#TooCloseToHome S2 Ep4: A Happy Invasion Recap & Review #TCTH
This episode was kind of boring. Let's dive into it.
The sheriff arrived at the diner to talk to Bonnie. Bonnie asked the sheriff where he thinks all the news van is going. It looks like the news van is heading in the wrong direction of the trailer park. The sheriff told Bonnie he would check into it. He informs Bonnie he went to see her mother. Bonnie didn't know her mother shoot at Shelby. Bonnie has been wrapped up into so much stuff with her family. Now, Shelby brings more drama. Bonnie was more concerned with that news, but the sheriff was more concerned about something else. He told Bonnie he see how her mother is living. How she is living like a pet rock, a hoarder and so much more. The sheriff ordered Bonnie to get that place cleaned up. Bonnie doesn't have the time or the money to do that. He tells Bonnie they have to get that placed cleaned up or he have to put her mother out. How Jolene is living can cause danger to other residents of the trailer park. Bonnie gets upset and tells him to do what he have to do. I mean he has a point, her mother place is terrible. The sheriff offered to help send some folks over to help clean up. He also told Bonnie that her mother needs to talk to someone. Bonnie knows her mother will not talk to anyone. The sheriff feels she may talk to Frankie being that she live in the trailer park as well. Bonnie is like whatever.
As news reporter comes in the diner. He approaches the sheriff asking does Anna Hayes live in this town? The sheriff acted like he didn't know Anna. He directed the reporter to another town. Looks like everyone is trying to protect Anna. Bonnie was pleased the sheriff helped Anna out. Now, she has to warn Anna. Octavia asked the sheriff whether he found out who was shooting at them. She tries to tell him about the Secret Service guy but he cuts her off. Bonnie gets a big smile seeing Nelson walk in with Brody. She gives him a hug then runs off to call Anna. She just wanted to get away from Brody. Nelson walks on Octavia and surprises her. She is happy to see her brother. Now she really has to find out what Regina is up to.
Octavia tells Bonnie she is about to leave to take her mother lunch. Octavia knows Bonnie is trying to hide out from Brody. It appears Brody's family own the diner. Octavia drops that information when she tells Bonnie he will just come back here. Like she said, Brody walked through the door. Once again, Brody tries to talk to Bonnie about their relationship. Once again, Bonnie tells him it's over. She wants Brody to leave her alone and stay away from her. Amazing how you was just having sex with this man in a kitchen; now you want him to stay away from you. If Bonnie wants to put everyone else happiness before her own then so be it. Let it go, Brody!!! Upset, Brody walks out. He tells Nelson he has to work his tractor they leave the diner. The sheriff is looking for JB who never turned his self. What kind of sheriff is this?
The Secret Service guy approaches Anna in the park. He tries to help Anna with some good advice but she is not trying to listen. The President wants to talk to Anna, and she is refusing. He warns Anna to keep him on her side. Allow him to lose interest in you because if you don't, he will destroy her. See right Anna doesn't realize it isn't him destroying her life, it's the First Lady. Before Anna could reply, Brody pulls up in his truck. He doesn't like the Secret Service guy and makes Anna get in his truck.
Octavia arrives at the trailer park as Regina and Elm is having sex in a van. Regina sees Octavia. You would think she would end this affair. I mean Elm is married and can't offer you nothing. Why risk your marriage? Elm gets out the van. Octavia reached Jolene window with her lunch. Jolene is asking why Bonnie didn't come. Jolene thinks Bonnie is mad at her. Actually, Octavia just want information from Jolene so she volunteered. Octavia asked Jolene has she seen her sister in law creeping around. Jolene don't even know Regina. Jolene has been in the house that long. Octavia asked Jolene to keep an eye out for her. Jolene wants money. Octavia agreed to pay Jolene $15 for information. In return, Octavia has to do something for Jolene. Jolene wants her to find out Shelby whereabouts. That's funny, she doesn't leave the house so what she going to do with that information.
