What I’m Watching: The Company You Keep

The Company You Keep: Season 1, Episode 4 “All In” (B+)

Well, one major piece of information just came out in a blunt and irreversible way. Charlie had the perfect reaction to being asked if he knew that Emma was a CIA officer - “I do now” - and he handled it pretty well. The revelation that he was in prison in Nicaragua hardly compares, even if Emma did acknowledge it was a big part of his life that he hadn’t yet shared with her. Charlie still showing up to the campaign event was a sign that he’s very much into Emma and, as he’s expressed to his family, interested in going straight for someone else for the first time in his life. She definitely looked straight at him when he drove past her in the ski mask and appeared to recognize him, but it’s unlikely that she realized it was him and is just playing him right now. Connor and Daphne’s feud is affecting the Nicoletti family in an unproductive way that may force them to con more people and put themselves in danger repeatedly even if they should be done with them by this point. Charlie played it very cool when Daniel Sunjata’s Robert Renway bumped into him looking quite different from his cover alias, and that major theft worked out well since he didn’t implicate himself, even though his father did slip during the job. I was also pleased to recognize Marin Hinkle from “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” as Claire Fox, whose support David now has even though there are already strings attached to it.
