“One for the Money, Two for the Show” is a mixed episode for me. The concepts and ideas examined here are interesting, the actors in top form and we see how Bill and Virginia react to having their work watered down. Where it suffers is how it handles some character motivations and actions in some very forced situations.
If “Story of My Life” is any indication, it’s that if you want something done, do it yourself and own up to what’s yours instead of trying to ignore the problem right in front of you. Bill and Virginia see their problems put on display, but mostly through other people around them.
By episode’s end, characters confront their own insecurities that they long thought had been buried or neglected. Their arcs progressed in a well done, character driven episode.
