Necessary Roughness Review: Life On the Death Star

at . Comments

Necessary Roughness gave fans exactly what they'd been waiting for this week, as Nico finally told Dani the truth - but then quickly took a strange turn as things got even weirder at V3.

The V3 Puzzle

"The Games Afoot" flashed back to Nico's encounter with the FBI 11 months ago where they laid out all of the possible federal charges against him... and then made a deal. If he infiltrated V3, he could walk away with a clean slate and begin life anew in Dallas. Being no fool, Nico acceptedl.

Dani now knows the truth but she's still putting the brakes on moving her relationship forward with Nico. I really couldn't blame her. It's a lot to take in, yet I was happy when she asked him directly whether or not he still planned on moving to Dallas. This time she admitted she'd miss him. Nico reminded her that the last time this came up she told him the team would miss him.

Dani confessed that since she was with Matt at the time, saying anything else wouldn't have been fair. Maybe it's time to stop playing fair and get in the game.

Even though their personal life was on hold, Nico and Dani were still working together behind the scenes as they tracked down Crabcheck. But as Dani pointed out in this Necessary Roughness quote, trying to act like everything was normal at work wasn't going to be easy…

But things were even stranger than usual at V3. Paloma returned after a two-week absence and tried to charge Troy with harassment. Unfortunately for her, I'd guess Troy was also sleeping with the woman in Human Resources because she was quick to make sure Troy knew all. 

Hopefully Paloma being fired isn't the end of her story.  

Then TK faced a possible career-ending injury. Was it a coincidence that Sheera was suddenly okay with the prenup when she realized that her income might just end up being higher than TK's?

And it turned out that V3's very special doctors at their super clinic were running some Dr. Frankenstein workshop behind the scenes. What is this experimental treatment they're about to conduct on TK and why does he have to sign a confidentiality clause to get it?

Turns out Abigail Bruce may be the key player in the fight to control V3; that is, if the FBI doesn't take down the entire organization first. Honestly, I didn't think she should side with either man. Connor's pleas sounded as though her were playing her and Troy was just his sleazy self. 

How will the clinic tie in to the FBI's case? Will Abby Bruce really side with Troy over Connor to take control of V3? Who will end up on top and who will be out in the cold when all of this ends? And, more importantly, with Nico and Dani finally hit the sheets before the season ends? With only a couple more weeks to go what's your guess on what will happen on Necessary Roughness?
