FALLOUT:
Six months have passed since Audrey (played by Emily Rose) and Duke (played by Eric Balfour) disappeared after the meteor storm. During those months the people of Haven have believed that both Audrey and Duke were killed but when Duke finds himself being expelled from the barn, he comes to the conclusion that Audrey could also be alive. Making his way back to Haven is turning out to be harder than expected but it's Duke's only plan until he can find Audrey.

MY THOUGHTS:
Haven is one of those shows that if you don't watch from the beginning you won't know what's going on. Each season is a progression from the last, epsecially the season openers, and this season was no different. Fallout picks up six months after the ending of season 3, which I'm going to assume that at one point during season 4 they will go back to what happened during those missing 6 months or they will show parts of it throughout the season.  Which I'm sure for all the dedicated Haven viewers/followers, this season will be entertaining. I know that I like it when shows do the missing months at the start of a new season because I know at some point I will be shown those months and I know there will be a mystery until then. Then again there are times that this plot device is used but then they just give away the missing time in one episode and it's nothing special.
Fallout though was entertaining, even though I was finding it hard to keep up with. Not being one of the regular watchers of the show I didn't know what was going on. This would be the biggest problem with the show because anyone that might want to start watching wouldn't know what's going on with anything. All the characters are confusing as to who they are, one seems like he's a bad guy, one is being called a criminal but seems to be a good guy, and there's the problem with who is actually the main character. Then again if the show had made it where anyone could start watching and know what's going on without ever seeing the show would only have made it be a cheap recap. I think this will be a good opening episode for anyone that watched the previous season. It has some decent acting, the affects are good, the plot left me guessing, there's a mystery to the story, and it has point that it seems to be going to. Watching this episode I can see how this show has grown since the first season and how the actors have really grown into their characters.
