..skinwalker and her imployer wanted with the boy? I mean, exactly. Who hired the crows? It's possible I missed something with the distraction of the noisy background but I'm curious to hear what you guys think.

This is new to me, so am not sure that someone had to hire the crows. Can you explain skinwalker to me? It is not like I think it is I hope, I do tend to be very literal. Is the noisy background in the show? Of was it where you were listening to it? If the show is like the books I have read the boy much be special in some way and therefore someone to be grabbed for evil doings or for keeping him safe!

The noisy ackground was at the library, where I was when I was watching the show on the computer. Skinwalkers were originally from Native American mythology, they were beings who could change shape or were cursed to the form of an ape/wolf-like beast to protect the forests or to forever hunt man. On the show however the skinwalker was someone who'd take another person's skin and where it like a costume, moving around AS that person. The show Supernatural did essentially the same thing with Skinwalkers..only less violent, and less gross. The Crows were shapeshifter people..they could switch back and forth between human-ish form to their crow form. If I'd heard right when Bob (the spirit/roomate guy of Harry's) read out of one of their many books, the Crows are one of the highest rungs on the hired 'muscle' scale. Someone had to have hired them..it seems and notion to me that they'd work of their own accord. I already guessed that on wants to use him for bad reasons and the other to keep him safe..the question is why lol..

Thanks for responding to this, being part Native American I had the term skinwalkers, however, some people could and do use it differently. This show sounds like something I would like to watch. What network is planning on or is showing it?

The boy was special but his powers haven't started showing yet. Whoever hired the skinwalker probably wanted to get him to "raise" him to do bad instead of good. They never really say. They didn't really say about the crows either, only that they had been "watching over him" since his "mother" adopted him. I wouldn't be surprised to see him in another episode later in the season.
