I enjoyed the episode and liked the chemistry between Ollie and his "broken" short lived girlfriend. However, I think its pretty obvious that in virtually every TV show with a backstory of the main character that has a big time chemistry love relationship with another character that is blocked for one reason or another before the writers get the two together they need to have a failed relationship or two so the one holding back finally knows this is the one which also buys the writers more time and more episodes before they tackle the relationship everybody wants to happen. IMO poor Tommy is looking at some heartache in the future.
My one complaint about this episode is there just were not enough people killed in it. I think they only hit double digits. Just kidding, as I think the body count is a bit too high for my tastes. This is a good show I just hope that like other CW shows once they play out the better story lines they dont go for a heavy dose of soap opera type story lines.
Killing off Lily was bad enough in the insanely stupid dept but the scene with Cullen and the Swede calmly walking down the track so Cullen can hang the Swede off the track over the water was almost Felliniesque in its absurdity.
I suppose there is .001 chance that this was all a dream and or Lily is not dead but I dont think these writers have the chops to come back from this in a way a remotely buyable way.
Newsflash this is the first time in history a character wrote the script for a tv show. Only a fool or a madmen would kill off Lily especially the way it was done. So the mad sadomasochist Swede must have written the show. That or the Swede is the voice of the Gayton brothers in which case they should be put into an insane asylum before they go on a psychokiller spree. AMC seems to find writers who see humanity as made up of 90% dark forces with 10% of light thrown in for flavor. After Lily was killed I vowed to myself never to watch this show again. That will be hard to do because I love westerns and Anson Mount's portrayal of Bohanon. Gunslinger aristocrat with heart and humility. The Gaytons will probably end the series with Bohanon being tortured and killed by the Swede's son seeking revenge. I had such great hopes for this show and now its totally fallen off the rails (pun intended.)
