  • 1 for Donnie, 0 for Mrs S, poor vic the dick!

    Donnie, Allison and Vic are TV gold. Yes Donnie stepped-up but Vic's downward spiral is priceless. Michael Mando plays this character flawlessly. I loved when he winced to himself 'I hate this garage'. His attempt at redemption and playing a reformed twelve-stepped 'recovering' addict is spot-on. Mrs. S on the other hand, falling for such a basic trick is irksome; allowing Rechel to snatch Kira right from under her nose. Hmmm, whose side is she on? Is Mrs S swanman? Or at least swanman adjacent. I'm relieved to see the show is back on track. Helena burning down Johansen's farm was cool. She has now orphaned all the children. This subplot has left me wondering what happened to the children on the farm. Marc taking off with Gracie brilliant! I knew I liked him, even though he did shoot that nice restaurant owner in the head. He can be a cold-blooded bad ass; or an in love knight in shining armor puppy I guess everyone's got their good and bad sides.moreless
