    Sheriff Nathan and his new girlfriend are also summoned, just to thicken the plot. And they soon uncover each other's secrets.

    The phone call originated from the house, which summoned them into a trap - like House on Haunted Hill (1999) . The interior of the house tends to shift, like Rose Red - a major inspiration for this ep, since it was also written by Stephen King .

    The aim of the ghost (Ian Glen - Game of Thrones ) is to make Audrey's friends kill each other. This is entirely plausible. Not only do they hate and fear each other, but the show could easily let lesser characters get killed. After all, it is Audrey's story.

    Audrey herself has flashbacks to when she visited the house, 27 years earlier. She was accompanied by the Colorado Kid - and now she has her first clues to his actual identity.

    shown 16/Oct/14

    Because Mara does not know that Duke Crocker (Eric Balfour - TCM remake ) and Nathan switched bodies, and that they are on to her deception, they try to trick her. They want to release Duke’s reincarnation trouble.

    Down in Carolina, the bickering brothers close in on their Troubled suspect. Can they get him to cure them?

    Haven Haven [Season 5, Episode 7] Nowhere Man
    shown 23/Oct/14

    Nathan takes Audrey Parker ( Emily Rose ) out on a case, to solve the mystery of the atom-bomb shadows. Unfortunately The Guard are on the prowl, looking for trouble. Ever since Sheriff Dwight (WWE wrestler The Edge - Sanctuary ) led the rebellion against the Leader (who is nowhere to be seen, presumably helping his brother avoid gateways to the Hell dimensions) they had no discipline. Worse, Sheriff Dwight is nowhere to be seen either, presumably out of town tidying up after the bad news the pathologist gave him in the previous episode.

    Duke Crocker (Eric Balfour - TCM remake ) is left with Mara, chained up in the hold of his boat. She refuses to cooperate, which is annoying since Duke is the only thing stopping The Guard from torturing her to death.

    Nathan gets trapped in a ghost dimension with Christopher Masterson ( Scary Movie 2 ).

    shown 31/Oct/14

    Nathan is still MIA, trapped in a spirit realm with Christopher Masterson ( Scary Movie 2 ). Audrey Parker ( Emily Rose ) does whatever it takes to find him. This includes calling in the ghost-facer (Kris Lemche – My Little Eye ).

    Duke Crocker (Eric Balfour - TCM remake ) still has Mara chained up in his hold. She extorts favours from him – she will help solve the mystery, if he tells her about his mother.

    Haven Haven [Season 5, Episode 9] Morbidity
    shown 07/Nov/14

    The CDC lady ( Laura Mennell , best known as Nina from Alphas ) is in town. She teams up with Sheriff Dwight (WWE wrestler The Edge - Sanctuary ), who gets a quick recap of recent events. Luckily Dave has a plan. They get the charisma-enhanced biologist (Jason Priestley - 90210) to skype in an appearance and bluff her about a jellyfish sting. Meanwhile, the lady coroner gets the town statistician (yes, even Audrey wonders why he was never mentioned before) to help cover things up.

    Mara is still trying to bond with her captor, Duke Crocker (Eric Balfour - TCM remake ), in the hope of manipulating him. Of course, Sheriff Dwight (WWE wrestler The Edge - Sanctuary ) unintentionally helps her by antagonising Duke and making it look like Mara was right all along.

    Audrey Parker ( Emily Rose ) and Nathan try to solve the case of the phantom in the dancing teddy-bear suit. When the phantom removes the costume’s head, his bullet-damaged head (with a massive exit wound) is visible. Not the kind of thing you want the CDC to look at unless you like being dissected.

    shown 14/Nov/14

    Sheriff Dwight (WWE wrestler The Edge - Sanctuary ) wants to stop the blight from spreading, and the CDC from sending reinforcements in, so he puts the town in lockdown. He also has to convince the CDC lady ( Laura Mennell ) that the Troubles are real, and then enlist her help in curing the blight.

    Duke Crocker (Eric Balfour - TCM remake ) decides that he will have to trust Mara. She conceals any personal motives she may have, and plays along with helping Duke to help the town.

    shown 21/Nov/14

    Duke Crocker (Eric Balfour - TCM remake ) and Mara are on the run together, shacking up in a romantic little shack. She may be playing him, but she is the only one he can trust. His Troubles are bursting to get out, so she helps calm his emotional state. In return, she maintains that the only way she can help is if he gets her a ball of aether. Luckily, even though Duke is on the run he can still wander in and out of the Police Station at will, completely unchallenged.

