Outcast Season 1 Episode 3 Review: All Alone Now

That was disappointing.

Not a lot happened on Outcast Season 1 Episode 3 as no questions were answered and more mysteries were thrown our way.

Prison talk - Outcast Season 1 Episode 3

I don't know about you guys, but I was pretty frustrated with this hour. It really went nowhere.

We got treated to another demonic possession, but this one was a bit different. It was certainly nastier than what was inside Joshua. At least Joshua didn't brutally kill like Blake did. 

Blake was also immune to the Reverend's attempts at exorcism, which was new. I couldn't help but laugh when Blake started convulsing to convince Anderson his possession was real, only to turn around and scoff at the guy. 

This was a pretty mean demon.

Is this actually your job? Do you do kid parties too?


He did seem to be affected by Kyle at least a little bit, though. At least, I think I heard the sizzle when Kyle placed his hands on his head. But, that was about it. The demon didn't go running like it did with Joshua.

It sort of made me think Reverend Anderson was right, that this guy was just crazy.

But then he mentioned "outcast" and that made it real. Joshua said the same thing to Kyle, so there does seem to be some sort of connection between the two demons.

But, why is Kyle and outcast? Is he an outcast from hell or just simply an outcast from society like Blake implied? 

It was a little confusing. 

I also wonder how Kyle thinks he's going to get his family back when he seems to think the only way to get a demon out of someone is by beating him or her bloody.

His need to punch and fight seems sort of uncontrollable, even if it did save Reverend Anderson from being killed.

Kyle gets frustrated way too easily,and I wonder if Reverend Anderson is going to work on trying to hone Kyle's skill before he ends up killing someone.

If Kyle really has a skill. Luke seems to think he has a power, but I'm not really sure after this failed outing.

Reverend Anderson is looking more and more bedraggled. He really looks like he's been through hell and back, and I'd really like to see what his story is. 

We got a little tease when the picture of his son flew out of the car, and he stopped to hunt it down, even coming back later that night trying to find it in the rain. There's more to that picture than just a sentimental value.

Kyle brought it up during their exorcism attempt about Reverend Anderson giving up his family to pursue this duty. Did his wife leave him? How long has he been chasing demons? Is is son even alive? 

Call me old fashioned, but I think our vices should leave a rotten taste in our mouths. Helps keep us honest. It's what God invented the hangover for.

Things must be pretty boring in Rome for Mark to be so obsessed with the trailer in the woods. Chief Giles wasn't too thrilled about the idea when Mark brought it up, and I don't think Giles thought Mark would find anything.

The fingernail was a bit strange. Didn't it seem like the same one Norville found in his garbage disposal? 

After Mark brought everything back to the station, Giles was even more agitated, though he hid through some very thick sarcasm. I'm really loving Giles.

Mark was understandably frustrated, but if I was him, I'd want to know what Giles' issue is with investigating that trailer. What is Giles hiding? What is he trying to avoid?

The best part of the hour was the tension-filled moments between Megan investigating Donnie's hotel room and Mark investigating the trailer.

I thought it was very well done the way it went back and forth between the two scenes.

The rabid dog about to attack Mark and Donnie walking into the hotel room (with me thinking Megan was still there on the bed crying) had me on the edge of my seat. It was awesome.

Adding in The Black Hat Man made it even darker. Who is that guy, anyway? And why is he in town?

And, who is Donnie and why didn't Megan tell Mark about it? Who knows? But, I wish the writers would answer some other questions before throwing new mysteries at us.

So, what do you think of "All Alone Now?" Chime in below and share your thoughts. Remember, you can watch Outcast online anytime, right here via TV Fanatic!
