With only two episodes left, Episodes amped up the conflicts a little bit more before unleashing the final conflict that will surely reverberate in the season finale. As the shooting of the pilot draws to a near, the Lincolns’ marriage falls apart, Beverly moving out due to presumptions she makes about Morning. In the meantime, Beverly openly admits that Pucks! is bad while Merc is as oblivious as ever.
Up until now, neither Sean nor Beverly has done anything too improper. Beverly sleeping with Matt, though, is over the line and makes Beverly look awful. The build-up to this is perfect. We saw tension between Matt and Beverly throughout the season, so it wasn’t entirely unexpected, and yet it wasn’t expected either.
