What I’m Watching: Swimming with Sharks

Swimming with Sharks: Season 1, Episode 5 “Chapter Five” (B+)

It turns out I was wrong and that Lou was very much responsible for Alex’s death, showing up at his door with a warm offer of (cold) cookies and cream before pushing him into the pool when he started to feel sick. Unfortunately for Lou, getting rid of Travis just meant he had more time to focus all of his energy on finding out everything about Lou, which turned out to be easily accessible and entirely damning. Meredith was particularly furious when she found out that Joyce was turning over authority over her projects to Lou, and Marty was very surprised to get that angry phone call. Travis didn’t wait to get Marty’s input on what to do before calling the cops, and now we’re at the point where Lou has been completely found out with no doubts about what she did. That’s not how I saw things going, and even if she’s one step ahead of the law hiding out far from anyone who would be able to find her, I’m sure she won’t be able to resist the temptation of exacting whatever kind of revenge she still hopes to seek. Offering to be Joyce’s egg donor was a bold move, and Joyce was quick to distance herself from someone who got much more under her skin than she’s willing to admit. Lou didn’t exactly endear herself to Redmond, but it’s still possible that he’ll influence this situation in a way that may complicate things and make a victory for Lou still possible.
