I’m Not Going Down Without A Fight: Alex, McKenna, Violet

The longer the game goes unfinished, the worse it is getting for Violet. She wakes up with blood on her pillow and something having crawled out her ear. To say whatever it is was disgusting would be an understatement. So, she pushes Alex harder and the stress Violet is putting her under, combined with not eating, drinking, nothing, out of fear of choking, leads Alex to faint.

Which of course makes people think she is back on drugs when she isn’t. Though, with her wanting to at least get Violet off her back, Alex decides to confess that it was her who gave Jennie the pills that killed her. However, she makes a note of it that Jennie pestered her hard for them before she gave in.

Commentary

Alex talking to Violet.

Perhaps the biggest contribution this episode has to the story of Light as a Feather is beginning to craft who Jennie was. With her treated as almost a ghostly figure, it seemed only natural to assume she was just like McKenna. However, as noted in the next topic, she was definitely more aggressive.

Something Violet may have to be since it seems that thing in her back is laying eggs or breeding, and now they are starting to spread. Now, how they get from Violet’s lower back to coming out her ear, or coming out some orifice in her head? Who knows. But it isn’t like we have gotten to understand what exactly is going on with Violet.

Old Feelings Die Hard: Trey, McKenna

With learning it was Alex, not Trey, that gave Jennie the pills which killed her, there is some semblance of peace between them – even an attempted apology. However, then comes Trey pulling out a note between him and Jennie. One which reveals Trey had a crush on McKenna. Something which gets her in her feelings to the point of making out with Trey. Yes, even with her having a boyfriend, the guy of her dreams.

Oh, and did I mention Violet has it all on camera?

Commentary

McKenna and Trey kissing.

I feel like I should look at McKenna differently for making out with someone who isn’t her boyfriend, but it’s all just worth a hunch at this point. So she cheated on her boyfriend with the guy next door who has had a crush on her forever? Trey was never made to be the boy who missed his chance and McKenna remains dull despite her actions. If anything, the way Jennie sounded in that note, again, you get driven to be more interested in the ghost than the living.

Making me hope we might get a flashback to Jennie’s final moments or days. Even with knowing that has little to nothing to add to the danger going on.

It’s Too Late: Henry, Trey, Candace, Alex, McKenna, Violet

So, the idea was, while Violet is hosting the ceremony for Olivia’s tree, Alex and McKenna would watch her as the boys, Trey and Henry, break into Violet’s house. One which, as usual, is empty and makes you wonder if grandma is still working and when will she get to retire? Assuming she wants to.

Missing grandmother aside, Trey and Henry find all sorts of things. Receipts showing Violet is paying for Candace’s stay at Daybridge and Henry finds out McKenna is being spied on. Specifically, she was last being spied on when Trey and her were making out. However, the big thing is that receipt which leads McKenna to, with Alex, who she isn’t fond of, flying to see how Candace is.

Which, at first, she seems fine. However, then they are escorted out by security and Candace goes to the Blue Ocean room. Then, something clicks in the heads of McKenna and Alex and despite just being kicked out, they rush back in only to find Candace dead.

Commentary

Candace, after drowning.

Is it rude to say Candace’s death was anti-climactic? Not just because we knew she was going to die but how she ended up in the state Violet predicted. I mean, this show really has an issue with building up to a moment. I’m talking in terms of writing, acting, score, you just can’t easily slip into the moment and get some kind of fear.

And can we just ask, where the hell is grandma? If you go into the wrong room, will you find her dead somewhere? When Trey and Henry show up, it is noted the car is gone but what does grandma do? Also, what does grandma know? I still got questions about various things but, I gotta admit, at this point, I’m starting to not care about any of them. I’m just hoping this series can present a last minute save.

Criticism

  1. Candace’s death just felt inevitable and barely worth feeling anything over.

On The Fence

  1. We do obtain some information about Jennie this episode which helps us craft what kind of personality she had. Making her seem way more interesting than anyone alive, at this point.
