[S1E6] Was It Your Ears



The kumiho is well known in Korean mythology, though it originated in Chinese culture. Legend says that a kumiho is a fox spirit which has garnered power over a thousand years giving it the ability to shapeshift, ordinarily into the form of a beautiful woman.


The kumiho exists in both Japanese (kitsune) and Chinese (huli jing) mythology but they are different from their Korean counterpart which is the yeowoo guseul; a fox marble/bead which is said to give power to the kumiho. If the kumiho kisses a human deeply, the marble/bead enters the mouth of their prey and absorbs their energy. Some tales say that if a kumiho chooses not to kill and eat any humans for a thousand days, it can become human. Until then, it can shapeshift from fox to human, but still has something fox-like about their appearance all of the time, be its pointed ears, a foxy face, or those nine tails, which would be quite the unfortunate giveaway.


There was some great character development I'll speak on later, but mostly it was your typical SVU script. They brought in Kelli Giddish who plays Amanda Rollins and Ice-T who plays Fin on the show. I haven't seen episodes regularly, but Rollins mostly provided profiling and analysis into the mind of the serial killer/rapist.


It took slogging through a morass of tedium, but on Incorporated Season 1 Episode 6 we finally got to see what happened to Laura eight years ago, and how it started her downward spiral of self destruction.


Chief Conner: You're one of the best interrogators I've ever seen, but there's no quiet room in Sioux Falls is there? It would be a waste of your talents, don't you think?Julian: I have other talents.Chief Conner: What we do in this room, Julian is bloody, thankless, but we do it for the good of the company.Julian: All due respect sir, but I think I've done enough.


This is a scene, in a lot of ways, that is the foundation that holds up who each of these people are in the game, and Mazin and Druckmann knew that deviating from something so essential would be a disservice to those who have been with these characters for 10 years, as well as those who have just recently discovered who they are.


FYI: The Big ChillingtonThe Giffard family really did descend from a knight who came to England with William the Conqueror in 1066. There is no actual evidence that Queen Victoria ever visited Chillington Hall (the family home for 800 years), however Sir John Giffard spent thirty years in the court of King Henry VIII, and survived, though he likely would have ended up with his head on a spike had he been as dismissive to Henry as he was to Victoria!


The roofie comment was like DING DING DING. Of course he knows. And not because he would use them. But because he needs to protect himself from them. Just part of his life. And Sam, who was at college for four years, has no clue.


Micro heads off to get Curtis, telling him "Frank's dyin'." Curtis of course rushes to his aid (as he was a Corpsman) and has Micro assist in removing the arrow that's still stuck in Frank's shoulder ("The only way out is through). Curtis does the hard stuff, while Micro winces and grimmaces. Once he's all set, Curtis tears into Micro for enlisting Frank in this fight. "Why'd you go after him?" Micro is confronted with his own guilt for selfishly bringing in Frank to this war. And that's the lesson for the day, kids!


Shifting gears, we head back to Curtis's Vet group with O'Connor, the Vietnam Vet, spouting every single possible Vietnam Vet stereotypical rhetoric, talking about how much harder he had it and tosses out terms like "real Americans" and "pussies" and blah, blah, blah. Hopefully, there's more to this asshat, because he is beyond grating. I guess we're supposed to hate him or, at some point, feel sorry for him. Me, I just hate him. Curtis, meanwhile, tells a story about how during his training he was given a goat that was blown up so that Curtis could practice saving it, over and over again. "You stay in the game long enough, you're gonna get got." The group asks what happened to the goat. "He died eventually. He died of just too much." So, I get it. Frank is the goat. Lesson learned.


Back at Micro's, ol Micro is watching his favorite reality show, Micro's family, as they squabble over Micro's son, Zach, stealing a skateboard, smacking his sister and being a "bully". So much family drama. Micro looks on with lament and anguish and I totally get it, because he needs to be there to whup that boy's ass. Later, Frank is awake and getting his bandages changed by Micro when a radio starts talking, saying "Raven, this is Blackbird" and Frank's ears perk up. "I'm Raven." Micro asks who it is that's calling him. Frank says it's Billy Russo. Micro wants to know if they need to worry about him and if he knows Frank is alive. Frank stands up for Russo, calling him a friend. "Why is he calling you now?" Micro asks. Why indeed?


Ben's been having nightmares about dead bodies coming back to life ... and yeah, he kind of deserves it. However, this episode isn't about him, it's about Laura ... and just what in the heck happened to her out in the Red Zone all those years ago.


Laura psyching herself up for a trip to the Red Zone prompts the eight-years-earlier flashback, where a teenage Laura is enjoying a night out with a couple of girlfriends at the wild and crazy Pocket Rocket Club. The two bodyguards that Elizabeth sent to keep tabs on Laura are messing with her vibe, so she goes outside to make out with the handsome Bradley.


THE LAST OF US story takes place twenty years after modern civilization has been destroyed. Joel, a hardened survivor, is hired to smuggle Ellie, a 14-year-old girl, out of an oppressive quarantine zone. What starts as a small job soon becomes a brutal, heartbreaking journey, as they both must traverse the U.S. and depend on each other for survival.

The next day, Walt uses the example of fulminated mercury to teach his students how rapid chemical reactions can cause otherwise harmless substances to explode. Before he can finish his lesson, Walt abruptly leaves to vomit in the men's room, after which a school custodian named Hugo assists him. At a cancer support group, Skyler tells Walt she feels he doesn't want her around, and that she and Junior wonder where he disappears some afternoons. Walt says he needs to be alone sometimes, and that he goes on nature walks.


The next morning, upon finding more clumps of hair falling out, Walt shaves his head completely. Carrying a bag of what appears to be crystal meth, Walt talks his way into Tuco's hideout. Upon meeting Tuco, Walt identifies himself as "Heisenberg" and demands $50,000, equivalent to $35,000 for the stolen meth, plus $15,000 for Jesse's pain-and-suffering. Tuco and his gang laugh openly at Heisenberg's "brilliant plan", responding to Tuco's theft and assault on Jesse by bringing him even more meth to steal. Walt picks up a crystalline nugget from the bag and calmly informs Tuco, "this is not meth," and hurls it to the floor. The ensuing explosion blows out the windows in Tuco's office, sending debris falling onto the street below.


Ears ringing, coughing violently on plaster dust, Tuco's vision clears just in time to see Walt brandishing the packet of "meth" over his head, and hurriedly tells his men to put away their guns. He agrees to pay Walt the $50,000, and tells him that his meth sold faster than any other product he had ever seen. Walt agrees to sell his next batch to Tuco, provided that payment is made upfront and that Tuco agrees to accept at least two pounds. Before he leaves, Tuco asks what the "meth" in the bag actually is, and Walt reveals it is mercury fulminate.
