(Update: our recap is right here!)
Well that was a big giant fakeout! Mr Producer Who Talks to The Internet about How There’s a Big Cliffhanger and No One Knows Who Marilyn Really Is? NEVER PRETEND TO BE IN THE KNOW AGAIN. You made me have a big giant fever dream that – well – well, all right, it was pretty fun to imagine. Mr Know-nothing, I owe you a night heavily influenced by tequila.
STILL! What is this nonsense about not having a Marilyn? HOGWASH! Trust your gut, right? Oh, I suppose you can’t say “I was right” if you made two guesses, but in that FIRST one, before I went back on it, before Mister I Just Say Stupid Things to Reporters tried to spoil things, I said the thing it took precisely no guts to say: that it would be Karen (and that Ellis needs to die).
I just watched the episode 1.2 times (the .2 for the ending twice) and I gotta tell you. I think it’s the best episode of the season, for reasons that I will go into in the proper recap, which will come tomorrow.
Meanwhile, what did you think of this season’s big finish? What are we looking forward to next year now that the big Question is just a statement? Will Ellis ever stop dressing like an usher at the theater in the Willy Wonka Chocolate Factory? And WHAT happened to the Degas?! (No, really. The frame on that thing must be really nicked. Come on, people. Priceless art, here. Get some corner foam.)
Seriously, what did you think?