    Sheriff Dwight (WWE wrestler The Edge - Sanctuary ) keeps working with the CDC lady ( Laura Mennell ).

    After his night of passion with Mara, Duke Crocker (Eric Balfour - TCM remake ) goes shopping for breakfast supplies. Unfortunately, someone takes advantage of his convenient absence to abduct Mara. Is it the same person who stole the Aether? Will Duke and Nathan team up again against a common foe?

    Sheriff Dwight (WWE wrestler The Edge - Sanctuary ) enjoys working with the CDC lady ( Laura Mennell ), but Audrey and the newspaper editor are suspicious of her. They start going through her stuff, and make a strange discovery.

    Haven Haven [Season 5, Episode 14] New World Order
    Shown 08 Oct 15

    Duke Crocker (Eric Balfour - TCM remake ) frees himself of the burden of generations worth of Troubles. Unfortunately this means spewing them all over an unsuspecting population.

    Mara's mother ( Laura Mennell ) has no cure for the Troubles. She has two options - kill all the Troubled people, or leave town.

    The murderous entity that came through from The Other Side makes itself felt. It induces one of the troubled persons to create an impenetrable barrier around the town. This even blocks off the Bifrost routes to other worlds. But when the population realise they are trapped, they panic ... setting off their Troubles, which leads to more panic ...

    The police cannot cope. Since there are dozens on cops, it makes one wonder what the town's population is. An average police force has one cop per thousand citizens. It seems that Haven is completely over-policed, given its small population size, but the cops do not have the skills to cope with lots of Troubled people. Sheriff Dwight (WWE wrestler The Edge - Sanctuary ) decides to put The Guard in charge instead. Since he is leader of it as well, it is a simple transition.

    Haven Haven [Season 5, Episode 15] Power
    Shown 08 Oct 15

    Duke Crocker (Eric Balfour - TCM remake ) is earning a living working cash-in-hand as a manual labourer in a car repair shop. The head mechanic does not trust anyone who does not have a lengthy criminal record, and Duke’s records (bank, criminal and otherwise) have been wiped from existence. Worse, all traces of Haven itself have been removed. Luckily, an attractive young woman (and potential love interest) arrives. She is daughter of a Troubled person, and may have a power herself.

    Back in Haven, Sheriff Dwight (WWE wrestler The Edge - Sanctuary ) tries to keep everyone together. The power has gone out, and something in the darkness kills people. Dwight rations the batteries, and punishes thieves. Audrey Parker ( Emily Rose ) is smart enough to use the skills of the Troubled People, but only when it is dramatically essential at the climax of the episode.

    Nathan gets sent off to get the power generator working again. The town apparently has a population of 25,000, which explains why they have a large police department and other municipal facilities. That said, there are only a few dozen people left in Dwight’s care (think Under The Dome: Season 3 ). Nathan’s team includes Audrey’s mother ( Laura Mennell ).

    Haven Haven [Season 5, Episode 16] The Trial of Nathan Wuornos
    Shown 15 Oct 15

    Nathan returns from searching for the aether, and when he is put on a spot about the fate of his companion he cannot risk someone sending a rescue party, so he has to state that she is dead. Unfortunately the woman’s fiance wants revenge. Sheriff Dwight (WWE wrestler The Edge - Sanctuary ) orders that Nathan be put on trial – Audrey Parker ( Emily Rose ) is at fault, since she suggests it as a delaying tactic. The Newspaper editors are put in charge, since they have nothing else to do. Predictably, it all gets out of control. Nathan’s lifetime of selfless service to the community is ignored as a few incidents are deliberately and selectively misinterpreted.

    Dwight has to go and rescue the girl. He takes Mara’s mother ( Laura Mennell ) along to look after any aether they discover.

    Audrey has to find out who has the Shadows trouble. She has a single clue, but she is distracted by Nathan’s situation.

    Back in the real world, Duke Crocker (Eric Balfour - TCM remake ) is talked into helping his new associate to rob a bank. She is eager to use her superpower for personal gain, the instant career route to being a supervillain. However, Duke prefers to avoid police entanglements - as well as the risk of getting Troubled blood on his skin.

    Audrey's mother ( Laura Mennell ) volunteers to enter the dream-state to save her daughter. Sheriff Dwight (WWE wrestler The Edge - Sanctuary ) goes along with that despite the fact that she is his love interest - and more importantly, she is the only one who even has the potential to cure the Troubles!

