Caleb's Dream
31 October 2014 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

Caleb has a weird nightmare with a corridor and several cells. Meanwhile a man robs a Korean watch in an electronic store, but the seller press the alarm. While Sheriff Buck and Deputy Ben are heading to attend the call, Buck tries to improve Ben's self-esteem that is low, affected by family problems. When they arrive at the store, Ben realizes that the thief is his deranged brother Artie that is shot by the seller. Artie forces Sheriff Buck to take him to the hospital to remove the bullet. He takes Dr. Matt Crower, Gail and Caleb hostage and discloses that he has a bomb in his stomach that is ready to blow up in a few minutes.

"The Beast Within" is a pointless episode of "American Gothic", with a weird story. The conclusion in Caleb's dream is maybe the best part of this show. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "The Beast Within"
