Sorrows

Synopsis: In The Burning Sorrows. Nancy, Bess, Agent Park and Temperance have to join forces when an attempt to trap a killer ends up unintentionally unleashing a deadly supernatural entity that feeds on people’s sorrows. Meanwhile, Ace and Ryan discover a haunting at the Historical Society.

 

The Story

Nancy, Bess, Agent Park, and Temperance team up in the hopes of trapping a supernatural killer known as copperhead. But in their attempt to trap him they wind up unleashing a deadly supernatural entity that feeds on people’s sorrows. Only in this instance, it has a hunger for Temperance’s sorrows.

Elsewhere, Nick has gone missing and Ace and Ryan volunteer to help George find him, but soon find themselves trapped in the Historical Society by a mysterious ghost. Not wanting to call upon Nancy for help. Ace decides that they should figure things out themselves. Ryan figures out that the knocking that the ghost is doing on the walls of the building has a purpose. This leads Ace and Ryan to start correlating the knocks with times and dates, which they enter into the computer to go through CCTV footage.

Meanwhile, George meets an old friend of Nick’s who helps her track him down.

 

The Acting

Bo Martynowska puts in a solid performance this week as Temperance and through the episode, we get to learn a whole lot more about her backstory. Although, it may just be a variation of her backstory given that she is proving to be a fun and complex character. We also get a good performance from John Harlan Kim as Agent Park. The scene he has with Nancy (Kennedy McMann) where he tells her the reason he became an FBI profiler is brilliantly done.

 

Overall

A solid episode. I really enjoyed the concept of a spirit that feeds on people’s sorrows. I also liked how the entity allowed for us to get Temperance’s backstory and learn about how events transpired to take her daughter away from her. However, by the end of the episode, we pretty much learn that Temperance has a much bigger plan, which I am hoping doesn’t play out too quickly as I am really enjoying her character.
