A day late in posting this week’s reactions/recap post.. it seems Toronto might have been stuck in a dome on Monday when we had a crazy rainstorm (the most rain in one day on record) that caused flooding and power outages. So, finally got caught up with TV now that the power’s back on. Like with the past two episodes, this is a recap/reactions post that’s spoilery but I will try to make it entertainingly so. 🙂
Okay, I know there are a lot of nicknames. I actually feel weird when I have a few people that I haven’t nicknamed.. but here’s a brief recap of a few of the main ones!
- CBB (Cool Bad Boy – formerly known as Hottie Bad Boy) = Barbie
- HEC (Human Edward Cullen) = Junior
- DJJ (Douchey Journalist Julia)
- BB (Brilliant Brother) = Joe
So Brilliant Brother and Skateboard Friend (SF) are hanging out by the skate park when Moody Teen comes up to them and wants to charge her phone at BB’s place because he has a generator. He asks about Mom #1 and #2 and MT denounces knowing her parents and tells BB she’s never seen them before. Also, she wants to crash at his place. You can practically see SF’s eyes pop out of his head at this point.
Rogue Cop is arrested and pulls the oldest trick in the book while in a jail cell, feigns coughing and Kickass Linda goes in to check on him only to be trapped in there herself now. That might kick you down a notch from being kickass, Linda… Big Jim comes by to let her out and he tries to take over, and Linda doesn’t let him. Her kickassness is back up a notch again.
HEC’s face is all beaten up and his dad Big Jim sees it. He tells him CBB did it to him. Also, Big Jim is the most awkward dad ever. The way he cupped his hand on HEC’s face was SO AWKWARD. You can almost hear the director say to him “Okay, move your hand like this, and cup it at a 30 degree angle and hold it there. Be fatherly and gentle.”
Hmm. For being locked up in the bunker for two days, Angie 1) still looks relatively good, 2) hasn’t had to pee and 3) has so much energy still. She convinces HEC that they should try and go under the dome in the closed-off tunnels from an old cement factory. CBB is chatting with DJJ and spots the guy radio DJ, immediately turning around and walking off. Suspicious. CBB does realize that he’s hanging out a lot with a nosy journalist, right? She’s going to catch onto your questionable reactions.
Mom #1 asking some old guys at the restaurant whether they’ve seen Moody Teen. Old guy #1 makes some pretty ignorant comments about their same-sex relationship having a kid. Owner of the restaurant is always going to be the aunt of Sabrina the Teenage Witch! Big Jim asks for help in a search party for Rogue Cop and the two ignoramuses volunteer. He stage-whispers what RC ran off with, while CBB is sitting right next to them, eavesdropping. Big Jim introduces himself to CBB, eying his cuts and bruises – assumingly from HEC’s face. The search party are on the hunt and the locals are about to head off in one direction when CBB points out that it’s a dummy trail. RC, with military training, wouldn’t make a trail so obvious. Instead, this guy’s apparent military training still smashed down enough grass and sticks for CBB to notice though. Nothing gets passed CBB.
“My family doesn’t have a genny.”
Oh GOD. These teens have shortened the word for “generator” in 2 days?? >_<
Search party tracks down RC and of course Ignoramus #2 gets shot right away. Ig#1 stays with him and CBB and Big Jim head off on their own.
DJJ follows HEC head underground to try and get under the dome until HEC literally facepalms facewalls right into it. He loses what’s left of his mind and screams at the dome, pounding on it . HEC plants his psycho-seeds-of-suspicion with DJJ now too, that CBB did that to his face.
Skateboard Friend has invited everybody over to Brilliant Bro’s place to party/charge up/use the “genny”. SF tells BB he might get a girlfriend out of this but not to tell her about his freaky seizure. And yet, the only other person who has had the same seizure is that girl. Douchey Douchebag shows up, brings bear and taunts BB that he used to date his sister (Angie). DDB tries to charge for use of BB’s extension cord and gets into a confrontation with BB and MT. Of course, with all the things plugged in, the power pops and goes out. Kickass Linda saves the day while those two guys are chatting when they should be hunting down RC. She shoots him, thereby saving the guys and gets named new Sheriff.
Wow, Reverend Idiot seems to be doing just fine already. He must have called on the church healing powers to fully heal him after a day of almost being burned alive. Yep, just pat him on the arm Big Jim. Pat him where he probably had 3rd degree burns.
And why is Mom #1 the only one that’s around this episode looking for Moody Teen? Where is Mom #2?? MT thanks BB, grabs his hand and some energy flows through them that they both start seizing, in the same position and mumbling the same bizarre phrase.
Okay, and biggest mistake. CBB.. you’re slipping, dude. Do you not sense that DJJ is being really suspicious of you?? When she’s questioning him on why he’s here, if he’s not from Chester’s Mill he insists that he was just passing through. So he puts something away in his bag on the bed, squeezes by her, and as she’s still standing in his room’s doorway, goes to shower. She, of course, goes right to his bag with what he put in there and sees a map of Chester’s Mill with a location marked off. DUDE. BE BETTER AT THIS BAD BOY THING!!!
If last week’s running theme was idiots, this week’s would be all the weird moments of one-on-one, heart-to-heart talks in this episode. DJJ uses her last match to chat with HEC in the dark. Big Jim and CBB have a chat about Big Jim being mocked when he was young, really weird awkward mimicry moments while they’ve got rifles in their hand and hunting down RC. Great ideas guys. Great timing to talk about feelings.
