OK, so this is the one about the spirit in the lake but who cares what the actual plot was, AMY ACKER AMY ACKER AMY ACKER!!! And being all cute and flirty! le sigh
— Annoying brother, taciturn dad, cute sister: Murika!
— Dad tells cute sister to be careful; clearly, she is about to die.
— Aaaaaaaaaand, she's all drownded.
— Yeah, I've been to lots of small town america diners, and in none of them would that outfit pass dress code muster. I know that sexy diner waitress is a big ol' trope, but keep her in unform, k? See? It can be done:
— Guest Starring Amy Acker: AAAAAHHHHH!!!!!!! FRED!!!!
— OMG IT'S FRED!!!! I LOVE YOU FRED!!
— Aw, Fred has a kid with issues. Are we going autism or trauma, here? Survey says: Trauma! Who thinks the kid's trauma has something to do with the baddie we're hunting? Everyone? OK, then.
— Aw, Dean likes Fred. We all like Fred, Dean. You're not special. But, oooh, Fred with the burn!
— Guys, those pictures were not drawn by a 10-year-old. This kind of thing bugs me. It's not that hard to get an actual kid to draw you up some pictures for your tv show. It's right up there with animated babies who sound NOTHING like babies.
— So, clearly Trauma Boy was left alive for a reason? Baddie loves kids? Baddie has special connection with Trauma Boy? Baddie is now possessing Trauma Boy?
— Ew. Yucky water. Run, Annoying Brother, or face the same fate as your sister! This is a targeted attack! He'll get pulled down and drowned in 3, 2, 1... I hate being right.
— Spirit targeting Taciturn Dad, yadda, yadda, yadda, down he goes, police cheif is all forceful and stuff, come on, dudes, you know we're not done here, don't act like you're leaving.
— Wow. That is some REALLY BAD green screen in this driving scene.
— Really boys? You're going to decide the kid's having premonitions? It's not premonitions. It's knowledge of the past.
— NO, FRED!! DON'T GET IN THE BATH!!! At least turn off the water first, that thing is full to the brim. Where is your overflow valve?
— See? More yuck water. Toldya you should have turned off the water. YOU HAD PLENTY OF WATER!!!
— Everyone is saved, blah, blah, exposition, yeah, it's always an accident when you kill your childhood friend.
— OK, now I'm confused. Why didn't the spirit take Trauma Kid back when it took his dad if it was just going to come after him later? Why possess him kinda and reveal all this knowledge about the past to him? Oh, yeah, sorry, forgot: McGuffin. Carry on.
— And then I became very jealous.
I would give at least one toe to be on either side on that kiss.
— No, but, wait, hang on. You said Fred's husband died in May. And we're all running around Wisconsin in short sleeves and it's warm enough for swimming, so we're looking at September at the latest, right? So that's four months? Fast mover, Fred.
