Did You Know?


Quincannon had no legal right to try and take the church away from Jesse. Verbal agreements are not binding if there is no witness, and even if there is a witness they usually are not legally binding. Since Jesse did not sign any legal documents Quincannon had no legal claim over the church or the property, and therefore in the eyes of the law would be guilty of trespassing, assault with a deadly weapon and even attempted murder. Jesse however would be in the clear, as he was just acting in self defense and should not of been arrested. And even if Quincannon was the legal owner of that land, the way he tried to take it from Jesse would of gotten him arrested as well. If someone needs to be forcibly evicted you don't do it yourself, you have to have the police do it, you can't just walk in and shoot them, that would be murder. See more »


Odin Quincannon: Now, I don't want you to feel like you're human shields, but let's not mince words: You are human and you're gonna be acting as shields of sorts.

Pretty Numbing
18 July 2016 | by mad_man_moonSee all my reviews

This week's episode was very heavy on the deus ex machina ... in a reasonably literal sense.

How events panned out force Jesse's internalisation of the pressures on him to grow which means that the impact of what's happening here are really hitting home.

This said, it's a bit of an empty feeling I got from the episode overall. Perhaps my least favourite (yet still beautiful) of the season thus far. I think it starts out fantastically, and I don't mean the action, either. Some of the little bits from W. Earl Brown are so perfect that everyone else blends in to the background apart from Haley, who basically owns the episode.

Haley's performances throughout have been perhaps the most embodying (alon.... ) ... actually, no ... I can't pick him out. The actors all ... to a tee ... have embodied the characters they've been written so strongly it's ridiculous. That's no different here, the focus is just on Haley. From watching the first 'talking preacher' I see that they had a lot of rehearsal before hand, this has clearly really helped them hone character ... and in some instances change it a little to suit how they're feeling it.

As I say, though, for whatever reason I'm a little numb to this particular episode, and I don't know why. Perhaps it was the meat in the sandwich, because it begins and ends fantastically. Also that end ... I'm really hoping that has something to do with Arseface, however it's so unclear, and so joyfully abstract that who even knows.
