House of Lies “The Mayan Apocalypse”

So, did Marty and Jeannie sleep together? It’s a good question, but the better question is why they each decided to blow up their lives. As Marty said, they both have “gaping, sucking holes in the middle of” them they call souls. They’re both damaged and destructive. Marty drives his son away. I mean, you’ve got to be pretty bad to make your kid want to live with his psycho mom. You’ve got to have a consistent track record of f*cking up. And while Jeannie’s fiance is perfect on paper, she’s not ready to get married, or be engaged, or live with him. I know he’s hurting, but the way he talked to Jeannie after she admitted to her bad behavior makes me think he wasn’t the one for her anyway.

But there’s good news: the merger is kaput. Jeannie led the charge to out the women Marco slept with, promising them a fast track to partner. So she fell on her sword to save her team and the company. That professional “victory” had better be enough because she doesn’t have much of a personal life right now.

Marty, on the other hand, has been on the long, slow road to devastation. He was probably on the road to recovery when he briefly stopped sleeping with Monica, but we all knew that wouldn’t last for long. And even though Roscoe is the most important person in Marty’s life, he’s been systematically driving a wedge between himself and his son. First he forced April to break up with him. Then he started breaking promises to Roscoe. I don’t believe Monica is as reformed as she makes herself out to be, but she seems to be more stable than Marty right now – which is truly frightening. Even Jeremiah flies the coup. I’m worried for Marty. He doesn’t want or need space, but he’s got a lot of it right now.

What about Clyde and Doug? I always enjoy their comic relief but I’m looking forward to getting to know them better next season. I love their teasing, antagonistic relationship but I would like to see what kind of trouble they get into away from the office.

So back to the question I asked earlier: Did Marty and Jeannie sleep together? I hope not. When they get together I want it to mean something.

House of Lies returns next winter on Showtime.
