Army Wives: Liars Liars Pants On Fires

Army Wives: Liars Liars Pants On Fires

Posted by Dustin on 09.28.2009 at 11:14 pm

So this week we got a new episode of “Army Wives.” Not that last week’s wasn’t new, but it was mostly a filler episode as it was on Emmy night. This one advanced the current wives’ stories. As usual, first a mini-recap and then some thoughts.

Joan headed off to war this week, saying goodbye to Sarah Elizabeth and Roland. Soon after she left, Sarah Elizabeth came down with a serious case of pneumonia. She of course was saved by Army Doc guest star Linden Ashby (Melrose Place, Mortal Kombat). When Joan called Roland though, he told her nothing was wrong. When Michael found out, he felt Roland should be honest with Joan. Claudia Joy told Michael as their spouses, when they are in the field they don’t know how hard it is for them to manage on their own, and they have to make sure their spirits are kept up and they aren’t distracted by problems at home they can do nothing about. Michael of course wanted to know what Claudia Joy kept from him, but she wasn’t about to open up that can of worms.

Trevor continue to be devoted to making sure his first recruit Kinesa was signed up and sworn in. Of course she had more family issues, her sister OD’d and she was the only one to take care of her kids. In the end, Trevor convinced Kinesa to join up. Roxy however was not to pleased as she thought with Trevor staying home he’d have more time for their family. He however was bailing on family outings, even working on the weekends.

Jeremy came home this week and remained troubled by his friend’s death. He went to see his friend’s parents, to give them some things of his, as well as explain what happened. They didn’t blame him, even though he blamed himself. These scenes were just heartbreaking! Meanwhile Denise was studying for her paramedic qualifying tests.

Finally Pamela remained worried that Chase wouldn’t talk to her about what really happened to him. Worse yet, he was going out with Delta Force buddies, yet giving Pamela other stories as to where he was. When she point blank caught him in a lie, she was appalled. She realized how easy lying had become to him, even to her, and she wondered what other things he was keeping from her.

My Thoughts

So this one has been bothering me for awhile, but really hit home this week. I do NOT like the whole Trevor as a recruiter storyline. I know they tried to play it out as him helping a troubled youth better her life, but I felt it unfortunately came across as Trevor doing whatever it took to sign her up. It was like watching a car salesman do whatever necessary to make the sale.

Okay at the end of the show, Kinessa boarded a bus to go off to Army training. Wasn’t she just in high school 2 weeks ago?

Something tells me I’m not the only one a bit peeved with Trevor. Thanks to him becoming a workaholic, I am thinking Roxy is going to secretly go back on birth control, only to get caught by Trevor.

The previews for next week look amazing and full of drama. What was with Roland being arrested? Something tells me that jerk Price is involved!
