Flashing between past and present, a fractured family confronts haunting memories of their old home and the terrifying events that drove them from it.
Henry Thomas (young Hugh Crain) wore blue contact lenses through the entire season. The elder Hugh Crain (played by Timothy Hutton) has gray eyes. Hugh enters Hill House a wide-eyed house flipper who never faced a problem he couldn't fix. As time passed, Thomas' bright blue eyes turned into Hutton's steely gray, as the elder Crain has pulled himself away from his children and the events that haunt him to this day.
Throughout the series, the cook-stove/range in Hill House is an electric model from 1940s or 50s, clearly (and wrongly) shown with an exhaust duct extending from behind it and into the wall. Electric ovens don't need exhaust ducts - gas ovens do, to vent the byproducts of combustion. The model in the episode isn't dual fuel. There's no need for this duct at all.
