Private Eyes on the 'Case'
From the moment Harry found Bunny at that party, I just had the feeling that she was alive. They threw in the fiery car crash, but I had that sinking suspicion that she had gotten out (as it turns out, she wasn't in there to begin with and the accident was all a set up). As the episode progressed, the truth to what had happened to Harry turned into a fascinating tangled web of murder, deceit, attraction and in the end, a cover-up. Harry was just trying to make things right in all of that, but it cost him his life. Thankfully, it wasn't in vain. Bunny survived with her new alias and made a life for herself in New Jersey because of the risks that Harry took.
On the personal front, Scotty is still dealing with the truth about his mother's assault. I was over this story a few episodes back, so I found this week's non-developments to be ho-hum. Basically, his mother and father want it dropped, but Scotty wants to keep pursuing it. And from the looks of things, Scotty's gonna win this one. Vera is having some sort of issue as well. He's very tired (napping on the table in the break room!) and possibly a bit intoxicated as well. After all, we know it wasn't Lilly's "irish breakfast" that Stillman found in the gun locker. And finally, Moe got to spend a little time in the slammer. It was exactly what Lil wanted (and orchestrated), but it had nothing to do with trying to kill her. She caught him stumbling out of a bar and into the driver's seat of his sedan. Busted. For now. Looks like it's Moe's move. Unless Lil ups the ante even further.
Overall, a strong showing from director (and series star) John Finn (LOVED the prominence of red in the flashbacks that carried over to present day at times as well). CC moves to 12-0 on the season. Screen cap courtesy of RichE at Kathryn Morris UK.
ETA: I'm not one for award shows (as I tend to disagree with the results), so no post today on last night's Golden Globes. I will say a HUGE congrats to Glee for winning Best Comedy/Musical and to Sandra Bullock for winning Best Actress in a Drama for her inspiring and moving performance in last year's best film The Blind Side.
