Chucky - Season 2Eps4 _VERIFIED_
Chucky delivers the best episode of its second season just in time for Halloween with "Death on Denial." Directed by Don Mancini, the creator of the television series and longtime Child's Play affiliate, the series' pre-Halloween episode could not have been placed in better hands. Co-written by Kim Garland, who worked on a number of episodes in season 1, and Fear the Walking Dead writer Alex Delyle, "Death on Denial" uses a blend of horror and comedy to create its thrilling episode that provides the killer doll series with a breath of fresh air.
Chucky - Season 2Eps4
In its five-act structure, "Death on Denial" warps Chucky's conception of time. Beginning where "The Sinners Are Much More Fun" left off, Chucky's latest episode appears to continue chronologically. It isn't until Glen is shown chatting with Nica that this timely balance is thrown off. This is later confirmed by the intertitle card that transports viewers back three months when Glen and Glenda discovered Nica locked away. It is in this scene that Glenda becomes reacquainted with Chucky. However, the return to the present begs the question of how much Glen and Glenda were working together. Glenda expects Glen to leave Tiffany's home with them despite the attempted murder of Tiffany. It's also revealed that Glenda hadn't shared their knowledge of Tiffany and Chucky with Glen, goading Glen to ask their mother about Tiffany Valentine. Chucky throws one final twist into the mix as Nica and Glenda enter a car driven by Kyle (Christine Elise), who was presumed dead in the season 1 finale.
In doing so, "Death on Denial" alters the series' formula thus far by shifting the focus from Jake (Zackary Arthur), Devon (Björgvin Arnarson), and Lexy (Alyvia Alyn Lind), to Tiffany and the twins. By reintroducing Kyle into the mix and appearing to free Nica from Tiffany's control, the question of how these allegiances to various characters will play out remains. The identity of "The Colonel" remains a mystery; Nica's deal with Chucky is up in the air, as are Glenda's true motives. Kyle's own connection to the three teens is certain to complicate the characters' ability to see eye to eye. With Chucky's list of potential victims continuing to grow and a new set of troubles being brought to the table, the second season of Chucky is shaping up to have much higher stakes than its first. 041b061a72
