In this episode of Double Decker, Doug decides to actively seek revenge for his old partner. Not the one who quit to become a bartender… someone else.
Have you completely forgotten all about Kirill’s cross-dressing sister? I sure as hell have. Not only was the whole revelation quite anticlimactic, but it seems like everyone forgot about it in this episode. And Kirill, who spent his whole life looking for his lost sister, or brother, is actually ignoring them to tail Doug and prevent him from getting killed after he’s gone on a complete rampage, Now, see if you can follow up:
Doug meets up with an old friend -Paul- who used to be a criminal but has now been clean for years and even has a family but he gives Doug information about some guy called Good Looking Joe, who supposedly killed Doug’s old partner – but wait, good looking Joe somehow find out that Paul’s been talking and invites him over for a good beating, then challenges Doug. Somewhere in the meantime, Doug’s old boss (???) is also involved in all this, and Joe calls Doug to inform him that his old boss is now his hostage. While traveling to meet Joe, we find out that Doug’s dead partner was not his ACTUAL partner but a -WAIT FOR IT- 14 female year-old orphan shoe-polisher with blue hair that sold information and had a strong sense of duty. Eh… um, Doug tries to give her a gun or something, and then tries to use the same gun on Joe but it explodes, and the reason why he hates social injustice is because of that random orphan girl… what a hero. I need a drink after watching this.
Easier to cross-dress: Getting back on Kirill’s brother’s situation; maybe cross-dressing was but a matter of convenience to them. I mean, look at Kirill – most people think he is a female, so maybe for the other sibling cross-dressing was just the easy choice. Just saying.
Enough Doug: We get it, he’s hardcore, he’s stoic, he’s invincible, his name is Doug, ultra macho silent anti-sharing alpha-male who takes days off to do his laundry and can take down a whole gang on his own because fuck you you killed some kid for shoeshine, man. Not cool.
The boss: Not sure how intentional this is but does the boss actually do anything in this show or is he supposed to be a comic relief character? Because so far his contribution to this show is absolute zero. He is incapable of anything, his face is always blank and he could easily be substituted by a much more efficient computer. There, I said it.
That decor: Wow, did we all see Good Looking Joe’s fancy-ass house? Loved those vines on the chandelier, good light, mini golf course, pas mal.
Whiskey flower: Somebody needs to teach Doug some life skills. Like what flower drink.
What a mess
Yes, that’s all this episode was. Too much information thrown around in a hurry without most of it making any sense in relation to the plot and the characters so far. Whatever.
