Hellcats Review: Tension in the 80s...

at .

Hellcats rebounded this week with “Back of a Car,” an episode filled with tension, jealousy, and emotion.

The focus was on the love rectangle that is Marti, Lewis, Dan, and Savannah. I know that any great friendship between a boy and girl has the possibility of underlying feelings, but I was hoping that Dan and Marti were past that. These two have great chemistry and they make great friends, but that's all I wish to see out of them.

I want them to be like Lucas and Haley were on One Tree Hill, caring deeply for one another, solely on a  platonic level.

Back to the 80s

The quick movement on Dan and Marti kind of blind sided me. Sure, there were mentions of them as a couple in the past, but there was no actual action.

Just last week, she was hard core hooking up with Lewis. In fact, in the beginning of this episode Marti was extremely happy sharing her bed with him, and now she is ready to cry about the Dan situation? Hopefully, this experiment is short-lived and we can go back to the fun awkwardness of Dan/Savannah (Davannah?). 

Side note:  Savannah running out of the hotel room barefoot was a little too dramatic. I started laughing almost immediately.

Meanwhile, this week finally did it for me. I am officially stepping down as the lead hater of Alice. I know she is opinionated and head strong, but usually it just pisses me off. Here, though, she proved why she is a necessity on this show. The girl is a leader who has no problem standing up for herself, while refusing to be taken advantage of. Having her own storyline is really working out and I am almost embarrassed to admit that I am looking forward to seeing more of her.

So the Spirit Party... kind of a let down. The decorations and costumes were awesome; it just felt like they could have done more with it. Although the montage of dress up was pretty enjoyable. The party did give Vanessa a chance to show off her body in that Tina Turner outfit, as well as her amazing voice. Since she sang “Tempted” I can’t seem to get it out of my head.

Hellcats offered up another good episode for their freshman season. There was no Vanessa/Derrick/Red drama tonight and I can’t say that I missed it. What about you? Are you excited for Marti and Dan?
