Too much too handle. This week’s Sunday night line up was so next level I needed a few days to process all the drama. It was Emmy night, but it was also Dexter night, Breaking Bad night, and Ray Donovan night. Might I add that two of those shows were airing their finales…which made it even harder to decide which one to watch first.
Primetime Emmy’s had my early on in the evening with their live coverage of the red carpet. I mean who wants to miss that? There were some gorgeous ensembles…but like any other red carpet it’s more fun to spot the worst dressed. Right when I saw her, I knew she would be on Fashion Police…and girl did she deserve to be locked up! Zosia Mamet of HBO’s Girls had the worst dressed outfit of the night…she looked horrendous. The cops on FP didn’t disagree….the worst dressd of the night was Mamet with the awkward black plating over her breasts…and the fact that she claimed her dress was custom but Georgey proved she was wrong by showing us a runway picture! Oooh girl.
Overall, the show was the usual bore. Neil Patrick Harris was funny…at times…but I would’ve enjoyed a Tina Fey/Amy Phoeler combo instead. Speaking of the two crazies, they literally stole the openng monologue when they started heckling from the two front seats at NPH! Love those two! It would get awkward every 20 minutes when they had a memorial moment for some of the people that we lost this year (James Gandolfini,Cory Monteith). My fave shows didn’t even end up winning…I love Clair Danes but does she really need another award for playing a crazy b****?? Khaleesi!!! Khaleesi needs an Emmy!!
Anna Gunn who plays Skylar White on AMCs Breaking Bad deserved her Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Award. She absolutely killed this last season of BB…glad she got that one!
Speaking of Breaking Bad…there’s only one more episode left…last Sunday was absolutely cray cray. Things are starting to wrap up…but surprisingly we still have no idea what’s going to happen to Walter White or Jesse Pinkman. Walter is hiding out in a cabin in Nebraska. He’s freezing his meth balls off but needs to get his cash to his family. He finds out from the guy that’s bringing him supplies that Skylar had to pick up a job to pay for the bills. Walter decides to wrap the cash in an “Ensure” box and mail it to Walt Jr’s friend Louis. Walt Jr gets a call at school from what he thinks is his aunt. He gets to the phone and we find out Walter is on the other end in some dingy dark bar. Walter asks his son to accept the money and tells him how much he misses the family. He tells him where he’ll ship it to…but in the end Walt Jr freaks out and yells at his father for killing Hank. The teachers come to Walt Jr’s rescue…Walter then reaches for the phone and calls the DEA offices. He tells them he’s Walter White and he wants to speak to the office in charge of his case. Within minutes agents swarm the local bar…the camera pans over to Walter’s seat with his glass half full…but Walt is nowhere to be found.
Moving to Dexter….WTF Dexter!!! Dexter’s series finale was on Sunday and it was absolutely terrible. Some people were satisfied with the endng, some people were left wondering what the hell happened to Dexter and why would the story end this way? First off, I always had a feeling Deb was going to die. It’s totally understandable, someone needed to die, I mean it’s the series finale, something epic is supposed to go down. And it did, in the second last episode Deb gets shot down. Nothing life threatening, well it was serious, but once Deb got to the hospital, the doctors told her she was fine and it would only take some time before she was back to normal. Dexter visits her at the hospital and all is well, she begs him to return to Harrison and Hannah…and he promises her he will. Here’s the thing with Deb…everything happened so quickly in the last episode there wasn’t enough time to process what just happened. After doctors said she was stable…and after she told Joey she loved him…she ended up having a brain anneurism and was put on life support. The doctors said she would never recover. Like what!? Why wouldn’t they just kill her when she was shot…why take her through all that to put her on life support? It just didn’t flow and it didn’t hit me that she was actually gone. There’s a huge storm about to hit Miami…and Dexter decides to kidnap Deb from the hospital and take her to his boat. Which was a really weird thing for him to do because that’s how he killed all those people. He throws her off the side of the boat and then the storm hits and everyone assumes Dexter is dead to. Like it just sounds so incredibly stupid…it’s like a soap opera death. From the other side of the world, Hannah googles Dexter and reads that he’s missing and presumed dead. So now she just has to take care of her crazy ass and a 4 year old. I just expected so much more from the Dexter writers…and I really wanted a happy ending for Dexter. Not because I’m a softy…I get it, he’s a killer, but this entire season was about Dexter finding the other side of his life…and he found love…and he raised a cool kid…and then he just leaves it all again to work at a log factory in Alaska? It just didn’t work with me.
Personally I wanted a different ending.
