Chapter 53: "Jawbreaker"
JUST LET KEVIN AND FANGS BE HAPPY TOGETHER!!!
CW: Kidnapping, chloroforming, cult behavior, gaslighting, drug use, drug-induced psychosis, parental neglect, death
So we did a whole lot of set up last week to…do a whole lot more setup. I mean, it’s not the worst episode of TV we’ve ever seen, but what exactly got accomplished? And is it just us or do things seem weirdly disjointed? We know there was an extended hiatus to deal with the passing of Luke Perry, and we’re just wondering if maybe we’re trying to shove a bunch of stories together to pad time. Still, we’re stoked for the final twist at the end, Kurtz’s creepy mannerisms, and Betty’s emotional confrontation with her own dark feelings. But mostly watching Fangs and Kevin stare lovingly at each other. We can only dream for them this week on The Doghouse!