As she leaving Ms. Jolene's trailer, she speaks to Elm. Elm is faking like he is working on his van. Regina is still inside the van. Octavia questions Elm about information on Regina creeping out at night. Sadly, she creeping with him. He denies seeing or knowing anything. Octavia runs her mouth about how she feels about Regina. She slips and say when Nelson was in Japan. Elm caught that and asked was Nelson out of Japan. Octavia covers the fact the Nelson is home. She notice that Elm's fly is open, pants unfasten and he has no shoes on. She asked him about but he laughed it off. Octavia's didn't even get suspicious of none of that. As she leaves to go back to work, Elm flirts with her a little bit. I guess he thinks he is such a ladies man.
The sheriff arrived at Frankie's trailer. The sheriff asked, " Frankie to talk to Jolene about her hoarder problem. Frankie has her own problems. She is a therapist but working as a bookkeeper at a mill. Why is she in hiding? How does Brody and the sheriff knows her? She agrees to talk to Jolene if she wants to talk to her. The sheriff flirts with Frankie a little. After she mentions talking to his wife, that ended he flirtation. Regina and Elm have more sex in he can. Unbelievable how she is close to getting caught but still will not end this affair.
Brody arrives at his place. He has Anna with him. Due to Valerie and Victor still being there, she doesn't want to be there. Being that she didn't tell Brody to take he home, he brought her there. Brody is trying to fix his tractor so he tells her to help him. Anna starts talking about Ellis. Brody seems to think he served time for a bar fight. Anna can't believe he really thinks Ellis served five years for a bar fight. She confesses to Brody that Ellis is Rebel's father. Brody is shock to hear that Anna was raped. She even tells him about Ellis raping Bonnie and Shelby. Brody is so mad and wants to kill him. Anna reminds him that he can't do that. He has to take care of his father. Brody calls the sheriff to get to his now. This man protects those Hayes sisters no matter what. It's kind hard to tell why he does it. Is because of love for Anna or Bonnie? Could he be in love with both sisters?
Valerie gets Victor's contact out his phone. He calls the senator he was cheating with for help. Victor can't believe Dax did this to him. Valerie keeps telling Victor, Dax doesn't have that kind of power. It's clear he does, and Valerie doesn't know Dax like she thinks she does. Valerie keeps defending Dax, but Victor knows differently. Still, at the hotel, Dax calls the First Lady. He calls to tell her he has found a way back to DC. She wants Dax to stay in Happy, Alabama to get information from Anna. Thanks to Dax, First Lady has already sent all every news reporter down there to get the story on Anna. Dax and First Lady bicker about letting the people they love go and who tactics are childish. They both are revengeful people, so neither is better than the other. First Lady hangs up on Dax. She then goes taunt the President about Anna.
The sheriff arrives at Brody's house. He tells Anna that Bonnie needs to speak with her. He then asked have they seen JB. Brody gets to the point of his visit. He wants to know what is he going to do about Ellis. Even though the sheriff say he is going to handle it, Brody doesn't believe him. It doesn't help with the sheriff mentioning how much money his family has. That lead Anna and Brody to feel because he has money, it's OK for him to rape little poor girls. Basically, Brody and Anna makes it crystal clear; if Ellis comes anywhere near a little girl or them he is dead. This sheriff is too laid back with the town. All these crimes going on in his town and he just like yeah yeah yeah to it all.
Shelby and Rick arrive at the bar. Once they learn all the people are reporters in the bar, they decide to scheme them out of money. Rick is supposed to sell Anna out to the female reporters. Shelby will sell Anna out to the male reporters. How low can Shelby truly go? She literally doesn't care about anyone but herself. All she wants to do is get high and party. JB arrives at the bar. He tries to assault Shelby. She hides behind Rick and tells JB to go head do it in front of these reporters. JB backs off. After JB walks away, Rick and Shelby start their plan. They approach the reporters. One mention of Anna's name and they have the reporter's attention. Unbelievable how she is selling her sister out. In the pool area of the club, JB and his entourage are plotting to kill Dax and Victor. JB doesn't care if he has to kill his brother and father to get to Dax and Victor. He won't leave them dead anyway to get his money. So many problems in such a small town.
