The Whispers 1×10 ‘Darkest Fears’: Oh, so now you want to be painful!

What the actual hell? When did this show decide to stop being a creepy, fun, summer romp, and just started to make everything so upsetting?! Why you do that? It wasn’t even the best episode because there are still some glaring freaking plot holes in this show, but that ending! Oh my God, I’m still in shock.

Although I’m not going to lie, Lena wasn’t the sharpest crayon in the pack, so I’m not entirely too shocked….She is though.

Too soon?

This episode was great at the whole misdirection thing because I was totally sure that Drill was going to use Nicholas as his main target, especially since they spent time showing how and why he went over to Drill’s side, but that’s definitely not the case now.

Since Wes decided to trash talk Drill, and he’s known for his incredible spite, it seems like Minx will be the more likely candidate when Drill gets his message out, if that’s his entire plan. I’m still fuzzy on that.

What I’m also fuzzy on is the fact that Sean didn’t think his son needed to go to the hospital after getting in a car accident, or questioning where that burly stranger came from, which he should really be careful, especially since we know how well that turned out with Lena.

Also, choosing to put your probably concussed son to bed, and then get busy with your wife makes me worry about your decision making skills.

And don’t even get me started about the masterplan to kill Drill because that gives me a bigger headache than Henry has. I mean he could have just traveled to Virginia or something. If he could stay alive for a period of time in a building without electricity, he could probably make it over a state line. But again, I can’t wrap my head around this show sometime. Oh, and if this was the real life government that kid would probably have been sacrificed. Not gonna lie.

Well, if I do stop trying to shove logic and common sense into this episode, it was really good. I love how Sean and Claire’s relationship has grown, and I’m happy that Dr. B still pops up now and then, and I hope she comes on more to give some sage advice.

I am glad that there is another creeper man running around being creepy, but I wonder who he works for, and why he was following Wes’ family, and it really is irking me that we have no clue who that helpful stranger was who got Henry out of the car, and honestly I just want answers dangit! Enough beating around the bush, Drill!

And good on you Wes for walking around with those ridiculous goggles on, and not trying to give your wife CPR. You are now the smartest character on this show.
All in all, while the plot in this show is getting a little infuriating with the whole common sense/high drama thing, I did enjoy last night’s intense and upsetting episode, and I can only imagine how heartbreaking next week will be.

    Wow, what an ending. It was really powerfully done, from the cinematography and camera work, to the acting (the physical reaction that Wes has upon discovering Lena’s body was perfect), and of course the haunting song “Fly Low Carrion Crow” by Two Gallants. When you put it all together it reminded me of so many Sons of Anarchy episodes which always had really powerful final scenes.

      I completely agree. That had to be my favorite ending of an episode so far because of how beautifully heartbreaking it was.
