What I’m Watching: Sneaky Pete

Sneaky Pete: Season 2, Episode 2 “Inside Out” (B+)

It really is incredible to see Pete and Marjorie work. The confidence with which Marjorie walked into the prison to point out that the man in Pete’s picture was actually Marius was incredible, and our Pete took it further when he swooped in to give supervisor Carol the meal of her life at the restaurant she always wanted to try, under the guise that she was an esteemed social media influencer, so that he could steal her keycard, break into her office, and make a call from there to get the real Pete released. They did what they wanted to, save for one obnoxious guard’s decision to have Pete dumped in an unusual way so that it wouldn’t come back on them, and now Marius is going to have to race against the clock to find the real Pete and spin him some story that won’t combust his entire operation. He also has to be careful about the fact that, unbeknownst to him, Taylor and Carly have his name, though Taylor is more preoccupied with fielding questions from Jennifer Ferrin’s Joyce and trying to protect his affair that might have raised too many red flags. Both Audrey and Otto aren’t in great shape, taking steps to conceal their actions in deaths that happened around them, and only Julia has things together as she uses her own connections to try to get the money laundering operation going, faced with a tough choice about how to impact her actual business in order to jump-start this very necessary side work.
