What I’m Watching: Perpetual Grace, LTD

Perpetual Grace, LTD: Season 1, Episode 6 “When Doves Cry” (B)

This episode didn’t involve nearly as many plotlines as previous hours have, which made it moderately less enthralling for me. Ma sharing her life story from what she expected to be her final resting place helped to shed some light on her past and her surprisingly progressive views in certain respects. After spending a good deal of time criticizing Hector’s novel, Pa managed to get Hector on rhythm so that they could work together and cut down the tree, resulting in a very reassuring rescue which ensured that Hector’s family wouldn’t be harmed as revenge for Ma being suffocated underground. Hector’s wife wasn’t happy with him at all, and fortunately he’s making the right choice now by putting his family first. The three women driving down the road unlucky enough to be held up by Pa aren’t likely to give in quietly, especially considering their own investment in tracking him down, and perhaps Pa will be feeling a bit more charitable after helping Hector get back on the right track. Walker arresting someone other than both James and Paul was certainly not what he wanted, and the pager going off on the ride back is not good news for anyone. Paul and James celebrating their victory back at home does feel premature, and getting the money they were trying to steal seems like it’s not going to be as easy as planned either. Pa and Ma still have to get back over the border, but they’re much closer to that than either their real son or fake son know.
