What I’m Watching: The Catch

The Catch: Season 2, Episode 4 “The Family Way” (C)

We’re continuing in the realm of totally unbelievable developments here, with not quite as much wild sex – but still some – and some completely incredible resolutions to the problems brought up last episode. Ben spelled things out properly when he told Alice that of course they weren’t going to shoot each other, yet somehow they managed to work it out that everyone got the money they needed and the FBI was able to arrest both the targets of their original investigation that Ben and Rhys participated in and the mafia boss who wanted to kill Tommy. That’s a whole lot of wins, and they even had time for Val to lead the pursuit of the mysterious woman who has been trying to kill Margot. It makes no sense that Margot would have a daughter she didn’t recognize, though I suppose she could have given her up for adoption and that’s one of the reasons that she’s so mad. We got to meet Ethan, which was a big nothing, mainly because Alice’s debt that she was so worried about seems to already be paid even though Tommy just incurred it. Ben didn’t even try to hide the fact that he’s now working for the FBI from Margot, which seems like an unnecessary and potentially damaging revelation, but it also appears that everyone has forgotten that Margot is a bad guy, as is Rhys, in theory. This show is still entertaining, but I think it’s lost sight of any claims to being legitimate or credible.
