No consensus yet.
Bertie's first romp with Genevieve seems downright chaste, what with the adorable top hat strip tease followed by Bertie hemming and hawing over the fact that appearing naked before the woman he wants to have sex with might seem "too forward."
The unleashing of Lucy's id is just one of the highly enjoyable events of this overstuffed episode, "Williams and Walker" - perhaps the best of the season so far.
The magnificent scope of the charity ball is expertly captured by one long, seamless tracking shot expertly employed by Soderbergh. It allows us to take notice of nearly all of the main characters.
Now, Edwards might be down, but I wouldn't discount him. He's got enough scientific chops to figure out what went wrong and why. But he just might have to conduct this investigation out of another hospital sooner than he'd thought.
The real stars were Steven Soderbergh and his camera.
"Williams and Walker" is another display of spectacular ingenuity from The Knick director Steven Soderbergh and writers Jack Amiel and Michael Begler, wherein the show's customarily airtight cross-cutting between narratives begins to spell clear doom.
The "Get The Rope" of season two, "Williams And Walker" weaves every story and thematic throughline of the season together when a mob descends upon the Knick...charity ball.
I'm starting to suspect that a similar but sneakier ploy is going on within The Knick.
Business as usual. That's fine, but shows - especially emotionally remote shows like 'The Knick' - every now and then need to take a break from slow and steady world building and blow things up real good.
