Pop Watch: Dirty Sexy Money, Ep 5 "The Bridge"

So here we are – another weekend, another episode of Dirty Sexy Money. This one included parties, a possible pregnancy and, as always, piles of cash and I really want to hear what you thought about it. First though, here's a few of my thoughts:

  • Simon Elder is a mysterious guy. Do you think he's telling the truth about Nick's father and his plans? I'm not sure at all, although I enjoy that he's played by Blair Underwood. Love him.
  • The twins were turning 25(!) but couldn't agree on whether to invite Natalie or not. So they split the party, but not the budget. Jeremy had his on the Brooklyn Bridge (nice) and Juliet had a Marie Antoinette-themed event at home. Which one would you have gone to?
  • The truth came out in Brian's household, when his bible reading caused Gustav to confess to Brian's wife that he's Brian Jr. Eek.

For more of my thoughts, and to leave your own, just read more

  • Juliet looked out for Jeremy when she investigated Natalie's "pregnancy", which was sweet. I love their slightly weird relationship. But, I still can't believe they turned 25 this episode.
  • Karen blackmailing Patrick with her knowledge about Carmelita showed a different side of her. She can be quite underhanded when she wants to be... and she knows exactly what she's doing.
  • Natalie eventually confessed that her pregnancy was oh-so-faux, so Jeremy stripped down to his boxers, stood up on the wall over the traffic, and sang "All By Myself". Loved it. My sides were aching.
  • I'm sorry, but I was totally with Nick on the ant painting.
  • I enjoyed Nick and Brian's vague heart to heart, especially when Brian apologised to him – "I'm sorry I called you Mr Perfect, you are kind of insufferable though with your happiness."
  • So all the Darlings are under one roof again. Ohhh this is going to be even more chaos.
  • I kind of felt for Jeremy when Tripp was lambasting him, although... well... Tripp had a good point. "I wish that I could be someone you loved, Dad, but I can't." Ouch.
  • But then, he asked Tripp for a job. Could it be Jeremy is growing up? Really? And Nick got back to his original plans to help out some charities. Ahh, a happy ending.
  • I'm a little frustrated they didn't actually talk about the whole DNA issue. But never mind, there's plenty more to come and plenty more they need to sort out. So what did you think of this episode? I can't wait to hear your thoughts!
