    Whilst the "small-town murder" story had an effective cliffhanger last episode, the continued presence of it in this episode was hugely boring. The writers could have tried to make the victim's life a little more tabloid-y, but that goes nowhere, leaving the storyline ending up with the feel of a rejected CS-, scratch that, Close to Home script. I was also disappointed with Chuck Lafoon here. He made for an entertaining foil for Lucy last episode, but that's underused here, and it's a shame they're wasting Paul Reubens' talents.



    The LA-based stories had more success, in particular the budding relationship between Don and Abby. I loved Lucy's involvement in the story, especially when she essentially warned Abby away from her best photographer. Lucy and Don have an intriguing relationship. Sometimes you get the impression they're genuinely friends, but I can't help but feel that Don is the only one truly feeling that way, and Lucy sees him as nothing but an excellent photographer. But maybe she'll surprise me and turn it around soon...



    It was also intriguing to see Willa and Brent get together, since it was hinted at in a previous episode. I have no idea why Willa would actually sleep with the guy though, since we had all figured out he was a slimy jerk even before we saw his collection of secret sex tapes. Silly, silly girl...



    Still entertaining, but there was something lacking about Come Together. Featuring no clear lead story, most of the episode appeared to just be a bunch of put-together scenes from a variety of different story arcs.

  • I absolutely loved this episode...

    10
    I don't know is it about Willa/Brent hookup, or Leo's dramatic leaving, or Julia's threesome, or Lucy and Holt's progress in relationship and his "you're poison" but I fall for every single minute of this episode.

    Lucy is being Lucy - as usual, she is cold and sophisticated. Willa is trying so hard to be like Lucy, but she's making her fair share of mistakes... one of them being sleeping with her boss. Maddy Sweet confessed that she killed her friend... only Maddy's greatest wish is to be on cover of the magazine. But also, she says her father forced her to cover for him. Willa has to learn the hard way that she can't help her story (source). Brent is being cheatty little scumbag as always. Don finds a new girlfriend and Lucy confirms that she is real, but Don's new girlfriend is not a big fan of Lucy or Dirt Now. She encourages Don to focus on being schizophrenic artist. Jack Dawson threatens to sue, but while Lucy and Brent keep him from doing it, Loe is overwhelmed with guilt, and he blames Lucy for everything. Holt gets help from Lucy, and he puts Julia (who started to really annoy me, and I think everyone else) in rehab. And right on time, cause little-miss-sunshine-i-returned-20-bucks just had a bi threesome, with her super hot drug dealer friend, and friends junkie friend.

    All in all, I loved this episode... even more then SLoAG. There's more Lucy/Holt time in this one, plus little less bloody worms (I hope we won't see them again).moreless
  • I think I'm too naive for this show...

    8.5
    After only a few episodes I've been saying that Lucy is a good person deep inside and that she just needs some time to come forward and leave that b*tchiness behind. But what can I say? I guess I'm too naive and way too romantic for this show. Lucy is so cold-hearted - but she got me fooled, too. I thought he was making Holt the rehab offer as a friend, but NO, she had her little evil thoughts all along... I'll just have to say goodbye to the Monica image and accept that Lucy's the devil...

    That Brent guy is a jerk, but how stupid is that Willa girl anyway? Just as naive as me, I would have fallen for the sweet talking and the pretended niceness, too... :-Dmoreless
  • The plot continues to develop and new conflict is added in Don's life.

    9.0
    I can't believe I still have a soft spot for Don but I just can't help it. I have to give the writers credit for keeping me interested in liking his character. I'm interested to see this new conflict between Lucy's influence and the waitress'. Although I'm more interested in Don's story than Lucy's these days she is still an interesting study in character with the ice maiden who is apparently looking for love. I don't think I like her and Holt but I haven't decided yet. I do know I don't like Julia. I hope that Paul Reubens remains a recurring character, he's doing a great job as the crusty but good hearted reporter helping the young and naive Willa while everyone else is exploiting her to no end. All in all this was a solid episode but no revelations that knocked me over.moreless
  • No news at all...

    9.3
    In this episode, actually nothing happened, just when you thought the series was going fine, they trip in holes like this. While Don makes no presence at all, just a non-challenging crappy photography job, Lucy does nothing, the only "good" point were the sex scenes; i'm not asking for porn but a little more credible acting, after the Willa's sex scene, i was only wanting the show to end. A little bit disappointed by the lawsuit, i thought sadly, that the lawyers would spice things up a little ... but no. I usually don't write a lot, but this one deserved it .. for worse.moreless
