One thought on “Ep. 24 – BTAS – See No Evil”
I’ve always loved this episode and it’s a shame that it isn’t talked about more.
Now that I’m older, I wonder why Helen has a restraining order against Lloyd if he’s just a petty thief. Of course, she wouldn’t want anything to do with him anymore since he’s a criminal and would be a bad influence on Kimberly. Maybe he was abusive and sometimes got rough with Helen when he lost his temper, and she didn’t want to take the chance of Lloyd hurting their child.
The villain’s motive is understandable in how he seems to genuinely care about his daughter and just wants to have a relationship with her. However, whether or not the invisibility suit has corrupted him, his desire for Kimberly has gone to an obsessive level and he’s gone slightly unhinged, meaning he will do anything to see his kid or have her all to himself while also putting her in danger even though he probably doesn’t mean to. Plus the whole invisibility factor just makes the whole thing more creepy. It would’ve been bad enough if it was child abduction being planned and committed by a stranger but one by a friend or family member is just as bad if not worse.
All in all, this is a standout episode.
