Bitten: Trespass Review
So Many Secrets
Reviewed: by Tyler Olson
***The review below contains minor spoilers.***
The death of a little boy is bound to infuriate almost anyone, so it wasn't any surprise that it was the trigger that put the stray doggie down.
I want to know what the hell that lone wolf was thinking? Sure, killing a couple of women would surely attract some attention, but never, ever, go after a little kid. He even did worse by going to a party the night after. He must have known that the royal pack would have sniffed him out by then, so what was he up to. It is incredibly rare for a television character to confuse me as much as this mutt did. I am sure there is some grand plot in the works, but how about giving us viewers a bone to bury so we can dig it up later to chew on.
Although, the writers of Bitten aren't the only ones keeping too many secrets. Elena's lies are already starting to catch up with her, but that isn't stopping her from unleashing another flurry of them. And Logan isn't much better. The lies those two spun at the supper table surely is going to come back and haunt them. Something tells me their "normal" lives are going to come crashing down like a glass statue. Of course it could get even worse if one or both of their human pets would suddenly get bitten... That would definitely turn someone's life inside-out!
Of course, their actions are actually minor compared to Clayton, who seems to be one notch on the leash away from being a serial killer himself. Someone needs to sit that dog down and tell him that killing a man isn't how you win over a woman's heart, especially when she is begging you to spare his life. He could have, at the very least, made his death a bit less terrifying for the victim, like, I don't know, knocking him out first. I would really love to know what Elena saw in him.
After three episodes of Bitten, we still don't know a whole lot about what is really going on... which is a really odd place for a series to be at this point. Sure, we are getting familiar with the starring wolves, as well as the human lovers, but the story is still at the same point as the first episode – someone is trying to discredit the pack. I'm enjoying the real-life feel for the story, but I think it's time to get the story progressing.
