I liked it better when jullian was the evil motivated by the unknown allister's hand. I think the character allister is good but way more scarry as a hand and a voice on the phone... what if he could come back all burned up and then he could start controlling people over the phone again. then it would leave the possibality of beth and marty being alive open to speculation. that's what i miss about this show the speculation now we all know what's up and aside from chad and his mystery lover there is really no secrets we don't know about. that's what i miss open ended secrets for speculations and the meedling in others affairs.
