Castle Rock Season 1, Episode 5 ‘Harvest’ Review: “He Feels Wrong”

Posted by August 9, 2018 Comment


Welcome to Bleeding Cool‘s first-season review series for Hulu‘s Castle Rock, the 10-episode horror-drama anthology series spearheaded by J.J. Abrams, Stephen King, Sam Shaw, and Dustin Thomason. Combining elements from a number of King’s works into a shared universe narrative based around the famed (and infamous) fictional town, Castle Rock stars Andre Holland, Bill Skarsgard, Sissy Spacek, Jane Levy, Scott Glenn, Terry O’Quinn, Chosen Jacobs, and Allison Tolman.


Well, I guess that’s one way for Zalewski (Noel Fisher) to get Henry’s (Andre Holland) attention and keep him in Castle Rock a little longer.

After an episode filled with incredible performances and personal revelations topped off with a still-shocking-even-if-you-saw-it-coming ending, Henry’s come to the disturbing realization that his past and The Kid’s (Bill Skarsgard) present are connected — and the future of Castle Rock is tied up in the middle.

And then there’s Sheriff Pangborn (Scott Glenn), being honored for his years of service to Castle Rock — but does he still have what it takes to turn back the tide of darkness one more time? Or will a deal with a potential “devil” be too tempting for him to pass up?

So as we gear up for a second-half of the season that’s bound to be filled with a mountain of revelations and sacrifices, check out our review of Hulu’s fifth episode of Castle Rock, ‘Harvest’:

Castle Rock s01e05 ‘Harvest’: A stranger comes to town; Castle Rock honors Sheriff Pangborn.


A psychological-horror series set in the Stephen King multiverse, Castle Rock combines the mythological scale and intimate character storytelling of King’s best-loved works, weaving an epic saga of darkness and light, played out on a few square miles of Maine woodland.

The fictional Maine town of Castle Rock has figured prominently in King’s literary career: Cujo, The Dark Half, IT and Needful Things, as well as novella The Body and numerous short stories such as Rita Hayworth and The Shawshank Redemption are either set there or contain references to Castle Rock. Castle Rock is an original suspense/thriller — a first-of-its-kind reimagining that explores the themes and worlds uniting the entire King canon, while brushing up against some of his most iconic and beloved stories.

From J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot Productions (Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Lost), best-selling author Stephen King and executive producers/writers Sam Shaw and Dustin Thomason, Castle Rock stars André Holland (Moonlight), Melanie Lynskey (Togetherness), Bill Skarsgård (IT), Jane Levy (Suburgatory), Sissy Spacek (Carrie), Scott Glenn (The Right Stuff), Terry O’Quinn (Lost) and Chosen Jacobs (It).
