More bizarre happenings in Maine's Haven, agent Audrey Parker (who now lives there) trying to detect a common cause. Nathan has become police chief and is her main ally, charismatic entrepreneur Duke often assisting in unexpected ways.
Everything is steadily growing more grim, with sinister preacher Driscoll striving to turn townsfolk against the "freaks", labelling them an abomination unto the Lord. There are also startling revelations about who inadvertently may be triggering the problems, and about who the resident is with an inherited duty to destroy the menace. All is thus set for a dramatic season finale....
The situations intrigue (little matters like Bible-style plagues, machines with a life of their own, lethal tree roots, etc.), the explanations often somewhat dodgy. In fact this is a series one should not question too closely. Simply treat it as enjoyable escapism, with a likeable cast all entering into the spirit of the thing.
13 episodes, but be advised the season really ends with Ep.12 (complete with exciting cliffhangers). Ep. 13 is a Christmas special, chronologically somewhat awkwardly placed in this DVD set. Generous bonuses include interesting details about the show's background and behind-the-scenes crew. There is a good feature on newcomer Adam Copeland. He was only scheduled for a brief appearance, but made such impact he simply had to stay. (It is easy to see why.) Opinions may be divided about the fifty minute question-and-answer session in front of an audience. This could generally have been better handled, the proceedings at times embarrassingly self-indulgent.
Makers hope for eight seasons. Some may feel this may be stretching things too far, but at the moment "Haven" continues to please.
