This week (official episode description):
I thought this episode was pretty campy. I suppose they've been going for that, to some extent, in every episode. But this week was like an Indiana Jones adventure!
Yeah, I didn't like this one as much. I hope they get back to the more horror side of things.
I enjoyed it. It was like Indiana Jones, National Treasure and A Night at the Museum decided to have a three-way baby. And then some rando Stephen King book got involved, just because.
And this popped out.
Fun episode. Jurnee Smollett is killing it. Ruby, her half-sister, is doing pretty good too.
I liked it a lot too. It was a fun Indiana Jones-ish episode.
"Jesse Owens ain't got sh*t on me!"
Time travel was mentioned. I guess I can expect a Back To The Future or Groundhog Day episode soon.
...showrunner Misha Green cited Richard Donner's The Goonies as the primary inspiration for the gang's adventure through an underground cavern populated with death traps, a lost ship, and treasure in the form of a being from another world.

They certainly underplayed that the basement under the museum in Boston is magically connected to the basement under Leti's house in Chicago...
I was thinking, "Wait, what? Did that actually happen?" It wasn't until the others were driving back to Chicago alone that I was sure.
The first clue (or at least the first I noticed) was when the dead body floated by and Leti said it looked like one of her neighbors who had gone missing.
Yeah, pretty much the only clue unless you recognized her elevator...which I didn't until it was too late enough for me to feel slightly dumb about it. It was only when the aunt talked about them already being back in Chicago that it finally dawned on me what had happened.
I recognized the elevator, and immediately assumed it was the same one. Then somehow as the scenes unfolded, I convinced myself that this couldn't possibly be the same one, and that there just must be a bunch of identical looking elevators in this world. Then they rode up in it, and I was unsure if it was truly the same one, or if I blinked and missed them heading home, and then was confused when the car was driving back without them, then was extra confused about what was seen on the map, causing the driver to turn around and drive in the other direction, not being sure if it was towards or away from home, or the museum. Sometimes I blink, or get distracted for a moment, and am not sure if I missed something critical. For example, if I had blinked during the last 3 seconds...
Regardless, this has turned into one of those shows where I feel the need to go skim a recap after watching to make sure I've at least gotten all the facts that were presented.
This exactly. It was fun, and much prefer this to classic horror. First thing I did while watching with my daughter was start to hum the Raiders of the Lost Ark theme.
I'm enjoying this, though very confused at times
I found it odd that Letita said to Atticus last week that she was a virgin "it was my first time", but this week told Tree ("Of course I know, remember that time in High School?") — With the "spells" having them see things (i.e. when in the house they Letita was with and Atticus that was not really Atticus), was that really Letita who said it was her first time?
I think Tree told Atticus that he and Letitia had been together in high school, and Tic told Letitia what Tree had said, and Letitia is now telling Tree that she know he lied about it.
Anyway, that's how I understood the exchange.
What I recall is Tree said to Letitia “You know why they call me Tree, most men have two legs, I have three”. To which Letitia said “I know, we f*(#$ in high school, remember”
I liked the episode. Hope there is a new one tonight.
There is. E5 "Strange Case".
Normally I spoiler episode titles, but in this case, Strange Case could apply to every episode we've seen so far. And probably every one we'll ever see.
Her exact quote was "Shouldn't I already know that since we ------ in high school, Seymore?"
I agree with madscientist that she was letting Tree know that she knows what he's been saying about her.
My initial point was that since Letita told Tic she was a virgin (“it was my first time”), maybe that wasn’t the “real” Letitia.
@getbak That seems like a spoiler for the next episode. (It's a mild spoiler, but still a spoiler.) Would you mind putting it spoiler tags? Thanks!
I'll go ahead an start a thread for that episode, given it just started airing.
