"His Visit: Day Two Continued" Season 1, Episode 3

Instead of dispelling the theory that John might be Jesus or some other heavenly entity, the events in the latest episode seemed to substantiate that possibility. Much to Dr. Smith's amazement, Shaun was healthy enough to go home with his family, sans Mitch, who took off with Cass after his argument with Cissy. Meanwhile, John recounted Shaun's recovery to Kai and Linc in his usual cryptic sentences, even though he was with them the whole time and had no way of knowing what happened. John politely informed Kai several times that he was still planning on boning her. When he announced the same to everybody at the Yost house, and added that he might have to "break her jaw first" for some reason, Butchie told him to make her see God. Kai took him to the surf shop and called his bluff on the boning by inviting him to feel her up, but "t--s don't ring a bell" with John, so she took him back to her trailer instead. Once there, it started to look like she might bone him after all, even though she admitted to having misgivings about taking advantage of a slow, hot guy. Surely this is a dilemma most women encounter at least once in their lifetimes, I have to imagine. Anyway, this is when John told Kai to see God, her eyes crept into her head, and the visions began. Add that to the levitation and the reanimation of the dead and I think John has enough miracles under his belt to qualify for sainthood at the very least. When Kai came to, she said it felt like her piercings were in a furnace while she was under John's trance. John replied, "See God, Kai," in a tone that seemed to remind her of the immensity of such an experience. It looked like all of the people she saw in her visions had a similar reaction. At least he didn't break anyone's jaw though, right? The visions: - Butchie scoring drugs - Vietnam Joe clutching his knee as he fell to the ground outside of the Yost house - Ramon waving his hands at his chest as if it were hot, while Barry gathered a package of what I can only imagine was spilled soup off the ground - Butchie attempting to shoot up, only to end up clutching his head in severe pain Butchie later told the doctor his implants got hot. What implants might he be talking about here? Hair implants? Metal plates from a surfing accident? It was mentioned so casually I felt like I should've known already. Dr. Smith responded by saying the burning sensations might have been caused by intravenous drug use, but quickly added that he wouldn't dismiss a more paranormal reason, and cited Shaun's recovery. Butchie then filled him in about his dad levitating and John's magical pockets. I should also mention how Cissy flipped out on Butchie for having the audacity to presume he has the right to give his son permission to skate again so soon after nearly dying. Talk about powerful acting by Rebecca De Mornay! And I thought she had a point when she accused Mitch of thinking of no one but himself. What kind of jerk won't go see his grandson after a day like that? There's a lot happening in this show despite the fact that it's only the third episode, but there hasn't been much development as to what John's purpose is. Just what I need, another mysterious show like Lost! Ah well, I'm already hooked. Besides, next week's episode looks great. Did I really hear Cissy tell Linc that she needs him? Could that be out of context or what? Also, Mitch levitates in a hotel room he's sharing with Cass. Again, out of context or are those two going to be doing some God-seeing of their own? Also, John is going to have an altercation with a gang of young ruffians he hitches a ride with. One of them pulls a knife on him, clearly threatened by his autistic nature. I wonder what special power John will rely on this time. The writers do a good job of cutting the tension with lots of humor. Here are some moments that cracked me up this week: - Freddy's anxious rant in the car about cutting the newsman into "50 f---in' pieces" - How Freddy unnecessarily broke Palaka's wrist so he could get inside the hospital to find out how Shaun was doing. At least he had good intentions, right? - When Barry asked Meyer and Ramon if the cardboard cutouts were animate or inanimate - Bill and Freddy's argument outside the Yost home as Palaka savored every second - When Bill and Freddy teamed up against Barry, Meyer and Ramon by not allowing them to bring the Yosts soup. "I don't care if you're bringing a Sikorski helicopter!" Find video for John from Cincinnati in our Online Video Guide. show less
