He tries to cover ground while also complimenting Rachel, but when Lee slides in to talk to Rachel, he tells Rachel about Kenny’s “dark side” when he drinks, and LORD, what a terrible thing to do.
Sassy With nothing to lose on this two-on-one, Rachel pulls Kenny aside to corroborate the story Lee told her. Well, he just walks back toward Lee in full laughter. His one-on-one oyster bar date seemed ill-fated from the start, and after their botched first kiss, it's clear it's already over.
The world-weary Vinci detective Ray Velcoro (Colin Farrell) is a piece of shit, but he may be just as disgusted with himself as everyone around him is. One second Velcoro is encouraging his son Chad’s self-esteem and then the next—after drinking himself silly from the self-loathing of intimidating a journalist and being the stooge for a crooked businessman—he is on the edge of humiliating his son in front of his entire school.
In a profile piece for espn W (side note: is it just “It’s happening when it’s happening because that’s what feels right. That was never the case for me.”Yeah, I think a lot of us needed this happy news in light of Kacy and Cori’s breakup.So even though I understand there are people who think I should have done it sooner, it wasn’t right for me at the time. It’s my journey.” Reading the @espn W article on @Seattle Storm great, Sue Bird (@Sbird10), makes us smile even harder when looking at a #TBT photo we took of her with her partner, @Seattle Reign FC star Megan Rapinoe (@MRapinoe), at last year's @Top Spin Charity tournament. Although I can’t confirm how long these two have officially been together, some outlets are reporting it has been a few months.And in episode two, “Night Finds You,” the impetus for change rears its head when Velcoro’s son is taken away.Velcoro’s ex-wife Alicia (Abigail Spencer) shows up when Chad is supposed to spend the weekend with his father and the incensed wife has reached the end of her tether.It’s perhaps the most ridiculous moment of the season thus far, veering the show close to the suspension-of-disbelief breakpoint—though there certainly are some wish-fulfillment fantasy aspects to it.
But as over-the-top as the beating is, it does explain who Ray Velcoro is and part of the reason he’s bloated with self-contempt and shame.Frightening his already anxious boy, sickening his ex-wife’s current boyfriend and new father figure, as we saw in episode one, “The Western Book Of The Dead,” Velcoro didn’t just stop there.Fueled by booze, self-hatred and a recognizable revulsion in an ineffectual son he’s not even 100% sure is his–denial is another corrosive eating away at Velcoro’s broken soul—as we saw in episode one the crooked detective went to the house of the bully who victimized his son and beat the living shit out of his dad right in front of him.Plus, Bryan clashes with Rachel's family, Peter has cold feet, and Eric has a night in the fantasy suite in Rioja, Spain. We've made it to the hometown dates and we're joined by Jasmyn Lawson, Culture Editor at Giphy. There's no episode to recap this week, so we decided to talk about “Bachelorette” firsts: the experience of being a first time viewer of the show, the significance of the first black Bachelorette, and what it’s like to be kicked off of the show on.. Actress Erin Darke joins to send off 'snakey' Lee, discuss Eric's need for affirmation, and the consistently wild misdirection from ABC's promos. On this episode, we talk through part one of Kenny & Lee's two on one date, and we're just hoping that Lee get's washed under in the tide of realness that is Kenny.Kenny and Lee are at it again with some creative insults as we come off last week’s spelling bee date cliffhanger. A leap of faith (in heeled boots)Rachel collects Brian as soon as they land for a one-on-one, and with no time to waste, they head to the top of a gigantic ski jump that they’re supposed to repel down.Last night, we heard Blake and Lucas revisit Bananagate, sort of, De Mario defending the practice and art of having a...
