Slasher: Flesh & Blood “Family Ties” Preview

[Warning: General spoilers ahead.]

This week’s fifth episode of Slasher: Flesh & Blood, available Thursday on Shudder, takes a deep dive into just how damaged Florence is as we dial back the clock on how she devolved so completely into self-absorption to the point of actively re-traumataizing Theo.  In the present, the revelation of the last death does nothing to quench her blood lust for revenge.

There’s no time for everyone else to process it and grieve, or plot their escape off the island — or talk Florence down — because soon the countdown clock is running again, sending the Galloways out into the woods for a particularly aggressive game of (not quite) paintball. And that’s not even the whole episode.

The aftermath is equally punishing when the victor finds out that Spencer meant it when he specified the rules down to the letter.

There is a little levity in the episode, thankfully, as Grace shares some sweet moments with O’Keefe. And we get a very fun cameo appearance from Thom Allison, who drops an exquisite, “Bitch, please,” as only he can do.
