Just as it seems The Kid has nothing to worry about anymore and that everyone is good and happy – once again, his life is blown up.

It was all going so well. Ari’s body was disposed of, Carlton’s debt with the brothers, Nikos and Savvas, would get paid on Monday, and The Kid even got to hook up with one of the hotel staff members, Andrea. However, what kind of show would we have if things went too well, right?
So to begin, when Carlton meets with Nikos and Savvas, they get to the money issue after some back and forth, which can come off a bit racist. Which, with The Kid saying he’ll pay, the only problem might be that Savvas says the money needs to be in cash. It’s not ideal and might be difficult, but it could be done.
How about the team? Well, Todd does feel uneasy about The Kid giving Carlton money, but The Kid and Carlton have been through so much over the past few days that he doesn’t care. As for Herschel? Things between him and the kid are cool. They work out, have some small talk, and are chill. This leaves Billie, who, as a means to apologize, The Kid says she can open for him at Madison Square Garden. As you can imagine, this is a huge leap from her doing YouTube or getting her jokes getting rejected by The Kid as of late.
But, while life is good, or at least on the upswing, then comes Gene revealing he has a video of The Kid dumping Ari’s body. With that coming just before The Kid hits the stage, so comes the question of whether Gene is someone to worry about or if he’ll maintain this non-threatening appearance.

On The Fence
Nikos and Savvas
Carlton’s interactions with the Greek gangster brothers, Nikos and Savvas, gave us nothing. Yes, they are potentially violent and pose a threat to Carlton and potentially The Kid. However, they come off so generic that they aren’t worth taking note of, especially in comparison to Ari, who at least had some kind of humor and flair to him.
The Pending Gene Drama
Gene presenting that video complicated The Kid’s life but doesn’t make you fiend for the next episode. Why? Well, as much as Gene could be a problem, at the same time he is painted as someone so innocent that the worst thing he could do is tell someone he isn’t supposed to because it is the right thing to do. This could be how Todd and the rest find out, but that may not push the series in a positive direction.
At least, it won’t make it so the story can finally catch up to the performances some of the actors show themselves capable of.
