Review - United States of Tara Season 3 Episode 10 Train Wreck

To me, "Train Wreck" ranks as one of the most jarring episodes of the series, and ranks high among television episodes in general. This is where things get bad, and it's hard to imagine how dark this show could go in the final two episodes.

With Lionel killed in a car crash, Marshall is sent into a slump and everyone, including Tara, tries to console him. The result is that Tara doesn't receive the immediate attention she needs, and Bryce inevitably comes out. Toni Collete is, as always, in her portrayal of alters. Bryce is truly menacing and is quite scary. There is further fallout once people start realizing the truth: Tara won't change. Kate decides to move out and get serious with Evan, Neil wants Charmaine to cut all ties with Tara, and Max and Marshall turn towards each other for support. In the middle of all this, Tara is left out, trapped in a body currently controlled by Bryce.

So, with once two episodes left in the series, there are a looming question. Will the show continue down this dark road and end in despair, or will the show--and Tara--finally turn the corner and end on the bright side?

Score: 9.5/10
