"Two souls, alas, are housed within my breast." (Faust)

This episode epitomizes the very essence of the recurring theme of beauty and sex blended with horror and death that personified season one. The positioning of the bodies of the slayed young couple as Adam and Eve in a museum in the Garden of Eden exhibit was a perfect symbol of this, and reminds me of the dumping of the ashes of the dead in the rose gardens of a park in "Gehenna". By this time in the 1st season, it was apparent that the writers has become quite adept at painting this chilling scene over and over again in newer and more terrifying ways!

Art and Karen, the couple in this episode, who had been married for 14 years, without ever having had sex, even held the same sense of duality within themselves. They were two innocent, tortured souls, and I didn't know who to feel sorrier for. Art, (aptly named, I thought) though he was a cold-blooded killer, was still an innocent, who wanted only to make his wife happy. Karen, his wife, was also an innocent, who calmly accepted the way things were in their marriage, and was loving, soft-spoken, and devoted to her husband.

This episode, though somewhat disturbing, was excellently and artistically done. The fluid filming of the dancers, in the bar, and later at a swing party, was reminiscent of the Pilot episode, with the beautiful, artistic way that the dancers in the strip club were shown. The basis of the story, though seemingly simple, is woven in such fine writing and acting that one cannot take their eyes from the screen! Like an aphrodisiac, it draws you in, and won't let go until poor Art kills himself with the tool of his trade, in a final act of desperation to capture this elusive thing called Ecstasy. Truly, a memorable episode!
