This week on Haven
it's Halloween, and the group goes to investigate when a girl claims her boyfriend slammed the door on her with his mind. It happened in a house where a family previously disappeared and things are not quite what they seem. With no phone service and no way out, they must figure out the trouble and get out of there before it's too late.
I really enjoyed this episode of Haven
. I was disappointed when I found out there wouldn't be a Christmas episode, but this one helps to make up for it. Being the episode is for Halloween, it of course is one of the more freaky and suspenseful episodes, and it's actually got some scares like it should.
That being said, even though the episode is centered around the holiday, it is not stand-alone, but rather contains some continuity from the ongoing storylines, especially Audrey's, as she continues to learn more about her past lives and the Colorado Kid. You can still understand the episode, however, if you missed last week's (I originally received the screener before last week's episode aired and was fine). The other continuity that is in the episode is about Jordan, and Nathan's investigation.
The episode does have some great bits specifically for the holidays, such as a party with Vince, Dave, and others in costume. As I mentioned there are also some creepy, bloody scares, and the episode does take place in a haunted house, of sorts.
Other than the Halloween elements, there is also a good bit of action in this one, along with other great moments, such as with Vince, Dave, and Dwight, and of course some great one-liners courtesy of Duke. Also, if you are into it, there is quite a bit of tension between Audrey and Nathan in the episode, though also some moments between him and Jordan as well.
