Blake's plan now is to take Walter and Matthew's rig when they're in trouble. Krystle doesn't like Blake's methods in his work. She pawns an emerald necklace and loans Matthew the money to help him.

    There were several reasons why I loved this episode and why I find it better then the last few episodes. Don't get me wrong, I love this show, and I'm watching it for the very first time. First thing I love is the fact that the show is so ahead of time - there are several things that are actual during this year as well.



    The marriage between Krystle and Blake is obviously in shambles since Krystle loves Matthew as well, and that conversation between the couple, after Blake refuses to reach out to Steve, was very powerful. I love how Krystle says Blake only used her to get to Matthew. I personally didn't like Matthew at the beginning, but he's starting to grow on me. That last scene in the episode was also very great, and Krystle's last line was very great.



    The next thing I liked was the absence of Jeff, Claudia's daughter and Michael. For some reason, these characters don't really sit well with me.



    The best part of the episode was Steven. How funny was it when Walter took him to a bordello and tries to have him sleep with a woman, thinking it would cure his problems. I just knew Steven would probably end up spending time with the lady without actually doing anything.



    The next part of Steven's story was even better - having a fight with his father and being ready to give up his freedom of speech in exchange for Blake going easy on Matthew. Thankfully, Blake didn't accept it, but that lead into another great part of the episode: Fallon and Steven bonding as brother and sister. I was waiting for that scene since the beginning of the show. The chemistry between the actors was great, and its making me warm up even more to Fallon.moreless
