Nancy Drew season 1, scene 3, “The Curse of the Dark Storm,” simply completed the process of airing! As old suspects are cleared, new suspects have become exposed.
Nancy Drew season 1 proceeds with its pattern of strong scenes. The show is working admirably of making you all the while suspect and feel for pretty much every character. Indeed, even Ryan’s circumstance got some compassion out of me this week!
This scene was fundamentally centered around Tiffany. Nancy Drew is in a troublesome position since they have to manufacture her character after her passing, and keeping in mind that we made some intrigue uncovers, I don’t think everything arrived just as it ought to have.
The episode kicks off with Nancy finding Nick’s second phone and confronting him about it. Honestly, I’m so glad this happened right at the top of the show.
Nick keeps pretty tight-lipped about the whole ordeal, but does admit that there was a package in Mrs. Drew’s car. Unfortunately for Nancy, he’s not willing to give her any additional information. “It’s not for you,” he says.
As if she can smell trouble brewing, Karen’s quick to offer Nancy a deal. If she gives them something to pin the murder on Nick, then Nancy won’t be charged for breaking into the morgue. It seems like the perfect opportunity, but Nancy doesn’t jump at it. Karen gives her until the end of the day.
Nick shows up soon after, telling Nancy that the police tossed his apartment. Nancy admits she stole the phone and deactivated it. Probably not the best move to make during a police investigation where you’re a prime subject and your kind-of-boyfriend has motive for murder.
As much as she doesn’t want to admit it, Nancy obviously trusts Nick. If she didn’t, she would’ve handed the evidence over to the police right away, and she certainly wouldn’t have helped hide the one thing that could tie him to Tiffany’s murder.
Instead, she wants to get to the bottom of the mystery. She knows there’s more to learn, and she’s not quite willing to throw Nick to the wolves if there’s any chance that he’s innocent.
in episode 3 finally we get info about Nick and the secrets he’s been hiding. We see that the package in Mrs. Drew’s car was a clock. She was Nick’s social worker and the two grew close, with Nancy’s mom even visiting him after his case was complete.
She was obviously hiding a bloody dress in her backyard, and as fond as Nancy is of her late mother, I don’t think she’s going to be as perfect as everyone is making her out to be.
This leads us to a few spots where Nancy Drew lost me a little bit. Supposedly, Tiffany Hudson saw the end of the fight between Nick and the boy he killed, but not the beginning. She wanted to know how it all started, and so she began to visit Nick every week while he was in jail.
At first, he wouldn’t talk to her, so she began bringing him books. He would read them out loud, and eventually, it got him talking. Nick told Tiffany what happened, and when she learned the truth, she wished she could take her entire testimony back.
These books were Tiffany and Nick’s secret language, and together, Nancy and Nick figure out the clock, which leads them to The Count of Monte Cristo, and, eventually, the Lilac Inn.
The jumps seem far-fetched, and even though Nick and Nancy are both intelligent people, this all happened in the span of a couple minutes. It was a lot of guesswork that landed them in the right place, and while none of it was totally out of the realm of possibility, it also seemed fairly contrived.
We get a lot of new info about Tiffany in this episode. When we first meet Mrs. Hudson, she definitely comes off like a socialite. She doesn’t enter the restaurant, she doesn’t like the food, and she doesn’t particularly enjoy the town.
Things being what they are, Tiffany was a remarkable humanitarian and totally worshiped riddles. Nonetheless, this data is used, which doesn’t make Tiffany feel like a genuine individual, paying little respect to the way that she’s dead.
That aside, I delighted in the couple of scenes we got among Carson and Ryan. Mr. Hudson is stressed over funds however won’t state who he owes cash to. He needs Tiffany’s demise to be cleared of any suspicious movement so he can acquire her cash and pay off his obligations.
While experiencing the business dealings, Carson makes sense of Tiffany was dumping cash into the Lilac Inn, which would transform into a chronicled site in the near future. Ryan is, clearly, against that incident since it implies he won’t perceive any of the cash from it.
Ryan likewise clarifies that Tiffany was taking drugs for tension and an assortment of different reasons. He thought they made her loopy, refering to the way that she thought somebody had been watching them rest.
