Saint Debbie/Ep 10 - Installment 4
In this portion of the episode, the best part I think is the conversation between Paul and Alva at Debbie's porch. It seems like they've switched roles here somehow, well, no, it's Alva who is not his usual self at all. I felt like Paul was feeling the frustration he had when he usedto work for the church. He's trying to prove his point to the unusually skeptical Alva here. He knows that Alva has fallen for Debbie but Paul knows the grave consequence of letting the whole town down will be much more catastrophic than breaking Alva's heart.
Paul is especially compassionate here towards Danny, concerned how devastated he will be when he finds out that his sister isn't really a saint. Paul's got it all made for him here, balancing the entire town on his shoulders and trying hard to open Alva's eyes so that Alva will realize that his gut instinct is leading him on wrong. Still, Debbie's pheromones are stronger, clouding Alva's senses, especially his natural investigative self.
Good thing there's a girl called Evie. Finally some help for Paul. This ex cop whose pretty face always gets in the way of how people percieve her on first meeting. Paul here, is working on his gut instinct and have not had the chance to really investigate the facts, but Evie is the one who really cracked this case. Interviewing the local officer from town, she gets away with some information that they can work with. She obviously knows how to talk to fellow officers as this officer gave her the respect she deserved.
The old lady was stupefied, stunned and I think regretful for saying that to her. Then she puts her foot deeper into her mouth when a car roars up the drive to the trailer and out comes the man who threw the snake at Debbie.
The plot thickens.....
