Or do I mean ewwww? This utterly riveting episode began with Laure, Pierre and co investigating two frankly horrible deaths – one suicide, one violent murder and both very unsettling. One of them so much so, in fact, that even Shady Josephine looked unnerved. And tried to assuage her pain with some new shoes.
The ickiness continued with the cops’ visit to a club so incredibly seedy I’m embarrassed just thinking about it, where an entirely different type of pain relief was going on. Ewwww again.
But, grossness aside – or perhaps grossness included, I’m not sure – this was yet another fantastic episode of Spiral. Laure continued to go loopy, Pierre finally (if unwillingly) rediscovered both his spine and his prosecutor skills – and was kind of magnificent in the process – and Josephine went shopping. Once she’d helped out with a little light extortion.
The writers even gifted the shipper audience (assuming it’s not just me) with a moment of understanding between Pierre and Laure which I’m choosing to interpret as something much more. Never mind kissing journalists – encore de “Paure”, s’il vous plait.
