STALKER tackles deep-seeded fears!
Stalker -- S01E04 -- "Phobia"
Like the previous three episodes, this one starts off with the typical cold opening (which I love, by the way). It focuses on a lady who just gets home from a bad blind date, she takes a shower, gets out...and the lights go out. Darkness, her biggest fear. An unknown assailant steps out of the shadows equipped with a pair of night-vision goggles -- reminded me of Buffalo Bill from THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS -- and gets his kicks by watching the lady freak out, running into things and crying.
Of course, this episode contained the same method of operation as the others: the team collaborates to catch the psycho. Case closed. It was a decent episode, nevertheless.
We didn't really dive into the subplot with Jack, but we did get a deeper glimpse into Beth's subplot. A character we met in the first two episodes returns, and he has a thing for Beth. A stalker-ish thing, which looks like it could be climaxing soon.
All in all, I enjoyed this episode, but I can't wait to see what they have in store for next week's Halloween episode!
Next episode: S01E05 -- "The Haunting"
