Common Joe Season 1 Episode 9 Evaluate: Sound Like Mail Man


I knew Leon Montgomery would come by when it mattered essentially the most!

Leon and Joe have been severely outnumbered after they approached Nicolai’s cabin on Common Joe Season 1 Episode 9, and but they discovered themselves with a major leg up earlier than all of it went downhill.

One second, it seemed like perhaps they’d pull off the inconceivable, however when it rains, it pours, and similar to that, they obtained caught in Nicolai’s orbit, and the sociopathic mobster had the higher hand.

Not a single a part of me was ready for Leon to indicate up and present out the best way he did, however he is all the time had it in him.

Leon will get put down quite a bit, to the purpose the place it might probably really feel like a operating joke greater than the rest, but it surely felt like he began to purchase into it. And positive, he is had some bumbling moments, and perhaps he wasn’t as stone-cold as his pals, however Leon isn’t any coward.

A cowardly man would not do half the issues Leon has performed, together with assist his finest pal when he might simply run for the hills. Leon is a courageous soul and a great shot, which he repeatedly proved whereas within the wilderness.

Joe and Leon splitting up had catastrophe written throughout it, but it surely labored of their favor as a result of they most likely would have been caught quite a bit earlier if that they had each gone into the cabin collectively.

Leon by no means appeared like an amazing marksman, but it surely’s not as if we have seen him taking pictures quite a bit, both. Not till the flashback, that’s, which noticed a really assured Leon when he had a nail gun in his hand.

And that is the factor with Leon. He can lack confidence, which might be mistaken for spinelessness. However he is an clever and succesful man, particularly when he faucets into his confidence.

I’ve all the time thought Leon was a vital piece of the pal group and would come by in an enormous approach, and he positive did right here, killing many males and being the primary individual to make Arina seem like an everyday individual and never the Terminator.

He did every part proper, and it was a very long time coming for somebody to offer him his flowers!

And I am joyful that individual was Contact as a result of, at that second, within the darkness of the woods, which might now not defend them from their greatest fears, they needed to get sincere with one another.

The friendships on Common Joe are so particular, and it is a large a part of what makes the story work. You need to really feel the love in these relationships, or issues would not make sense.

However due to the unimaginable chemistry between the leads, it is sensible for Contact and Leon to place their lives on the road for Joe and Jennifer. The connection dynamics really feel earned. They’re all household on the finish of the day, and that is been clear since Common Joe Season 1 Episode 1.

Contact has spent the previous couple of episodes off with Talford and making an attempt to return to phrases with the guilt and disgrace from his previous, all whereas detoxing in actual time and making an attempt to be there for a very powerful folks in his life.

It has been quite a bit, and but, it seems as if he is come out the opposite facet.

There’s one thing actually poignant about seeing grownup friendships’ complexities and sweetness. And when Leon simply requested Contact if he was by being a junkie, it wasn’t malicious or merciless. It was merely a query born from a spot of affection between two males who take into account one another brothers.

Contact has been so secretive about his struggles, however he clearly wasn’t fooling these round him as a lot as he thought he was. Now whether or not or not Leon and the others, assuming they know, ought to have performed extra to assist Contact is definitely one thing that may be up for debate.

However now that it is out within the open, and Contact cannot conceal from it, what comes subsequent it is what’s vital. Assuming all of them make it out of this alive, Contact will want that help system to get him by as a result of habit is a lifelong battle.

For his or her half, whereas everybody was operating by the woods, Joe was bunkered down within the cabin, and Angela was nonetheless within the hospital, considering how precisely she wound up within the predicament she discovered herself in.

Realizing that life was as soon as completely different for Angela, and the trail she had been strolling all of a sudden veered into one thing else brings lots of issues about her into perspective.

She loves Joe, and he or she loves her household. That is not a query. However out of everybody all through this case, she’s been the one most in opposition to issues, preferring to remain throughout the confines of the life she’s constructed for herself.

Whereas Joe was able to hurl himself into hazard for the potential of a windfall and a brand new life, Angela was content material with how issues have been and would have a lot somewhat run off to cover than keep again and topic her household to extra ache and struggling.

I do not know who Tony is or the place he got here from, however his job was to voice all Angela’s deep-seated ideas out loud. As a result of as a lot as she loves her husband, he’s undoubtedly the rationale she was sitting in that hospital mattress.

Possibly that is slightly harsh as a result of Joe did not ask for any of this. He did not ask for Teddy to become involved with Nicolai, nor did he ask for Dimitri and his lackey to ambush him and break his fingers.

However Joe has had clear alternatives to get out. To run so far as doable, alert the police, or do any variety of issues that would not contain additional trauma.

If you wish to dive deep into Joe’s selections and whether or not they have been proper or unsuitable, that might most likely be fairly the dissertation.

And hindsight is all the time 20/20 as a result of I’ve discovered myself considering Joe has performed the very best he can with a crap scenario whereas additionally recognizing if Angela selected to stroll away from him on the finish of all this, she could be effectively inside her rights.

Do I consider that can occur? No. However the dialog with Tony wasn’t performed by chance, and with nothing however time when you’re laid up within the hospital, how do you not take into consideration each second that is led you to your present scenario?

Once more, assuming everybody makes it out alive, what comes subsequent might be somewhat attention-grabbing as a result of whereas they’ve solely lied and killed to guard themselves, they’re now not the identical folks they have been earlier than all this began.

These folks within the flashbacks are lengthy gone, they usually can by no means carry them again. So how do they reconcile the folks they have been with the folks they’ve change into?

Further, Common Info

  • I assume they’re launching this Cathy storyline with the medicine to arrange for a possible season 2, however it is a bit irritating how disconnected she is from the principle storyline.

  • I am an enormous fan of Nicolai and Joe not assembly till the very finish of the season. It ramps up the anticipation to insane ranges.

  • Angela has some supreme energy to have a random man with a sore butt cheek prepared to assist her conceal a useless physique, no questions requested! Additionally, Angela is just too sensible to place issues collectively in regards to the man with the service canine so rapidly.

  • I can not watch Joe and Jennifer tearfully say goodbye to at least one one other anymore! It is sufficient, Common Joe!

  • Arina is in a tricky spot, clearly, however from one mom to a different, assist Jennifer!

  • The task was to run over the mobster within the street, and Talford took it to a different stage.

  • I obtained slightly teary-eyed throughout Contact and Leon’s second within the woods. I’m such a sucker for the friendship between the three males on this present.

In some way, we have reached the top of Common Joe Season 1, and whereas it is unhappy the trip is nearly over, I am excited to see the way it ends!

Bounce into the feedback to let me know what you considered this hour and the place the season will finish!
