In Which I Review Dead of Summer (1x8)
--So no one ever taught the counselors and kids of Camp Stillwater to not stare into an eclipse?
--The eclipse apparently made Deb remember a bunch of stuff from her time at Camp Stillwater in the 1970s. Anyone wanna place some money on Deb being a member of the masked group but better at hiding it?
--"What they know for sure is..." "...that Stillwater sucks at vetting cops?" Drew needs more to do.
--Seriously, where was Blair this entire episode? And why did Cricket choose to appear to Jessie of all people?
--Sympathy for Jessie doesn't erase the fact that she was a stuck up bitch for the first 7 episodes or so.
--Malphas is an actual figure in demonology. The writers did research (or at least looked at Wikipedia!)
--So is Joel really dead? The show was pretty explicit when Cricket died. Also, should we talk about how out of the three counselors to have died thus far, two were people of color?
--"But I don't want to be saved" Sorry, Amy. But that's not how this narrative works.
