Except to "become" Perry Mason, Strickham has to be replaced by Drake...
I guess my lack of knowledge of the real Perry Mason story is in play here...
I was pleasantly surprised in their diversity push that Burger is gay, I had thought it funny he was hitting on Della so poorly but after the waiter and fiancee crack their discussion was pretty nice.
Well, I never watched the original Perry Mason. But even I know who Paul Drake and Della Street are!
Did I miss something? Was it ever revealed what that guy was digging up next to the scarecrow?
I think that was her plan (Sister Alice's mother, not Sister Alice), but it was a desperate plan that buys them a little time, maybe. I'm not sure about the casket. It's not clear if Alice's mother arranged to have the casket robbed, or how else that might have happened. I guess not a whole lot of time has passed since the burial, so it might not be obvious that the grave had been dug up again recently.
That was the source of all the accounting books in the courtroom that Hazel brought in.
It's been about 3 months. The funeral was shortly after the New Year and this week's episode was Easter Sunday (which, in 1932 was March 27).
The empty casket was definitely Mother. She is something else for sure.
No idea what the idea was with the baby. Also, where did she get him?!?! Did she imagine that people would just forget about a baby supposedly raised from the dead and she could quietly give him back to his parents?
Can't wait for the finale!
Where's the real Charlie? I assume the "resurrected" Charlie was an orphan or some baby the mother bought.
The mother was a sympathetic and sane character until they demonized her in the out-of-gas flashback.
I wasn't sure I was going to stick with this show after the first couple of episodes. Now I'm glad I did. I wonder, if it had been a more traditional episode count, if there would have been more slow, uneventful episodes in the beginning. I'm not sure I would have lasted in that case.
One thing is for sure, Sister Alice's mom has been manipulating her from a very young age. I am so sad for her. She really believed she healed that guy in the wheelchair and confronted with his "unhealing", she was dumbfounded. Tatiana is such a great actress. I'm really enjoying her in this role.
I'm very excited to see how they wrap this up.
Shea Whigham is one those B actors that is great in just about everything I've seen him in. I remember him as Nucky's brother on Boardwalk Empire.
I don't know if it's the costuming, makeup or just plain good acting skills but he looks like he's been put through the wringer on this show.
It may just be that he's aged since Broadway Empire...he looks older and more gaunt (which is not to say Goth).
The only thing that bugged me is Perry being beaten to within an inch of his life (thrown headfirst into a wall, for starters) and then he's running and hopping into cars to get away from rioting. Also, the rioting seems like it would really have focused on Alice and Charlie's mother, but they're the first to get away.
Still very much enjoyed it. Wow what a crap day Perry had, to then have his inamorata skunk him like that! No wonder he chewed Paul out, which then just added to his bad day.
I noticed that too. I didn't even see any kind of bruises. But, it's TV, so I let it slide. This isn't the most "realistic" story out there. But it's interesting and compelling.
Well, not really an inamorata...more of a f#^@-buddy (he certainly doesn't seem to enjoy their sex, and he's hinted that he's gay). And as she told him this episode, she had told him in an earlier episode what she was going to do. He just didn't take her seriously.
Why am I having trouble remembering why this happened.
Another thing I missed. How had he hinted at that??
I can't remember the exact exchange, but when one of the cops accuses him of being gay, his non-denial was odd to say the least.
