Stalking STALKER: S01E19 - "Love Hurts"
Well, we're down to our final two episode of the CBS drama STALKER, and truth be told, I'm bummed about it. But, that's showbiz, I suppose. Nevertheless, this column must go forth!
Stalker -- S01E19 -- "Love Hurts"
"Love Hurts" started with a bang. The cold opening was very SCREAM-ish. Which, again, this being a Kevin Williamson-created TV show, does not surprise and is hugely welcomed. A woman comes home to an empty house, goes through what I'm assuming is her usual nightly routine -- glass of wine, a little music, shower, etc.
The woman hears a strange noise in her house. You know, the kind of thing that happens in every horror movie ever. This is no different. Once the attacker finally appears, I was instantly reminded of a darker version of the CRY_WOLF killer (see photo above). Which I loved, by the way.
Long story short, the woman is murdered. And wouldn't you know it, this is just a case for the TAU!
Now, with Beth's subplot officially closed, we're really only left with Jack's, which we get none of this episode. But that's okay. Spoiler alert: Jack and Beth kiss!
However, did this turn out to be an story with a twist ending. After a series of red herrings, and the stalker is revealed, it's then later revealed that this episode's perp is just that, a stalker and nothing more. He hasn't killed anyone. This can only mean that a serial killer is on the loose!
What's disappointing about this revelation, though, is that there is only one episode left. Period. STALKER was canceled so this is a major bummer!
Until next week...
