It was going to be a tough ask to compete with the Thanksgiving episodes of seasons past (could anything ever out-gay the Wizard of Oz fantasy sequence?), and this episode sadly doesn’t live up to those standards.
But goddamn, the closing scene got me in what I will happily proclaim is the gag of the season.
And with dreamy bedroom eyes Liam opening the episode, it’s not a bad sandwich. The turkey’s just a little dry in the middle. That’s all.
Seeing Jeremy’s cameo reminded me that Matt still hasn’t reappeared since his cameo in the first episode.
Which is the only thing Legacies can make us grateful for.
Hemlock Grove is how I imagine a HBO show would be if HBO wasn’t constantly fellating itself and getting high off its own “brilliance.”
So it’s, like, the good kind of pretentious: weird and esoteric, but not at all committed to it.
Should I be worried that I’m a fan of non-commitment?
