    “One of my very favorite things about SHARP OBJECTS — and I realize this might sound odd — is that it captures what it’s like to live in the physical world. Sounds vary depending on the size of a room or the distance between people. You hear insects, a breeze, buzzing lights. A subtle show that rewards concentration. Every line, image and cut means something.” – Matt Zoller Seitz

    Stunning episode. Things are leaning more and more toward the crazy and supernatural as this all concludes, which I adore. Jean-Marc Vallée can win another DIRECTING Emmy. Amy Adams and Eliza Scanlen are revelations in these roles. There’s no other way to say that. As much as I want to have the murder mystery resolved, I’m marveling at the interactions between these two sisters for everything that’s being said and even more that’s being unsaid. Chris Messina is getting more to do than I thought a character like this would allow him. Elizabeth Perkins hasn’t felt Emmy-worthy to me until tonight. I was hoping for a bit more from the “ladies who lunch” scene, but the party more than made up for that. Two episodes left! Anxious to see how this all ends.

    I love how much this show follows the “show don’t tell” mantra and is able to convey so much with the facial expressions of these characters and the editing of scenes to piece everything together. The pacing this episode was probably my favorite so far. The party scene actually had me a little on edge because I don’t trust Amma at all and was actually worried for Camille’s safety, so props to all involved with building the uncertainty surrounding that.

    Yes, my favorite thing about this show and what the show is really about it is the interection between this woman, Camille, Amma and Adora. I am loving everything about them.

    After I had a moment to think about, I agree with the consensus that this episode was brilliant. The best one so far, hands down. I loved the interactions between Amma and Camille. Amy Adams and Eliza Scanlen are so great together, and I wouldn’t mind them co-starring in a project again. The episode was visually stunning from beginning to end, but the scene that will stay with me is the skating scene. I was blown away by the visuals on that. That ending piqued my interested, in particular the last line of dialogue: “It’s not safe for you here.” I feel like that signals towards some massive revelations in the final two episodes.

    After putting Riley Keough, Ed Harris, Jeffrey Wright, Kit Harington and Emilia Clarke lead this year, I could see HBO submit Chris Messina as such too, in which case he can kiss his nomination prospects goodbye. He has become the show’s dominant car driver.

    I feel like people rave Eliza Scanlen because of the character she’s playing and because they see her for the first time ever. For me she’s solid but nothing to write home about. The show is quite decent. Adams is still good, Clarkson is still ham and Perkins is still underused. I hope they’ve changed ending because the one from the book sucked.

    Couldn’t agree you more. I also feel like an adaptation of Sharp Objects should have been a movie not a series. Most of the episodes contribute little to the mystery and it’s not like this is the best character drama. I hope they just submit “Milk” for writing because I don’t think this can garner multiple writing nominations given the fierce competition next year.

    They will probably submit a Flynn and a Noxon episode. If the finale is big, that would definitely be one submission. I also feel like “Vanish” would be an excellent one. The first episode is still my favorite.

    HBO kept to single writing submissions for The Night Of, The Young Pope and Show Me a Hero, so I suspect that they only submit the finale here.

    Personally, if I were voting for best supporting actress for clarckson or scanlen, I would choose Scanlen. She is the definition of a scene stealer (even when Amy Adams is in said scene) and I think a lot of younger actresses wouldn’t have been able to play such a contradicting character convincingly. I think she deserves some major nominations. Not win, but definitely be nominated.

    Amazing episode. Adams and Scanlen are too good in this, I’m so on edge when they’re alone together. Clarkson’s line delivery is so great. She may be a little ham, but I actually really love her in this after not feeling her the first few episodes. The editing also continues to be top notch and so effective.

    I don’t know if I’m the only one but I’m starting to care less about who murdered the two girls and more about Camille’s safety? I feel like something big (and bad?) is going to happen in the last two episodes to somebody.

    Totally agree, Scanlen does not deserve a nomination, at least for her material in the first six episodes.

    I couldn’t disagree more about Scanlen. She’s a revelation, absolutely brilliant.
