I’m really not up to this recap at the moment but my TV is refusing to let me use On Demand. I tried resetting the box and now I have no guide information and no idea what is on. So I’m going to hope this episode puts me in a better headspace.
Maddie is dressed up as Marilyn Monroe and so are dozens of other women all in the same dress. I guess this is how she plans on getting away with murder. Meanwhile The Doctor is on his way to get his award. He chats with Sally on the phone and says he wants to facetime with the bumblers (TOV) after his reception. He also tells her that with regard to the FBI they need to be prepared to run the periwinkle option.
Apparently, the Marilyns are going to be servers at the awards dinner. The TOV have their own ridiculous disguises. Richard’s is particularly bad. The guys start spreading rumors that The Doctor is going to be the new big shot in the group and everyone starts kissing his ass. My brain is functioning at about 20% today and I am already confused. Where does the TOV think Maddie is and how is she being ignored by everyone to just have her own little assassination plan? How did the guys not recognize Jules in her disguise, didn’t they all leave the house together? She’s where the same ugly dress she was wear when they were at the house chatting about the bad sex that Ezra had with Maddie.
I have no idea what is going on. Why do they need The Doctor’s fingerprints? Why are they making imprints of his keys? Next we see Maddie headed for The Doctor with a syringe and Sophia has to stop her. The Doctor is confused about why Sophia attacked a Marilyn and the “she tripped me” explanation doesn’t really fly. Mattie flees the reception and the TOV go back to the house with Sally and Max. The next thing you know they are Facetiming with The Doctor. I am not following this episode at all. Ezra shows The Doctor the ring and the TOV think this ends their tenure with The Doctor. The Doctor has long term plans for them. Where is Sophia? Where is Maddie? Why did The Doctor say all their families are fine if Ezra’s dad is dead?
Then out of nowhere, Sally shoots Max multiple times and he appears to be dead. Only he is not. The Doctor wants to use his body to make people think he has died. Le sigh.
Cut to Ezra and Richard pretending to be FBI agents serving a warrant to The Doctor’s father to search the house. Because why not?
Shelly Cohen gets on the elevator with Jules at the hotel. Shelly pretends to wonder where they have met before. When he gets off the elevator he says, “See you soon macaroon!” This freaks her out because that is what Lenny said to her when she first dropped her off at the cabin in New York. She follows him to The Doctor’s suite where he opens the door to greet, “Mr. Cohen.” Again, where the hell are Maddie and Sophia?
Maddie shows up at the coffee shop where Sally is for a bit of girl talk. Maddie tries to get Sally to help her kill The Doctor, but Sally says death is too good for him, she wants him to suffer. Then two scenes later, she kills The Doctor.
The TOV and Patrick show up to find The Doctor dead. They presume that Maddie did it. But Maddie is being chased by Shelly, and Sophia is tied up in a closet. Jules spontaneously appears out of thin air to knock Shelly out with a champagne bottle. Perhaps only 10% of my brain is working because this seem like the most disjointed, hot mess of an episode I’ve ever seen.
If the plan was not to kill The Doctor, then why were they going to all the trouble to make fake fingerprints to get in the safe deposit box? Patrick tracks down Maddie on a bus headed to Rochester and arrests her for crimes she did not commit. Max and the TOV divide up all the money from the safe deposit box. Max holds on to Sally’s share. I guess Maddie and Sophia don’t get a cut?
The TOV says their teary goodbyes and plan to meet up at a Brooklyn coffee shop in three months. A kid brings Ezra a note and he heads to a motel to meet her.
Ezra gets a phone call on one of The Doctor’s burner phones. He pretends to be The Doctor. It seems that Ezra and Sophia will still be in the game.
This was not supposed to be a season finale. So we are basically just left hanging. Sorry for the late and very crappy recap. I hope y’all enjoyed the episode more than I did. Thanks for sticking with me til the bitter end.
