what an episode. i cannot lie i don't think there is any summer show that has me on the edge of my seat and my full attention like unreal (AND devious maids .. no offense to mistresses and rookie blue). i am totally invested and what the writers do a brilliant job of is giving all the characters some redeeming qualities but yet still have them do things that make you want to stuff their face with your fist lol. quin and chet are perfect examples. come on, i can't be the only one who thought their moments this and last week were very sweet and touching. they really belong together because they are both such scum lol. and as sweet as chet can pretend to be he wil lalways be a scum who does things like puts rachel's life in danger or having the PA "earn her way" to the top. rachel sleeping with two guys on the show and her overall selfishness at times make you want to hate her but them she always has those moments where she knows what she is doing is wrong and then feels guitly. anna really stepped it up and how 'horseface' faith (what a terrible thing to call someone quinn) has made it so far is shocking. of course rachel intentionally put grace in that spa date knowing she was clausto and also knowing it would help propel anna to the top of the totem pole. i am totally #teamracham like niyla styers is. their conversations are so deep and jeremy is just old news. this show is packed filled of meaty goodness & more gripping than went lucy tyler slammed mike adri. my two bones of contention: it was not very believable to see 1) the PA turn suddenly into a "baby quinn" & giving chet a bj. it came totally out of left field and went completely against her character (the little they have shown lol). you expect that behavior from a go-getter, career-hungry woman like quinn, not some doe-eyed baby who is just glad to exist in the realm of reality tv 2) them saying grace was 'smart' & graduated magna cum laude. grace has been nothing short of bimbo with a "big butt & deep throat" as anna so eloquently described her. she has shown absolutely no indication, not even an inkling that she is intelligent or has anything to offer aside from those aforementioned attributes. no need to try to play her up as being the 'ideal' woman by saying she's smart if she acts in TOTAL contrast to it. and hey keep up the good work Paul.

I did think Jesse may have something to do with The Stappords and Blanca but dismissed that idea. About his ability to switch in and out of anger, well we still don't know what/who he was in the military. But I think he's good too. The carrying a gun part had me a bit confused, like why ? But that's the mystery. I don't trust him. Always thought he was hiding something. But I still like him (unlike Nick) with Marisol. She's a hot, successfull and smart woman who needs someone. Ernesto, I swear I cheered when it got revealed he was with the Cartel. I have been waiting since I suspected that, and he saw Katy !!! That was even better lol. I couldn't contain my excitement as it was all coming together and some of my theories were confirmed. Rosie needs to wake up and smell the coffee ! Also, giving the necklace away, WTH ! Of course they're gonna hide it ! I'm hoping Carmen too smelt the coffee lol. Glad she got rid of Sebastien and hope it stays that way, but what was that with the wife ? That would explain why she's cold LOL.As for Zoila, about time she went home. This was obviously not gona work and how come the house is so big and she's in the room next door ? Especially after Mr Ouh-La-La moved in lool.
Speaking of Devious Maids, I couldn't wait to talk to ya looool. But I didn't wanna invade UnReal lool
"OOH LA LA" where do we start???!!!! lol. what an episode! i love them teasing us with Jesse, insinuating he may have had something to do with the murder of blanca while giving us plausible reason to think so by showing us his violent side which he apparently can turn on and off at the drop off a hat "can you believe the nerve of that guy (biggest smile)" lol. as they say, he went "0 to 100 real quick" and back to 0 again lol. i love the two of them as a couple and it's nice to see a hot older woman butter up & given a storyline (not a hookup but actual relationship) with a gorgeous younger guy and the contract especially from the neck up works so well. clearly jesse is not exactly the nice guy he tries to portray but i think overall he's a good guy and he isn't involved in any wrong doing (though i'm sure the writers will try to make us think he is). i wonder what will happen with ernesto & rosie since he is basically going to try to pawn off katy to the cartel. will carmen continue this "fling" with seb's wife to help further her own career and not risk angering the boss? how wil lseb take it when he eventually finds out? what were your thoughts Emy?
Your review is perfect. You fully understand the premise of the series and all the characters. It is always refreshing to see people who know how to review a TV show. It is why I do not engage in the comments with fans because as you can read there is an obviously irrational and emotional Tasha fan losing the plot in the comments section. This series is about Ghost not Tasha. Ghost is a drug dealer who wants to go legit. Can he? In that legit dream, the love of his life returns. Angela. She always was part of that dream before she left. Can he reclaim it? There is Tasha and Tommy saying no to that. There is Ghost himself who wants to be clean but also wants the luxuries drug money affords. What will happen? Especially as he snitched on his mentor Kanaan who is now out of jail. Then his dream woman is the FEDS. It is a great series. I do not get bogged down in the morality of infidelity or what not. I leave that to others to lose their rags over. Again. Great review. I will read your reviews from now on.
