"Float like a butterfly, motherfucker!"

The entire scene with Job in the ring, the cuts back-and-forth to his conversation with Sugar, Job's outfit*, it was all A+. We've re-watched that scene a couple of times. Top notch. Job is so perfect that I've just realized I'm anticipating his demise. I've never believed Hood would make it out alive (and I may be proven wrong) but I want Job to make it out.

In second place is Rebecca's scene with Brock. Third place goes to Stowe in the cafe (holy shit but I'm not looking forward to that reckoning). Last, not least, is Chayton's death. So glad to see him go. The graphics on that were over-the-top good.

DirtyOldTown, when you say "resolve," are you talking about Brock re-living his torture and rescue in his bedroom? I thought it was more about him questioning his place in Proctor's life vs Proctor's "special" niece.

*It seems like Job's outfit and makeup have been toned-down from season 1, which is too bad.

Those weren't my words. They were from the episode description at

I thought Chayton's final was rather anticlimactic, actually. Too easy. Left with a measure of dignity.

Then again, I did like the Beowulf aspect, where Hood = Beowulf, just waiting for Grendel to show up while he slept.

Stowe is a great big bad. Won't stop, won't listen to reason, like the Terminator.

Cool Papa Bell, regarding Stowe, you need to see this week's ep, ASAP.

I'm all caught up now. And, it turns out that a friend of mine is the storyboard artist for the past two episodes.

Total Fanshee here now.
