Well well well.....what a tangled little web was woven in this episode. First we learn that creepy Carlito is gay and has the hots for Johnny. I think it's high time TV blew the lid off the whole "Latino macho" thing and recognized that being gay ain't just for white people anymore. On the other hand, Carlito's use of "maricon sucia" (loosely translated: dirty f@gg0+) was repellant and only points to Carlito's own sense of self-loathing (because being gay ain't in keeping with the Latino macho thing). Now let's talk about Jakes. Dude....you're an ICE agent and you broke the law because.....because......because some hooker encouraged you to? AND you paid her to act as your "wingmom" for the day? BTW, did anyone else notice that the hooker got kinda emotional when she saw the toys in the kid's room AND after they dropped the kid off? I think there's a child somewhere in that hooker's past. And last but not least, let's talk about Jess. She didn't get a lot of screen time early on so I was intrigued by the addition of a new character, though I didn't quite trust her. Now that she was an integral part of this episode, I don't trust her even more and have come to realize that the actress who plays her is SERIOUSLY bad--very wooden and unemotional, kinda like a female Keanu Reeves. As for some plot elements: 1) Why did Carlito abort the pick-up? At first I thought it was because the call was to tell him that the mule died, but the man in the cowboy hat showed up anyway, which means there's a snitch and Jess' unannounced appearance seems AWFULLY coincidental... 2) Anyone think Johnny will end up in a triangle with Carlito AND his sister? :-)

Royal Pains Review: Risky Business

Oh Evan EVAN EVANNNNNNNNN....You have sold your soul to Il Diavolo. Coupla weeks with some guy from NJ and suddenly you get all nostalgic? Sum'n tells me Boris is gonna have to bail you out...and you'll be grateful for it. As for this imperious attitude over Paige's business dealings, Get. Over. Yourself. As for what I liked about this ep is what I always like--the medical heroics--and this time, it was Divya's turn to be Medical MacGuyver--good on her!!!!! Oh...and cute "manny" too--I was hoping he'd stay. :-)

All of these seemingly divergent story lines are supposed to come together in the next few episodes so I'm eager to see how it all plays out.

Royal Pains Review: What's Next?

First decent episode this season IMO; Hank and his staff being clever and improvising was what hooked me on this show so I'm glad we got to see that; hopefully there'll be more of that instead of this "family fluff." Meanwhile, what's with this therapist who apparently has some SERIOUS boundary issues of his own? And why are Evan and Paige finding excuses to talk with him about every little "breakthrough?"

AMEN!!!!!! The whole "MacGuyver of Medicine" aspect's been diluted out and we're left with this fluffy family "intrigue." If you're gonna go for intrigue, Boris' storyline seems a lot more appropriate for that, yet he's nowhere to be seen, although..... ...Hank did leave a message for Boris about Monte Carlo and the promo for next week's ep does show Hank away from the Hamptons so MAYBE next week will be a tad more interesting.

Graceland Review: Caught Up

Briggs DID say it wasn't a good idea--that was the bit about dealers acting like field mice that retreat back into their hidey-hole when they sense something's wrong; that's when Mike asked Briggs to tag along. Afterward, Paige told Mike they were moving too fast. She may not have laid blame directly at Mike's feet (HELLOOOOO...she's sleeping with him!!!!!), but the perception is still there.

(Paige) could have had her hand stabbed by him any of the times she went to see him. I'm not sure I agree. Briggs' theory was right--Paige deviated from her usual MO and the dealer got suspicious. Instead of showing up alone and buying a few grams like she usually does without getting stabbed, she shows up with a stranger who wants a kilo and she did that because Mike pushed her to. THAT got her stabbed.

I agree. Mike's become quite imperious, and now he's shitting where he eats on BOTH coasts. This can't end well. Good thing he's pretty. :-) BTW, is that it for the new guy?
