Proof 1×04 ‘Redemption’: There’s no highway to Hell

Screenshot (2883)

But there are the people you’ve killed in life, and a murder victim that you had nothing to do with, but she wants you to find her killer, so you can be redeemed. Even though I would never wish it on my worst enemy, Hell did seem a little more hopeful than some would expect. Well, in Mr. Mason’s case it was. It’s also a great thing that Mr. Mason seemingly got that redemption, but this episode didn’t seem to hit all of the right notes in his respect.

That’s mostly because the arresting of the killer, and Mason’s death were both left to the imagination. Which makes sense. I wouldn’t want this show to suddenly turn into an episode of the numerous crime dramas out there, but it lessened the effect of what was going on with this side character, and that rings a different tune than what we’re used to from last week to the week before where the side characters got almost as much screen time as the main ones.

Boy, did we get a lot of the main ones this week. I’m not complaining about it exactly. From the pilot episode we could tell there were some issues between Cat and Sophie, and it was nice to take a good look at it this time, especially since we know that Cat was driving the car in her son’s accident. Maybe if those scenes were a little more balanced with the Mr. Mason scenes and that investigation, it would have made the hell thing more important instead of falling a little flat.

I did definitely enjoy seeing more Van Owen this week though, and he proved to finally be an asset in Cat’s cause. Each little scene in the first two episodes definitely was not enough to make his character clear, but that wasn’t a problem this time. Also, I enjoyed him getting all angry, and listening to his accent, so I want more of him like right now. Just loads and loads of scenes with him in it. Right now. Or like next week, whatever.

I do have to say the beginning scared the ever-loving crap out of me when Mr. Mason came back from hell, and I’m kind of hoping he didn’t end up back there, but again we’ll never be able to get the full answers from this show.

What I do want answers on is that lady wearing the green scarf at the end. Now that was a little scarier than even the beginning scene since they left it where Zed was waiting in an elevator with a woman who has a bit of an obsession with Cat. And he was so innocent too! Oh, here’s hoping nothing bad happens to Zed. I like him a lot.

All in all, I liked what the show was touching on this week, but I don’t think it was as fully fleshed out as it should have been. Oh, and I need Van Owen to be in every episode, and for Zed to okay. That’s all I want, thank you.
