Chucky, voiced by Brad Dourif, is finally exposed as Jake, played by Zachary Arthur, and his friends finally decide to put a stop to the evil doll.
It is a shame that the series didn’t go down the Chucky’s apprentice route it would have made things more interesting, instead we get the fairly standard all of the characters teaming up to stop the killer, with Jake staying firmly on the light side. However that is not to say this was a bad episode, in fact I actually quite enjoyed seeing Jake and Lexi, played by Alyvia Alyn Lind, team up, I thought it was an interesting way to take their characters and having them both be honest with each other was a masterstroke. I thought the scene in which Jake is saying how he wished her dead because she is a bad person and she is actively scared of him was powerful.
I also enjoyed the continued backstory of Chucky. I like how each episode is giving us more and more of his early years thereby expanding out the Child’s Play world and building on the character.
One thing that I didn’t like was Detective Evan’s, played by Rachelle Casseus, interrogation of Jake. She has no evidence, he is a minor and she tries to force him into confessing, yet we are still supposed to like and root for her character, as she is doing it with good intentions? No, I find her and her moral outrage to be quite infuriating, with her character often just getting in the way of the story.
Overall, a good episode if one that felt a little safe.
