  • Provenza: "You know why I hate porn? Guy delivers pizza, it never gets eaten. Girl's refrigerator breaks down, it never gets fixed." Buzz: "Yeah, that's real unsatisfying."

    The whole HIV fiasco with Chris Mundy really had me confused. He has HIV, he doesn't have HIV; he's positive, he's negative. I was starting to come to the conclusion that they had the wrong body. I don't know why I didn't think about the clinic lying about Chris's results, being paid by the porn company owner.

    This brings me to Morgan bloom. I found her the most despicable out of all the people we've seen this season. All she cared about was her company and money. She hired the Brazilian ladies because their cheap; she paid the clinic to lie about Chris's HIV status because he earned such good money for her company. By lying about Chris's status, she basically signed of the lives of both Chris and thirteen other women. More women could have even become infected if Chris hadn't found out when he did. Morgan even sold out her own son in an effort to keep eyes off her and her company. She really was a low life and I felt no sympathy when she was faced with a life sentence.

    I found it very interesting that Brenda went to Pope with her pregnancy scare. I thought it was a little unfair of Brenda, knowing how much Pope likes her and how's he's trying to distant himself away from her since her brush off a few weeks back. I could see chemistry between the two for the first time today though. Both actors did a great job with that scene, and when looked at closer you can see many little subtleties that were present.

    On a lighter note, I loved the conversation about porn names Brenda and Gabriel had in the morgue with Terrence (who I find a lot more interesting and funny then coroner Uncle Phil; Terrence deserves more screen time). I had never heard about combining your first pet with the first street you lived on to derive your theoretical porn name. Gabriele revealed his was Light Saver Central, while Brenda started saying "Lucky...” but then stopped suddenly (I wonder why she stopped? I'm guessing her street sounded bad coming off of Lucky.) Mine by the way would be Bailey Simpson. Pretty exciting, huh?

    This was a really fun episode that successfully mixed a dark crime with fun light hearted humor. Bravo

    Final Notes and Quotes

    - Terrence (holding out a male hand): "I checked the inventory and this was all we had on hand." Was that pun intentional?

    - I found it bizarre that a mother and son would run a porn business together.

    - The opening scene was fun. With a crime coming to Brenda and Gabriel on a peaceful breakfast outing, Brenda falling in the trash, and Gabriel missing a bite from his French toast :)

    - I laughed when Sanchez recognized the victim from a porn video, and then again when the whole crew sat down to watch it.

    - Daniel's and Gabriel are now officially dating. There was a nice subtle awkwardness between the two of them and Brenda in the office today, now that Brenda knows.

    Final Rating: 3 out of 4 stars.
