yes, indeed, their surgery is built on the gateway to hell (Ryan, did you steal that from Buffy the Vampire Slayer?)
15 September 2017 | by See all my reviews

While it is once again not my kind of thing, I would point out that I felt it was a more worthwhile kind of episode, and I am surprised that none of the regular NIP/TUCK devotees singled it out. No, it takes Matt in prison with intentions to get breast implants to satisfy a rapist, then they jump up and down to put in their two pennies worth. This episode returns us to events back in the very first outing, to the guy whose corpse they had to feed to the alligators.

In one half of the convoluted storyline, main villain Escobar Gallardo's daughter comes in search of the truth. Sean eventually breaks down and reveals the whole sordid story, which of course implicates McNamara/Troy as accessories to the obstruction of the truth in a murder case. There is a riveting dream sequence involving a crocodile, that thing's surely too big to be an alligator, okay, I plead ignorance, I don't know, but even though I figured it was a dream, that piece of film was NIP/TUCK restored to what it should have been.

Doesn't change my opinion of the show. But let me give credit where credit is due.

Very interesting performances by Kate Norby, who sounded like Rose McGowan, and Tamara Clatterbuck, who sounded just like Christian's original ex.
