[IMG:L]10:01: The boys are at a Dolce & Gabbana function, for which Turtle is extremely dressed up--and by ‘extremely dressed up’ I mean sans baseball hat.
10:04: It’s an open-casket funeral service for Allen Gray (Paul Ben-Victor
), which gives Ari the opportunity to look him in the eyelids and tell him how much he hated him. The funeral also gives Ari the potential opportunity of a lifetime when he is informally offered Gray’s former job as head of Paramount. It’s a plot development that will apparently shape the next episode or two--and possibly Vince’s career (or lack thereof?).
10:07: At long last, Eric gets complimented
on his small stature--by a model, no less!
10:08: Dana Gordon’s (Constance Zimmer
) back, and she wants a job working for Ari if he accepts the Paramount deal. Meanwhile, Mrs. Ari (Perrey Reeves
) just wants to know who this Dana Gordon chick is.
10:13: E gets his cheeks squeezed by a supermodel almost twice his size in a scene that must be featured prominently on the DVD's blooper reel.
10:14: Vince goes looking for his model crush, Natasha (Daniella Van Graas
), but runs into her marijuana-smoking friend. C’mon--do supermodels really spend their downtime smoking pot?! I mean, what happens when they get the munchies?
10:15: Poor E: The supermodel who kidnapped him and took him to her room only wanted to show him her reel, which unfortunately isn’t an anatomical euphemism.
10:16: Jeffrey Tambor
has a nice scene in which he scoffs at the idea of doing another TV show. If it’s not the best cameo of the season, it’s definitely the most unexpected.
10:21: Best quote of the episode, courtesy of Vince (surprise, surprise): “I’m not gay; I’m not even bi.” And on that note, Vince turns down yet another easy million-dollar check…
10:23: …But hitches a ride to Hawaii with a plane full of modes. Can’t put a price tag on that.
10:25: Whoa, Entourage
throws us a genuine-moment curveball: Vince is not so approving of Ari’s potential Paramount deal, by which Ari is taken aback. They go their separate ways as…Radiohead plays through the credits? Very un-Radiohead--thus making it a double-curveball scene!
10:28: Previews for next week: Turtle evidently snags a date with mega-guest star (and HBO alum) Jamie-Lynn Sigler
; Ari inches closer to accepting the Paramount deal; and Josh Weinstein (Joshua LeBar
) breaks the news to Vince that he’s not going to be a movie star anymore. Uh-oh, could Ari and Vince become Tinseltown adversaries? Very, very doubtful, to answer my own question, which I'd intended to be rhetorical.Click here for our Entourage guide, featuring video clips, recaps and more!
