Meadowlands: Episode 3

It's never easy disposing of a freshly killed body - and it's certainly even harder in Meadowlands, in which the majority seem this close to psycho...

Danny and Mark are presumably among the sane, and Danny has just killed Donnelly, who was trying to rape Mark, and the father and son must now clean up the scene and get rid of the body.

Unfortunately, this keeps Mark from showing up at that midnight football (soccer in American) game of the damned, and this sets Wintergsgill into checking into Mark's whereabouts.

Now that Donnelly's gone, Wintersgill may be the most violent psycho in town - and, actually, he might have been that even when Donnelly was in fine form. And, worse, he has police authority, whatever exactly that means in this fascinating, dangerous place of second chances that might kill you.

Meadowlands also has its quieter nutcases, as Evelyn begins to suspect when she goes to see Dr. York, for helping in having a baby. York, who's flat out gaga in love with Evelyn, makes it clear that he's willing to help, in, ah, any way he can ... (clear at least to us - Evelyn is just beginning to catch on).

Episode 3 concludes with Wintersgill arresting Danny. I have a feeling Danny may soon be wishing he was witness-protected in another town ... but no doubt any other town would not be a riveting as Meadowlands, and our enjoyment as viewers must always come first...

Intriguingly Miasmic Meadowlands
