Holmes questions Gottlieb (F. Murray Abraham of ‘Amadeus’ and ‘Last Action Hero’), then yet another sidekick of Moriarty’s shows up and the mystery of the man himself builds. We’ll see if this show can pull off Moriarty after building him up to Keyser Soze levels of evil. There is a revelation, Moran (Vinnie Jones) shows an unexpected weakness, Gregson is stupid, someone may be dead and there is a cliffhanger. This was good.
“Poke the hive with a stick?”
“An army of bee assassins.”
“Sebastian Moran was a notorious hardman in Shoreditch.”
Conrad grubs in the gutter, again. The revenge mentor shows up to drone on. Flashbacks to 1973 show how Victoria threw her son into an orphanage after conning her way into a two year art school scholarship in Paris. Everyone waves around an ipad. Vanity Fair compares Daniel and Emily to John-John and Caroline, which is spectacularly tasteless when you think about it.
Jack revokes Emily’s godmother status. A live TV interview goes badly for the Graysons. Daniel asks his primary sexual outlet aka Emily to marry him. Everyone is in the Hamptons despite summer being over - why aren’t they in NY? The Graysons are contemptible. This was okay but if there is a season 3, I doubt I’ll be watching.
“I’m done with Emily.”
“If you’re thinking of jumping, allow me to assist you.”
“Are you now denying that you abandoned a 6 month old boy named Patrick to enrol in a European art school?”
Will mutters about antler velvet, has visions, adopts stray dogs and didn’t make it by the FBI screening process. Jack Crawford has no indoor voice. Lecter is a shrink, an artist and a chef. He wears loud suits in his gothic office and eats a girl’s lungs. He also looks like Dan from ‘One Tree Hill’ and cannot enunciate properly.
Lecter ‘befriends’ Will by bringing him sausages which Will eats. I wonder what is in those sausages. Will tracks down the killer but Lecter has an agenda of his own and sets up a violent confrontation. This was okay.
“No bodies, no parts of bodies, nothing that comes out of bodies.”
“What are you doing in here?”
“USE THE LADIES ROOM!”
“Feeling bad defeats the purpose of being a psychopath doesn’t it?”
“WHAT KIND OF CRAZY IS HE?”
“I don’t find you that interesting.”
Zack is awful, Ripp has a big secret and the shrill harpies stumble around in the desert swigging tequila and having hysterics. There is plot set up: Pastor Tudor kisses Amanda, Luke is dumped, Ripp confesses he has a lovechild to Carlene and Blake realises Cricket is falling for Mason who knows their big secret. The show was axed so it all comes to naught. This show was amusing camp at times but this final ep was a massive unfunny letdown.
“You don’t look like an axe murderer.”
“Sweet uninvited Amanda.”
“Gimme the worm, I need protein.”
