Now, this love triangle between Eve, Joe, and Montalvo is intriguing, I suppose. You sometimes have to keep a scorecard of who’s who, but it is certainly worth it.

I hate just sitting here doing nothing Joe! But is Bonnie still alive?
Honestly, Eve, you are a bit helpless. However, Kistle eludes capture and leads them back to Georgia with promises of revealing the site where he buried Bonnie.
