This week, there's no shortage of brutal curveballs and harsh revelations for everyone at The Knick. In fact, there's plenty to go around.
Not only Thackery's life collapsed this episode. "Not Well At All" doled out a season's worth of revelations and realizations, none of them good.
I wasn't prepared for this week's heartbreak, especially since things were looking promising.
Hate to say it, Cleary, but you'll need to move at an even slower pace if you want this to work. That curtain's going to be pulled even tighter tonight.
It's an intersection of the season's horror and its feminism.
"Not Well at All" more than matches the position staked by the first season's eighth episode: a headlong plunge into bleakness that abridges and re-contextualizes earlier breakthrough moments.
There was an enormous amount of incident in the episode, and Steven Soderbergh kept things moving at breakneck pace, squeezing (by my count) 32 separate scenes into about 50 minutes.
It should have been obvious from the start, but Tom Clearly, the surly ambulance driver played by Chris Sullivan, might wind up being The Knick's most memorable character.
I remain in constant appreciation and occasional awe about how sneakily... the writers on The Knick have presented us with an array of female characters that are often even richer and more complex than their male counterparts on the show.
