Finally, Mike reveals that that he never went to Harvard. Rachel slaps him across the face, and then, the two kiss. The series ends with a sex scene that is unusually explicit for the USA Network. Thus, we have been set up for the third season episodes, which are due to premier in summer 2013.
Previous episodes like “Epidemiology” and “Horror Fiction in Seven Spooky Steps” have lampooned genre films and provided some of the series’ most memorable moments, “Paranormal Parentage” was just…boring. The story was subpar and the meta-references were practically winking at themselves. Is it possible to be nostalgic for something that aired less than a year ago?
Savino discovers he has an even bigger problem, when his banker storms in to inform him that the accounts holding the loan money for the Tumbleweed have been cleaned out. It seems that Rizzo has done with the money what he’d do with any other windfall – sent half back to the boys in Chicago and put the rest to work on the street.
And I have to say, while I admired Carrie-Anne Moss coming into this series, so far it’s been Sarah Jones as Mia Rizzo who’s been a revelation. She combines sexiness and steeliness in a way that makes her believable as a woman surviving in what’s very much a man’s world, and she has one of the great husky voices, on a par with Kathleen Turner’s.
