Yes, there almost cavalier about the way they reveal back story. Suddenly we will get some tidbit like the fact that Candace was molested by one of Hanna's exes.They work these fleeting quips or lines into the scripts that end up telling us a lot about the characters' back-stories.
She's an interesting character. She treads the line between manipulative ice queen and psycho.Veronica's story (poor girl from Southside Chicago works her way out of drug addiction to become a successful attorney and having a "picture perfect" family) would sound admirable if you didn't know what a nightmare she is, but I can almost understand her need to control everything and everyone when you know her lowest point in the past was when she lost control of herself via drugs.
But why does he say all of his lines in a voice that is barely above a whisper? Angry, sad, bitter, scared--it's all the same low talking, mumble. And don't get me started on that one facial expression of his--mouth slightly open, forehead scrunched--when Wyatt is feeling anger, sadness, bitterness, fear . . .It's a chicken-egg dilemma for me. Is O'Connell's questionable, often repetitive material keeping him from showing his acting skills, or are his acting skills so limited that they only write this repetitive stuff for him?
Well, it shouldn't be too long before I get to find out.Without giving too much away, I will say he did some of his best work during several episodes in season five. Had they gotten a better grasp of his strengths as an actor? Was it the sort of stuff the writers felt he could handle? Unfortunately, you will have to wait a while to see this, but it's...well, pure HAHN.
She seems to be muddling through. I guess by now you have met Benny's business partner/friend Mitch. He's no slouch in the handsome-guy department, and another of those "supporting characters to keep an eye on" with the colorful past that comes out in dribs and drabs.Poor Veronica. How many more times is she going to have to have tow truck shop sex with Benny before she can get her hands on that car? It must be rough.
He's been in a couple of episodes, but I haven't really paid much attention to him so far.I guess by now you have met Benny's business partner/friend Mitch. He's no slouch in the handsome-guy department, and another of those "supporting characters to keep an eye on" with the colorful past that comes out in dribs and drabs.
I like the sound of that.I'd say it's almost on par with the secret of Wyatt's hit-and-run as a generator of drama. So don't write it off as "just another plot twist".
