Lady Killer Season 4, Episode 11

"The answer to the Allison question is Allison herself." The Arquette siblings have been out in full force for this season of Medium. Brother David directed an earlier episode and sister Rosanna starred in this episode as a woman of a certain age who seduces young men for a night of fun in the sack that never ends. The theme song for this broadcast was Take a Walk on the Wild Side, and a more suiting song there never was. The lovely narrator tells us "40 is the new 30," (and let's hope that's true I feel ten years younger already). The opening sequence with the narrator, Michelle, luring us into her web with her white jacket and sexy toss of her head was fun, playful and well done; Rosanna could sell a ten-gallon hat to the headless horseman. The first dream involved the narrator, a grieving young man and a large knife. Allison awoke from that dream and told Joe, "I don't know what she was behaving like." Then after thinking about it for a minute, she realized, "She was behaving just like a man," and with that, Allison tossed Joe's loving arm off her. Cougars have made a comeback in the last few years as older women seem to have grown much more assertive when it comes to getting what they want. And what a fun show - I especially liked the part where the bartender had been nailed to death. He looked like that guy from Hellraiser. What a gruesome way to go. But at long last, women were not the victims! And not only were they not the victims, (spoiler alert) they were also not the ones responsible. Scanlon was in rare form and back to doing his job. The surprising thing was that he actually acted on two of Al's dreams immediately. But just as quickly as he accepted her visions, he began to question them and berated her as being off the mark. She is so often right it is hard for me to believe he still takes this stance with her. Then he waltzed her back into the station and she recognized the irony, stating that she generally feels like "persona non grata," one minute and wined and dined the next. Allison's dreams only told part of the truth. She got the critical bits like the deaths right, but saw Michelle as the instigator and killer. Michelle may have authored the situations under her pen name, Charisma Kennedy, but had no hand in the deaths. She denied the murders and when Scanlon questioned her about the similarities to her book, she screamed, "Maybe it means that your killer can read!" "The Manuel Momentum" Manuel's campaign seemed to be going well until Allison met one of his biggest supporters and got a bad feeling from him. Richard Madison was in cahoots (much to his own chagrin) with Van Dyke to try and take down Manuel's campaign. Allison let Manuel know what she had gotten a bad feeling from Richard's handshake and with a little help from his friends back in the DA's office, it was not hard for Manny to draw a conclusion. I so enjoyed Manny taking Van Dyke's little plan down in front of everyone. Van Dyke's reaction was worth every lousy minute we've had to put up with his conniving, manipulating nastiness. Let's hope he is going down in a big way. I want to see him burn! This was a truly satisfying ending to the show. There was a bad MAN; Scanlon, was right all along. He never thought a woman could overpower a man enough to nail gun him to death. The owner of Michelle's publishing house, Elliot, hit on Lee in the elevator and propositioned him with the now infamous "extra ticket". Luckily, Michelle had let him know earlier that was one of her stories. No, it wasn't "Naughty nun with a bad habit." It was the old, "I have an extra ticket to tonight's big game," ploy. It wasn't until Eliot claimed "No one who has ever spent time with me has ever lived to regret it,' that Scanlon was certain that he was the killer. Scanlon had the best lines of the show "I want to see that movie." "It's 11:45. I never kid after 10 o'clock on a weeknight." "You don't strike me as the 'home-alone-reading' type." "Murder ofa bartender I suspect you may have nailed." Although, Joe got a couple of good ones in, too: "Want to keep your laughing down? I'm trying to fall asleep." "What are kids for if not to be used as excuses to get you out of things you don't want to do?" That last line jinxed the health of little Marie. She awoke the next day with an ear infection. She looked so sad in her bed when Allison was tucking her in. She is scrumptious. To add insult to injury, Joe ended up with the same earache a day later. Maybe God struck him down for making such a terrible joke. Here's hoping that someone actually puts up, "A social networking page like MyCougar!"
