Thoughts on Midnight Mass, Episode Four, Book IV: Lamentations
Thoughts – Midnight Mass, Episode Four, Book IV: Lamentations is a mixed bag episode, on one side we get plenty of mystery going on, which will only make us want to know more from the island and what is happening to the residents, this is everything good, something we want to see and learn so much more from. On the bad side, we get a lot of long conversations which don’t feel like they are needed, being too much to deal with. This is a story that is starting to rely on the bigger mystery going on, rather than showing us enough shocking value of what is going on, despite the fact it seems like we are starting to put the pieces together with what is going on. This does lack of any of the truly scary moments, this time, which is starting to drag the show down, leaving us wanting more from what we are seeing.
Star of the Episode – Erin Greene – Erin does go through the biggest shocking reveal in the series to date, it is a pain that can’t even be explained, despite her having a lot of slow dialogue moments, the character stands out in this episode because of what she has been through.
Best Part of the Episode – I am proud of you Joe.
Final Thoughts – Midnight Mass, Episode Four, Book IV: Lamentations is starting to slip into too much conversation, with the mystery coming together is holding everything together.
