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 was on the edge of my seat all hour wondering how she would trigger the trouble. Seeing the preview for next week, I think DUKE is the Colorado Kid's father, since he's the one stuck in 1955. It would explain their connection as friends and why Audrey trusts him so much. it would also explain why no one knows who the father is. Unless Nathan goes back in time too to rescue Duke and he's the one sleeping with Sarah. Maybe she had a feeling he was the father, that's why she said she ALWAYS loved him. So much questions to answer and I like that we get tidbits of information every week. Like the reviewer said it's great that we get another season of Haven. That news made my day.

I agree this wasn't quite as good as part one, but it did move the story along quite well. I don't believe Tommy is dead. After all, whenever the police fail to recover a body on TV that almost always means the bad guy got away. I loved that Audrey declared herself; now she just needs to tell a conscious Nathan. Duke is such a good guy to accept what happened, although deep inside he probably always knew. I doubt the Teagues will 'fess up everything to Audrey. Otherwise why wouldn't Vance have told her what was so significant on the island? The barn? I think Nathan might be the Colorado Kid's father. Did anyone else think Tommy got offended when Duke called the Colorado Kid a drifter? Gosh, poor Moira and Noelle. I did foresee that Noelle had saved Moira and thus not their father. If Moira hadn't been so blind, she might have seen that too. I think Noelle should have told her, however. However, that is seriously wonderful Trouble to have.
