  • A pretty great episode, all together different than anything on MSCL up until that point. Actually had me at the edge of my seat.

    ***This review may contian mild spoilers***

    I am so conflicted about the last five minutes of this episode. When Patty looks at the girl and asks her those three questions (I'm trying to avoid huge spoilers) and the bomb is dropped about her fate, the tone of the show goes in a completley new direction (one they flirted with in the Halloween episode). I understand that they were trying to tackle tough subject matter and wanted to really make an emotional impact, and i can't deny that the exchange between Patty and the Homeless girl has stuck with me, the tonal change beginning with Rickie bleeding in the snow at the start of the episode in place of the theme song is jarring, and while it's in my top 5 eps its part of the reason we only got 19 episodes.
