Season Five of the show continues to explore new ground, this time having Sam leap into the same people’s lives over the span of 20 years, in a three-part episode. Sam leaps into Sheriff Clayton Fuller, in the town of Pottersville, Louisiana. His 10-year-old daughter, Abigail, is caught up in the death and potential murder of one of town’s people. Sam must find out the truth in this Southern Gothic tale.
We discuss the episode – how it stand on its own, and how it sets up the next two parts. We also ponder why the show hadn’t explored doing multi-part episodes before this point in the series.
