Blood & Oil Season 1 Episode 10 – TV Review

Blood & Oil Departures Amber Don finale

It’s what we all wanted. For Amber, at least.

Blood & Oil’s over, and nobody will cry for it.

At least they got to wrap everyone’s subplots up.

However unearned and improbable those wrap-ups may be.

But damn, it looks pretty.

Blood & Oil Season 1 Episode 2 – TV Review

Blood & Oil Amber Valletta Carla wine

She’ll do it, I tell you.

Well, after the destructively fast pace of last week’s premiere, it’s time for Blood & Oil to grow up and become a proper ABC primetime soap.

So get ready for arbitrary additional characters, poor communication between our leads, and a break-neck drop in speed.

At least Revenge had the revenge-of-the-week thing to keep it moving.
