Psychoville: Review: Season 2 Ep 5

BBC Two; June 2, 2011

The hunt for the locket heats up as Jeremy’s link to Nurse Kenchington is revealed…

One of the more unusual torture scenes in recent memory is a highlight of this episode which finally starts to pull all the pieces together as we learn that Jeremy’s period as a patient saw him working alongside Kenchington on a formula for something, presumably connected to the head of a dead Nazi that Mr Jelly finds at a cryogenic storage vault.

The black comedy continues with David and Maureen Sowerbutts, who seem disconnected from the other parts of the plot, with a wry smile evoked from David’s weird post-death ritual (which itself follows a quite touching final scene between them).

The final death is hardly a surprise once Peter Bishop (no, not the one from Fringe!) shows his true colours – it’s always seemed odd that someone who clearly has an affinity for Nazi memorabilia would befriend someone of Tealeaf’s racial origins, and now the reasons are clear.

As everyone converges on London for the finale, it won’t be too surprising to discover that one of the “deaths” so far isn’t real – but whose?

Verdict: Back on track.  7/10
