    This season sounds absolutely terrifying; I really hope that the first episode will feature a glimpse of the infamous “Bloody Face.” I like that this season is not relying on the supernatural for the scares, I think that real-life horrors will make everything even scarier. I have been trying to figure out what clues will be featured in the premiere with a co-worker at DISH. With the huge amount, we will be watching closely to see if any of our theories are correct. I am counting the seconds until I get to watch this premiere on my Hopper. With so many of my shows returning, I will definitely be putting the 2,000 hours of recording space to good use. I don’t know what to expect from the premiere, but I know that it will likely result in me sleeping with the lights on.
