They did the road trip montage with the highway signs and planes and buses! Excellent, no notes. Plus sex and drugs. HILAR.

Steve is just the worst liar. I enjoyed his rage at the racist, classist bullshit from the feeb, but he’s just so bad at covering up, it undercuts everything. I was honestly surprised Irene didn’t twig right away—if she didn’t love him, she would have realized all his casual questions were practically screaming “I had him killed.”

Steve has never really had his (misplaced) confidence validated, and I'm seeing a lot of "faking it until making it" here, despite accidentally making it already.

It's total cringe when he tries hard for want of validation instead of leaning back and enjoying his success.

Not the best mindset to be in when abusing cocaine, which kind of removes all self doubt.
