Unexpectedly Moving and Thought-Provoking
23 September 2019 | by disambiguatorSee all my reviews

Normally, I consider Ballers as a "light", probably somewhat exaggerated, but very entertaining take on the people-side of the NFL. Occasionally though, it offers its take on a serious or societal issue. Last night's "Crumbs" was one of those instances.

Last week, after Spencer verbally agreed to sign the talented, but troubled running back, Kisan Teague after he was cut because of his involvement in an incident where someone was shot, I thought that given this is the last season, if we heard anything more from Kisan, it would be from the standpoint of a "redemption arc".

Near the end of the episode, as soon as the pivotal scene opened showing everyone having a good time, I said to myself: "Welp, I know how this ends...", and I was right on the money. I don't want to give anything away, but the moving, beautifully, haunting song that played over Spencer's profound, closing monologue delivered while looking out over the city skyline as it rained that night, left me thinking about the episode awhile after it ended.

I was left thinking "Changing is so hard, because no matter how much a person may WANT to change (not saying that was the case in this instance), "the past" doesn't "want" you to."

One of, if not THE best episode of the series.
