Charlie welcomes a new bundle of joy and Ken says goodbye to an old pain in the ass in the Aquarius season finale. “Old Ego is a Too Much Thing” brings the first season to an exciting close.
Charlie suspects Sadie of betraying Emma in “(Please Let Me Love You And) It Won’t Be Wrong” and goes all Manson on her while a documentary crew slithers around the compound capturing Charlie’s creeptopia.
In Your Mother Should Know, Manson’s mom visits the Aquarius world. Charlie has some really strong feelings about his mother and experiences vicious emotional swings while she’s around. They chew up scenes together.
Aquarius takes a look at journalistic ethics in It’s Alright Ma (I’m Only Bleeding). A Hispanic editor at The Times discovers there is a closet Cuban detective working at LAPD.
Aquarius gets bloody with a Christmas cop-killer on the loose, one targeting police officers who patrol in black-white pairs. ‘Why?’ indeed.
In this week’s Aquarius, Hodiak digs for clues into a missing woman while Ken digs up the past to destroy any evidence she even existed.
The biggest intrigue from this week, what’s with the guy that killed Novo? Was it just for the fancy ring, or is there more going on there?
There is nothing overly clever about the crimes on this show, no need for a specially gifted genius or technology driven teams to solve cases. The crimes, and the difficulties solving them, are rooted in social ills.
If real change were easy, everyone would be doing it. We all deal with the stress of transformation in different ways, if at all. If there’s a more destructive way to deal with change, Hodiak is looking for it. For now, drinking, driving, and beatings will have to do.
Aquarius gets better and better and so do the performances from the cast of Home is Where You’re Happy. David Duchovny continues his master class in character as Det. Hodiak closes cases while losing his son.
Charlie Manson makes his classic demo Never Say Never to Always in this week’s episode of Aquarius.
NBC’s latest cop drama, Aquarius, sets the sinister Charlie Manson against a conservative LAPD tight ass played by X-Files’ David Duchovny, as Detective Sam Hodiak. Hey, the music is extraordinary and the show is a lot of fun. Gethin Anthony creates a spectacular, scene chewing, Charlie Manson. He is to Aquarius what Jaws was to Jaws.
