Nearly Crosses the Line
19 May 2017 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

In one of the harshest of all series, I had trouble watching this episode. From the opening, where a phony porn tape is left at Emit's house, to Sy's horrible scene back at the offices of hell. Where Vargas urinates into a cup and forces it on Sy. Emmitt now realizes that Ray will stop at nothing. Unfortunately, he launches Sy at him. Sy is a windbag, full of self- importance and threat, and utterly incompetent when it comes too the realities of the dangerous world. The way that Nikki and Ray deliver the ransom note, which is to be a major source of income. There it is, lying on the ground in front of the house. The wife gets her hands on it, but it could have been a paper boy or a kid walking home from school. These two have reached the acme of idiocy. Somehow, Nikki has gotten it into her head that she is invulnerable. Of course, she and Ray have no idea what the hell is going on with Vargas. He still believes Emit is the parking lot king. The only time any humor comes about are those pregnant moments when Emit or Sy are approached by authority figures, in this case a guy from the IRS who wants to see his books. Then there is Sy, melting in front of the female detectives. The get all worked up about these uncomfortable moments and forget that the whole world is caving in. Emit goes panic stricken when he can't think of an office to put the IRS guy into, because he owns nothing anymore. The final scene where that crazy pair confront Nikki in front of Sy is really unsettling. Off we go to the next week. Can't wait.
