S01.E08: This Young Woman Fought Like Hell

Recommended Posts

This series was about 3 or 4 episodes too long.

In the end I really liked the characterizations of the daughters and the performances by the actors playing them.

I felt rage with the scene of Debra mincing down the hallway in the hospital to visit Terra, her hair perfectly waved.  Her daughter was centimeters away from being slaughtered in a parking lot and it was the same airy-fairy demeanor.  Grrrrrrr.

Spoiler

In the two hour Oxygen special, news crews were on the scene of the attack. So we saw clips of that. Debra is shown there trying to get to Terra and being stopped by the officers on scene. So that scene on the mini-series is another one of those fictionalizations that people think I should just shrug off.

I was thinking same thing about the hospital scene on the series. Number one, forget identifying John first thing, I would have seen my daughter first no matter what. He was gone, he could wait.

I thought Ronnie acted more lifelike  in seeing  Terra than Debra did.  Even though they tried to stop her, it seemed like Ronni flew in the door to see Tera. I also thought Ronnie gave her a more realistic type of hug.  She squeezed her so tight & think she only let go to let Debra hug her. Debra's hug was good but it didn't seem as realistic as Ronni's was.

Liz wasn't looking for love...she married men instead of living with them first. She had many substance abuse issues and it clouded her judgement. The only men she truly loved were Mike Todd (he was the love of her life) and Richard Burton. Her first marriage to Conrad Hilton, Jr. was a disaster. He physically and emotionally abused her... she was barely 18 when she married him and did not have much experience in relationships. I think her predilection for marriage was another addiction for her. If Mike Todd hadn't died at such early age I think she would have stayed married to him until her death. 

Right, I know Liz's history. As I said, I was just responding to someone that said Debra needed to stop dating altogether based ion the fact that she had been married 5 times. I was pointing out that it was a ludicrous thing for him to say, to tell anyone to permanently give up dating.

Debra can date again...just hope she Googles any future dates before meeting them and marrying them two months later.

That's what my mother always told me, her first cousin married Mike Todd Jr:)
