S02.E10: The Gold Coast

Recommended Posts

Obviously I'm speculating, but the Snells are going to get rich off the deal, which now means Darlene and Zeke if she adopts him, correct? And if Darlene is killed by the cartel, it wouldn't surprise me if the Byrds end up with Zeke, as mentioned earlier. Which means, depending on the timing, that Zeke and his adoptive family could end up with that wealth.

There's a lot of ifs in that scenario, for sure, but if the show goes on long enough, I can see it happening.

And though Ruth is kind of a hot mess, honestly, she's the one in this group I'd want raising my orphaned kid. She's been absolutely dogged in her pursuit of a better life for Wyatt and shielding her cousins from the shitstorm that surrounds them. She's not always successful, but she sure gives it her best and there's never any doubt who comes first. Of course she's not neck-deep in with the cartel (yet), so that does make it a bit easier for her...

But with that said I don't see how they are going to take her out next season without hurting the baby which you know she is going to wear as a shield - 24 x7. 

The Cartel won't care one bit about the baby. They will take her out if they see fit to do so, baby or no baby.

When Marty delivered the baby to Darlene, wasn’t he carrying him in what looked like a Baby Bjorn carrier, that would not even be likely unless he walked to her house.  Most people would not put a baby in one of those types of carriers to walk from their car into a house.

I wish I liked the daughter more, as the moral compass of the show, but god she's annoying. Still, run Charlotte! Run far away!

This. Charlotte made some great points, but she was so whiny and annoying that I wanted to smack her in the face whenever she opened her mouth. 

This season was dark. Great acting and pretty good writing, but everyone was scared or sad all of the time. Poor Ruth. I really just want to see that kid happy.

Good riddance Cade "Slingblade" Langmore.

LOL. And it got worse as the season went on. When Cade met Wendy in the diner, I kept waiting for him to ask the waitress to bring him  some French fried potaters.

I doubt the show will kill off Darlene any time soon.  She makes a good enemy.  Even if Marty and Wendy have to deal with the Cartel there is still Darlene gumming up the works.  Plus she is clever and diabolical.  In other words fun.

Clever? Or just in the way? I don't see what she can do on her own when the Snells don't own the land anymore.

I said it before, two or three episodes ago, the sooner she dies the better

Such a horrible antagonist for the show. 

Using the Breaking Bad analogy as a comparison, she is a Tuco, not a Gus Fring.  Emotional, illogical, unbending, does not think things through. 

I don't find her the least bit clever.  She is completely transparent and easily predictable.

Why didn't Ruth tell the Byrds that her dad killed the FBI agent, and that's how they can get rid of him? Just make an anonymous tip, no more dad for 20+years. If they had waited about 15 minutes for the car to be found, the problem would have taken care of itself. I didn't get leaving the body out in the open either.
I also think the boat looks small, but I don't know anything about riverboat casinos.
I didn't mind Charlotte too much, I get where she was coming from. Marty and Wendy are worried about her, but not worried that their son is perfectly fine with laundering money. That's kind of messed up.
Someone please kill Darlene. I was hoping the Snells would take each other out.

  Sad to see Rachel leave as she is the only person who can get emotion from Marty

Why do we think she’d leaving? She left last season but was back fairly quickly. The character still owns the blue cat. I predict she’ll be back and having a full blown affair with Marty by next season.
