  1. Yeah I don't think he's lying he seemed genuinely torn up by having left Alonzo behind, but I do think that part of his being torn up is that he hasn't come to grips with is that the party was full of racists, that he didn't notice cause PRIVILEGE, which even the other guy said he knew and I suspect is why he bugged out, he said the whole hick country music shitkicker party wasn't their groups scene. My niece was left by a huge group of friends in a college town of a college she didn't go to while wasted drunk, she got beat up, and I was hella HELLA pissed but only at the one friend I felt shouldn't have passed the buck to other less loyal friends to "watch" her at the bar. I do wonder why Justin didn't speak directly to Adam, telephone isn't a great way to make sure your black friend in a Sundown Town makes it out alive. Having said that I suspect whoever snatched Alonzo did so before Adam/this other guy left. But when you are drunk you want to do literally the easiest thing and the easiest thing was tell yourself he found a way home with someone else.
  2. I can believe the smell was relatively contained it was a crawl space under the back porch and they were well wrapped up. The show made it seems like the dog bowls and no dogs is what made them look under those bowls. Not to say it was shoddy police work to have not noticed until six days later, it's weird that their search wasn't thorough until the sixth time they looked.
  3. This was my theory to a T and I have to wonder why it wasn't even addressed in show, like did the cops think of it, investigate and dismiss it? But I also don't know why they would break both his legs, seems like a torture move and they were trying to get something out of him rather than just you shut him up about whatever they think he might have known. He was shooting video for the company too could be they thought he had hard evidence that could come back to haunt them so beat the shit out of him to make sure he did/didn't, before they dropped him out of the helicopter. I think the ME did say the other injuries were consistent with a big fall at high velocity, plus it wouldn't have had to be super high to have created enough velocity for him to go through the roof. I think this scenario is a lot of coincidences he just happens to jump onto the roof with a hole to a room no one uses attached to a building where he works? But it would be useful to know if they explored/dismissed the helicopter option because witnesses missing THAT aurally or visually would be pretty crazy. I'd also point out the Baltimore cops are corrupt AF and that Rey's death intersected with a very wealthy and connected guy in his friend would definitely lead me to believe it was murder v. robbery/suicide.
  4. I will literally in all my life never get how these bitches thought this was an adult party when there was a table full of children like 10 feet away, and 2 of them were Teddi's so that means when Denise invited people she INCLUDED KIDS, therefore it is NOT an adult party, it is family type event and maybe adjust your conversation accordingly. She had every right to flip the fuck out on these women for not STFU when she asked nicely. THREE TIMES. They totally don't know what "hypocrite" means and are ignoring that she had two other children there who were there and maybe their parents wouldn't like it and they weren't married to Charlie Sheen for them to justify it. I used to kind of be with Rinna on her Own It schtick, but she rarely owns it herself and it really is clear how habitually she screws "friends" over to feed a storyline, Denise and hell poor Sutton didn't even get a season to acclimate before Rinna came at her over nothing. Why IS Dorrit. I kind of like laughing at helpless secretly manipulative Teddi.
  5. Ah I didn't know there are only four episodes. Watched the first two, but also had listened to his podcast about Indian food so it covered some of the same ground. Wish he'd talked to Priya more about Indian food. I make her Pav Bahji all the time and it's super easy and so good and major comfort food. I really loved when Change was trying to insist his niece make her imaginary muffins 'the right way' and she first ignored him and when he kept on with it flipped the table over like a Real Housewife. Right on girly, also David they are IMAGINARY MUFFINS. I also liked his sister saying she at the seafood soup once and then faked it for the rest of the time. Heh.
  6. I think the informant has to be Frank Columbo/the brother because he's admitted to all kinds of crimes (destroying evidence) and knowledge of crimes by his brother and I assume the mob generally, but somehow wasn't caught up in the arrests. They mentioned the custody dispute with Robin and maybe he and his wife held off for a few years until they knew for sure winning custody of Frankie was never going to happen. I quite like him though so I'm fine with that. I get that they are stringing along how he got the damn winning tickets, because the FBI themselves didn't ever really figure out so much as get told after the fact, but its SUPER fucking annoying. I also thought they doc wasn't playing fair when it made it seem like the printing place had nothing to do with it. Someone there had to be the one that passed it along to Jerry at the point when the truck arrived and all three Simon reps had to be there. He's probably my favorite of the criminals, when he told the story about how the People magazine winner/guy was "the most generous person you'd ever meet' and in the same breath says he dealt a lot of drugs and that's how they met I was like LOL generous and drug dealer are not two things that go together.
  7. Oh no I've been hating on that new narration, but love Camp's acting. I don't think Howard will die, they are trying to save the day with Seale/Claude. I do think Seale/Claude might die together or even sacrifice themselves (at least Claude especially Cuco kills Seale) if only to semi satiate El Cuco's need to decimate it's target thoroughly and maybe spare an actual child from being killed.
