We knew Stan’s troubles would finally be exposed but none of us were ready for this. Stan is in real trouble and not just because someone is trying to kill him. He’s drinking, gambling and in general falling apart. He’s in a bad, bad place. This story might be about the mobsters he owes money to, but its so much deeper than that, exposing all of his problems. Worst of all, by the end nothing is better.
We’re so sad for Stan… But we do have a lot of fun breaking this episode down! Melissa teaches about the “bad news sandwich” Castillo has to give Stan. John is concerned for Holly and wonders who’s gonna eat all that corn. Dominic is in shock after seeing Stan murder a guy.
If only this was rock bottom for Stan.
