Haven: Season 5 Discussion (Spoilers)

Our troubled friends from Haven return for Season 5 this Thursday. The two part Season 4 finale airs that afternoon, if you need a refresher.

When we last saw our pals, things were quite the mess. Audrey has apparently reverted to her "true self", Duke is on death's door, and William has been sent back to wherever he comes from, only to have Mara insist on bringing him back.

What fresh new troubles await our intrepid citizens? Will Audrey ever return? Will any of this make sense?

Stay tuned!

Re: Haven: Season 5 Discussion (Spoilers)

Newbie questions:

-If Mara's so evil, why'd she go out of her way to create the troubles just to give other people superpowers and not figure out how to give them to herself?

-Who turned mara into audrey in the first place, and why can't they find that person and shut the witch back down?

-Seriously, how did SyFy manage to squeeze five seasons of storyline out of essentially a two-sentence short story plot ("Dead kid washes ashore...no one knows anything.)?

Re: Haven: Season 5 Discussion (Spoilers)

It seems to me that William and Mara are (at best) mischievous troublemakers from another dimension, messing with people, or maybe (at worst) experimenting on them (Haven is their "lab").

It seems to me that Mara was punished for her deeds by being separated from William, and having to help those they cursed over and over again throughout time.

The guy in the barn with her was like her parole officer or something...

"And after that night, the monkeys never sewed again . . . ."

That may be the greatest line of dialogue I've ever heard.

Meanwhile, the big question: when did pot become legal in Maine?

Honestly, this isn't a very good show and the writing is all over the place. I only watch for the chemistry of the three leads. A lot of common sense questions aren't even worth asking for a show like this one.

Just assume that HAVEN operates on dream-logic and don't try to make sense of it.

And watch out for "thinnies" . . ..

I gotta ask. Otherwise all I can take from it is that from the total of three episodes I've seen of it Emily Rose is twice as entertaining as Mara as she ever was as Audrey.

Pretty much, yeah.



So Mara shoots the Sherriff and leaves him on the beach? Good thing there's no other people or cops in this town...

I wish they'd get a little clearer about this other world, and what their major malfunction is....

Just to avoid confusion . . .

Don't think Nathan has been the sheriff for at least a season now. I believe Dwight is in charge of Haven PD these days.

Right, they gave him back his badge, but as a regular detective, not the Chief.

Sorry about that!

Hey, it's been five months since the last season. My memory is fuzzy, too. So, Dave is from another dimension or something?

Re: Haven: Season 5 Discussion (Spoilers)

Dave was adopted, and Agent Howard was involved. In last seasons finale Dave was hiding the adoption records, and said that he had actually been to the other world before. That's how they knew he was the 4th person needed to open the portal.
