One aspect I really liked about this episode was the strong connection between the urban legend and the development of a “real world” history. The brothers are chasing down legends in this underbelly of the “real world”, this unseen side of society, and so the overlap between the “real world” and their lives should be distinct. That’s where I thought the previous episode slipped a bit; this one came together a lot better.
I also liked the snippets of folklore that were connected to the legend, such as the idea that ghosts or spirits can be trapped within a mirror and bound to it.
