And Brody Gets An Incomplete
Oh, the Fords are the gift that keeps on giving, aren't they? And when I say that, I'm not referring to myself as the gift-receiver, but to the many of you who probably save a lot of time in your television-viewing days by fast-forwarding through all their scenes. Me? I suffer so I can mock. We all have our crosses to bear.
I may or may not be a bad person for this, but two of the triumvirate-brothers-of-pain ended up humiliated today and it felt good. Oh so good. Nate's not really worth discussing since it was a bit of a throw-away moment in which (now evil) Matthew awesomely disarmed Nate by mentioning that Dani had once propositioned him for sex. I'm pretty sure I was supposed to see Matthew as bad and Nate as good in this scenario but, alas, I apparently watched it wrong. Next time, could Matthew do us a solid and humiliate Nate right off of our screens?
But of course the big centerpiece yesterday was the absolutely hilarious beat-down of Ford by Brody, defending the honor of his formerly-amnesiac fiance and possible babymama, Jessica.
I feel like I'm letting you guys down by not providing a screencap of one of David Gregory's (Ford) stellar Three Stooges reaction shots, but it was all such a blur that I couldn't pull it off.
While the fight was hysterical and I was clapping and whooping it up, it was ultimately disappointing because Langston got lame (not much of a leap) and went and got security to break it up. The security dude broke it up early enough that Ford was able to be upright and chatting normally two scenes later. Now come on. Brody was a Navy SEAL, was he not? He couldn't have done a little more damage?
More damage, as in perhaps accidentally killing Ford? Because I could cheer for that. Truth be told, of the three brothers, this is probably the one I hate the least -- but only in his former smarmy player persona. This new earnest "teach me how to be a better man" version of Ford is running up my eye doctor bills because of all the endless rolling. I would relish the death of this character. We can't possibly be expected to feel sorry for him, can we? I sincerely am uncertain as to what is expected of us.
Okay, give me a sec here. Uh-huh. Uh-huh. Nope, I don't feel bad.
