Review - Terriers Season 1 Episode 12 Quid Pro Quo

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! I'll keep this brief since no one will read this and I don't have time either.

In many ways, the characters of Terriers are like the show itself in the real world. The characters on the show precipitously hang onto their lives in the most dire of circumstances. Terriers, likewise, is clinging on to dear life as the ratings are still in the toilet. The difference, however, is that Hank and Britt have to stay alive for the show to keep going while FX certainly doesn't need Terriers.

"Quid Pro Quo" slings a whole bunch of plot developments, including a brilliant kicker in the end. Throughout the episode, there is a dark, foreboding tone, with the possibility of something bad happening at every turn. People are deceiving each other, placing trust in others, and you know something will go wrong. Hank and Laura discover that Zeitland is gobbling Ocean Beach for a new airport. Jason also gets caught up as he's the architect for a piece of land Zeitland wants. By the end of the episode, he's dead, as Councilman Albrecht  is in Zeitland's pocket.

So now what? Hank buys a bunch of guns and Britt still has the battery charges pending. And what about Gretchen and Katie? I hope we get a proper conclusion next week.

Score: 9.5/10
