All work, no play, etc.
Of course you can't do a Stephen King-themed TV series without some sort of connection to The Shining, and the introduction of Jackie Torrance, Sam Shaw, and Dustin Thomason throw the audience a bit of a red herring. While she eventually explains her distant connection to Jack, Danny, and Wendy, we learn Jackie's real name is Diane -- and she only changed it to pay homage to the massacre at The Overlook Hotel because her life in Castle Rock is, in her eyes, boring.
That all changes in Episode 8 after the couple who purchased Warden Lacy's old home decide to turn it into a murder-themed bed-and-breakfast. Soon, after finding a bunch of paintings of Henry #2 in the basement, the B&B's co-owner, Professor Gordon, hacks a naked couple to pieces. The aftermath of bloody body parts strewn about looked similar to that of carnage Delbert Grady left after murdering his daughters in Stanley Kubrick's big-screen adaptation of the tale.
Later, after Henry Deaver is attacked by both the professor and his wife, Jackie swoops in to save the day, striking Gordion in the back of the head with an axe. Sure, Jack used a croquet mallet in the novel, but that's just splitting hairs.
Jump forward to the finale and we get a glimpse at a chase happening between young Henry and his father. They're in the woods and it's snowing, turning this father-and-son chase into a stylistic callback to Jack and Danny's hedge maze hunt in Kubrick's film. Reverend Deaver was not lugging an axe as he searched for his son, but as Henry reached the cliff and slowly retraced his steps, placing one foot carefully in each footprint behind him, the callback to the horror movie classic was made perfectly clear.
