Castle Rock ‘Past Perfect’ Preview: Henry, Molly Learn What The Kid’s Capable Of

Posted by August 28, 2018 Comment

With three episodes left in the first season of Hulu‘s horror-drama anthology Castle Rock, things have turned more tragic and mysterious than ever before in and around Castle Rock in the Sam Shaw/Dustin Thomason-created series. Combining elements from a number of Stephen King’s works into a “shared universe” narrative that’s based around the (in)famous fictional town, Castle Rock stars Andre Holland, Bill Skarsgard, Melanie Lynskey, Sissy Spacek, Jane Levy, Scott Glenn, Terry O’Quinn, Noel Fisher, Chosen Jacobs, and Allison Tolman.

Looking at the preview for this week’s eighth episode ‘Past Perfect,’ the town must deal with some heavy losses while Henry (Holland) discovers a connection between “The Kid” (Skarsgard) and some new town residents. Wendell (Chosen Jacobs) begins feeling some very familiar pain, and Molly (Lynskey) goes looking for answers:

Check out our review of last week’s episode, ‘The Queen’:

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.
