"The Cape." I'm sorry, I didn't hate the episode. I just didn't get large parts of it.
Orwell was confusing but I expected her to be. And I was surprised when the Cape didn't. As she told him, she'd been married against her will and left for dead. Yeah, that was last week and it would take a toll. At the very end, she's in bed and on the phone with him. He's telling her he's got big info and she's dejected. He asks if she's okay and she says yes. Then we see someone has destroyed her bedroom.
Okay, that phone call? What does Cape have that's so big?
I have no idea and I watched the episode twice. What am I missing?
Elliot Gould is a friend of the villian. And the villain has a split-personality. And Elliot's letting both think he's on their side. Is that confusing? I thought it was.
Then there was a subplot about injury in the carnival. And there was an opening scene where Cape's wife and son were involved. But we didn't get a follow up. The whole thing was probably advancing storylines and that will be obvious in 3 or 4 episodes; however, in terms of this week, I just didn't think it worked.
Do you ever buy DVDs at pawn shops? I went with a friend to pawn something and we're picking it back up tomorrow. The pawn shop had some films I'd like to have on DVD. You can get three for $10. My pick of three? Michelle Pfeiffer's "Married To The Mob," the Cher double treat of "Moonstruck" and "Mermaids" on the same disc and Mark Wahlberg and everyone in that caper film I like but can never remember the name of.
I'm thinking of grabbing the three when we pick up my friend's stuff tomorrow.
