Joe On A Mission - Average Joe Season 1 Episode 9

I knew Leon Montgomery would come by way of when it mattered essentially the most!

Leon and Joe had been severely outnumbered after they approached Nicolai’s cabin on Common Joe Season 1 Episode 9, and but they discovered themselves with a major leg up earlier than all of it went downhill.

One second, it seemed like perhaps they’d pull off the not possible, however when it rains, it pours, and identical to that, they acquired caught in Nicolai’s orbit, and the sociopathic mobster had the higher hand.

Not a single a part of me was ready for Leon to point out up and present out the way in which he did, however he is at all times had it in him.

Leon will get put down rather a lot, to the purpose the place it will probably really feel like a operating joke greater than anything, but it surely felt like he began to purchase into it. And certain, he is had some bumbling moments, and perhaps he wasn’t as stone-cold as his buddies, however Leon isn’t any coward.

Jotting Things Down - Average Joe Season 1 Episode 8

A cowardly man would not do half the issues Leon has carried out, together with assist his greatest good friend when he might simply run for the hills. Leon is a courageous soul and a superb shot, which he repeatedly proved whereas within the wilderness.

Joe and Leon splitting up had catastrophe written throughout it, but it surely labored of their favor as a result of they in all probability would have been caught rather a lot earlier if that they had each gone into the cabin collectively.

Leon by no means appeared like a terrific marksman, but it surely’s not as if we have seen him capturing rather a lot, both. Not till the flashback, that’s, which noticed a really assured Leon when he had a nail gun in his hand.

And that is the factor with Leon. He can lack confidence, which might be mistaken for spinelessness. However he is an clever and succesful man, particularly when he faucets into his confidence.

I’ve at all times thought Leon was an important piece of the good friend group and would come by way of in a giant method, and he certain did right here, killing many males and being the primary individual to make Arina seem like an everyday individual and never the Terminator.

Waiting Outside - Average Joe Season 1 Episode 7

He did every thing proper, and it was a very long time coming for somebody to offer him his flowers!

And I am completely happy that individual was Contact as a result of, at that second, within the darkness of the woods, which might now not defend them from their largest fears, they needed to get trustworthy with one another.

The friendships on Common Joe are so particular, and it is a large a part of what makes the story work. You need to really feel the love in these relationships, or issues would not make sense.

However due to the unbelievable chemistry between the leads, it is sensible for Contact and Leon to place their lives on the road for Joe and Jennifer. The connection dynamics really feel earned. They’re all household on the finish of the day, and that is been clear since Common Joe Season 1 Episode 1.

Contact has spent the previous few episodes off with Talford and making an attempt to return to phrases with the guilt and disgrace from his previous, all whereas detoxing in actual time and making an attempt to be there for an important folks in his life.

Talford Interrogate - Average Joe Season 1 Episode 6

It has been rather a lot, and but, it seems as if he is come out the opposite aspect.

There’s one thing actually poignant about seeing grownup friendships’ complexities and sweetness. And when Leon simply requested Contact if he was by way of being a junkie, it wasn’t malicious or merciless. It was merely a query born from a spot of affection between two males who think about one another brothers.

Contact has been so secretive about his struggles, however he clearly wasn’t fooling these round him as a lot as he thought he was. Now whether or not or not Leon and the others, assuming they know, ought to have carried out extra to assist Contact is definitely one thing that may be up for debate.

However now that it is out within the open, and Contact cannot disguise from it, what comes subsequent it is what’s necessary. Assuming all of them make it out of this alive, Contact will want that help system to get him by way of as a result of habit is a lifelong battle.

For his or her half, whereas everybody was operating by way of the woods, Joe was bunkered down within the cabin, and Angela was nonetheless within the hospital, considering how precisely she wound up within the predicament she discovered herself in.

Angela Recovers - Average Joe Season 1 Episode 9

Realizing that life was as soon as totally different for Angela, and the trail she had been strolling all of a sudden veered into one thing else brings lots of issues about her into perspective.

She loves Joe, and she or he loves her household. That is not a query. However out of everybody all through this case, she’s been the one most towards issues, preferring to remain throughout the confines of the life she’s constructed for herself.

Whereas Joe was able to hurl himself into hazard for the potential of a windfall and a brand new life, Angela was content material with how issues had been and would have a lot moderately run off to cover than keep again and topic her household to extra ache and struggling.

I do not know who Tony is or the place he got here from, however his job was to voice all Angela’s deep-seated ideas out loud. As a result of as a lot as she loves her husband, he’s undoubtedly the rationale she was sitting in that hospital mattress.

Perhaps that is a bit harsh as a result of Joe did not ask for any of this. He did not ask for Teddy to become involved with Nicolai, nor did he ask for Dimitri and his lackey to ambush him and break his fingers.

However Joe has had clear alternatives to get out. To run so far as doable, alert the police, or do any variety of issues that would not contain additional trauma.

If you wish to dive deep into Joe’s selections and whether or not they had been proper or mistaken, that might in all probability be fairly the dissertation.

And hindsight is at all times 20/20 as a result of I’ve discovered myself pondering Joe has carried out the most effective he can with a crap state of affairs whereas additionally recognizing if Angela selected to stroll away from him on the finish of all this, she can be effectively inside her rights.

Do I consider that can occur? No. However the dialog with Tony wasn’t carried out accidentally, and with nothing however time when you’re laid up within the hospital, how do you not take into consideration each second that is led you to your present state of affairs?

Once more, assuming everybody makes it out alive, what comes subsequent will likely be moderately fascinating as a result of whereas they’ve solely lied and killed to guard themselves, they’re now not the identical folks they had been earlier than all this began.
