'Case' is Off to the Races
Like many of you, I like to watch the Triple Crown. I'm not one for the pomp and circumstance surrounding it or the gambling on it, but I do enjoy the shear athletic power that these Thoroughbreds possess. You can see their drive to win in their eyes, so like Sonny, my heart broke for ---- and then it downright crumbled when we learned about the insurance fraud! How much did I hate that owner and want him to be the killer?? At least he's sitting in jail for insurance fraud. And, this wasn't the only horse he did it to!! Sick.
Speaking of sick, Jose needed some serious help for that raging gambling addiction he was nursing. There's being upset when your horse loses, and then there's being so upset when your horse loses that you take a metal rake to the back of the jockey's head. Apparently, it doesn't even matter if aforementioned jockey is your father!!! Just wow. This was a weird resolution for me. It's not that the show didn't provide plenty of evidence to show how emotionally messed up Jose was, and therefore, a believable killer, but at the same time, I had a bit of a hard time accepting the son killing his father as violently as he did. Then again, addiction is a powerful force. LOVED the mystery surrounding the will and the final reveal. Also LOVED that hilarious whip/crop scene between Lilly and Scotty. Who knew Lil was such a horse racing enthusiast?
Overall, another "good" outing. CC moves to 6-0 on the season. Screencap courtesy of RichE at Kathryn Morris UK.
