Reaper: Total Eclipse of the Heart
Actually, giving the soul some time to sow his wild oats and de-virginize himself was sweet. This wasn’t some quick roll in the hay. The soul went to hell for coveting another man’s wife. He never consummated this desire; he merely just fantasized about it. Since the soul’s untimely, accidental death, the woman of his affections divorced. So now the escaped soul can fulfill his wish without remorse...that is, if he can stay out of hell long enough. Thanks to Sam’s good heart and Sock’s desperation to get each and every male laid, the boys send the soul’s decaying corpse to hell in the vessel to hopefully throw the Devil off the scent and let the soul live happily-ever-after with his love.
Little did they know the Devil has a fail-safe plan to hunt and destroy souls who try to subvert the system. The Devil sends The Ender to obliterate the soul, which just tears Sam apart. He just can’t beat the Devil. Every time he tries to do something good, it just turns to ash. Also, little did they know the soul and his girl still haven’t done the deed even as The Ender approaches. Seems they’ve been getting to know each other and making an emotional connection before they delve into the physical. The couple hides out in Sock’s house so they can get down to business before The Ender’s arrival.
The Ender is unable to capture the soul because of some mumbo jumbo Ben reiterates about two souls joining as one in the act of making love…blah blah blah. It’s all very romantic and lovely and things look good for our soul until Morgan pops up and captures him. Again, Sam’s efforts are thwarted by the devices of evil. Andi feels sorry for Sam and accompanies him to the soul’s grave to pay their respects and they run into the one soul the Devil couldn’t catch. Cue the foreshadowing music.
In an interesting twist, Kristen goes back to Japan to run a hotel. Sock actually started to like someone and she just up and leaves. He seems hurt in this episode, but knowing Sock he’ll be back to his old ways next week. We enjoyed seeing Sock’s sensitive side. It was nice to know that there’s more to him than jokes and snide one-liners. We’ll miss seeing him that way.
What did you think? How long do you think Andi can stay apart from Sam? How long do you think this Ben and Nina relationship can last? Will we be seeing the three boys on the singles scene soon?
