The Client List Season Finale Thoughts . . .
So “The Client List” ended season 2 with a huge cliff hanger. This post is more about sharing my thoughts about the finale, and season 2 as a whole. It was one of those two-hour two-episode back to back finales, and I can’t cover it all with a recap without leaving out a bunch of details.
I definitely felt a sophomore slump with the second season. I didn’t dislike it, but it was missing the magic of the first season. I hated that Reilly just dumped Evan all together the minute Kyle came back, and that she took him back. Though Kyle and Evan are now very close to finding out the truth about Riley and “The Rub” so she may lose them both.
Having Nikki betray Riley the way she did for her scumbag ex who was after the list really annoyed me. Even though she did help Riley in the end to get it back, her flip-flopping with loyalties pissed me off.
Riley attempted to save her hide and Georgia’s by burning down The Rub and framing Nikki’s ex-boss and the scum trying to get his hands on the client list. Georgia had the insurance policy so they’d both be able to walk away wealthy . . . . Unfortunately everything blew up in her face. Evan, on a stake-out, caught her on video at the other guy’s club. Fortunately she was off camera when she broke into his safe and stole his gun and the list. However both Evan and Kyle caught her outside the rub as it was burning down . . . with the scum inside who she knocked out and left to die! Uh oh . . . . She never counted on him showing up, she just wanted to leave his gun and frame him for the fire.
Speaking of dead, I have a feeling the jerk may have killed Nikki before he headed to The Rub. If so, that may be Riley’s saving grace and get her out of this. He killed Nikki and then came after her. Of course she’ll have to come up with a story, and explain why she was at his club and on the surveillance tape. I’m sure it will all have to do with helping Nikki out.
I loved Selena this season, she was less of a bitch and more of a team player. Loved her and the cowboy, but she had to go and screw everything up with him in the final episode by dumping him and calling off their relationship. Why Selena why!?!?!? I get that she has a history of not trusting men, but I was really sad by her actions. Poor cowboy was left heartbroken!
Lacey and her husband finally got a baby through adoption, so I’m happy for them.
Lynette told Riley and Lacey that now that she was clean, she was going to move to Texas to open a salon with her friend. Noooooo! We can’t lose Lynette! Maybe Cybil has a new pilot in the works or something? They left it as she’d be visiting a lot though.
Next week starts “Drop Dead Diva” and “Devious Maids.” I’m looking forward to both shows!

Army Wives and Client List Thoughts . . . April 2013
These are just some of my random thoughts on both “Army Wives” and “The Client List.”
As much as I like Maggie, the other new wives are still failing to click with me and I’m really missing the friendships of the original wives. At this point Denise just seems to be stuck in stories here and there, which I think is unfortunate.
I do like Gloria and Pamela, and the conflict it brought between her and Jackie was interesting, but short lived. They made up awfully fast. I’m hoping the conflict between Hector and Patrick will be more exciting.
Brooke Shield’s joined as the Air Force captain/colonel/general/whatever and is already on Michael and Joan’s bad side with her spoiled ass behavior, doing whatever it takes to get her way. I hope they don’t plan on rushing Michael into a relationship with her character as Claudia Joy’s barely cold. However my guess is that is where this will eventually lead.
Over on “The Client List,” Reilly finally went all the way with a client as she was floundering in bills and couldn’t resist a 50,000 dollar payday. What I want to know is how she thinks she’ll be able to fly under the radar with all this spending money? The feds were watching her like a hawk, suspecting Kyle gave her money from his illegal activities. He did, but she gave it back. Now she’s got a boatload of cash that she’s spending. Shouldn’t they be questioning where this is all coming from?
Army Wives and Client List Thoughts
The latest episode of “Army Wives” definitely brought the drama back, and began to endear me a little more to some of the newer wives.
