In the blue room. Yawn. I’m sorry, I’ve lost both track of, and interest in, this COTW so I’m not paying attention at all, except when Danny tells the guy that he thinks they should drop “the whole ‘jury of peers’ thing” and throw him in an active volcano. Really, Show?
Oh hello, Kono and your fugly orange top. Where ya been? Did you get stuck in the bathroom or something? Don’t be embarrassed, McG did that on the Missouri once. Perfectly co-ordinated with the varnished woodwork behind her and armed with only the information that Bruce was selling moonshine to a recluse who paid him with money from a bank heist in Chicago, Kono finds the guy’s address and off they –
Oh, she’s gone again. Can I put in a formal request for a Kono/Cath ep in which the men take a back seat? Thx.
So here are the MEN with the GUNS at the $594,000 complex which looks like a shed. I’m guessing the bank robber bought it for the seclusion because… damn. It wasn’t for the heated pool and sundeck. It’s so small that they check it out in five seconds flat. Nobody’s home (although in fairness, if I lived somewhere like that I’d go out as much as possible too).
Cath and Ethan are playing poker for sweets (who else is wondering how she and McG play poker?) when Bruce and the bad guy turn up. Ethan runs straight to the door but Cath is Smart and hides behind a wall. Oh, this ep is just one big targeting #fail. This guy has NO IDEA what he’s let himself in for. I’m actually wriggling in my seat with anticipation. McG and Danny are on their way because Cath isn’t answering her phone so McG naturally assumes something’s up. The bad guy sends Ethan down into the basement to get the suitcase with the money in it while Cath sets fire to some kitchen roll in the toaster – then when he goes to investigate the (slowest-reacting) smoke alarm (in the world, ever)…
Tee hee. Cath WALLOPS him, BAM! POW! SMACK! BANG! ELBOWS! KNEES! oh shame, that was quite a nice shelving unit WHACK! UPSIDE DOWN TWISTY MOVE IS AWESOME! SPLAT! down the stairs, ooh that looks nasty, but the guy kind of looks like he could do with a cigarette after that, despite being unconscious – and then McG and Danny arrive, just in time for Cath to look a bit smug, and I’m also looking a bit smug because I kind of called this:
But where are the faaaaaces? Humph. Never mind though, because I’m already sniggering over this exchange:
McG: “How’d you like that timing?”
Cath: “A little slow.”
I am a bad bad girl. But I’m rewarded for this by McG giving Cath the sweetest, loveliest smile ever, and then a little cuddle. akldjskaldjksaldjskal. Show, you’re just encouraging me, you know. (Don’t stop.)
OK, we’ve kind of done this last scene, haven’t we? Max having to have the Mile-High Club explained to him. McG James-Bond-ing about the place in a tux. Cath jumping into his arms (always said she was a smart girl). McG being all pleased with himself because he thinks he’s FINALLY figured out What Women Want (even though he obvi hasn’t, at all, but let’s allow him the moment).
But seriously, does anyone know where Cath’s watch is from?
(I’ve realised that I’ve been v clever here. Because of my choice of alcoholic beverage, I can now end this recap by saying – )
I’m so sorry, I just couldn’t help myself. I can’t stay away from the ugly, so here’s a slideshow of ugly for you. Please forgive me.
