Road Trip



I liked the idea of Vincent on a road trip with his two goons and then having to 'rough it' once their car breaks down. But it was the torture scene of Deputy Jack Lamb at the hands of Rizzo that had the biggest impact on the show, especially when Jack shoots and kills Mia's father. This is going to have major consequences for sure.

The Third Man



Now I see how the writers went about crafting their little arc and it's perfect too. When the show first started, I often wondered which of the Lamb's would fall prey to Vincent and now we know. Now that Jack is going out of his way to keep the news from Mia that he shot and killed her father and tampering with evidence to his involvement, this gives Vincent the pressure he has been looking for to basically have a cop in his back pocket. It's just a question of how far down the rabbit hole will Jack go to keep his secret...a secret.

Two Of A Kind



A couple of surprising things went down in this one. For one, I didn't think Jack would confess to Mia...or anyone for that matter so soon. I figured that they would milk if for all it's worth with Vincent putting the screws to him. Didn't happen. The other thing that was surprising was seeing Ralph destroying evidence to protect Jack's involvement in the killing. One fun fact was the addition of Shawn Doyle. Fans of Dennis Quaid's underrated Frequency will recognized him as the Nightingale Serial Killer.

I forgot to add Episode 15 and that was 2 months ago. I can't remember anything about that one. So, no review. Sue me.

Little Fish



Nice for the series to return. It took them long enough. Sheesh! Looks like Mia is starting to take after her father. But then again, anyone that is threaten with with prison time will respond in kind when they find out that rat that's gonna send them up the creek. Looks like they are finally giving Yvonne (Aimee Garcia) something of a story line that isn't just file papers for the Sheriff. Looks like they are setting her up to be a singer. First stop.....Hollywood.

Hollywood Ending



I liked that this episode and story was split between Vegas and Hollywood. Who doesn't love Hollywood stuff? I had been banging my head trying to place the actress that plays Violet and it finally hit me that it was Anna Camp, who I know primarily from The Mindy Project. I had heard she asked out of that show and my guess its because she wanted to come onto Vegas full time. She was downgraded to a recurring character and TMP, so it remains to be seen how much face time she will get on Vegas.

The other cool thing about this episode in particular saw Melinda Clarke joining the ranks as Mia's presumed-dead mother. I didn't even know that she was coming on Vegas, especially since she already has a gig as Amanda on Nikita. Hey, I won't object to seeing her more on both shows and that's a GOOD thing.

Scoundrels



Easily my favorite episode so far this season. It had both intrigued and humor. With Dixon Lamb being set up by his former girlfriend Violet, he is looking at going away to prison for assault and battery. Sure, we all know he is innocent and that she is being forced to lie out of fear and self preservation with Silver pulling the strings. The fun of the episode was watching Ralph track down the leads necessary to prove his son's innocence. They may have come to resolution by getting Violet to recant her statement, but I have a feeling we will be seeing a lot more of Silver in the future as he tries to take down the Lamb Family...one by one.

Past Lives




I'm not particularly a fan of Michael Ironside, but I think he may finally have found a role that I think he could be good in. As a rival to Vincent, it's clearly going to escalate into some kind of turf war between the two and he looks like a credible threat as well. As for FBI Agent Byrne, I am not surprised at all that one of the people that he detained to "shake down" would end up shooting him. I've been wanting someone to do just that since he arrived on the show, especially after this episode. This is a knock against the actor that plays him, it's a compliment in the character he plays because he is so good at being "bad". A show is only as good as the "villain". He's not really a villain because all he is doing is following the law, at the expense of innocent people, just to get his man....or in this episode....woman.
