beadgirl May 19, 2017 Share May 19, 2017 Quote Frankly, the murder, preceded by the (extraordinarily well acted) abject terror, of the unfortunate lesbian hairdresser, at the hands of Hanzee last season, was much, much, more disturbing, to me. Me, too. She did absolutely nothing to warrant such action, nor did she even make a "mistake" like hanging out with the wrong crowd. It was wrong and ugly-to-hear that Nikki got beaten, but I'm not hugely upset by it because had she not broken a bunch of laws, ruined a marriage, and killed a guy, it likely would never have happened. Moreover, she unwisely tried to be tough with the guy. Again, she didn't deserve it, but I wasn't horrified. Quote Sy is not interested in the cash. He wants to unload the company on the Widow Goldfarb so Varga becomes her problem. I don't think they would've even considered her offer if they didn't have the Varga problem. What mystifies me is that Sy thinks this plan will work, that Varga will totally let him and Emmit walk away from this. Especially after the cup incident. (And thank you to those who paid more attention to the scene to determine that it really was tainted water Sy was forced to drink; I was cringing too much to really think about it.) Finally: I was really intrigued by Sy asking/demanding Emmit "remove the handcuffs" (or whatever metaphor he used). The later scene with Nikki's beatdown undercuts this, but I wonder if Sy's incompetence was because of the restrictions Emmit placed on his behavior, and he might turn out to be more of a match for Varga (or at least Ray and Nikki) than we've seen so far. I don't think that's what will happen, but it's interesting to contemplate. 4 Link to comment
