What Happened This Week?
Alan Grey died. Turtle officially became Drama's assistant, then unofficially quit. Dom made a return, only to reveal to Vince and Eric that he now has a child.The Funniest Line?
I'd love to say there was only one that truly won me over, but there was not. Instead, there were several. Hear a few: "Is that something you might be interested in?" "Miss it, you scumbag!" and last, but certainly not least, "Think positive thoughts, Alan!"What Made This Episode?
A conglomeration of fantastic writing, wonderful direction and some nice acting. The fact that Alan Grey is now dead - and may possibly be replaced by Ari Gold next week - is a little troubling, but we've approached the halfway mark and the twist has been revealed.Moment of Surprise?
Obviously Alan dying. He could have easily been kept alive, then only to realize that life is too short to hold a grudge and make life easy for Vince again. But life doesn't work that way and it's another unfortunate life lesson for Vince.Gripes?
Does God hate me? If he doesn't, why would he let me write "Where's Charlie?" when this week when he, too, made a return. That has to be proof.Craziest Cameo?
Phil Mickelson! Who would've thought he would have been that
I've been against his return for quite some time, but… It wasn't bad. It wasn't. When the DVD is released, I won't watch this episode with any dismay. Dom was successfully brought back and managed to make an impact on the show. A true hats off to Doug Ellin and his fabulous writing team.Overall Opinion?
Could have been spectacular -- and in a mediocre way, it was -- but I'll settle for "fantastically funny".Next Week:
What's there to say that isn't already being chatted about all over the internet? Alan is permanently dead and Ari is offered a chance to take his position. Then, Vince is now a model-for-hire and develops a liking for another woman. Crazy times.
I'd also like to add that I haven't a fucking
clue where this season is headed.
