I love this show. It has been somewhat spoiled for me in the past when things were revealed to be even more staged than you might expect, but, if you suspend disbelief and pretend everything is as it seems, it’s really a fascinating thing.
This episode is Craig and Zoe. He lives in Pennsylvania and she lives in Florida. Craig is the catfish and Zoe has him on the hook. So the guys head to Pittsburgh to get to the bottom of things. He actually met her online through his own sister. Craig has a family sob story and needed to be loved. Zoe has stood him up four times. She somehow got all of his passwords to his accounts and got up to some shenanigans I don’t really understand. I should point out that Craig is black and Zoe has pictures of a white chick, but already we suspect another photo of a black chick is the real Zoe. Both are cute so I don’t know why she would use someone else’s pic. But these Catfishers are crazy.
Everyone goes to Florida to interview the sister. I really don’t understand Facebook or exactly what is happening. I’m old. 🙂 Zoe posted a bunch of nekkid pics of girls who were friends with Craig, or Craig’s sister’s friends with full names and on Facebook.
Neve and Taylor Hicks, I mean Max start working the case. It looks like the black chick is the catfisher. She’s in North Carolina. She has Youtubes where she looks evil! They are off to North Carolina.
Eventually, the confrontation happens. Cassandra/Zoe is not cute in person. I don’t know how she had such cute picture before. I get now why she used a fake picture. She said it was just a joke, she says she just likes like messing with people. She did it for fun.
This really isn’t a great episode. Had I watched it first I would not have even tried to recap. If this is the season premiere, I am disappointed in what this season will be like.
Craig confronts Zoe/Cassandra again. Craig tries to make her understand what she has done. Then Neve and Max took over talking to her. Sigh. Cassandra plays the bully card. I don’t care.
This was a dumb episode. Later on the after show, Cassandra said she had removed the Zoe profile from Facebook but Craig said it was still up. I hope these episodes get better.
