The River: Blind in the Amazon

I was very happy to see Lincoln cut his hair, it looked so stupid.  To be honest, I couldn't sleep after last week's episode, I was so freaked out by the dolls and the general eeriness of the episode.  I think this week's was better for me and my sleeping habits.

They confirmed another layer to the story that Tess is guilty for having an affair with Clark. If you have been reading this blog long enough, you know my love of a forbidden love story and my loathing of cheating.  So the jury is out on this one until they reveal more or confirm they were separated before the affair.

While looking for a cave that Emmett may have gone into and gotten himself lost, the search party is attacked by an Amazon tribe that blinds its prey.  Everyone in the party except AJ slowly goes blind and becomes the hunted.  This show is systematically revealing all the things I would rather die than live through, like sleeping near a doll tree and having centipedes crawl all over me including my face.  I'd chose death. (You'll find out more about my survival tendencies in the Walking Dead blogs.)

The River also has no lack of drama, but you kind of knew it was going to be wrapped up by the end of the show.  Regardless, I am still going to continue to watch because it is intriguing, just like Lost and the X Files.
