What I’m Watching: House of Lies


House of Lies: Season 4, Episode 2 “I’m a Motherfucking Scorpion, That’s Why” (B+)

These twin narratives that take place concurrently during Marty’s jail sentence and in the present day are actually working pretty well, and it’s extremely entertaining to see the state of affairs for Marty in prison. I was delighted to see Jon Bass, who played new digital editor Bree on “The Newsroom,” as Gabe, Marty’s new cellmate who was overeager and excessively chatty at best. Pitching the idea that Ellis was going to invent a barber robot, Ellis managed to create a brilliant setup of two maniacal minds. Marty managed to play it extremely cool and shrug off Ellis’ many requests for collaboration, which Marty so slyly manipulated him into wanting. Jeannie played her role to perfection by using her new fierce anger to pick apart Dante Vallerio and get him scared while Marty was working Ellis on the inside. Two present-day scenes were my favorites, however, and those were the opening awkwardness of Doug and Sarah asking Jeannie if they could have her baby and the closing airborne interaction with Monica, who continues to be one of the best parts of the show. She knows just what to say to get under Marty’s skin, though she wasn’t exactly starting from a losing vantage point here when she slinked back from first class to greet her ex-husband in coach. Jeannie breaking the news to Marty that there is no Edwin and it’s actually his baby wasn’t a shock, but it was still pretty damn intense and will surely be hard for both parties to get past.
