Carroll begins to unravel. He’s having trouble with his novel, and Ryan’s the only one who can help move the story forward. However, Ryan seems comforted that Joe is losing his edge a little bit. It means he’ll start making rash decisions, and while that might make things ugly in the short run, it will help them put him away in the long run.
Mike goes off it a little bit and really hands it to some of the followers when given the opportunity. It’s probably retaliation for them beating the shit out of him to get him to tell them where Claire was, but at least he knows he lost it a little bit and can attempt to get it together the next time around.
Claire tries to escape with Joey, but they don’t get further than the property gate. Being in the same house with Emma, the woman she trusted for so long and who took her son away from her, really has her upset.
Emma tries to make peace, but Claire won’t have it. You don’t mess with a mama bear protecting her cub. Period. Emma got what was coming to her, but I expect she’ll get more than that by the end of all this.
And Joe, frustrated and upset over Claire’s lack of affection, over his novel, over Ryan Hardy, takes comfort in Emma once again, and she willingly obliges. I’d say they’re a better fit than he and Claire are–not just because he’s a murderous psychopath, but Emma has that danger element that he appreciates, and Claire is just too much of a goody-goody for him.
Only three episodes left! Who lives? Who dies? Nobody knows until it’s over!
Norma’s in trouble. While she sneaks a peak into Shelby’s basement and does not find the girl chained up like Norman said, there’s even more bad luck headed her way.
Norman finds out that he’s been hallucinating, and while he doesn’t really get a chance to confront this reality, it definitely rattles him.
We get an appearance from an old friend playing Emma’s (the girl with cystic fibrosis) father–it’s Don Konkey (Ian Hart) from FX’s Dirt! Not a big part of the story, but I was tickled to see him again. Another show that didn’t run long enough 🙁
In any case, Norman gets a real dose of normalcy when Bradley (the pretty girl he’s made friends with) invites him over late at night. He shies away from it at first, but at Dylan’s urging, he goes over and gets the thing pretty much every seventeen year old kid wants.
I was a little worried he hallucinated the whole thing after last week’s hallucination of Norma telling him to get the belt from Shelby’s house and this week’s not-so-surprising revelation from Norma saying he’s been hallucinating things for a while. However, when Dylan used the information to put Norma in her place, it had to be true.
The big twist (maybe not surprising twist, but twisty still) is that Norma gets arrested. We knew that the sheriff (another fav of mine, Nestor Carbonell–Ringer (also unfortunately short-lived), Psych, The Dark Knight Rises) was getting close to pinning Keith’s murder on her, but what happened to Shelby’s “protection”? Not worth much, is it?
Carpet fibers. Good grief. I have a nasty feeling Norma might be too proud to tell the truth about what happened that night, why she killed Keith in her kitchen, and why she covered it up. Which is too bad. I hope she doesn’t spend the rest of the season in prison…
The sex trade and marijuana plantation subplots don’t advance much in this episode, but it’s early–I’m sure all the illegal activity going on in the Bates’ new little town.
Jess throws Cece a bachelorette party and sends Nick and Winston off to keep her fiance occupied. However, her fiance’s aunt is with her, and Jess has to tone down the sexiness of the evening so as not to offend the aunt.
Cece is a little distraught over how quickly her relationship and impending marriage has progressed, and Jess makes things a little worse by saying she shouldn’t be getting married so quickly.
Schmidt is on a mission to bring a date to Cece’s wedding, but none of his exes want anything to do with him, and the only one who will give him the time of day is an ex he had when he was fat. It’s fun to see him revert a little–while he probably had a different sense of humor back then, he was probably as hilarious as he is now.
I know there’s an audience for this show, but I can’t get into it. I spent most of the weekend catching up on shows I missed while I was wrapping up my book last month, and Golden Boy was the one I missed the most episodes of.
I was only able to catch up with 3 of them–for some reason CBS only had the most recent 3–and while it’s not a bad show, it’s just not doing it for me. The story is a little too slow, the characters are not likeable enough, and I don’t know enough about them to appreciate or care about them that much. So, even though I now have time on Tuesdays to watch it, I’m not going to.
Do you love this show? Tell me why I’m wrong to cross it off the list.
New eps of How to Live with Your Parents, Psych!, Nashville, and The Americans run Wednesday night. After that, the rest of the week will be smooth sailing as far as overlapping time slots go!
