Did You Know?


Nikki (Mary Elizabeth Winstead)'s interaction with Paul (Ray Wise) is reminiscent of the ending scene to Joel Coen and Ethan Coen's 1998 movie The Big Lebowski (1998). Throughout the film, the supposedly supernatural stranger who narrates the film, has a friendly talk with the protagonist, the Dude, at a bowling alley. Both the scene in the film and the scene in the episode are shot similarly. See more »

Well...There You Go...I Suppose
8 June 2017 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

I'm giving a rating of 9 to this episode even though I still don't get much of it. Varga continues to pull strings as he parries and thrusts with he Asian guy. Emit is living in the house. Why did Varga choose these guys in the first place and what the heck is his endgame. That was a really surreal event in the bowling alley after the incredible escape Nikki and her chained up partner experienced. Where is everyone going anyway? Things are so far fetched, even the derailment of the bus (excuse my obvious messed up view of transportation). I have been watching the original episodes of David Lynch's "Twin Peaks" from some twenty years ago. And in the bowling alley, there's one of the people from that series and he is almost supernatural, giving Nikki the keys to a green VW. Since I don't have a clue, I'm just going to see how this all sorts out in the end. And poor Sy Feltz. He lies comatose in the hospital after drinking Varga's tea. After this is over, I'm going to revisit the whole series and see if I can find things I didn't see before. Especially in the early episodes. I love that Gloria and her partner are going rogue now that Gloria's "Chief" status has been stolen from her.
