When it comes to The Recruit, one thing that we have known is that Max isn’t trustworthy. Hell, she’s the last person that anyone should trust. Yet a part of me wonders if she’s misunderstood and another part of me doesn’t care if she is, because she’s proven time and time again that she’s a manipulative bitch.
Yes, I said bitch, because in my opinion that’s what she is. Every single time I think that I can start to like her, she proves time and time again that she’s just not likable.
While anyone can understand the need and want to survive anything that comes your way. The primal need for survival is something that we all have in us but not all of us have them rise to the top. Max has.
She’s out of jail and has been brought home by the local Phoenix office. She doesn’t really want to talk, wasn’t expecting them to stay, but when they did, she told them she needed to sleep.
Now I really want to know how it was that Max had a tunnel underneath her house to escape, as well as a go bag filled with cash. It was kinda really impressive.
Owen is back in DC and he’s glad to be there. Tired AF, but no one can really blame him for that because he’s basically been awake for two weeks. I would be like hello no, I am not working today. Hannah is worried about Owen, but he tells her not to worry – that case that he was on, he’s done with.
One of the things that both makes me hate and makes me love The Recruit is that Owen continuously fucks up and he’s got people that are still there no matter what. And why I hate that is it makes me so mad that these people (Hannah) don’t hold him accountable.
Owen is barely home when the Secret Service comes knocking on his door to take him to the White House. He doesn’t know where he’s going or what he’s done or where he’s going, but when he realizes it – he knows that he’s fucked up.
He’s gonna have to face “not Bob” and it’s not going to be pretty. And the other thing that sucks is that we know he’s gonna have to deal with Max.
While I was hoping that Owen was done with Max, like he told Hannah, I knew better. After all we have three more episodes to go and well, shits gotta happen. The reasons that he gets sucked back in are also not his fault.
Max has the upper hand and knows also that she needs Owen to negotiate for her. What I’ve learned in this situation is that I will never, nor do I ever want to, under any circumstances that it takes to go home after pissing off the mob. I’ve also learned, never answer letters from people you don’t know. People are shady bitches.
The office peeps are both celebrating and hating on Owen, because Nyland is happy with him. Amelia may be on his side, but Lester and Violet, well… they shady and only care about themselves. They are both determined to do what they need to do to sabotage Owen. Well, let me take that back. Lester, I think, likes Owen, but doesn’t want to piss off Violet.
I can admire that Lester is loyal AF. It’s one quality that a lot of times I think people don’t have. I do however think that Lester’s loyalty is something that also means telling the truth and definitely telling Violet to calm the fuck down is important.
Max has made it so that Owen has no choice but to head back to Phoenix. She’s again manipulated the situation and drawn Owen into it. That and the Presidents Chief of Staff wants him to figure out how she knew the name “not Bob” and so he didn’t have a choice anyways.
Owen wants to resign, but he’s quickly reminded that he can’t ever leave. It’s not that simple when you work for the CIA. Owen can’t even focus – he’s got anxiety like no other.
Forced back to Phoenix, Owen doesn’t know that Dawn has had one of her team members follow him to Phoenix. She’s convinced that Owen is sleeping with Max, and the two of them make it seem like that’s the truth. Owen unwillingly, but for Max it’s a power game. She commands Owen to rent a suite and well, that’s not the best idea for him.
Why? Because he has to ask Hannah to use her card. She agrees, cause it’s Hannah and she’s blinded when it comes to Owen.
There is a part of Hannah that I think that we all can relate to, because sometimes it’s about control and wanting to save someone. I do think that when it comes to Owen, Hannah likes having that control over something and she knows that Owen needs her and she can control how much she lets him in or keeps him out.
Max and Owen are in the suite and she’s definitely making it uncomfortable. The fact that you can tell Owen wants to sleep with her, but he’s resisting. Finally, he’s doing something smart. Until he decides to play a game of truth with her and they’re both giving answers that they shouldn’t.
In the process, he gives Max intel that he shouldn’t. He tells her that Hannah is the one that got away. There is no part of me that doesn’t think that will be used against him in the future. Hell, it doesn’t take long before Hannah calls and Max tells her that information. Mind games are Max’s thing and she’s gonna do whatever she needs to in order to make it known that she’s in charge. Well, at least to Owen she is.
- Why is Violet always so high strung and paranoid
- Lester needs to stand up to Violet
- Max is a shady shit and has bad bangs
- I feel for the Phoenix team and having to tell peeps they lost Max
