In and Out of Hell
4 October 2014 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

The ambitious Mel Kirby has a radio show with his wife Gloria in Trinity, but he is trying to get a television show for them. Mel has a meeting with Sheriff Lucas Black and asks him to help him. However he does not have anything to offer to Lucas that has no interest to help Mel. When Ben has an incident with an inhabitant, Mel provokes Ben and records the audio of his reply. Then he uses the audio to blackmail Sheriff Black to force him to get a TV show with evil consequences for him. Meanwhile Caleb decides to give a funeral party to Merlyn and help his sister to escape from Hell.

"Resurrector" is among the best episodes of "American Gothic". The ambitious Mel Kirby destroys his life after manipulating Ben to blackmail Sheriff Black. Selena is extremely sexy in this episode. Caleb saves his sister from Hell with a strange ritual. My vote is nine.