Gloria and Hector signed their divorce papers, and Gloria moved in with Holly. Holly needed a roommate to split expenses, plus she was lonely with her husband in the field. Gloria needed a place to live until she found something more permanent. Gloria also met a new guy at The Hump, Patrick. He asked her out, but she didn’t want to rush into dating again. However Jackie pushed her, so she accepted. Little does either of them know, the guy is Jackie’s “favored son” Patrick! Oh Boy! Not only that, but he dropped the bomb on his mom that he’s enlisted and is going to be shipping out ASAP. Of course he’ll be joining the same division where Hector is, and I’m sure it won’t be long before they both realize they have photos of the same girl. Oh boy!
Once again Joan, Latasha and Maggie’s sons got themselves into trouble! Joan went a little bit overboard and berated both mothers for not being around and watching the kids, when she sends David to their house she expects supervision. Latasha let her have it later on, telling her she never expected such a blasting from a fellow army wife, a fellow sister, and from “Ask Colonel Joan” who she respected. I think this was the first time I liked her, and Joan got the memo loud and clear and later apologized. I do however want to talk about Latasha’s son . . . Deuce. Could we not come up with a better name for this kid? I’m sorry but every time I hear it, I just think of what it’s slang for . . .
The drama between Maggie, Eddie and their kids continues. Eddie’s daughter is a spoiled brat who needs to be put in her place, and Eddie feels Maggie’s son and his troubles reflect badly on him. Both kids need to just be grounded!
“The Client List”
On “The Client List” I am loving the interaction between Selena and the new male masseuse Derek. Who thought I’d ever like Selena? Derek is pretty nice to look at too!
Lacey and Dale, who have been trying to get pregnant for awhile now, got devastating news. Lacey’s eggs are the issue and they have a 10% chance of getting pregnant. Why oh why do I see them asking Riley to be a surrogate at some point?
Riley meanwhile called it quits with Evan after her daughter saw them kiss and became upset. She felt she for some insane reason owed it to her kids and to Kyle not to fully give up on him, their family and marriage. Oh brother!

The Client List Season 2 Thoughts So Far
So I have been enjoying season 2 of “The Client List” so far, but wonder if some stories are moving a little too fast. Kyle has returned and is in all sorts of trouble with the law. We learned he had a drug problem, he got in deep, and left because of that and to make money to pay back money he owed as well as get clean. However the work he got into was not legit, he was trafficking stolen goods, money is missing, and now he’s in jail. Reilly is working on trying to save his ass, but he’s not making it easy. The cops want him to turn evidence on the people he was working for, but he won’t for some reason. The cops think he’s hid the stolen goods with Reilly, and that she may be in on his plan.
The money did finally turn up, Kyle had someone send it to Reilly. Now she’s really involved, but wants to turn it in. He said if she did that then she’d be sending their kids dad to jail for sure. I don’t know why she doesn’t turn it in and just be done with this dip wad, who is not good for her. She’s got her own illegal activities going on, she doesn’t need to add to them!
On top of all that trouble, Reilly has gone and decided to by the struggling “Rub” from Georgia. Georgia met a man she wants to settle down with, without the lies of “The Rub” which destroyed her first marriage. I think this is the last thing Reilly needs to be doing right now when her finances are going to be watched like a hawk.
Half the girls from Season 1 quit the business after Kyle was arrested there in the season opener. They feared the truth being found out. It’s basically just Selena and Reilly now, and this week she began hiring new girls. The first was a young girl named Nikki who was struggling to pay her tuition. But can she trust all these new hires, or will they bring her down?
Somehow I don’t see Reilly managing to buy “The Rub.” I think Georgia will end up back there sooner or later.

Drop Dead Diva and Client List: Pakes and Kisses!
Quick thoughts on both shows . . .
Drop Dead Diva
I’m still not warming up to Jane’s new guardian angel Luke. I hate that even though Grayson suspects Jane is Deb, that she still can’t tell him, and Luke is doing everything to make sure Grayson doesn’t find out. Boo! As much as I like Owen, it’s time for Jane and Grayson to hook up! I felt so bad for them both last night, and Luke was just grinning like a little devil because he kept them apart.
