The week got off to a good start with a balance of humor (in the form of Lulu and Maxie as well as Scrubs) and the dark, brewing mob war.
After Lulu proved to Kate she was able to hold her own, Kate gave her a chance as her second assistant. It became quite apparent Lulu was out of her element while Maxie was at home in the fashion world. Kate wasn't interested in any complaints Lulu had and insisted all she cared about was the quality of the completed work.
It's actually fun to see Maxie and Lulu competing on a level playing field instead of shallow name calling and slapping. It's also refreshing to see Lulu actually have to struggle for something. I'm looking forward to her finding out about Maxie and Spinelli's budding relationship. Surely, it will drive her batty.
Spin adhered to Jason's orders and followed Sonny all over town. The 'old movie detective' shtick has yet to get old, especially when Anderson's physical comedy is thrown in the mix. Sonny wasn't oblivious to his tail, however, and toward the end of the episode called Spin out.
This was after he upset Jax and Carly by visiting Michael and unconsciously gave Claudia the information she needed to order her hit on him. When she told Ian that he would be in his warehouse accepting a coffee shipment on Friday, with few guards, he declared it would be an easy job. Jerry stood by, looking very concerned. I'm wondering how and if he's going to step in to foil the plan. Will his interference make things worse, or will he chance his brother's rage if he does nothing? Rage I'm still not sure would exist. Jax is pretty fed up with Sonny and while he might not condone shooting him, having him out of his life would be a major bonus.
