  • Carls getting sloppy and ferral.

    WoW for someone claiming that Benji was her soulmate, Roberta didnt greive very long for his death did she. It looked like being about a week before things were back to normal in her life. Right after Carl yelled at her for rubbing her and Benji's affair in his face she was back to normal. I think she knew if she carried on anymore that Carl would cut her from what ever allowance that he gave her.



    I dont know if Lewis Moran new his time had come to die or he thought they wouldnt get an old bugger like him. He was still going out and drinking with his buddies without a care. I think he just gave up in the end.



    Lewis Caine wanted to avenge Benji's death so bad that it ended up getting him killed. So much anger that it looked like he forgot to watch his own back.



    I really felt for Zarah, she so much wanted to have a baby with Lewis Caine but he didnt seem to want one with her because he knew that he wouldnt be a good dad. Zarah even went to great measures of wanting sperm from him after he was killed. His family is fighting her today to stop her from taking it. Poor girl, all she wants is to be happy.



    Was Carl being careless in calling Zarah after Lewis Caine's death or was he being a true friend. And I wonder if Benji's family got a call from Carl after Benji was murdered.



    29 is the body count so far I didnt think it was this high.



    This episode didnt have me sitting on the edge of my seat like previous episodes but it was a good one. The last one is only a week away. I hope there arent too many questions left to be answered.moreless
