Kee takes on a case with a local Amish group involving a couple of individuals who are accused of attempted murder and a hate crime, against another Amish person. They post bail, and he hopes that means they can afford to pay him properly.
Meanwhile, he’s still on shaky ground with his bookie, not to mention the mayor, so he gets hassled every time he goes to the courthouse, and he even asks the Amish guys to pretend to be his muscle to avoid getting beat up again. It works, but just barely.
Kee’s friends, Ben and Scarlet, are renewing their vows, and with his new Amish friends who run a bakery, Kee tries to be supportive by offering to supply to supply the bread for the party. Of course, Scarlet gets cold feet, something she had before her wedding, too, and Kee has to talk her down, but he does so successfully. For a guy who can’t commit and doesn’t care for it in any form, he is a pretty good friend.
Also, BONUS, guest appearance by Alexandra Breckenridge!! Kee’s assistant signs him up for an app so he can get rides wherever he needs to go around town, since he doesn’t have a car or a license at the moment, and Breckenridge plays the woman who picks him up first. They get along great, and he even brings her to his friends’ recommitment party, but it doesn’t take long before he sees her brand of crazy is a little more than he can handle.
It seems like they’ve been doing this a lot: they pump up the preview with something supercool like dinosaur bones, and the case goes in a different direction and the big draw becomes sort of a footnote. Come on, guys. You’re taking some of the fun out of it.
Watson has been looking into one of Sherlock’s cold cases, and finds a skeleton of a dinosaur within a strange rock at the property where the murder occurred. The murder happened as a result of a crazed scientist who wanted to protect his reputation.
The slightly more interesting side of this episode was Sherlock’s new role as sponsor. His sponsee, Randy, is dating an addict, and Sherlock isn’t really sure how to tell Randy he needs to break up with the woman to protect his sobriety other than to put it bluntly.
Despite Holmes’s lack of people skills, it works, and though Randy did fall off the wagon one last time with his girlfriend, it seems he’s ready to recommit to his sobriety and Holmes is happy to oblige. It’s quite a shift to see Holmes putting sobriety above work, but his new relationship requires him to be the one pushing his sponsee to go to meeting and work the steps, rather than having Joan or his own sponsor do that for him.
Oh, my god, the cat in this episode was freaking adorable. I could end it right there, and tell you to just go watch the damn episode on that basis alone, but I won’t. But I could.
Simon, Zach and Andrew are focusing on a new account for cat food, and the cat, a male called “Princess”, is going to be staying in the office during the week while they prepare for the pitch. The company was drawn to Simon and his team because they had heard about their new “quant”, a young, bright, extremely nerdy guy Sydney hired to provide quantitative data and analysis to help the creative team.
Simon shuns the idea at first, which is why his daughter didn’t tell him about it, but after he makes a bet with the kid for who can make a better ad–Sydney, Andrew, and Zach as judges–and loses, he wonders if his approach is no longer relevant.
Meanwhile, Sydney is working on her own account, and the cat has taken a liking to her. He stays in her office, and even reminds her to take her notes to her meeting. Though she feels having a cat makes her pathetic and might resign her to singlehood for the rest of her life, she falls in love with the cat, too, and talks the Princess Cat Food people into letting her take the furball home. On her way in, she meets her new neighbor–a veterinarian. This could be promising 🙂
The quant makes the pitch to the cat food data, focusing on the easy open can, which is what the data said would make the difference, and the ad is a total dud. Annoying, plain, and a little too simplistic for most audiences. It will certainly stay in their heads, but not for a good reason.
Simon comes through with a creative play on the easy open lid, sketches of people trying to open other cans and able to open only the Princess can, to the tune of the can-can. It’s adorable, and it’s memorable in a more fun and funny way.
Catherine is still trying to pull strings from her prison cell, and unfortunately for Bash and Mary, she is doing so quite successfully. An attempt is made on Bash’s life, and Mary immediately suspects the imprisoned, poison-happy queen.
But poison is the least of Bash’s worries. His cousin, the daughter of a man killed as a traitor, arrives at the castle, also at Catherine’s behest, in an attempt to prove Bash’s illegitimacy on other grounds. The girl is pregnant, which raises questions of Bash’s fathering an illegitimate child as well, that plot fails too.
Mary, Bash, his bodyguard, and his cousin escape the castle to the woods where the girl goes into labor. Mary helps deliver the child, having watched it done at the convent on multiple occasions, but the pagans turn up in the woods and nearly kill the party.
Bash knows the chants, and after he and his companions, all but Mary, join in, the pagans leave, killing only a horse instead of a human sacrifice. Mary accuses him of blasphemy, participating in a false religion, but after she calms down and he explains how he know the chants and why he joined in–to save their skins–she realizes she jumped to conclusions.
Unfortunately, the girl dies in childbirth. Though it leaves Bash in a safer place in terms of his relation to her and her father, as well as the suspected bastard child, he mourns his cousin and buries her. Mary participates in the burial, now trying to understand her husband-to-be’s history and behavior in a new light. Though it’s still not completely certain that the line of succession can or will be changed, Bash and Mary make a better strategic pair than Mary and Francis did. Some might see Bash’s loyalty to his family and friends as a fault, but Mary is now able to see it as a strength, which will make him a good king as well as a good husband.
Bash started out as sort of a “bad boy” character, but this turn of events has been for the better, I think. He’s getting more three-dimensional every week, and each new layer shows him to be a much better match for a shrewd, passionate queen like Mary.
