Short Summary:

Episode 6 starts with a couple named Daniel and Rosie laying in a field. Daniel is dark skinned and Rosie is white. He apologies to her and asks her to leave Nethermoor before the baby comes. We wonder if it is because they are an interracial couple or something else. They see a glowing light in the sky and it crashes into the ground. Daniel is found the next day with Rosie missing. Rosie’s uncle Jim is quick to place Daniel for Rosie’s disappearance and frequently refers to him as darkie. In fact everyone in the town things Daniel is behind it except for the local policeman and our trio. As Houdini, Doyle, and Stratton investigate they find an underground society of miners, that have been driven from the town long ago. They have been living there for a century and have survived by stealing food and clothing. In the end it turns out that Rosie has stumbled and fell, hitting her head. The society of underground people knew she was pregnant and took care of her, also helping her deliver her baby. In the end everyone is happy. The background story-arc is also touched upon as well. We find out that Stratton though her husband was killed which is why she joined the police force. We also find out that Pennington has been found dead in the Thames River and Stratton thinks her life is in danger.

Ratings & Review

Review:

This was another very well done episode. It goes without saying that there really hasn’t been a “bad” episode yet. We are delving deep into the story-arc and only getting pieces of information at a time but that’s what makes it good right? This episode felt different but in a good way. Our trio being placed into the middle of nowhere has time to reflect on themselves and get to know one another better. We see parts of Houdini’s insecure side, and learn more about Stratton. Doyle played a role in this episode but I didn’t find him to be out in front. I feel this was more Stratton and Houdini’s episode. The setting was also great. The vast fields and hills gave each shot a very nice vibe. Again, this was a very well done episode.

During episode 5, Josh Brandon live tweeted that FOX wouldn't let Doyle light his pipe. They had fun with the scene and set it up for Korzha to interrupt him every time he had tried to light it. During this episode, Doyle tried to light his pipe but Houdini asks him not to. Josh tweeted that at this point it had become a running gag.