  8. I've been pretty forgiving to this show, but 34 people dying in a cave in 80 years ago isn't going to fade from historical memory, especially in the south FFS. You have to be 90 something or related to the dead people to remember this kind of disaster? NO. Otherwise what a great fucking episode, the tension building between the flashback and the current story line. I am so sad about Pelley but would be WAY WAY sadder if Andy is one of the dead. DO NOT KILL OFF ANDY. Much rather Yunis bites it. I also wonder though if no one else got shot, I feel like they've been building toward Jack fighting his overlord and I think it's interesting we saw him have Ralph in his sites but he seemed to pick Pelley instead, someone he had less of a relationship with. He might also realize Ralph/Holly getting El Cuco might be his only hope for release. Ah yes I liked the fried chicken side bar it really does bring you closer to God. If they want to keep this as a series going forward beyond this initial one I'd love for it to focus on Holly/Andy as a crime solving couple AWKWARD THIN MAN.
  9. Holly has stated repeatedly that she believes the creature is vulnerable while it is transforming, none of them are aware of any evidence that led them to believe it's eating animals/people along the way OR that Jack/minions are procuring them for the entire 24-27 day cycle. Ironically she thinks they do procure the children and yet with Not Claude we saw the opposite Jack procures the meat along the way, and El Cuco personally hunted his own damn child snack. I do agree their doing a poor job showing how these fine distinctions work and that their plan was janky but I'm not sure what plan is a good plan when dealing with a supernatural creature you can barely understand. I think part of it is that they still want to "prove" this in real documented terms rather than just "stop it" like Yunis said he wanted to last week. It sesm hard for them to let that piece go. Also they are obviously all scared shitless of what they don't know/understand.
  10. Yeah someone mentioned that Ariana brought it up initially, and I can see them deciding since it WAS NOT for the camera drama, that one of them should say something for them BOTH and since she's the one who is gay it might penetrate more coming from her, Jaxny might be less defensive and reactive. My guess is they were dismissive and reactive and Ariana told Tom they should let it lie. I also think this is why Tom was bringing it up now, because Ariana had and they didn't give a fuck, LVP does and suddenly Lance Bass is marrying them. I think it's legitimate for him to care/to wonder if their motivation was actually because they care about their gay friends and the gay community they work in, or if they just did what their boss told them too so they could ALL keep making money off that community. I also have to wonder if they were explicitly told not to address it until filming where it would be resolved one way or another by LVP decree. Now it doesn't make Tom any less stupid for stirring the shit after it had more or less BEEN resolved but the man has weird hills to die on and he dies on them weirdly. He can find a way to be wrong even when he's right more or less.
  11. Which is why I'm an agnostic rather than an atheist. Like man I just don't KNOW you know? I think Ralph's problem is instead of saying this IS happening even if I don't understand how, he's saying this can't be happening because I don't understand it.
  12. Given that when I'm terrified I feel like my senses are on 11 and Half I can believe that she was super tuned into listening top the door for him, and she figured that if she took a long time he'd investigate.
  13. There are ten episodes so three left. I love Andy/Holly. I love the way he gets her, that she has re-ignited something for him in terms of the work. I hope there's no shoe that drops there. Holly's empathy for the Renfields is so moving, even as the experience haunts her nightmares. I'm glad we got to see some vulnerable layers to Jack. I think the only thing I didn't get was that we were meant to think the drawings looked like Claude? REALLY? That was for sure a beat they didn't hit very hard, I mean we knew he was transforming into him, but his face was way too jacked up to make anything out. Huh.
  14. I keep forgetting Paddy Considine's characters name too, it's Claude, Claude IS the manager but he's on probation so can't be assaulting people in club, manager or no (thought it's weird they let a guy on probation manage a place that serves liquor since I'd guess that compromises their license). I DO think he knows he was scratched by Terry and that something weird is happening to him, but isn't sure what and really how could he ever guess. I don't know where he's going at the end, but you'd think he'd go to Ralph, since he held back the info about Terry scratching him, he may want to fess up now that he's feeling freaked out.
  15. It actually would make sense to me that someone who is struggling to solve a crime in the "i need to know" rather than a I want to close this case sense is open to something supernatural being at work it would mean they aren't bad detectives just up against something that can't be formally "caught". If you sincerely want to stop further child murders than go with it even if it might be crazy (and indeed I think this is why cops will indulge psychics when they've a had a case go really cold). In this case Glory and her lawyer are funding it so he doesn't even have to sweat the wasted finite resources aspect. I felt so much anxiety when Holy realized she's in the middle of nowhere with a jerk controlled by a child killing monster. I think Glory was angry about Holly explanation as it wouldn't clear Terry's name, and that's been her angle exonerating him PUBLICLY so her kids and her community will stop giving her a hard time. I think it makes a lot of sense that at some point she would doubt Terry's innocence, I'm just surprised it wasn't sooner. Eh these are completely different jurisdictions this is something that is used by serial offenders to avoid discovery all the time, like the Rapist in Unbelievable and of course the Golden State Killer wasn't really ever formally connected to his earlier Visalia Ransaker crimes until they just caught him in 2018. And I don't think we know if the monster is replicating a particular MO.
