What I’m Watching: Sneaky Pete

Sneaky Pete: Season 2, Episode 3 “Man on the Run” (B+)

I guess I’m going to have to officially start referring to the main character on this show as Marius since it’s going to get mighty confusing otherwise. I’m a huge fan of Ethan Embry’s from his work on “Grace and Frankie” and “Brotherhood,” and I’m so glad that he’s becoming a big part of this season. It turns out that, though he’s very chatty, Pete is a really nice guy, hence the big hug that he gave Marius for saving his life and how he was willing to confess that his mother is indeed still alive in Sedona when he thought Marius was in danger. Marius was smart to involve Julia in the operation enough that he could subtly drop a question about his mom, enabling him to gain valuable information about her location, but he’s so wrapped up in it that he has no idea that Marjorie pulling out is the least of his problems. Desmond Harrington’s Joe snapped a picture with Carly which will surely be making its way to Marius’ phone soon, but she’s also tailing him, now intent on figuring out how she knows the guy who’s actually her cousin Pete by knocking on every motel room door with a pizza in hand. He’ll be able to handle that somehow, but it won’t be easy, and he doesn’t even know that both of his grandparents are in trouble. Otto is now face-to-face with Winslow’s son, who already showed what he’s capable of, and Taylor is going to have to work hard to keep Joyce from testing the blood that he knows to be Audrey’s. There’s certainly a lot going on here, and I’m glad we have a whole season to see how it plays out.
