Mr. Mercedes(S03E05) “Great Balls of Fire”

Alright guys and gals we have a great episode brought to us tonight and it was really good. Things are heating up in the courtroom but we will definitely be talking about that in a little bit. And we got a lot to discuss so let’s get to this review!

So in this episode we see more of what happens in the courtroom with the trial of Lou (Breeda Wool) and it ain’t looking good. Why do I say it’s not looking good. One they called Hodges (Brendan Gleeson) to testify against Lou but because Hodges can’t stand to see someone innocent like Lou go to prison he defended her in the courtroom. Did he have to tell the truth; yes but it’s because he was sworn under oath to do so. I find it amusing though that the District Attorney (Natalie Paul) tried so hard to make Hodges be the bad guy in court but it backfired in some ways in others it didn’t and it makes it hard to see if Lou really will win the case.

But the more and more Lou stays in that jail cell. The more she seems like it might not be a psychosis or psychological thing that’s happening with Lou. It seems almost like Brady is some how trying to take over her like a possession. Especially the way how she talked to Holly (Justine Lupe) in the episode today. It really makes me think that the whole thing is going to be possession and that all what Lou really needed was an exorcist. Wouldn’t that be something?

Now I’m not going to lie, ever since the trial began there’s been a lot of things happening. Like for example take Lou, she was fine when she killed Brady, she was fine when the court dealings were beginning but now she coo-coo for coa-coa puffs. Maybe some guard is giving her a psychedelic drug to make her like this or maybe it’s Brady’s spirit trying to take possession of her it’s hard to say right now but we will know soon enough.

Now, I’ve also noticed that Morris (Gabriel Ebert) his motives have changed. I don’t if it’s because Peter (Rarmian Newton) is a fan of the same author that changed him and his motives or if it’s because he doesn’t want Alma (Kate Mulgrew) to get to him first. Whatever the reason is, I’m starting to like the guy. Did he come across as a douchey character at first yes but now he feels responsible to help Peter out and find the manuscripts to see what happens to Jimmy Gold. And of course if Morris doesn’t like what he reads then there might be conflict but until then. He feels like he needs to find Peter and help him or warn him. It will be interesting to see if Morris ends up becoming a hero in the story and actually save Peter from being killed or something.

And then there’s Alma, who really did get a nervous itch when she saw Peter’s family getting questioned by the police. I mean she went to the extreme to take care of Danielle’s body that has been locked up for what two episodes now. So of course she would want to get rid of the body by now. Poor Danielle, grind in a wood grinder. Maybe Alma will make Danielle burgers and feed them to Morris.
