Not much time tonight, folks, so this is gonna be a quick one. Mainly, just a formality, in the sense of "what's the minimum amount of time I can spend writing a Haven review that still feels like a Haven review of SOME sort?"
So be it.
The Trouble of the Week this time was a decent idea: there's this dude, see, and if he accidentally spills any of his own blood, that blood takes on a life of its own and begins seeking out the man's worst enemy, which it will then kill. In this case, that's Nathan, who the man hates because he prevented the Troubles from ending.
Problem is, several other people get killed over the course of the episode, too, and despite having watched the entire thing, I do not recall there being an explanation as to why that happens. Is my memory at fault, or is the screenplay at fault? This must remain a mystery for the time being.
This is, according to Wikipedia, at least the fourteenth episode of a television series to be named "Bad Blood." Others include True Blood (makes sense), Grey's Anatomy, Prison Break, Degrassi High (!), and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
But I will only ever think of the episode of The X-Files from its fifth season that bears that title. Written by Vince Gilligan and co-starring Luke Wilson, this tale of trailer-park-dwelling vampires is arguably one of the best -- and funniest -- episodes of that entire series.
