Castle Rock recap: The mystery man's identity is revealed - via Ew
He’s summoned back by a call from Pangborn. His father has committed suicide, out at the lake, just like Warden Lacy in the other timeline. And just like Warden Lacy, Reverend Deaver has a prisoner in the basement — the child Henry, the adopted Henry, played by Harris.

A researcher into Alzheimer’s prevention and recovery, Henry II announces to an attentive boardroom that “when continuity is interrupted, everything starts to slide.” That statement is the core of this season’s story, and a terrible foreshadowing of Henry Deaver’s own fate. Of both Henrys’ fates. But it’s also an argument for watching Castle Rock as a bingeable series instead of in weekly installments. Castle Rock toys with its own continuity a little too blithely and with too little command of its timelines, so that individual episodes feel fractured and unreliable, and not with the rich ambiguity of an unreliable narrator. The delay between episodes gives us time to reflect on its red herrings and detours without the reassuring sense of speedy resolution.

What happens to Henry in the forest recalls the stories Rev. Deaver tells on those cassettes — tragedies from generations past, told as if they just happened. Apparently Matthew’s connection to schisma had him experiencing life in Castle Rock as an unceasing nightmare, witnessing everything terrible that ever occurred in this place. It is similar to what was saw happen with the Bill Skarsgard version of the Kid earlier this season, when he wandered into a house and watched a screaming argument from decades before.

According to Fox, this “a super-duper special screening,” which is scheduled for July 21 at 10 p.m. PT, will feature “maybe some surprises,” which could mean anything, but we hope includes some more of Peter’s (Rob Delaney) backstory.

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.
As King fans might have already gathered from the above paragraph, Castle Rock runs thick with allusion, starting with its casting.

Set in the multiverse created by Stephen King, Hulu's Castle Rock is a generically gloomy small-town mystery that doesn't lack for allusions to the author's past work.

In true Stephen King fashion, Castle Rock possesses the creepy and enigmatic vibe that many of his adaptations are known for. However, I am not invested in the series even after four episodes. Something is missing, something just not quite there. A top-notch cast can’t save a flat plot. This Hulu Original lacks <...> - by ATVandCity [Ariba Bhuvad]
What would you do if you managed to capture the devil? Would you notify the police? The church? Would you tie it to a chair and pray for its redemption, or would you release it to continue its work harvesting the souls of the unsaved?
