Review: I’m on the fence about this one.

On the one hand, we have another excellent performance by Louise Fletcher. Her continued complex character that mostly is condescending and opportunistic but also occasionally humble and then oh wait she’s just a coward is still a treat. On the other, things get super hokey with the good versus evil, blue vs red, soft eyes versus devil eyes fight at the end with balls of energy and not much else. Though, it’s appropriate that one of Lofton’s rare season six appearances is used for him to act possessed and lifeless.
