Reaper Rundown: Episode 6, "Leon"

Reaper Rundown: Episode 6, "Leon"


This week's episode of Reaper was as sweet and fun as free Halloween candy. I just love this show! And it is, of course, most appropriate the week of Halloween. I love that the Devil hates Halloween because it's the one day of the year when nobody fears him. "I become a party gag. A plastic mask!" So, he lets Hell take a holiday on Halloween. This show is so clever. I love it.

This week's episode featured Patton Oswalt playing Leon, an escaped soul who has been working through his issues in therapy and may be a reformed evildoer. Check out the things I loved best about this episode below:

  • Sam: "We can see your wall of insanity, okay? We know what you're planning."
    Leon: "No, no, that's my Thought Board. My therapist told me to make it."
  • Sam: "This is going to sound weird, but are you okay?"
    Devil: "Holidays always depress me." He goes on to gloomily explain that Halloween has become "the commercialization of evil."
  • More highlights if you

  • Spike the dog was "on the torture team" down in hell. "Spike may not look like much, but he can make grown men cry."
  • Sock took the vessel with the escaped soul out to trivia night at the bar. "Dude knows his history!"
  • I wish they would bring back Sock's tendency to laugh helplessly when he's nervous. I love his wheezy laugh!
  • Sam is indignant when the Devil shows up in the bathroom with him. Devil: "Oh, please, with the modesty. I'm like a doctor, Sam. It all looks like raw meat to me."
  • Taking a page from the book of Stephen Colbert, the Devil insists that bears are the only creatures on Earth more untrustworthy and unreliable than humans.
  • Devil: "You know in a way, I'm the most trustworthy person you know. And that's just sad."
  • Sock: "I'm gonna hug you, okay? Like a man-hug?"
    Sam: "Yeah, that'd be nice... Sock, are you feeling my ass?"
    Sock: "No, something in your backpack."
  • Gladys looks rough from partying on her day off from Hell. Sock: "Oh, woman, we need to party together sometime."
  • Devil: "Sam, I invented therapy... so the wicked could justify their actions!"

Halloween: the night all Hell breaks loose. Literally. Loved it! Of course Leon knows his history...he killed President McKinley! Though I've racked my brain trying to figure out how the snowglobe figures into all of it as the vessel :)

LMAO the man-hug was hillarious! I also liked the bit where they tried to give the soul to non-demons at the dmv, especially the janitor, hehe.
