Haven Review: Death Becomes Her

by at . Comments

"Magic Hour (Part Two)" didn't quite have the same finesse that part one enjoyed, but we needed to find out what happened last week, didn't we?

Audrey seemed to grow up a little since her trip to Colorado and I don't think she'll be taking things for granted any more. What else went down?

Audrey Fights for Nathan

We figured out why Moira was so angry at her sister. Because at age 34, Noelle looked like a teenager and Moira looked like her mother. I was shocked to find out the reason Moira hated her sister was because the last time the Troubles came around Noelle was eight and didn't save their dad. I never would have guessed her to be 34.

Okay, I'm being silly, but Moira's attitude was so utterly annoying that I almost clapped when Audrey finally pulled her gun and threatened to kill her so her Trouble might kick in. It was absolutely brilliant! Too bad it didn't work.

Can you imagine living all those years, treating your sister with disrespect and using her Trouble for your own gain only to find out that she had saved your life? Noelle loved her sister so much she would rather have her hatred than lose her, and rather let her think she let her dad die than have Moira be in her debt for saving him. Talk about love.

It was like a kaleidoscopic of lifesaving going on in that house. Moira got her power, she saved both her sister and Nathan as Audrey made a tearful confession Nathan. As beautiful as it was to hear from her lips, it was painful to see the reactions from Duke and Jordan as they witnessed Audrey pour her heart out to the man she had always loved.

I love how well Haven remembers when Jordan needs her gloves and when she doesn't. When she touched Duke earlier in the episode, he was writhing in pain, but when she touched Audrey it was okay because of her immunity to the Troubles. Little things like that make the continuity work so well.

I was on to something last week when I said Tommy wasn't himself. He was Troubled. When he got into a fight with Duke, he got cut and his blood disappeared into Duke. I knew that whole story about staying in town was bogus. The Teagues figured out the bolt-gun killer would be going after Audrey to get more information on The Colorado Kid, but since he was killed in the end, there were few answers gained from Tommy's presence in Haven.

Tommy showed up, ruffled feathers, needlessly killed women to build a missing person from body parts and then killed Nathan, but little else. Nobody found that half built head that I recall. Someone is in for a shock when they find that.

The Teagues did finally relent and decide it was time to stop keeping secrets from Audrey, so we'll see how that plays into things going forward, as well. They have a lifetime of information share, and two incarnations of Audrey to spill in three weeks. 

Oh, I forgot the all important love and devotion speech from Audrey to Nathan. If Tommy hadn't killed him, she wouldn't have been able to say those words out loud. I wonder when she'll be able to say them to Nathan when he's still breathing. Audrey's a pretty amazing woman. Giving up her time to speak with him so that he could talk with Jordan was selfless. I hope putting off that talk doesn't come back to haunt her.

Speaking of haunting, what was that house Vince saw on the hill out in the water beyond the Grey Gull? Is that where the father of The Colorado Kid lives or lived? Could it be a mere coincidence that he saw it at the same time he told Audrey that she never named the father? Or is that where Tommy ended up since they didn't find the body. Is the Frankenhead in there? So many questions!

In the comments, we've been talking about the possibility of a time warp making Nathan the father of Sarah's child. Maybe the house on the hill was bleeding through from another time. Audrey has decided to use the time before The Hunter arrives to search for her son. It will be interesting to see how many people get in on the hunt and what resources she can tap into for information as to where he might be. I'll point again at those Teagues brothers. 

What did you think of the conclusion of The Magic Hour?  Haven  has been renewed for a fourth season, so we can rest easy knowing that whatever mind blowing finale they have coming, we will have more to explore next year. Will it be a new incarnation of the Sarah/Lucy/Audrey line? The possibilities are endless!

i seriously doubt tommy is dead, and how can you not know what the shack is, the bigger of the brothers explains it 20 seconds before the screen fades to black, and all the other stuff we have learned about it. also i think the younger brother is TCK's dad, also remember the wedding ring they gave audrey with the green stones they are the same stones in lucys necklace

A couple of theories. 1. I don't think Tommy is dead. I think he knew they would never stop looking for him,so he rigged the boat to explode and jumped off (they haven't found a body). It doesn't make sense they would set up the premise of the BGK only to drop it like this. 2. I think either Vince or Dale might be the father of the Col Kid (unless Nathan did time warp and is connected in this way - The Col Kid does kinda look like him). I would still like to see Duke and Audrey go deeper into their relationship. I think Audrey is one of the MAIN reasons Duke is holding on to his good side anyway. 3. The house on the hill was the Barn everyone keeps talking about but I still don't know what's in there.

i think Tommy and Claire are working together and were maybe working with grady or utilized one of their troubles to control him to kill that womanat the atm. the woman asking audrey those questions at the hotel used that sort of shrink talk wanting her to unburden herself to get info. must say though the guy who did abduct audrey sounded and looked like dwight so that's also curious, and colorado kid sounded like nathan at first(but those may jsut be red herrings)
the colorado kid may be max hansen after all julia carr 'confirmed' his death but she was apparently part of the guard and who knows what really happened to him. i think we'll definitely hear or see more of him and both the colorado kid and max hansen have a thing for denim

In the beginning of season 3 the kidnapper was obviously white with longer hair and Audrey was on the phone and the medical examiner said the other girl that was kidnapped was already dead for 4 hours but Audrey was still talking with "her" so tommy shifted to get information. I believe Tommy's trouble is he's a shifter. He can take the form of other people. But if that was Tommy he said "your not the only one that loved the colorado kid" so is he the father or something like that. ?

