    • The Big C - Killjoy

      This season had been the low point of the series. I enjoyed episodes 3 - 7, but episode two was terrible and this week was a little strange.

      What an amazing episode. At first Cathy makes a huge scene in the woods and points a gun at the couple who tricked her into giving her a 'non-existing' baby for $10,000. She gets them naked and lets them go with just an altercation. Laura was great in that scene, such a killer badass!!!



      Then we move onto the family issues. Paul is not that sad about them not getting a new baby to take care of but he mourns the loss of the money which is upsetting to his wife. Adam catches her 'releasing some stress' with a joint and gives her this 'parent / kid' speech about doing illegal stuff. Meanwhile Sean gets dumped by the married couple he's been dating and Andrea informs Cathy about Paul's weird and flirty relationship with Joy. Cathy gets mad and after reading an e-mail Joy sent to her husband she goes to her hotel and confronts her, they walk and talk and after making it to the street with some pretty nasty stuff being told it just happened - Joy got hit (and killed) by a bus. Then we see my beloved deceased character Marlene who steps out of the bus and tells Cathy: "Some people miss the bus, some people not so much."



      This was the best episode of the #3rd season yet and probably one of my all time favorites. Good job, writers. 10/10moreless
