wow
3 February 2015 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

This single teleplay is the best in the series so far, "ready for Broadway" as far as I am concerned.

There are so many brilliant exchanges that I have lost track.

When the corrupt county official is arrested by Bullock for his own protection, Jane, still BRILLIANTLY portrayed by Robin Weigert, responds to his request, delivered from his cell, "I'm thirsty" with the retort "Lie on your back, take aim, and p*ss." Usually I would expect to wait a full episode for just one line this good but this instalment has many.

When the sly and cunning ex-nanny sets her sights on the nearest pants-wearing male to begin securing her future, seducing said male, then telling tales against her former employer, then assuming a revealing position and asking her new protector to introduce her to Swearengen, the hapless male begins to see his own predicament and mumbles, "... lucky we did not meet across a poker table." The quality is non-stop.

Wow
