Theodora and Dean talk about the possible suspects and who could be “The Watcher” at the start of Episode 3 of “The Watcher.” Mo and Mitch aren’t on the list, of course. When the PI digs deeper, she finds evidence against Andrew that is very strong. He had said before that the principal of the school where his son went was a pedophile. Caleb didn’t even go on the supposed trip, so the whole thing was thrown out right away. She also gets Mo and Mitch out of the mess by talking about what it was like for her to have cancer. It looks like causing trouble isn’t a top priority here. But why would anyone want to do this? Why not just take pills? Theodora thinks it’s possible that neither of them wanted to leave it up to chance. They didn’t want one of them to be alive and live with regret.
Jasper has spent his whole life with his family. After school, he worked at the grocery store for almost 23 years as a bag boy. He stopped then. In November 1995, this happened. His family starts making payments to the Avalon Behaviour Health Centre, which they keep doing for almost 10 years. He didn’t say anything for a while. What did Jasper do during that month? Karen and Nora go to the club to hang out. The real estate agent says that she and her ex-husband Rick broke up when they stopped making love.
She tells Nora not to do what she did. That’s what makes people split up. Nora talks about problems at home, like how Dean’s feelings about Ellie are changing and how his temper is getting worse. Karen says that he is having an affair, but after she says this, we know that Karen will say whatever is on her mind without trying to make sense. She still wants Nora and her family to move away. So much so that she takes her to look at a different house in the area, one that is newer and doesn’t have any history. The work on the renovations is in full swing, and Dean comes home from work. He goes up to where Ellie lives. Dakota is hidden in the closet, and Dean is dealt with at the door. Dean meets John when he gets back to the ground. He seems strange at first, but he says that he is the building inspector.
He says that the house is fine and makes himself a sandwich. When they spend more time together and talk, things start to get strange. John starts talking about the “Fourth Turn,” which is what people in India call the Kaliyuga. It just means a time when a crisis will throw the world into chaos and a big event like a revolt or war will happen. He talks about Ellie and says that she is dating Dakota. John talks about how his own daughter was known as “the school whore” and how they took care of her. But it was scary for everyone in the family. John says he will be back in a few days when the building is done, but he later says he will never see Dean again. It is definitely confusing, and John leaves with directions to a nearby Lutheran church, where he tells Dean to bring his family.
Dean is scared and tells the contractor that he never wants to see John again. The contractor says there is no inspector named John, which makes Dean wonder who he just talked to. Nora goes to Karen’s house and asks her for advice about how often she should see her boyfriend. She tries, and Dean does the same, but Dean leaves in the middle, ruining her mood. She takes the kids back to the motel until the work on it is done.
Dean gets a call at work from Theodora. She tells him that she found something that he would never believe. She has a box of files about the history of the house that have never been shown to the public. And so the story of John Graff begins. This is the same man Dean met earlier in the day.
John was a great guy. He was a retired soldier who was a strong Christian and later went into accounting. He worked in the city and was mugged one day. Gladys, his mother, got some money from an inheritance and used it to buy him a house in the suburbs. It’s at 657 Boulevard. Dale, his son, got straight As in school and played sports. He really was his shining star. In his eyes, Patricia, on the other hand, was a bit of a promiscuous girl, while his wife Helen was just too blasé. He was fired from his job one day. As he took care of the family’s money, he started going to the bank every day and taking out small amounts from his mother’s account. John never told his family that he had lost his job, so he looked like he was doing fine.
When he got back from the bank one day, there was a letter in the mail from “The Watcher.” It said he pretended to go to work and that his daughter was having an affair with someone. A lot didn’t change but he kept getting more letters. He saw Patricia’s teacher from school dancing close to her on Halloween. It looks like she and he were having an affair. Dean wants Theodora to tell him that John wasn’t like this before they moved into the house.
Is he becoming more like John? She tells him that the man was living a lie and gives him a practical answer. Not to say that the house had ghosts. “Your sin is greed, and mine is being impatient. What won’t you do to give the house the young blood it needs?” asked another letter, which made John change his mind for good. In short, John killed everyone in his family and then ran away. He put on music—the same one that Dean hears in the house—and left the bodies to rot for 14 days. On that day, Jasper saw the bodies in the living room and was horrified.
In the basement, the police found bottles that had been filled with the blood of the members. No one ever saw John again. Dean asks him what church he went to and says that he saw him earlier in the day. Also found dead was Patricia’s teacher, but she had been shot with a different gun. Nora is glad that everything is over now that her family has moved back in. But The Watcher sends her another letter, which causes her to have a panic attack while they watch from the window.
The Watcher: Season 1 Ep. 3 : Review of the Episode
Every time a new episode comes out, we get further from the truth. It’s getting hard not to see each new person who comes into the Brannock family’s life as a separate intruder. But the story of John Graff was what made this episode what it was. If you looked at the history of crime in the city, you would find a few cases like this. It is not crazy to think that people can’t think these things. But the randomness and violence of this crazy job really stand out. He might be The Watcher. If it were him, it would be too easy, right?
But, given his “history” with the house, he might be involved. In this episode, there was also a joke about how Nora and Dean were becoming more like Karen and John, respectively. It seems like they are drifting apart, and there are already signs of doubt. Giving so much time and attention to the couple and their strange neighbors has taken some of the focus off of the family dynamics that were explored so deeply in the first two episodes.
Does the house make them different? They went out to find peace, but all they got was this trouble. Imagine spending your whole life’s savings on your dream house and giving up your future so you can live there. And then for some strange people to mess with your mind. Yes, of course! It is getting weirder. But the good ones don’t let you skip to the next episode on their own.