This rant was due to I was reading the rest of the comments on the other page and was so angry at the absurdities. The rant finishes here, dont worry your pretty strip-ped head. Like in S1 with spiral resurfacing the hand your dealt etc etc S2, Sins of the fathers, Business as usual (we find out Duke is in fact troubled, hang on what will that mean for Jean, does that mean she has 2 troubles or is it just father to son?)Who what where wendigo etc. So it will be the same for S3, just wait and see, stop trying to guess, all things come with time, rewatch and have fun. Relax, breathe.

OMFrellingG! Nathans the CK father NO DUKE NO NATE NO DUKE! Gosh people, its just TOO OBVIOUS! The writer are better than that, when has anything EVER been straight forward in Haven? I mean even that tattoo at the start of the serie4s, its now something really big in the show, we wouldnt have thought that would happen. Or that Duke would have a WIFE Ex or otherwise! They always make it clever so lets not insult their ingenuity or intelligence by trying to guess, Nathan cannot be the father a) hes with Jordon b) he loves Audrey c) 1 year and 15 days is TOO LONG FOR ANY ONE TO GESTATE A BABY!!!! Only Erice and Magnus in Sanctuary and Aeryn Sun in Farscape and the rest of the Sebacean species can. It is just NOT possible for people, even if they dont age. Im pretty darn sure it took 10 months like the rest of the human races mothers (40 weeks = 10 months btw) SO we can just wait until Burned and find out. Then we have the last 3 eps which are the crucial ones where we find out answers. Like in S1 with spiral resurfacing the hand your dealt etc etc S2, Sins of the fathers, Business as usual (we find out Duke is in fact troubled, hang on what will that mean for Jean, does that mean she has 2 troubles or is it just father to son?)Who what where wendigo etc. So it will be the same for S3, just wait and see, stop trying to guess, all things come with time, rewatch and have fun.

according to a website (part of wikipedia) the condom, used as the biggest used and safest birthcontrol was invested in the 1920s, so 35 years till when the episode was set, plenty of time, so even if they did do it Sarah wouldnt have gotten preggers. From what I can tell from the episode names (the long goodbye and reunion and the memories one) that means that shell disappear and then come back and something might hapen like one of them might die, probs duke they cant kill off nathan or audrey cause theyre supposed t get together, duh. I know this is a REALLY long comment and its taken me like 1/2 and hour to type it properly. But I just hope everytng will turn out ok and Naudrey happens. Otherwise I WILL CRY BECAUSE I CANNOT WAIT UNTIL 2013 FOR THEM TO GET TOGETHER!GO NAUDREY!!!!!! NAUDREY FOR EVER!

gonna get togeher and they will get together (I hope) at the end of the season. Maybe next season will be them together and sorting out the troubles. I know its god for Jordon that shes with Nathan but not that good for Nathan, Im sure hed like to feel the girl hes kissing and whatnot. Also, in tv shows like this where they have the chemistry between the male and female lead (nathan and audrey) they get together, like in Castle, Bones, Eureka, Fringe etc etc. Al these tv shows have the m & f leads getting together, Bones and Booth have a KID together!!!! I just hope it happens this season, cause if not I shant be happy, I like the charatcers to get together by the end of the 3rd season or to see hope, but in sci fi where there are limited options for episodes, like you have the staple, timetravel, bodyswap, regress to childhood (Star Trek Next gens regressing one was EPIC) one character (or minor) gets old (Farscape and Fringe good with these ones too, GO CLAUDIA BLACK!!) BTW according to a website (part of wikipedia) the condom, used as the biggest used and safest birthcontrol was invested in the 1920s, so 35 years till when the episode was set, plenty of time, so even if they did do it Sarah wouldnt have gotten preggers

Okay, with the Colorado kid being Nathan's dad, WE ALREADY KNOW WHO IS NATHANS DAD, MAX HANSON! Silly billys. Also, I daresay Duke does NOT love Audrey, he might be ATTRACTED to her, you can be attrated to people and not love them, also I am pretty sure (this will bite me in the butt if it turnsout he is) Nathan i not the father of the CK, and he wouldnt do anything like father a child by not using protection, and im pretty sure they had contaceptions in the 1950s. I think he was just making out with Sarah cause he couldnt with Audrey. If I loed someone but couldnt be someone Id rather a copy or a past self of them that you could be with (like Rose and the Doctors half human copy in Dr Who although the doctor shouldnt get together with his companions.) So he was taking that oppotunity. I also think he and Jordon wont last many more episodes, its usually the last 3 or 4 eps that are th best Naudry moments in them. Cause thats when the fans are saying yes and whats gonna happen are they gonna get togeher and they will get together (I hope) at the end of the season. Maybe next season will be them together and sorting out the troubles. I know its god for Jordon that shes with Nathan but not that good for Nathan, Im sure hed like to feel the girl hes kissing and whatnot.
