Carole & Tuesday Episode 10: Disaster strikes


Being Roddy is suffering

It does almost feel like this series is powering through the performances at this point. The performances are fun, but the episode seems to be introducing some drama in the end. I get that the overall theme is that Carole and Tuesday run into obstacles on their path to success, but I'm honestly hoping it's not drawn out too much. At a certain point, it feels unrealistically like the world is literally out to get you, right?

Ertegun joins the crew

Well, I definitely wasn't expecting Ertegun to make a surprise appearance. I know he's supposed to cause trouble for Carole and Tuesday in particular, but I don't particularly mind this development. He can be pretty funny, so I actually look forward to seeing how he interacts with the girls when they actually get a chance to perform.

GGK comes back to life

Yeah, that GGK origin story goes about as well as I would expect it to go. I have to agree with Catherine in this episode somewhat. For me, it's hard to distinguish GGK's first performance from her second one. Once again, Angela's song isn't much better, but at least it's a more memorable performance.

Tao changes the song

I feel like this stuff with Tao would be more meaningful if we knew more about him. I get that his personality is supposed to be mysterious, but his actions seems to imply that he recognizes Carole and Tuesday as a legitimate threat. So, some hints of that would be nice.

Carole can't find Tuesday

I kind of forgot about Tuesday's birthday until the end of the episode. But looking back, I missed an entire subplot of Carole attempting to give Tuesday a birthday gift. That explains why she complains that the two aren't on the same wavelength. It's a small thing, but I think it's nice.

Pyotr tells his story

Maybe it's a terrible bias, but I still have a hard time taking Pyotr seriously. This is meant to be a heartfelt story about his past and where he came from, but it sounds too much like pandering to me. Perhaps I'm just too cynical.

Tuesday receives a gift

That doesn't look good. Presumably, something about this present is meant to interfere with Carole and Tuesday's performance. It is a bit strange, though. Cybelle seems like the obvious candidate given her creepy tendencies and the fact that she specifically asked about Tuesday's birthday in a previous episode. But then again, there was also that weird moment with Angela's manager staring at Angela's phone. I'm not sure what to make of that.

    Yeah, I think Pyotr's backstory was supposed to sound very milquetoast and simple. Or well, simple by human standards. Like his character isn't supposed to be so complex just that he has had his own set of issues to get to where he is today and become the person he is. I think it's pretty cool they invested a little bit of time into him whilst not overly dramatizing his whole character as I feel it would ruin him cuz' inherently he's very simple-minded.

    i think that's fine for him, but it probably just goes back to me not caring for his character too much
