Private Eyes ep 9

Well, Becca can just naff off, can’t she?

Not content with, er, distracting Shade from other matters – and by “other matters” I mean Angie, distracting him from Angie – for one night, she summons him from work to give her some sort of pep talk at her audition (FFS). Her would-be boss/ Producer immediately succumbs to the Shade charm – she’s only human – and somehow, this turns a job for Becca into a job for Becca and Matt together (Nooooo!) because Angie and Matt have been getting on too well and need to fit in a fight before next week’s season finale.

So fight they do, solving some nonsense mystery – magicians? unlicensed drugs? antique monkeys? Who even cares? This is ALL ABOUT THE SHIP – along the way, and distressing me with the mere thought that their discord might last more than a single episode. I cannot deal with Shade and Angie breaking up forever!

Thank goodness then that I don’t have to. Because Shade is lovely, he offers a bottle-shaped olive branch; because Nolan, unlike Becca, is clear enough about his speedbump status to get right out of the way (and take Mazhari with him) so Angie can meet her partner half-way without any witnesses; and because Private Eyes is the BEST, they make up, it’s adorable and I’m going to miss this show a ridiculous amount when season 1 finishes up next week. I LOVE IT.

    I do not care for Becca. And Shade should have told her to eff off when he was summoned to provide moral support at the audition. Mind you, I thought Angie over-reacted a little, and in consequence The Fight looked a little shoe-horned in, as if the writers were determined to give us a conflict but without anything really being at stake. But that certainly isn’t getting in the way of my love for this show.

    Incidentally, was anyone else expecting “Your father’s death. It wasn’t an accident” before now? Maybe it’s being saved for season 2.

      Oh yes – was there not a moment (maybe a couple of eps ago? I can’t remember) when there was an “about your father’s death…” line of some sort from someone? (Specifics are obviously my strength.) It was really obvious that they were going down that route but then it was as if they suddenly changed their minds; they didn’t elaborate and then never mentioned it again. Maybe it is for s2 – which is 18 eps, yay!

      Of course Shade should have told Becca to eff off but it seems to be an established part of their dynamic (I assume left over from their marriage?) that she demands attention and he’s her personal cheerleader. Angie had a right to be a bit annoyed but I think we all know she got *massively* annoyed for green-eyed/ hurt reasons rather than Shade putting personal business over work. I SHIP THEM SO MUCH.
