“We’ll know how cool we look.”
I think the Monarch just murdered Andy Warhol. Or Wes Warhammer, anyway. Who may or may not have been Andy Warhol. ‘It Happening One Night’ sadly repairs the hole in the floor of Venture Tower, but that doesn’t stop it from being one of the season’s best entries so far. From Hank’s dorky-sweet date to the Monarch’s lunatic raid on the Doom Factory’s lair, there was plenty to recommend the episode. It even managed to whip up a little tension with a moment that looked like it was heading for a repeat on 24′s death when the Monarch, eager to do a slow-motion-jump-away-from-the-explosion deal, got his coat snagged during his heroic leap. Shying away from pulling that trigger is understandable, and the brick joke that lands at the episode’s end as a result is side-splitting.

Richie’s crisis is in full swing and Devon recalls her 60s heyday at Andy Warhol’s Factory. It’s seductive stuff – but is it all too strange and self-indulgent?
It looks like the building really did fall down last week. Which is confusing, because that scene could only have looked more like a dream sequence if it featured unicorns – and because neither the city nor the characters seem the slightest fazed by a catastrophe in central Manhattan. It hardly even figures in Richie’s crisis that he walked away from the epicentre with barely a scratch: he’s more weighed down by the prospect of selling his beloved record label to some “Nazi pricks”, relapsing on coke and the small business of covering up a murder.