I have a feeling that Kim Kardashian’s character may turn out to be a con-artist. I don’t believe she’s a new addition to the show, just a temporary guest star. So she’s eventually going to leave, probably trying to take Stacy’s “Pake” business with her.
I am enjoying Parker and Kim working together again. We learned that Parker’s ex ran off with the son he just learned about, and they are no where to be found. Poor Parker! I’m guessing we’ll eventually see the return of Brandy and the boy at some point.
The Client List
Riley’s doctor date sure turned out to be a dud, and it only sent her straight into Evan’s arms. As I called it, the moment they kissed is when Kyle showed back up. That was just way too predictable. I’m shocked they brought him back so soon. Perhaps they weren’t sure of a second season initially? Things will sure get complicated now for Riley with two brothers fighting over her.
Daniel from “Ugly Betty” showed up as a city councilman with big ambitions. He was dating Deanne on the side. She’s already married, tried to break it off with him, but he wouldn’t take no and started to get rough. Georgia fired Deanne for breaking the rules and putting them all in hot water, as the councilman was threatening Georgia. When she turned to her friend on the force, there was nothing he could do. He was already in the councilman’s pocket! The councilman got him a promotion . . . and plans to teach “that woman” a lesson. I assumed he meant Georgia, but could he really mean Deanne?
Uh oh! Next week is the season finale, and it looks like things are going to get ugly all around. I wouldn’t be shocked if we saw the business being shut down by Georgia herself in order to protect everyone involved. That would like Riley in a huge pickle.
Double Diva Sundays on Lifetime!
So for the next few weeks, Lifetime Sundays feature “Drop Dead Diva” followed by “The Client List.” The later is wrapping up it’s freshman season, and June 24th marks the return of “Army Wives.”
First up was the return of “Diva,” not only to our TV, but from her whirlwind European tour with her new boyfriend Owen. She was brought back to help the firm, as they were in a financial bind and an old and very rich friend wanted to hire Jane/the firm to defend her in a murder trial. Long story short, her friend and her husband (Played by Roark Critchlow – Mike on “Days”) pulled one over on Jane and the firm, and basically got away with murder.
Grayson was on the trail of the truth, after Stacy told him at the end of last season that Jane was Deb. However she’s tried to take it back and explain that Deb was her best friend, Jane is now, and it’s like they are the same. Grayson eventually learned that Deb and Jane died the same day, at the same hospital . . . only Jane came back.
Stacy and Jane both got some pretty bad news. Fred is leaving! Actually . . . he left. He said goodbye to Jane and to Stacy, telling Stacy that when he left all his memories of her would go to. By the end of the episode Luke became Jane’s new guardian angel. He’s also an investor in the firm, saving it from going under. He told Jane he was here to make sure that she moved forward as Jane, and that Grayson fell for her as Jane. Jane told him she may be in Jane’s body, but she will forever be Deb!
I’m glad after all these seasons, Grayson is learning the truth. But as the angel said, he needs to fall for Jane as Jane, not Deb. Sigh! I’m really bummed that Fred is gone!
Over on “The Client List,” Riley’s mom attempted to buy the salon with her help, but they still didn’t have the money. It appears Riley’s horrid nemesis outside the salon Taylor will win out.
Selena, her nemesis in the Salon, flirted with danger and brought Evan by. What started out as a way to make Riley angry is having the opposite effect as Selena is beginning to realize she likes Evan. Oh no!
The teasers have us leading up to “the moment” we’ve been waiting for, Riley and Evan’s kiss. You know the minute they kiss that her husband will resurface.
This episode drove me nuts because the wife of Riley’s latest client was someone I knew, but couldn’t figure it out. I knew that her Texas accent put on for the show was what was throwing me off. Finally by the end of the show I figured out . . . it was Esme from “Passions!”