    Back in reality, Duke Crocker (Eric Balfour - TCM remake ) has been abandoned. Luckily he meets the ghost-facer, Kris Lemeche ( My Little Eye ) who previously visited Haven TWICE. Unfortunately the ghost-facer does not remember either Duke or Haven. When he watches his own video footage of the previous episodes, all he sees is static. Can Duke convince him to investigate the mystery of Haven?

However, someone is using a tarot-card related Trouble to curse them. Can Nathan and Sheriff Dwight (WWE wrestler The Edge - Sanctuary ) save their girls in time?

    The serial killer is out to stop our heroes. All they know about him is his name (Croatoan) and his ability (to wipe sections of peoples’ memories). Vince and Dave and the Coroner have all got missing time, so they must have come into contact with him recently.

    Duke Crocker (Eric Balfour - TCM remake ) and Kris Lemche ( My Little Eye ) go looking for a faith healer to suck the aether out of him. Is it the old man who looks like Stephen King ? After all, he had to do a cameo in this show sooner of later.

    Audrey’s mother ( Laura Mennell ) is dead. But in Haven, there is always someone with a Trouble that can do something useful like raise the dead! After all, if she remembers how she died then she can identify Croatoan. It turns out there is a side-effect to the Trouble. When the dead person remembers how they died, they turn into a bloodthirsty zombie.

    Vince and Dave have a detector that will help them locate the bag Croatoan stole. If they find out where the bag is hidden, they can find the killer's identity.

    The old man with the time-travel trouble has survived the murderous problems. Nathan and Vince go back to the 1980s, to the day that the Colorado Kid was killed. As always with Time Travel, they must avoid changing anything. Haven being what it is, they would only make things worse.

    Nathan must convince his father and Audrey Parker ( Emily Rose ) - well, her previous incarnation - to help.

    Vince must keep Dave out of trouble.

    Back in the real world, Duke Crocker (Eric Balfour - TCM remake ) is snatched by some MIBs. They do not arrest him or charge him with anything, so they are obviously not cops. However, Duke does not want to stay around long enough to find out what they want with him.

    This episode was directed by Colin Ferguson ( Eureka ). And from the previews we discover that William is due back next episode.

    Shown 19 Nov 15

    Duke Crocker (Eric Balfour - TCM remake ) returns, with the space-shifting girl. Audrey Parker ( Emily Rose ) tries to talk the girl into helping. However, since she is a career criminal she is basically a wannabe supervillain. Worse, there is another supervillain girl in town. The one with the uncontrollable exploding powers is out to get revenge on Duke. She blames him because he could not control the vast number of Troubles that were forced into him without his consent.

    Nathan travels alone into the void. He encounters the Season 4 villain, William (Colin Ferguson - Eureka ). The unlikely allies must team up to find the controller of the old barn.

    Shown 26 Nov 15

    Nathan is trapped alone in the void with William (Colin Ferguson - Eureka ). Will Nathan try to win William's trust by being honest with him, or will he just continue telling a succession of blatant lies?

    Duke Crocker (Eric Balfour - TCM remake ) and Audrey Parker ( Emily Rose ) try to persuade the space-shifting girl to bring Nathan back. However, she has gotten herself into a position that puts her beyond help. She is a classic narcissist and blames Duke for everything, and he is distinctly uncomfortable with what he has to do next.

    Haven Haven [Season 5, Episode 23] Blind Spot
    Shown 03 Dec 15

    Croatoan is after Audrey Parker ( Emily Rose ), so the Guard fortify the Police Station. Every room is fitted with CCTV cameras, and one of the staff gets the Haunted house trouble so she possesses the building and controls every camera in it. The result is that the episode is shot Found Footage style in Real Time.

    Duke Crocker (Eric Balfour - TCM remake ) and Nathan bond over some childhood memories. Because character-building strays from the terrible cliche that everything must further the plot, this kind of emotional scene is usually a build-up to someone being made the centre of the plot.

    Croatoan finally makes his appearance. To avoid spoilers, one can only point out that the opening credits at the start of the episode list the Special Guest Star as ... William Shatner ( Star Trek ). However, this is not the biggest twist of the episode.

    Shown 17 Dec 15

    Sheriff Dwight (WWE wrestler The Edge - Sanctuary ) does Croatoan's bidding. The good news is, Dwight is a bullet-magnet so even if you do not aim at him, your shot will be instantly re-directed towards his heart. The bad news is that Croatoan regards this Trouble as a superpower. After all, if you protect the heart with Kevlar then the Troubled person is basically invulnerable. This would also work for Vampires, so Buffy the Vampire Slayer is lucky that the vamps did not bother with chest armour.
