First things first. Last week I referred to Nikki's murder as "Sean's daydream" because when Sean went into the bedroom after he heard voices, nothing was there except the note Nikki left behind. Lots of people I spoke to (like my roommate, whose opinion I respect since he's a TV addict like me) agreed that it was indeed a daydream. But then I got several feedback e-mails from people saying it wasn't a dream Nikki really was shot by that creepy guy. So I consulted my FX contact, who confirmed it

wasn't a daydream! He agreed with me that it was confusing and vague, but that was the intention. This is a rarity with this show since it usually ends each week with most (non-Carver) mysteries solved. So, building on this vague theme, I wasn't surprised that they never mentioned Nikki tonight. Even more vague was tonight's ending with Kimber seemingly bailing on Christian at the altar, but then they showed the previews for next week: She's been kidnapped! I already felt so bad for her after that scene with Gina. How many women receive the diaphragm of their fiancé's former lover as a wedding gift? That Gina's a class act. Speaking of classy, how beautiful for Christian to give Kimber liposuction so she could fit into her wedding dress. But nothing beats Matt in the (not so) classy department. Just when you thought he couldn't possibly be more hateful, he starts dating a neo-Nazi white supremacist played by Brittany Snow. American Dreams? More like "Racist American Dreams" this time. Her mother collects racist ceramic figurines and her father (played by Brian Kerwin on Grey's Anatomy last Sunday) was happy Matt had gay-bashed. Lovely. At least Christian asked Matt to leave the wedding. It was good to see Christian and Sean playing nice, so I'm glad Sean is returning to McNamara-Troy. One final memo to Julian McMahon please stop with the tweezing. The women on this show have more manly eyebrows.  Dave Anderson
