cinematography and most of all the performances make for compelling viewing. Lizzy Caplan and Elsie Fisher are bringing their characters to life and giving Emmy worthy performances at the same time.

Getting late in the season

Episode 6 was good but with only four episodes left I feel like the season still hasn't kicked into gear. The first season was so riveting and this season has great actors but too slowly paced. The vampire/pod people whatever they are just are not menacing enough.

The Mother

Warning: Spoilers
This didn't top last week's epic episode, but this was a good one as well. Seeing Rita's struggle was tough to watch, but I hated her dying in the end. It also felt like the show was going too political with an accidental gunshot. That wasn't really needed, they could have had Joy/Evangeline shoot her or something.
