At the start of The Watcher episode 5, it is a bright morning in Westfield. Nora sniffs around now that she has more time to deal with things. She looks at the call history on their home phone. Remember when she got a call at the motel while Dean was sleeping at home? The man on the other end of the line just kept breathing heavily and didn’t say anything. Nora finds the number and figures out that the call came from the house, which we already knew from the end of episode 2. She gets together with Theodora to talk about the news. We have a good idea of what she will decide in the end.
The real estate agent talks about their condo in Florida, which is something only the couple knows. So, you should be able to recognise a shark when you see one. She tries to get them to sell the house and move there to live out the rest of their lives in a sneaky way. She and Darren, who sometimes use an anonymous LLC to buy cheap houses and then sell them for a profit, will take care of the “stigmatised property.” Big Mo is not taking any nonsense. It’s like when Phyllis and Dwight had a fight about who was more important.
Theodora has done some research and found some shocking things for Mrs. Brannock to know. She says that it is likely that Dean wrote the third letter, which was confirmed by her contact at the bureau. Probably not the first or second, but probably the third. Dean was found out because his Valentine’s card had an unstyled “k.” Wait, so Theodora is also involved? I cannot decide. Can you? Theodora then tells them some more exciting news. She talked to Steve after she met him. The fact that Nora agreed to the high-interest loan from a risky person and that her savings were sold are all things that come out of the rabbit hole. And he won’t be making any new friends. Dean has done a terrible job. He and Nora don’t seem likely to ever get back together. Will the one who watches win?
Dean stands outside until Andrew comes out. He talks to him and asks if Andrew was telling the truth when he said he was staying in the house. But Andrew just shrugs and tells him that he did. Even though everything he said was true, he didn’t like how Dean was bothering him. Nora finally hears good news from the person in charge of the gallery where her art is on display. They have all sold out. She orders Nora to do another show, which makes her very happy. Nora hasn’t talked to Dean yet, and she sees a person in her garden. She gets closer and sees that it’s Pearl.
She is invited to a lunch in Mo’s honour by the weird sister. This meeting is a big surprise in and of itself. All three actresses make it easy to feel the tension, which is also an important part of the story. Mo and Pearl talk about how their house hasn’t changed at all since they bought it. They sneak looks at each other and try to tell Nora something that isn’t true. Every time someone says something, the other person looks at Nora to see if she believes them or not. Mo talks about her mentally ill son and how he took homeless people from a shelter and shot them to get the money from the insurance. When Pearl says that she thinks Jasper is the one writing the letters, she thinks that Christopher is.
Pearl says she got a message herself a few years ago. It said, “An Ode to a House.” It was like writing the house a love letter. Something moves in the walls, and Nora runs out of the room as soon as it won’t bother them. Ellie tells Nora she’s sorry and that this is a flaw in her personality. She tells Ellie about the poem to see if she can figure out what it means. Dean meets Dakota, and Dakota tells Dean that he was wrong not to believe Dean. When he looked at the footage again, he saw that only Dean went in and out of the house that day. Where then did the girl come from? Anyway, he surprises Nora when he shows up at her house with Dakota, who tells her what happened.
It really was a set-up. Dean tells Nora about the third letter when she asks him about it. Why on earth would he do that? It is a shocking truth that throws her off balance. Right now, the relationship is on a very thin thread. Nora brings Dean to Chamberland. She told Chamberland to tell Dean about the DNA results. Chamberland says she’s sorry and that the DNA sample shows that the person watching is a woman. For now, Dean is back in the house.
The couple starts their search for the watcher all over again. They don’t believe the DNA thing, but they still think a man did it. When they think about it more, they try to find someone who could explain why the Brannocks would want to sell the house: for money. Just so you know, that’s not the “only” reason why some people do things. When they see Karen and Chamberland at the club together, they accuse them of planning the plot. Even though it is unlikely, they fight back and threaten them with all kinds of things, especially Chamberland. The family will suffer a lot from being shamed in public. They now think that Theodora might be involved, too, because Chamberland suggested her.
An Ode to the House is the name of a Facebook group that Ellie knows about. Nora looks through it and remembers a picture from episode 1, “The Open House,” of the man with the bowtie. Robert Kaplan taught English, and one of the things he had his students do was write love letters to houses in the area. The contractor sends them away to tell them about something he found in the basement. There is a hidden door that leads to a tunnel. As they move forward, they see something missing running away from them. Do they have eyes?
The Watcher: Season 1 Ep. 5 : Review of the Episode
And there’s a tunnel ahead! This episode has a lot of “What the heck?” moments. The more the Brannocks try to solve this impossible mystery, the more often they see them. The tunnel is a big surprise, but it was a little disappointing that the Andrew thing didn’t go anywhere. Mitch and Mo’s sudden return wasn’t as scary as we wanted it to be, either.
But aside from these dolly points, The Watcher has given Ryan Murphy everything he would have wanted from the final product. People might have thought that because the story was based on a true crime, the dramatisation wouldn’t take any big risks. But people said those things without knowing the whole story.
We have jumped right into the show without knowing anything about it, and it is so nice not to. Episode 5 also made it clear that Nora and Dean are together for good, which is a good turn of events. Karen is finally mad, and it will be well worth the money to see an angry Jennifer Coolidge. Well, The Watcher has gone against the grain and come up with a story that is crazy and interesting.
