Did You Know?


"If I could save time in a bottle", plays during the beginning portion of this episode. The song also plays in X-Men: Apocalypse, while Evan Peters' character, Quicksilver, is saving the mutants from the explosion at the Mutant School. See more »


It is highly unlikely that anyone would have died as a result of consuming the venom-laced apples. Venom must enter the blood stream intravenously (injection); the only way venom can cause harm if ingested is if the person has an upper GI bleed or is taking medication to weaken stomach acid. Even then, death is unlikely. See more »

Wow a huge improvement
27 September 2018 | by WhenAmyMetSaladSee all my reviews

This episode is THE episode that will bring back a huge chunk of the fan base from previous seasons. There is a lot of character development from Mallory, Langdon, Dinah, Ms. Mead, Venable, and Brock. Coco is sadly still stale as a character and still very much annoying BUT something tells me she might pull a 180 soon.

Langdon easily feels as threatening as Frances Conroy's Angel of Death character in Asylum and not like a Twilight vampire like I previously reviewed. We also get some action going on this episode with a faux flashback sequence by one of the characters which gave me Kill Bill vibes. Copperhead vs Black Mamba anyone?

Be warned though everything is changing this episode. Something wicked this way comes.

After giving the first episode an abysmal review and a 3 rating followed by a 6 for the second episode it feels like this season will continue getting better.
