In collaboration with a few of my favorite blogger gal pals, we are watching and recapping the fabulous new show, The Paradise, now on PBS for all of you lovely readers. Now, I am assuming that you are all caught up with the show and are ready to dish. Am I right? If so, fabulous & I can’t wait to get started. If not, then you can watch the latest episode on PBS.org.
There were really two big main plot lines this week on The Paradise that I feel are worth mentioning.
First off, we have dear sweet Katherine trying to woo back Moray. This one in particular had my screaming at my television because to be honest, I am not her biggest fan and to make things worse, Katherine decided she wanted to play hard to get. In true first grade fashion, Katherine ignores Moray and decides to put her money where her mouth is by spending her dollars everywhere else besides at The Paradise. Oh, the horror! Luckily for her, her evil plan worked and she definitely got his attention, although as we all suspect, Moray has the hots for another lady! So scandalous!
The other second plot line this episode is Moray’s plan to expand and the hiccups he encounters. His plan to expand the business into the next door barber shop backfires when Mr. Burrough insists on being made partner in The Paradise. Moray tries to move past it but realizes that Mr. Burrough means business when he refuses to sell his property on any other terms but the one stated. Jonas advises him to put a clause in the contract and together, they bring him in, and it’s no surprise when he starts to act a fool. My favorite line of the night, “You’re a barber, in a suit, that doesn’t fit,” comes from Miss Pauline after he fails miserable at wooing her numerous times. Things start to get really interesting when he mentions to Jonas that he may know a little something about the former Mrs. Moray’s death. Oh, how I love a good blackmail! And then there is a sudden disappearance. I am so curious to see how this pans out!
Other than those two main story lines, there are really only a few odds and ends that are worth mentioning. Clara is on a warpath and is convinced that her dear old Mr. Moray is in love with Denise … which fingers crossed, is where I think the show is headed. There is one particular scene toward the end of the episode that definitely left me wondering and eagerly awaiting some close interaction between the two. And speaking of Denise, much to my surprise, she finally has an idea that backfires. Maybe she doesn’t have the Midas touch like once believed?
So, that about wraps it up. What are your thoughts for next week?
Here are my thoughts:
– The love triangle will gather some depth and Mr. Moray will have some very hard decisions to make ahead.
– We find out what happened to Mr. Burrough. And was Jonas involved like it’s implied?
– I’m sure this will take a while, but I am so eager to find out the real story behind the former Mrs. Moray’s death.
And those are my thoughts. I hope you have enjoyed my recap and my thoughts on the episode, and until next time, that’s all folks!
