tidied up 'wham episode' a little
* WhamEpisode: Episode 3, Season 3, "The Farmer" In one episode, Audrey tries to burn both her bridges with Duke and Nathan, by involving Duke with a case [[spoiler: so he can use his power and kill]] a man who has been killing his own parents, siblings and children, sneaking in his sperm to a sperm donation clinic so he'll have more "donors" to kill, and quietly reaming Nathan a new one on getting a tattoo for the specific purposes of being [[spoiler: able to kill Duke to protect her.]] And introducing a new cop, Tommy, [[spoiler: who has people from Boston looking to kill him and may even be dirty.]] What does he do? ''Moves to Haven.'' The first two? Audrey did ''on purpose'' [[spoiler: to distance herself from the men she loves after finding out 1) She loved the Colorado Kid and he was killed and 2) She's going to disappear in 46 days.]] Not to mention that the guy who kidnapped Audrey is still free [[spoiler: killing people with a bolt gun and cutting their body parts off.]] P.S.: He knows all about Audrey, Lucy, and Sarah. ** Pretty much all of the third season so far have been wham episodes, including both a revelation and more questions. *** Episode 1, "301" - Revelation: Lucy/Audrey loved the dead Colorado Kid [[spoiler:Who may not actually be dead and needs to be found before "The Hunter", a note left from Lucy to Audrey. Also, there's murderous man looking for him.]] Question: Who is the Hunter? *** Episode 2, "Stay" - Revelation: The Hunter is a constellation. [[spoiler: It appears every 27 years and when it does, Audrey in her current incarnation will disappear.]] Question: If Audrey's abductor isn't the Hunter, who is he and what does he want? [[spoiler: He also knows about Vince and Dave and is searching through their things. And wants them to know.]]

* BrokenMasquerade: Though not to the world at large, Dwight finally decides to drop the pretense of keeping the Troubles under wraps in the final season, [[spoiler:when pretty much the entire town is given new Troubles that are out of control and they have no way to leave town thanks to a magical fog barrier]].

* CannotSpitItOut: The ''entire freaking town'' has this problem. So many of the episodes' problems could be resolved if these people would just give Audrey and Nathan ''something'' to go on. But nooooooo... Everyone has to be tight-lipped until the worst possible moment, and will even risk the lives of the people they treat as friends rather than just say something. To be fair, at least some of them ''do'' want to help, but they keep getting argued down by the people who don't. ** Which is somewhat justified being set in a small town with, among other things, a very influential reverend and beset with all sorts of secrets, competing factions, and being a (loosely) Stephen King-inspired series. ** Also, as Dwight puts it, many Troubled are too ashamed to admit that they have a problem. In Dwight's case, his father would rather let him go to Afghanistan than tell him about his ability to attract bullets and therefore admit he's Troubled. Kind of justified, in that it is harder to activate some Troubles if you don't know about them, like the taxidermy Trouble in "Fur", but it makes them harder to deal with when the ''do'' happen. Unfortunately, Dwight's Trouble doesn't fall under that particular tree. *** Dwight and his family fall under the [[BlessedWithSuck sub-category of Troubled who's affliction is quite frankly harmful to simply horrible with no real benefit.]] Another such family is the Troubled in "The Farmer" who's affliction makes their organs shut down and gives them the ability/need to harvest fresh ones from relatives. Failing to do so triggers the affliction in the target who then gets the need to get their own fresh organs. ** For some, their affliction is oddly specific or occurs when they don't/do do something that is somewhat out of the ordinary meaning that they don't encounter it in their daily lives. One Troubled in season 3 has the ability to turn animals into people but only when he treats them non-humanely. He was raised to do so with his family shutting down the animal aspect of their farm.
