Oh Lamar, I’ve missed your stone-cold cuntiness!
You actually threatened your own daughter that you would reveal your own grandchild’s illegimatcy! To win a MAYORAL race. Let me ponder that for a moment. Gasmi, name one mayor (not your own). New York doesn’t count. It’s not the presidency, it’s not even the Senate. It’s a fucking mayoralty campaign. This dude is prepared to stab his own granddaughter so his son-in-law can be mayor. Holy shit.
Scarlett and Avery have their big show down. She gets in a few very cogent and bitchy points – 1. If he didn’t dip the dick into that cougar, he never would have gotten his big record deal (HA! Nice one). 2. If they had stayed together the only thing she would have done with her life is possibly become Mrs. Avery Barkley. Avery is so far up his own ass he thinks that is an awesome title to have in the world.
She looks so fierce in this scene. I love her all over again.
Then this happens:
Points to the writers for not having Gunnar magically walk in. But I’m generous enough to think she at least deserves one last goodbye bang.
Deacon and the Revel Kings are having a photo shoot for their tour.
I peed myself laughing looking at this screenshot. It might just be my new happy place.
Let’s deconstruct to savour:
Scarlett and Avery bask in the afterglow of fair-to-middling sex. And I have to discuss a huge pet peeve:
TV producers! If your male character has just had sex, he should be naked and covered with a blanket. Not only are Avery’s jean’s done up, his belt is on! It looks ridiculous. I have to ask if it was the actor’s preference to be covered. Jonathan Jackson is conservative (veering in on wingnut – he supported Huckabee for Christ’s sake!) so maybe this was as naked as he was willing to get on camera. Whatever the reason, it looks stupid. And if it was Jackson’s choice – man up and take the pants off OR try a different show. Maybe you can do more of those Left Behind movies with Kirk Cameron?
Anyway, Scarlett soon discovers that Avery dumped the band and she loses the last shred of affection and respect she had for him.
