Well, SPOILER ALERT, we finally met Roderick and he’s superhot. And cutie-patootie Mike was beaten and stabbed and came thisclose to dying at the hands of Joe’s minions, which hasn’t stopped internet speculation that HE’s actually been a follower all along (discuss among yourselves). And while the whole show just keeps descending further and further into a fetid, boggy swamp of depravity, I think they managed to out-do themselves last night when sad-sack psycho-hunk Charlie offered himself up as a sacrifice to Joe for screwing up yet again. “I want my life to mean something,” he moaned, as followers spread out a plastic mat beneath him. “I want to matter,” he whimpered as he handed Joe the knife. “YOU WILL ALWAYS MATTER,” Joe whispered to him in the most homoerotic death scene I’ve ever witnessed. Seriously, Joe was like the Bachelor giving Charlie a rose. Except the rose was shiv to the kidney, and instead of retiring to the jacuzzi, poor Charlie bled out on the plastic mat. Then Roderick choked some girl and Joe and Emma made sweet, sweet love (actually not sweet at ALL, strike that) and thus ended another twisted night of primetime torture porn. HOW IS THIS SHOW EVEN ON TV?
