Entourage Recap: Victory and Defeat - Page 2
I have been remiss in not mentioning the work that Scott Caan is doing on this show. I will begin to rectify that mistake this week. Anyway, Caan appeared on screen twice to do Scott Caan things and out-act Eric Connolly. Not hard to do but warrants mentioning. In any event, Caan has absolutely nailed this stereotypical Hollywood role with typical Scott Caan aplomb. He only has one pitch, but boy is it a good one.
Eric was slightly more absurd than usual this week. He started by receiving a gift from Sloane’s ex-stepmother (whom he slept with last week) and trying to figure out if he can do business with her. Melinda Clarke did a decent job of making E uncomfortable and acting more attractive than she really is. While at lunch with Clarke, Johnny Galecki stopped by to discuss his dinner with Sloane and to give Eric the impression that he was sleeping with Sloane. Eric responds to this revelation with grace and class by telling Scott that if he doesn’t fire Galecki, then Eric is leaving their company. Why not.
Ari began his week by discussing with his lawyer about the potential terms of his divorce. After discovering that he could lose his company if his wife decides to get back the 11 million dollars she put into it, Ari decides to pay his wife a visit to discuss things. When we go to Ari’s house, we see that his wife is cooking with Bobby Flay who is getting quite handsy. Ari quickly deduces that Flay is in the house during a brief conversation with his wife at the door. Then, it happened: Ari became Ari again. He started to yell obscenities and threatened Flay with bodily harm. It was fleeting (he quickly returned to sad Ari), but his actions made me laugh out loud. Thank you, Ari for letting remember the good times, however brief that feeling was.
We have only two episodes before the show
mercifully ends. What did you think of this week’s episode? What do the boys need to do to close strong?
