The Player: Episode Six

NBC, what the fuck is wrong with you?

There are just three episodes left. Jennifer fucking Lopez is going to replace this great series.

What a travesty.

I don’t know what it was about it, but I loved this episode. My favorite so far.

Alex’s niece is hiding out from her Mom. I should have seen what would inevitably happen, but I didn’t. Nice sleight of hand.

Former players …

… or what? Now we’ll probably never know!

This episode had a villain so much in the vein of The Blacklist, I expected a passing cameo by James Spader!

That didn’t happen, but we did get …

… Richard Roundtree!

I love TV shows that bring back the classy classics.

Look closely …

… she still has the Apple Watch on.

Great splash work:

And a big surprise ending …

… that reveals this show’s format is a hell of a lot more flexible than we’ve been led to believe!

Dahyum …

… Snipes is so damn suave.

And we get another twist at the end …

… which makes me wonder who is really being played.

I don’t have the end credits, but whoever did the score for this episode, it was magnificent. It creeped me the hell out at the end.

NBC has been stupid and has, according to press reports so far, killed this series.

There might be just nine episodes.

Go catch on and catch up.

IRL shit delayed me watching this, hence the delayed post. I wish I’d been able to see it sooner. I really loved this one.
