MONICA'S REVIEW:
Ok, I think this one qualifies as the worst episode of the season. It was all over the place and was hard to understand what was going on and why. The one redeeming thing about this episode was the sequence where Jeremiah and Kurdy go on their mushroom trip. That had me laughing out loud! Still, there were so many things that bothered me about this episode, that it went straight to the bottom of the heap.

If you haven't seen Jeremiah yet, don't let this episode be your first exposure to the show. In fact, feel free to skip it altogether. ;) Your time would be better spent watching The Long Road (Part 1) or Firewall instead.

There was a nod to the arc when Jeremiah and Kurdy talked about the reward that Theo gave them for saving her life. It was an awfully elaborate (and expensive?) scheme for her to set up ... especially since it didn't work. Surely, there must be easier ways to kill or maim Jeremiah? I just didn't understand how the whole thing was supposed to work, but I assume the ladies were in on it to begin with if it was all a set up. So, after spending one night with Jeremiah and Kurdy, they change their mind and end up helping them instead? How else was Desault going to get Jeremiah in the ring? Pah.

Also, the fact that Polly thought she could just waltz back into her daughter's life really bugged me. I understood Gregory's anger and caution that he took when he saw Polly again. I also noticed how convenient it was that Gregory never asked where she was all this time and that she never volunteered it. That would be the first thing I would ask! I think she pushed too hard with China and really was being selfish. As much as I like happy endings, I didn't find this one believable at all. Instead, it just left a bad taste in my mouth.

THEO RATING: 4

QUESTIONS RAISED:

  • Why does "saving Theo's life come at a price"? Is she really that much of a bitch or does she simply not want to owe them for anything?
  • Why can't the ladies of the Lithia Inn ever leave? What is stopping them?
  • Why didn't Jeremiah find out about the odds of fighting before agreeing to fight for Polly?
  • For that matter, why didn't Jeremiah question Polly's intentions and motivations for reuniting with her daughter -before- he agreed to fight for her?
  • Jeremiah is still narrating letters to his father, but is he still burning them?
