  • A shame

    9.0
    The story of Bought And Paid For is rather good. Gina's friend Odette is raped in Gina's apartment and she knows the perp - but soon recants and impairs Gina and the squad from vetting justice.



    They go as far as shuttling her mother in from her country and paying her off, with Odette agreeing with it. In the end, the man gets to her again, and Odette makes the ultimate sacrifice.



    Gina is distraut but when Arroyo threatens her, she is too cavalier from the performance up to that point. And the ending is too intentional to be satisfying.



    Odette's plight is a shame.



    But the other noticible thing here is how limited Saundra Santiago is as an actress. While the first season focused on her, the producers seemed to realize that Olivia Brown simply carries a drama better than Santiago, and while Gina's highlighted episodes aren't gone entirely, it is Trudy who'll start to shine and become the more endearig of the two. Santiago's near line reading at times, and her poorly placed flirtacious line near the end, were bad decisions by an average actress, and hurt a good episode.moreless
