  2. That would mean having to tell Victor (if he doesn't know already) that Atonal Adam killed a guy in Vegas just to watch him die ... and save Chance' life, hide the body, conspire to keep it secret, not report it to the police, pay off Dead Vegas Guy's Wife to keep her quiet, and Atonal's running out of ways to sidetrack Alyssa from investigating Vegas Guy's murder.. That's a lot of criminal information to hand over to The Prince of Darkness.

Victoria is using a factual, evidentiary hammer; exposing his criminality, without emotional chest-pounding, which might be the key to ending his plague on their lives.

  11. I like Victoria wielding a hammer. It works for me. NotBilly will fail in his quest to destroy Atonal, but Victoria might rise above that challenge. It's all in how she plays Victor. Why is she costumed so badly, making her look less like the fashion designer than she's already been shown to be? Chelsea's better off not knowing the specifics of Atonal's been doing. Not being married, she could be forced to testify against him in court, or lose custody of Connor to the tender mercies of the Newman's. I expected Atonal to deal with their most immediate threat (the pharmacist), and leave diddling Alyssa for next week. Adam is a fool, threatening a former-FBI agent, but he always thinks he's 10 steps ahead of everyone, but has proven to be a consistent loser in all his nefarious endeavors. He ends up grousing and grumbling, blaming others for not falling for his scathingly brilliant plans. <snore> Most infantile, boring and transparent villain on Show. They were very good together. I hated it when Nicki played the Neil Card. That was low, considering all the grief he took working for Victor and Newman Enterprises. Someone is stepping up for some of the episodes; the writing, direction and staging is better. It's not consistent, but it holds interest. Alyvia Alyn Lind is at that age where young girls grow quickly. It's a shame TIIC don't use her more frequently on Show (they might not be able to afford her). She's very talented, and can work with meatier subject matter. It's as if we're watching Show through a key hole. Crowd noises, but no people. Situations happening off-camera. All scenes happening on very few sets. Show seems small, blinkered and the story-telling myopic.
  12. It does matter to Abby that Chance was an accessory after the fact for 2nd/3rd degree murder, and didn't call the police or file an accurate report with the FBI, conspired with Atonal Adam to dispose of the the body, cover up the crime and pay off Dead Vegas Guy's wife. Being Atonal is a mentally unbalanced, violent, reactive and unreliable conspirator to be in league with, Abby has a lot more to worry about than Chance owing his life to Atonal -- This is not a good bargaining position to be in. Strategizing for more Atonal-natured crimes to drop is the only way to stay even with AA. It was interesting but not overly substantive; their dialog confirmed what the viewer already knew. It did expose the talent-gap on Show, but that's not a feel good. It would be great if TIIC would have her go to a meeting with her support group, but that's too much to ask, along with Sharon looking a little less the aging ingénue fresh from the Botox salon. Melody Thomas Scott glows in rich, saturated colors like navy blue. Her hair was lustrous and life-like. Fabulous! And drawing as much attention as possible to the confidential subject they're bellowing about? TIIC doesn't have the production budget for non-descript office staging with all the specious business meetings TIIC incorporate into episodes. Phyllis is supposed to be living in an exclusive suite (custom-built for her) at The Phoenix; integrating office furnishings to her mediocre set would be simple, but instead she arranges 'Escapes' and and handles hotel business sitting next to a pink pool table in the lobby of her La-di-da hotel. Very rude and presumptuous on Nicki's part, but she's not wrong stating Victor would carpet bomb Chance Com if they published a real/imagined exposé damning Atonal Adam's many criminal acts. Victor will fight to the death to defend his favorite felonious son. Victor is the only person with buckets of money to throw at the tire fire that is Atonal. Sharon will throw her body on top of Atonal -- smoldering or, in this case, not. Unfortunate and humiliating havving Lily told about NotBilly's revenge plans by someone outside of Chance Com. NotBilly's failure to be open and straightforward about his projects has got to burn. Being lied to why he didn't tell her about his Atonal project, and the litany of on-the-fly excuses will be the Same Old NotBilly. Lily disemboweling him should be amusing, but it won't stop his vendetta. Victoria volunteered her services to NotBilly and she's going to hang with the rest of the Newman's for protecting the Newman name over Atonal Adam's felonies. <shrug> TIIC have been telegraphing doom, gloom and despair since Spider was located in Las Vegas. I don't think Abby realized their relationship had progressed to Chance talking about a settled-down future with her. It seemed to surprise Chance as well. A redux of Abby's suburban dream might be one set piece too far for TIIC.

  14. Phyllis suddenly turning into Switzerland to negotiate a truce post flossing her teeth after chewing the scenery was an unconventional 180° for the Red Menace. Phyllis usually fights to the end and then buckles, but this sing-song rationalizing made Dumber idiotically happy, while Nick dug in his heels deeper. We Were No Different, So Go Along to Get Along, and We'll Pick Up the Pieces Later didn't cut it with him. I can't blame Nick, being he knows too well the result of investing in another relationship before the divorce. Between Nick's recalcitrance, and Lola dropping Theo like a greasy rock and regretting her impending divorce to Kyle , I expect there will be trouble brewing for Dumber's 'perfect' love life. Hillary 2.0 is being written like she cracked out of the egg yesterday, and knows nothing about common research protocols. It's ridiculous for her to go to NotBilly for private investigator assistance, or any other assistance. He's too stupid to get out of his own way, and she knows he's after her ... and not for friendship or legal advice. Meh. Dr. Natey Nate Nate is a waste. Not much of an actor, and the character has become a tedious, self-righteous pot-stirrer. Con can go ply his Newman trade at the cloistered St. Mallory's, and the best of luck to him. Connor's going to have the snot pummeled out of him. Parochial school has an ruthless way of winnowing out the treacherous, unnatural and underhanded. Very little escapes the religious spy system. Chelsea, Atonal Adam and NotBilly all think they are out-foxing the others. Chelsea got caught skulking in Lilly's office while planting her bug. Atonal, while arguing with NotBilly alluded to knowing all of NotBilly's plans. But NotBilly wins the Grand Prize for Idiocy, by jumping to conclusions thinking Atonal had gotten rid of Alyssa -- She told NotBilly she was going to Las Vegas, he forgot and in confronting Atonal essentially told him all his plans to publish a rabid revenge exposé on all of Atonal Adam's hangnails and dead bodies. Nick is hopelessly embroiled in Dumber's sex life as a multi-divorced slapper -- Not a good position for a father. No one can't stop Dumber from deluding herself over why faithless Kyle married her for a piece of liver for Lola, divorced her to marry Lola, and came back to Dumber for the same romantic nonsense he spouted the first time. I'm not sure helium will help. Show is crap on a cracker.
