As we steadily continue our slow climb to the end of Season 1, we encounter an episode that has…some issues.

And was this episode just one big setup to recreate a shot from The Graduate? All this, and what the hosts think of the hooting and hollering during their swims...

As events unfold and new crimes are uncovered, what will it mean for all involved? What will it mean for Pike County?
