Favorite Moment: Sally's Night Out with Phineas
After the horror of watching her son, Jonas, get shot (and eventually recover), Sally deserved a little bit of me time. Phineas took her for a night out on the town and it was probably the most delightful thing she'd ever done in a long time. She never wanted to spend her entire life on the ranch and going out with Phineas reminded her of that. We loved seeing Sally dressed up, and her antics at the club were a lot of fun to watch.
Favorite Couple: Maria and Pete
From the very beginning, it was obvious these two had intense feelings for each other. While it might not be fair to Sally and the kids, the fire between Maria and Pete can't be denied. These two belong together.
Character We Want to See More Of: Neptune
Neptune came onto our screens during the ambush on the seditionists. He has no fear, not even of someone as horrible as Niles Gilbert. He has super skills in the gun department and is fiercely loyal to the MucCullough family. Who is this guy and where did he come from?! We want to know more!
Creepiest Moment: The Curse
Eli scoffed when Maggie read his fortune from her hat full of rocks. What he didn't know was that she didn't tell him everything. She kept the darkest parts of his future secret until he stole her horses and left her to die. Then she shared everything and put a curse on him to boot. It all seemed crazy until it all came true. It makes you wonder what else Maggie might have shared that we weren't privy to.
Craziest Scene: Eli's Scalping Fantasy
What a shocking opening to The Son Season 1 Episode 3, "No Prisoners"! We all knew that Eli had a dark side, but we never knew how dark it was. After being turned down for a loan, Eli fantasized about scalping the banker. As far as he was concerned the banker was now the enemy and fair game for attack. While it didn't really happen, It certainly caught our attention. Not only was this one of the craziest scenes of the season, it was also one of our favorites!
Worst Character: Niles Gilbert
We have nothing but contempt for Niles Gilbert who seethes with hatred for those he doesn't quite understand or want to understand. If they're different from him, they're the enemy. We still don't understand his tolerance of Neptune, but we have an idea it has to do with Niles' respect for Eli. Still, we can only imagine what horrible thoughts rumble through his sick, racist mind. If only someone would tie him up and teach him a lesson!
