Legally, this season is still a bore. And sadly, the interpersonal dynamics weren’t strong enough this week to make up for those shortcomings.
I get what the writers were going for with Rachel handling her first sort-of “official” court-case, but did we really need to spend SO much time on Louis and Nigel’s cat wars? I’m the biggest cat fan around but that mock trial was kind of painful to watch. Still, it was admittedly satisfying to see Rachel win (and do something besides play the supportive-girlfriend). Plus, it looks like Louis got her into Columbia so the storyline’s not a total loss in the grand scheme of things.
Thankfully, there’s an intriguing twist with Darby and Stephen being responsible for the Ava murders. While I think it’s a bit too jarring to suddenly turn Donna’s love interest into a fully-fledged villain, I’m willing to stick with this storyline and see where it goes as it undoubtedly spices things up a bit. I was hoping Donna would have a harder time picking between Stephen and Harvey, but this development made her a decision a tad too easy and a lot less nuanced.
– Louis drinking the milk. ‘Nuff said.
– How many times are we going to see Harvey and the team approach Ava about something that she has to deny/defend? This is getting old people.
– Jessica sure is on the warpath this season isn’t she? I wish the writers would give her some new material though. I’m getting kind of bored of watching Jessica attack people left and right.
– I’m glad that Donna didn’t get swayed by Stephen as we were lead to believe. She’s not stupid, and thankfully the writers are aware of that.
– The fight between Harvey and Stephen was pretty badly edited. The angles, the cuts – it just felt “off”.
Louis: She wants to be my cat.
Rachel: No, you want her to be your cat.
Jessica: What exactly is the penalty if you’re found penalty of murder in your country?
Jessica: And why is that you haven’t been sent back there
Cameron: (to Mike) This negotiation is over junior. Take your ball and go home.
Louis: When Mikado first entered my home, she was aloof. standoff-ish.
Nigel: She’s a cat!
Louis: I would take her out to see a bird or a dog, and there would just be nothing.
Jessica: (to Darby) It was pointed out to me that I”d misplaced some of my anger, so I’ve decided to place some of it on you.
Stephen: You’re choosing what you don’t have with him over something you do have with me?
Although the ending was intriguing, this was the most disappointing hours of the season thus far.