Mr. Hudson begins to hear slamming and scratching originating from upstairs. He examines, yet discovers nothing. What’s more, Carson can’t hear it. This finishes in Ryan seeing Dead Lucy on the roof in a shot that nearly cost me my goddamn life. Ryan gets scared and powers Carson to drive them to the hotel.
Ryan and Carson appear at the Lilac Inn, dropping in on Nancy and Nick’s gathering. The two youths stow away, which prompts a wonderful minute.
Inside the little room that holds the wine bottles, Nick starts having a fit of anxiety. He doesn’t care for little spaces as a result of his time in his cell, and he becomes terrified and unsettled. Nancy works superbly quieting him down, and despite the fact that there’s as yet strain between them (she still sort of speculates him he still sort of truly abhors that she does), I have a feeling that it brings both of them somewhat closer.
Scratch wakes up when he understands the last hint to Tiffany’s riddle. They remove some portion of the block divider and locate a safe behind it. After some progressively brisk (somewhat unreasonable) thinking, they find the key and snatch the container inside.
Scratch thumps a container of wine off the rack and the two need to high-tail it out of there, yet not before Nancy abandons an impression. Better accept that will cause issues down the road for her. (Oh no, is that a poor selection of words?)
Back at Nancy’s home, Karen goes up against her, inquiring as to whether she’ll take the arrangement to turn on Nick. In spite of the fact that Nick has a lot of motivation to trust Nancy will, she (obviously to us) doesn’t. Between the books and the sign-in sheets at the correctional facility, she shows Karen that Tiffany and Nick had progressed toward becoming companions during the time he served.
Scratch might be free, however Nancy is still on it. She’ll be summoned for her violations soon.
Austin, a kid he went to class with at the time, was inebriated when he began putting his hands on Nick’s “companion who-is-a-young lady.” Nick safeguarded her, wrecking Austin. At the point when Austin got back up and assaulted, Nick protected himself and incidentally sent the other kid out a second-story window.
At the point when Nick cleanses himself of his evil presences, the sun turns out and the tempest passes.
nside the crate are carrier securities — about $5 million worth. Scratch is clearly stressed over how it will look, and I’ll be intrigued to perceive how they stay quiet about this and keep their hands on that cash. Ryan is unquestionably going to follow it once he finds out about the bonds, and I have an inclination that won’t look good for the children.
She gets down to business the following morning, and it unquestionably appears as though the revile is genuine. An espresso pot detonates, a spear nearly takes her out, and other monstrosity mishaps happen around her.
That is not even to make reference to that the nor’easter as far as anyone knows blows in anxious spirits. We even get the chance to meet one of them! Rita was a visitor who was executed in a drifting mishap, and however she appears to be innocuous from the start, this phantom was certainly hoping to get her paws into George.
I urgently need to meet George’s mom, if simply because we’ve heard such a great amount about her. We realize she’s an alcoholic who winds up getting hurled in the alcoholic tank once per month, yet this scene, we likewise learn she may be somewhat superstitious. “My mom made salt circles around my baby chair,” George says.
Is it conceivable that Mrs. Fan sees spirits? Does she have confidence in the heavenly? Does she perhaps find out about Dead Lucy’s deplorable story? I trust there’s a whole other world to this data and that we’ll get the chance to delve somewhat more profound into the Fans.
In the interim, Dead Lucy was making the rounds this week. There was one case where her shadow (or possibly somebody else’s?) was going after Ryan, in addition to the couple times we saw her hanging out on the roof. This incorporates Carson’s last scene, where he feels water trickling on his sleeve, just to turn upward and for her to vanish.
Up until this point, Dead Lucy has just showed up face to face to Ryan and Nancy. Ryan saw her vis-à-vis, while Nancy saw her for the most part in reflections or just to some degree (the hand coming to down from the tree). What does this all mean?
We’ll need to hold up until one week from now to discover more. It’s reasonable we’ll be getting a greater amount of Bess’ story, as scene 3 finishes with Ace carrying Nancy to Bess’ van. I love that Ace leaves, not having any desire to humiliate her (genuinely, he is the best person), and gives Nancy a chance to do the talking.
Nancy persuades Bess to come remain with her, and keeping in mind that she’s pressing up, Nancy discovers Tiffany’s taken ring. It would appear that since Nick’s name has been cleared, there’s another suspect around the local area.
