Last week’s premiere was about mobilizing the troops. This week was about setting them up for battle. Some positioned themselves well (i.e. Victoria), while some might as well have painted a bullseye on their foreheads (i.e. Declan). Oh – and the rich are getting richer, while the poor are getting poorer. Wonder if the Hamptons is voting Republican this year?
“Resurrection” begins in a flashback with Mom and little Amanda on the road listening to INXS’s “Never Tear Us Apart”, which I guess now qualifies as a golden oldie (which I guess qualifies me as a golden oldie). Mom reassures Amanda she isn’t going anywhere – “and they can never tear us apart” bum, bum, bum, bum…
Emily wakes up to find herself in her house with her perma-houseguest Nolan. On the couch, fully clothed. BOR-ing! They passed out while spying on Victoria in her shack in Shacktown USA. Emily assures Nolan she will rescue sister Charlotte from the evil clutches of Dr. Doom’s Sober House, keeping her from Victoria in the process. The battle for Charlotte begins!
Sorry, Nols, GTFO
Unfortunately for sad sack Charlotte, Conrad has declared her mentally unfit to screw her out of her $600 million inheritance. That’s right $600 mill and some change. Yeah, Romney would look pretty good to me too.
“Who are these children you keep referring to?”
Daniel is making his “math is hard!” face as he goes over company papers. Something is wrong! The numbers just don’t add up! Could Pops be up to something fishy??? While wondering if it’s too early for a drink, Ashley enters in her skimpy tennis outfit to lure him away from his work. She’s a mole with costume changes! Sober Daniel blows her off (as opposed to the other way around).
“Didn’t we decide on the nurse outfit today?”
Emily calls Daniel to report the shady dealings of Dr. Scumbag, slowly drawing him back into her web. She tells him the doctor has a history of keeping wealthy patients longer than needed to bleed them for cash. He immediately finds Dr. Doom on the internet. Good job, bro!
Meanwhile Secret Agent Peeta observes Emily from a sand dune. The watcher is being watched!
At the Sober House/Prison, Dr. Doom is grilling Charlotte for info on who might have given her the cell phone they found. Charlotte maintains her innocence, while counting the moments until she can grab a drink. Kidding!
Declan is at the docks when a classmate named Trey Chandler (barf) approaches him. The rich kid asks the poor kid to hold onto a stolen bracelet and he’ll give him $500. Declan is cool with that, just as long as it’s not drug related. Yeah, Declan – stolen property is a real step up. Nothing bad can happen to the poor kid! Keep making good decisions, kiddo!
”Huh? Jewelry? What?”
