January 17, 2007: The Whole Truth Season 3, Episode 7

Our Medium has to find out how the death of a well-respected assemblyman and a young boy stuck in a deep well are connected. And I believe the Rolling Stones can help. I loved that the Stones spoke to Allison! It was like God and the burning bush speaking to Moses. "Please allow me to introduce myself.... " A little "Sympathy for the Devil" can go a long way. The screaming of the boy in the well sent shivers both up and down my spine. I got terrifying goosebumps! Allison dreams about the boy, Jimmy, again and runs to the desert to try to help him. She finds him in one of the many holes in the ground near the train tracks. How is she going to get this boy out of there? Oh right, the magic of cell phones, plus she has an in with the DA's office. This is all rather hopeful until, of course, the rescuers only find the skeleton of the boy, rather than the boy himself. It was great to see Ruth Williamson, as the wife of a man who may have practiced autoerotic asphyxiation and died in the act. I loved her as Mrs. Grubman, an aging woman addicted to either plastic surgery or Dr. Christian Troy on Nip/Tuck. Ariel wants to know what "clubbing" is.... How can we keep her from growing up? Joe was a little pissy during this ep. I heard through the grapevine that Jake Weber may not reprise his role another season. Seems he feels he is just a foil for Patricia Arquette and would rather get his hands on a juicier role where he might have a little more to do than pour cereal and drive his girls to school. This may be all hearsay; I mean, doesn't he realize what a sex symbol this role has made him? Where are my Joe fans out there? What do you think? I loved the way this story unfolded tonight. And I loved that Scanlon was around to say some of the things he said that are unmentionable here. Devalos had a nice showing, too, but he didn't want to believe Allison. He didn't want to taint the assemblyman's reputation. Lucky for him, Allison kept dreaming and uncovered the deeper, darker truth of an already soiled reputation, and implicated Casey even more. Well played, folks. I missed seeing the girls in this one. I hope they come back soon with a Maria Lark ep. Her eccentric humor keeps me laughing long after the show ends. show less
