A chink in Masters' suit of armor
12 November 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Gut-wrenching might be a light way of describing 'Catherine', which itself is a surprising episode because it's the sort of story that would usually arrive later in a show's run. Not episode 5. Emotion is right there at the surface with this one. Ethan really comes through for Virginia, whose family life has hit a low point (pretty much a 180 from the guy who was belting her not all that long ago). And then there's Masters, possibly at his lowest point ever. I don't want to spoil anything, but tragedy visits his own family, and it is utterly devastating. If they haven given Sheen an Emmy, then why the hell not? Also, can I just say that using that particular name for the episode's title is a punch to the stomach? You wouldn't know this is a hard episode judging from the very funny dialogue in the opening moments, which is why the dramatic substance is so hard-hitting. But that's also because you really like these characters.

9/10
