May 2, 2007: “Head Games” Season 3, Episode 19

Show of hands, who thought this was another fantastic Medium? Yeah, me too. 90210's Luke Perry, nay, Jason Priestley, my bad, showed up as a nasty, lying gambler. But when his wife, Natalie, vindictively turned off the game right before a Big 3 pointer, I found myself saying, "I'd kill her." Those two have a really special marriage. I find that it's never good when someone who's been threatened is in the shower Psycho! Eek, eek, eek! Joe said, "You always grab your neck when you're dreaming of Natalie Paxton." Then we find out the killer has chopped off her head like in The Hills Have Eyes or something. Another gruesome image. Remember when Allison dreamed inside her dream that she saw Natalie's head in the cupboard? I swear the writers, good as they are, are totally into horror movies and this is how they get all the gore out of their systems. Very realistic scene with the sisters at the kitchen table, Ariel having jinxed Bridgette into verbal silence. My two older sisters were merciless with those kinds of games and I was just gullible enough to believe them! Allison, of course, saved her middle daughter by saying her name. Bridgette responded, "I thought I'd never be able to talk again!" We got to see our three favorite secondary characters this week - writers, take notice! We love that kind of story line with Devalos and the assistant mayor and Scanlon. To use Lynn's words, "Pretty damn magnificent!" While they're fighting to put Jason Priestley in jail, Neve Campbell arrived and came off as completely batty. I immediately thought there is something a little off about her. She must have an ulterior motive. Joe has been asked to seek the counseling of the company therapist. In choosing what to wear to his first meeting, he held out two shirts and asked Allison which one made him look more "OK"; it was hysterical. The one on the left looked paranoid, while the one on the right looked like it had anger issues. The shrink told Joe he was a "walking billboard for anger." And then said "depression is unchannelled anger." Where did we hear this before? Feels like that line was said earlier in the season. Does anyone remember? I'm having another senior moment. Allison's brim and treacle speech was fabulous. She got all fiery and bandied about terms like "perverse expedience." Manuel answered her charge with, "Don't worry about it. We're not gonna do 'expedience' today." Allison explained to the text-message-receiving-in-the-middle-of-the-night husband of hers that she doesn't have a lot of friends because she "immediately knows too much." So I asked myself, "Well then, how come she doesn't know anything about crazy Neve/Debra? She asked that same crisis-stricken man how therapy was. Joe: "He said I was full of anger." Allison: "What did you make of that?" Joe: "It pissed me off." Perfect deadpan. I love fish tanks, they are so calming. OK, little Maria is growing up too fast, with the sweeping and answering the phone too adorable. Nathalie Paxton's head on Ramona Hensley's body not a fan of the gore. We get the picture - nasty, and right before bed. I know we're in May sweeps, but if I wanted to see decapitations, I'd rent Caligula. I would not have wanted to be sitting in the bathtub when Allison threw Joe's phone in it. Not that it was going to electrocute him, but it made me think it would. It did look a little suspicious, he and his late-night messaging sessions with the other survivor from the hostage situation at his work. It would not be such a large leap for her to think Joe's having an affair. The ep ended on Allison dreaming that Debra is the next victim of the decapitation killer. However, we know she's signed on for a three-episode arc, so she may live through another. From the looks of the previews for next week, Debra may turn out to be a reporter looking to expose Allison and the DA's office. Until then.... show less
