The Episode Review
It’s great it is Sullivan is seeking assistance and that Cade will get help for him. In the last few months, his addiction has been deteriorating leaving viewers worried. He’s fortunate that he didn’t injure people when he was high.
The Governor is an uncaring man in this witch-hunt, but he did not realize the extent to which Kit will take to help save Randolph’s career. It will be fascinating to see what villainous charms Kit brings to the table, and what strategies Randolph and Kit deal with another issue. What did happen to the phrase “And They lived happily ever since What happened to ‘And they lived happily ever after’? !
