  • Dull episode

    This episode is certainly one of the weakest so far of Season Two. Leilani would only appeal to those who like older women and there was only Shani Pride for the rest of the guys to watch on screen.

    The episode was mostly dull with one good plot twist at the end. Surprising casting with Chris Mulkey, a known character actor in this episode.

    Best part of the episode was the opening scene in the strip club.moreless

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Lilith: Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned, especially when that woman is about to be replaced by a younger, deadlier version of herself. And for all the Botox, liposuction, and skin treatments a desperate housewife could buy, money cannot turn back the clock. It is the inevitable, inexorable passage of time that changes the rules. So now, Veronica's playing a new game, a game of survival, a game I call "Trophy Wife".

    • Darby: I'm sure you have plenty of resources, why come to me?
      Veronica: I googled "Dirty Ex-Cops" and your name came up. You really have quite the resume, don't you. Indicted twice for manslaughter, got off the first time on a technicality and the second time when the witness mysteriously disappeared. Interesting hobbies: Drinking, Gambling, Borrowing money from Unsavory people.
      Darby: Too bad Paul Newman's dead, he could play me in the movie.

    • Lilith: Well, it looks like some scorned women aren't that furious after all. This one's for the first wives, for those women with the experience and the imagination younger women cannot even begin to know. For those women who know that sexual attraction isn't only to be found in firm, supple, young breasts, smooth legs and perfectly sculpted bodies, but in the mind, in the psyche, in the darkest depths of your soul. As for Veronica and Gil, it really is one of nature's majestic wonders that two people, unique in their romantic depravity, have found one another, because after all, even psychopaths need love.