Thank you so much Cassandra! A lot of time and energy goes into these reviews and I appreciate you taking the time to read and comment.
Awesome episode! However, I have the sinking feeling that we already know how to kill Drill. Remember the camera view of Drill's form superimposed over the kid while he was 'speaking' a few episodes ago? I bet that Drill was 'with' Thomas' brother Elliot and that Thomas killed them both at the same time. So, which of the current group of children will have to be sacrificed to get rid of the new Drill?
I believe you are right. That's the impression I was getting too. Thomas killed his brother because Drill was "with" him and that was the only way to get rid of the malevolent entity.
Bye Bye Minx.
I agree with your assessment of how Drill was killed but we all know that killing little children on Network Television is usually a big No No. My guess is that one of the adults will figure out a way to draw Drill into them a la 'The Exorcist' and then commit suicide. Probably Lena to save Minx.
"but we all know that killing little children on Network Television is usually a big No No" there is always a first for everything remember Jack Bauer introduced American style torture in "24"
I'm thinking Sean might manage to reconnect with Drill and kill himself. That awkward conversation with Clair in the motel where he talks about being a family again certainly seems to foreshadow him never actually achieving that goal.
I could certainly see that as well.
Well, the killing children thing is USUALLY true, but I recall the last episode of the BBC series 'Torchwood' where an alien race created a link to all the children to blackmail the Earth and they used a child to reverse the link and attack the aliens. Unfortunately killing the child in the process.
Knew they were fake cops from the beginning, thought it was kind of obvious. And they were identified as ex cons, not just con artists.
I like that Labtech Susie and was always hoping that she and Frankie would hook up. I did not believe the storyline is she being crooked I thought from the beginning that the evidence was planted to make her look bad. Also I never bought that suicide story at the end of the last episode because of the placing of the bullet I tried to re-create a suicide using a hand gun (fake) and shooting myself in the center of the head and found I couldn't do it. The placement of the bullet look ridiculous and was ridiculous. From the beginning of the show when the painting was stolen I always suspected the owners wife or husband.
I definitely agree with you I do not believe anyone can shoot themselves in the middle of the four head with again I tried to re-create shooting myself in the four head and found it really is impossible that won't look ridiculous and it turned out it was ridiculous who on the police force thought it was a suicide!
I am dying to know the reason for Katie/Paige's BRACES! They're so awful and distracting, she looks like she has trench mouth. There was a pap shot of her removing them the other day on set so clearly they are not Holmes' personal thing. Weird character choice. Need to know the reason. LOL.
I didn't even notice that! She has braces?! Hmmmm...
I don't know but form last night's preview of next week .. when she tells Ray her father may want Ray to do sadistic things to her? I wondered if maybe the father had someone rough her up in the past and she had to have them fixed. I know. DARK.
I love this show! First, I think the military is looking for Red 17, and they are clearly nefarious and dangerous. Dutch was asking D'avin questions from the start, so she knows there's something up, and I think that is why she asked him to be on the team, and because he's Johnny's brother. It's not a coincidence that Khlyen showed up at the slave ship, (as we know), along with D'avin's memory loss, and forcing Dutch back to her former life. I definitely do not mean that she doesn't trust him, and that girl was flirting with him since he tried to choke her. Sadly, D'avin was right when he told Johnny that her enemies become his enemies, as indicated by that creepy little exchange at the end. One thing this show is lacking is where are are Johnny's secrets? We haven't gotten to know him as intimately as D'avin and Dutch, and I want to know more! I also think that the scene when D'avin confessed to only remembering what he did, and crying in the corner, was so tragic and painful to watch. On a happier note: the dynamic between these three is fantastic, and it easily could have slipped into a love triangle and Johnny all worked up about his amazing big brother, and how he's a third wheel. The writers deliberately made it clear that Dutch thinks it weird that Johnny becomes friends with people that he sleeps with. I also think that he is the first person who she loves, trusts completely and is her best friend
Just seems odd to me that all the guy did was break the quarterback's arm. Not sure he wasn't working for Paige all along. Maybe they did it for the $500,000 from her daddy. The two of them playing Ray from the beginning?
That would be a really interesting possibility. The Finneys are one frakked up family, for certain.
I enjoy the great acting and dramatic tension between the characters. But who is who namewise? That is a revolving door. An actor may mumble someone's name imperceptibly, than later you are supposed to remember them, and now they are relevant to the episode.
Days just isn't the same anymore .where are all the good couples and story lines ?????
