91 Days – Episode 4: “Losing to Win, and What Comes After”

The mob acquaints a man with strange bedfellows.

91 Days 4 (28)

I know I joked last week that 91 Days was going to turn into a road trip buddy comedy, but. I mean. I didn’t think it actually would. Our tense gangster drama lightens up this week, taking time off from crime family intrigue to meander across the lakes region of the U.S. and flesh out its two central characters along the way–and by “flesh out,” I of course mean:”make them endearing as heck.” Those felonious scamps.

    • And see I loved it because it fleshed out the characters in such a way that makes me care more about that plot – about what they do and how they act going forward, and how those choices affect the story.

      But then again, I also disagree that this episode didn’t have any plot on it. We learned some vital information about the night of Angelo’s family’s murder, as well as laid the groundwork for future conflicts both within the Vanetti family and between Angelo and the person who wrote him that letter. I think those reveals are the kinds of things it’s more effective to tease out gradually, building tension and mystery, and will lead to really good payoff further down the road. Fingers crossed, anyway!

  1. I really enjoyed this episode – in fact, I’d just made a comment a few days earlier on my own blog about 91 Days perhaps ending up taking itself /too seriously. I liked what I’d seen so far but was slightly worried that it’d have no sense of humour whatsoever. Then this episode happened and clearly my worries were unfounded, because it’s been my favourite one of the series to date.
