What I’m Watching: Tulsa King

Tulsa King: Season 1, Episode 8 “Adobe Walls” (B+)

Things are heating up in a big way, and the aftermath of Chickie killing his father means that he’s set his targets firmly on Dwight. What he suggested about coming to Tulsa to break bread could actually have worked for getting them to move past all this, but that’s not what he’s interested in, deciding instead to get rid of an undesirable element. Unfortunately for them, they’re going to do it on Dwight’s turf, and while he’s arming himself against a different threat, it’s absolutely the right time to have an army of eager soldiers trained for battle. Dwight was bold and effective when he and Tyson got pulled over, and that act was enough to infuriate Kielan, who doesn’t seem like the kind of person who acts rationally when he’s angry. Stacy was ready to scorch earth following Roxy’s murder, and stopping by to warn Dwight to move on put her right in the line of fire. I do hope she doesn’t die since Andrea Savage is such a terrific part of this show, and that law-criminal dynamic is very worthwhile. Dwight just keeps making friends wherever he goes, and while Margaret is becoming very fond of him, her ex-husband was not. It’s quite surprising that Tina is now considering moving to Tulsa, something that may actually put them in more danger at the moment. Armand is pretty set on not going anywhere, an idea that got his wife scared and angry enough that she’s ready to leave him.
