Chandra Kapoor: What was going on there?
Mr. Day: You know.
Chandra Kapoor: I don't.
Mr. Day: She had that vibration some women got... Next thing you know, they're dead... Like that.
Chandra Kapoor: Vibration?
Mr. Day: Like she the cat, and you the yarn... Women like that out to destroy you... Sometimes you got no choice but to strike first. You know what I'm saying?
Chandra Kapoor: Like, uh, she deserved it?
Mr. Day: Like it's a given with women like that to think they're God's gift, and you ain't nothing but a plaything... until they find out otherwise, like she did.

Slow and lazy writing
17 August 2016 | by seshasai-trisSee all my reviews

The screenwriters have lingered long enough!

The character building is over , setting up the environment is over. Yet , there is no progress made. There is absolutely no tension in the show. the writers / directors are not able to make us (audience ) root for any character. The riveting factor is nothing .

We have seen several minutes of footage of a leg with eczema or whatever , but they're not satisfied . They keep is giving more of it diluting the essence of the show .

Last episode ending had a great lead on the trial which wasn't even used or brought up in this one ..

Very bad !
