This week's recap brought to you by @AliciaGecko. Thanks honey! Gifs by @neropatti and @bookemdanno_net
I am PSYCHED for this ep! Partly this is because the promos look AWESOME, but mostly I think it’s because I’ve just eaten four KitKats and a satsuma. Let’s get cracking before this sugar rush wears off!
Oh. Wow. This intro is a bit… different. I’ve never been to New Jersey, so I can’t tell whether it actually looks this bad or whether Show is trying a cute juxtaposition of beautiful, bright, colourful, sun-drenched, beachy Paradise with drab, grey, industrial Urban Nightmare, but if I were a New Jersey resident, I think I’d be fairly pissed off right now.
Ooh, who is this girl? She’s beee-yooo-tiful! I’m guessing she’s Danny’s partner, and because Show hates women, I’m guessing she’s not going to be around for too long. Also, no brunette looks good in egg yolk yellow, although I am loving the leather jacket and jeans. And holy f/ck this girl has an amazing figure! And fabulous hair! Am I rhapsodising a bit? I am, aren’t I? I’ll shut up once I see Michelle Borth in the credits. Probably.
They go into a warehouse where a Bad Guy is putting money in a bag. I know this guy is famous because I’ve seen it on Twitter, but sadly I have no idea who he is. Soz. Danny and (what’s her naaaame?) try to arrest him, but he has an accomplice who has snuck up on Danny and is now holding a gun to his neck. Sloppy, detective.
Snort. Danny asks Bad Guy if he’s enjoying patting him down. I’d tell you what my brain came up with in response to this, but it’s not repeatable. (Steph! I’ll email you!).
OK, Officer Tilwell is the partner’s name. I’m guessing that Bad Guy DID enjoy patting Danny down, because he seems inexplicably out of breath, as if he’s just run up ten flights of stairs. He asks them what they’re doing there and how they found them and when neither of them answers, his accomplice hits Danny round the face with his really big gun (not a euphemism). Eww. Blood splatters. Good thing Danny wore a dark shirt today.
