Haven Reviews: TV Fanatic

WARNING:  This reviews may contain spoilers.

Episode 12 Reunion:
I'm really not quite sure what I hoped for from "Reunion," but I know it didn't deliver at the level I expect from Haven. For the first time, I was a bit underwhelmed at the reveal leading up to the season finale. That doesn't mean I don't think they can pull off something spectacular, but I wanted more.
It's also interesting that after all the debate that went into pulling this episode in the wake of the school shootings in Newtown, it was probably one of the least gun violent episodes we've seen. Shooting was only one of the many ways in which Arla chose to go after her victims, and Robbie only went down in Arla's attempt to save Audrey.

Episode 13 Thanks for the Memories:
It's season finale time, and "Thanks for the Memories" delivered an interesting take on how to keep Audrey attached to Haven, while going into the barn. We learned a lot of fun new bits-n-bobs in the episode, so let's break it down.
As I said in my review of "Reunion," Audrey's apartment has to be the most insecure place in Haven. Nathan and Duke arranged for someone to watch over her during the night, but given as it was her last night in Haven, why in the Hell didn't they stay with her themselves so they could have skipped the dramatic discovery of broken deck chairs and a dead guard at her door? 
If it was going to be my last night on earth, I would have wanted to spend it with the man I love. Even though it didn't hit me while watching the former episode, it really hit me after she was gone. She may never have a night with Nathan. That's just unacceptable.
