FROM Season 2 Ep 5 is the 15th chapter of science fiction horror television series created by John Griffin. Its premise involves a nightmarish town in middle America that traps everyone who enters where unwilling residents strive to stay alive and search for a way out, but they are plagued by the terrifying nocturnal creatures from the surrounding forest, and secrets hidden in the town itself.

Entitled “Lullaby”, FROM Season 2 Ep 5 failed to deliver on the glimmer of hope that some light would be shone on the narrative black hole that this series is stuck in. Again, more questions raised with no answers given. When you consider that the folks behind FROM are the same as the folks behind LOST, it does not fill us with any confidence that there are actual resolutions to the numerous mystery boxes being constantly opened in this series.
FROM Season 2 Ep 5 gives us more information about the new characters that arrived at the end of Season 1 but that only raises more mysteries and seems to service a holding pattern in the series. So loads of time is spent developing these new characters and interactions with older characters but none of this advances the overall story arc one iota. The new information that IS given to us is minuscule at best. We still do not know what is going on with the parasites in Boyd’s arm, whether Father Kathri’s ghost was real or imagined, how much Victor actually knows about the town, who are the ghostly children that Tabitha frequently sees and why etc etc etc.
In addition, so much time was spent in this episode in showing the reactions of the townsfolk relating to Sara’s return but again, this did not move the plot forward at all. Yes, the townsfolk cannot forgive Sara for what she did in Season 1 but it’s not surprising and not emotionally resonant whatsoever. Boring in fact!
So halfway through season 2 and we are no better off from when the season began. Not expecting anything from these bad writers whatsoever.
… still there’s more …
