'Friday Night Lights' recap: Sucker Punch
Tami continues to mentor Epyck, coaxing out the tough girl's soft side when she invites her over for dinner during which Gracie Bell works her Brian Eno charm. But when Laurel accuses Epyck of stealing money from her purse, the subsequent meeting between the three escalates and finds Epyck accidentally shoving Tami's head into a plate glass window. Ouch. Tami protests -- "Y'all it was just an accident!"-- but Epyck gets hauled off by the police and sent to juvie. And thus Tami Taylor's Dangerous Minds Gangster's Paradise dreams are dashed.
Becky works a different dream, and that is the one where the teen abortionee takes a job at a strip club (okay so she was only filling in temporarily for Mindy) and reconciling herself to her boyfriend's abortion-protesting mom. Yes, it's a very specific dream, but it's one I'm totally behind, because I am completely charmed by Becky under the influence of Mindy. I wish Almodovar would do a movie titled "Women Under the Influence of Ole Sis." But, sorry to bury this particular lede: Mindy needed the night off of work because... she is pregnant again! Pregnant by the "nacho smelling" Billy Riggins. Mmmm, nacho baby.
