Stitchers: "When Darkness Falls" Halloween Special Review  
Stitchers 1.11 "When Darkness Falls"

I was pleasantly surprised when I heard that Stitchers was going to have a Halloween special. Usually new shows don't do holiday-themed episodes until their second season onward, but I guess after their renewal they decided to celebrate in making one specifically for Halloween, which I'm not complaining at all. It was purely episodic and perfectly fitting with the spooky holiday. Throughout the episode the thought that the entire case was just one massive elaborate prank set for Kirsten because of her "I don't do scary/surprises" mantra, but I liked that it wasn't and was an actual legit murder case.

One thing about this episode is, I'm trying to place the timeline. Does it take place after the season finale, or somewhere during the actual season? Kirsten and Cameron are talking during the party and it made it sound like that he was thanking her for saving him, but then it wouldn't make sense to have this episode as though everything was hunky-dory especially after that cliffhanger. I'm guessing we're to assume that this episode, since it wasn't dealing with anything plot-related, is just a stand-alone and can be viewed separate from the actual show timeline between the finale and when the second season begins.

Regardless, this episode did bring the cute between Cameron and Kirsten. Her going to him for comfort and reassurance after being freaked out (and later we learn rightfully so) after nightmares and sensing something was wrong. My little shipper heart was soaring from their little moments in this episode, I'm not even ashamed. ♥

My love for Camille continues to grow, mostly because ALLISON, but just her character in general makes me so happy. Her love of Halloween in this episode spoke to me on a spiritual level and her vampire space princess costume was absolutely amazing and pure genius. (。♥‿♥。)

Overall, it was a fine spooktacular episode and it makes me really happy that this show is getting a second season, because I didn't realize just how much I missed seeing these people on my screen. Can't wait until it comes back.

Yeah, I didn't realize until I saw that it was mentioned elsewhere and I got all excited. I love holiday-themed episodes of my favorite shows, and I'm thrilled that Stitchers was able to make one! :D

This episode was a lot of fun. It was adorable to see Kirsten freaking out and going to Cameron for comfort. I was also happy to see Jeremy Sumpter again. I remember thinking he was really cute when he did Peter Pan way back when. XD

I couldn't believe the amount of cuteness that happened in this episode. I mean, yeah it's a Halloween episode so there would be kind of freaky things, but Kirsten being freaked out? Going to Cameron's for reassurance and comfort?? Eating chocolate as her comfort food? Taking over his bed and then after a nightmare asking him to sleep beside her and then THE CUDDLING THAT HAPPENED???!? WHAT SORT OF FLUFFY HURT/COMFORT FANFIC WAS THIS EP I WAS SO HAPPY. (◕ω◕✿)

I read somewhere that this episode took place in the middle of season 1 so I guess somewhere between episodes 5-7 because that's when they all got closer. Speaking of closer,the Kirsten/Cameron cuteness was OFF THE CHARTS in this episode <3

Oh good, I highly suspected that it might've been in the middle of the season though I wasn't entirely certain. It makes a lot of sense.

I was pretty much over the moon with how adorable all the Kirsten/Cameron scenes were. It was cuteness overload, and it makes me really anticipate the second season on how they're going to progress that relationship.
