The new show Eastwick is being called Sex and the City meets Salem. I don’t know if I’d go that far, but I do like it. It’s my guilty pleasure show, because it combines cute guys, magic, and girl friends. It’s cheesy, but it’s the kind of cheesy you enjoy.I also really love the ladies’ hair. How do they all keep it so glossy and perfect?
In this week’s episode Joanna is trying to find out the truth about Darryl. It’s weird, all the ladies don’t trust him, yet they always seem to hang out with him. It’s kind of bizarre.
So as Joanna does some amauteur detective work with her friend Penny, they discover they’ve been led by Darryl to a whorehouse, where the town reverend is a loyal customer. Joanna gets some prime pictures, and lands her first front page news story. Her crush Will also admits that he’s liked Jo since the first time they met, but instead of taking her right there on the newsroom floor after hours, he insists on being a proper gentleman and taking her for a date. I really don’t know what she sees in Will, he is kind of a tool if you ask me. She could do so much better!
Roxie is being haunted throughout the episode by her daughter’s attempted rapist, who died in a freak accident the previous episode. Roxie feels like it is her fault because she wished he would die, and then he did. All of the ladies are still coming into their powers, but none of them seem to know they actually have them. Roxie starts to figure it out when she later tells a fake psychic to “choke on it” and she literally starts choking. Roxie ends up finally apologizing to Gus’s ghost, because while she is relieved that he’s gone for her daughter’s sake, she feels sorry for his mother who lost her son.
Kat is trying to patch things up with her control freak/alcoholic husband. I can’t make my mind up about this guy. I can see where she’s having trouble. He’s incredibly hot, and sometimes so sweet to her. But then he flips on a dime and turns into this jealous d bag who tells her she can’t have her girl friends. WTH? So she makes up her mind to leave him, and stays over at Roxie’s for the night. Joanna is there too because her house gets broken into and she’s afraid it’s the reverend who say her take pictures of him at the whorehouse.
When Kat goes home in the morning, she finds that her husband Raymond has left her, taking her kids with him. On the fridge is the divorce lawyer’s card, that Darryl gave to Kat a few days before, with the words “go to hell” written on it.
Meanwhile Darryl is in his house, burning old newspaper clippings about a millionaire who mysteriously died, and an old picture of him (the same age as he is now) with three beautiful women, who are now very old. I’m pretty sure he’s some sort of evil warlock guy, but the odd thing is he keeps helping our three main characters. So is he good, is he bad, or somewhere in the middle? I’m guessing we’ll just have to keep watching to find out.
