People try to hunt this creature down in ‘The Price You Pay’
Last time on Swamp Thing, Alec had a visit from a peculiar person. He was unsure who they were or why they had come to the swamp. Turns out they wanted to try to help him understand what was happening to him. They also wanted to help them see what their role was to be from now on. Meanwhile Abby gets to face head on a mistake she made many years ago. When she ends up in danger this creature shows up to save her. As the episode comes to a close Alec sees he may not belong in Abby’s world anymore. Now the hunt for Swamp Thing begins in ‘The Price You Pay’. I was able to watch a screener of this episode and here is what I thought of it.

In a way it does, but with it there are some unexpected side effects that come up. We also get to see a bit of Daniel Cassidy’s past and how a mysterious deal changed his life forever.
