Chucky, voiced by Brad Dourif, arrives at a Catholic school.
To be blunt with you this wasn’t a very good episode. Very little happens and most of it is just set up for things happening later in the season, that is not to say the things being set up aren’t interesting but they aren’t present in this episode so it doesn’t bring it up.
Moreover, the whole school setting is proving incredibly cliché everything that you would imagine when you think of strict religious boarding schools is shown here and nothing is subverted or done in any form of clever way, its tropes through and through.
I am glad to see Devon Sawa return to the show this time playing Father Bryce and he certainly does manage to bring with him a certain level of gravitas, it is just a shame that his character is clearly being written again as a cliched trope, really just being there to bully the kids and do little else.
I think the wider world stuff is far, far more interesting than what is going on in the school and the idea of Nica, played by Fiona Dourif, and Chucky working together to take out Tiffany, played by Jennifer Tilly, is interesting and one that I will be keen to see how it plays out. Plus the arrival of Glen and Glenda will hopefully spice this season up somewhat.
Overall, a weak set up episode.
Nica and Chucky working together
It is watchable
It sets up some interesting things for later on
Teases and set up make this episode feel like filler
Everything to do with the kids at school is dull
Father Bryce is a cliché
