The Dark Man makes the light more than a little scary in the Ain't No SunshineÂ episode of HAVEN. A nurse from the Hessberg Center is stabbed and killed by a shadow in the street and as Nathan and Audrey ask questions, some members of a grief therapy group run by Jess tell them about the Dark Man, whom they claim was responsible for the deaths of their cancer-stricken loved ones. When another person from the center is killed, Nathan and Audrey take the Dark Man seriously, especially after it stalks Audrey and the editors at the police station and attacks Jess. They learn that the cancer patients hadn't been given their treatments, explaining the premature deaths, and that the two people killed were responsible. Thornton, one of the members of the grief group, is blind and missing a shadow, so Audrey and Nathan trap the shadow and put it and Thornton under quarantine.
One of my childhood fears was shadows, so this hits the creepy spot for me. Admittedly, the grief group members swarming Nathan and Audrey with their stilted The Dark Man is real is cheesy, but for the most part, the shadow itself is menacing enough, and I'm glad the editors saw it. The more townspeople who see the troubles,Â the better. I keep expecting the town to react as a whole to all the craziness going on, but there's an odd calm. At the rate we're going, half the town is going to be under some sort of house (or middle of the ocean) arrest and the rest of Haven will just be walking around whistling a happy tune while squirrels run around with machetes.
