Maybe we watched different episodes. The second was far more suspenseful and informative than the pilot. The tension in this one had me on the edge of my seat, whereas the first episode was rather a letdown after all the hype. So many questions left unanswered. I cannot wait to see the next one. I thought separating the family was a nice twist. I really thought that boy would go home with "Ms. C," and be the source of wisdom for the group on what is to come.

I agree with you that this episode was more suspenseful and better than the pilot. I thought the pilot was boring. The only complaint I have is that I can't seem to care about any of the characters yet. Maybe Travis but for some reason I really dislike Madison.

Hooray, someone else loved Betty's speech. I clapped when she said, "I'm a lesbian, not a moron!"

Part of that storyline is from the book.

Neither Dan nor Bill can make Virginia happy. Seriously, they're both married, they are both not free, for different reasons, but still. She is so smart, hard working and all, and then she still fools herself into these kinds of situation. I actually don't get it. Don't make me even start with Libby...PLEASE!! at this point, her kids are suffering more in living with an unhappy mom and an absent father than seeing them splitting up! I don't feel any sympathy for her, at this point she is totally choosing to be unhappy.

Ray Donovan Season 3 Episode 8 Review: Tulip

Not to mention that the "Central American Eyelash Vipers" were harmless corn snakes...and there's no reason that there'd be a tank full of animals stuffed with heroin hanging around - what, was the Fish and Wildlife Service waiting around patiently for the snakes to take a dump? Idiotic.

I decided to pretend that whole part didn't exist. I, too, was shaking my head at a bunch of snakes in cages still stuffed full of bags of heroin. Unless I missed the part where Lena was stuffing the bags of heroin into the snakes herself, it was a bit ludicrous.

Ray Donovan Season 3 Episode 8 Review: Tulip

This episode takes the most abrupt turn towards stupid of anything I've ever seen. The whole "bag of snakes" thing could have come out of the fevered mind of a 12 year old boy. These are not plot twists - they're hail mary passes made when the writers were tired, wanted to go home, and were completely out of ideas. Really, really lousy.

Ray Donovan Season 3 Episode 8 Review: Tulip

Another outstanding episode! About Avi telling Ray that its only Ray he can talk to about killing Kate. The reason is Ray was in love with Kate, he was willing to leave Abby and move on with Kate. Also, Avi went against Ray's order not to kill Kate, hence the reason why Ray has shunned Avi. Lena is close to both Ray and Avi but the killers are Ray and Avi and they share a special bond.

Any other time, I'd agree that Avi talk with Ray, but it's the very reasons you're noting that are why I think he shouldn't. Ray was actually in love with Kate and to hear from Avi about killing her might kill his ability to forgive his old friend. That he did it is one thing, but hearing about it is something else completely. I don't think I could listen while someone talked about killing someone I loved even if they thought they did it to save me. It would be just a hair too much information to get over. It's hard though, because I really like Avi. But he might just have to bite the bullet on those feelings.

This show has really upped its game. Tyrant is so relevant in today's political climate. Can't wait until Jamal and Barry come face to face. The development of their sons' characters has been wonderful. Molly and Leila have proved to be strong, determined women. Would love to watch a third season, but we all know what often happens to quality shows. Pray for a renewal. It is richly deserved. FYI, Scream and Zoo are also two well done shows of entirely different genres, so no comparisons are necessary.

I thought it was much more exciting than the last episode. A two-hour pilot of these two episodes would have served them better.

Mistresses Season 3 Episode 12 Review: Reasonable Doubt

Very soft ending. Narcissistic people never admit guilt as it's not in them to do so. Disappointing.
