As much as I enjoyed the pilot, in retrospect I wonder how good it truly was. The third episode of Cane is a bit better than the second, which totally sucked. I didn’t like it as much as I thought I would. This show is trying to find itself. It’s a mix with different premises. It’s a bit of Dynasty mixed in with The Sopranos.
Vega learns of Frank’s affair with his business rival Alice Samuels. I honestly don’t know what Frank is thinking. Alice is playing him for a fool. She uses him to spy on the Duques. If Pancho found out, he’d go mental. Frank is just being an asshole. Or he’s just being stupid. Maybe a bit of both.
Vega continues to do some business dealings with excellent results, much to Frank’s surprise. Since Vega has learned about Frank’s affair, he is keeping him apart from any decision making. Frank notices this, but doesn’t do anything about it. Vega tells Frank that he knows about Alice and desperately wants to tell him about why his parents hate the Samuels so much. Pancho won’t have it.
This episode was a bit better than the last one. One thing is for sure, it’s not making me want to watch the next few episodes. The same thing is happening to Journeyman. I can’t be bothered really, but I know that in the end I’ll watch them.
Warning: Spoilers ahead.
