OK I watched episode 3 last night. I decided I would start the episode, most likely fall asleep and finish it after work tonight. Just as I started to think I should check the time and see if I could find a good place to stop, the end credits appeared. So this episode really grabbed me. I was worried because I did notice it was directed by James Franco, so nice job on that.
I’m hoping someone can fill in the blanks of something I think I may have missed. So Vincent is prepping the new bar, and Frank needs cash for his Poker game, so he breaks into the cigarette machine, pool table and juke box. Later, Red Headed Harvey Weinstein comes in demanding to know what happened to his machines, and saying he is a partner, and the machines are his. Frank gets pissed and takes a hammer to all three machines.
Vincent goes to a meeting about it, is told to sit at the bar and wait, then when Rudy shows up, he is told to go out front and wait. Then Rudy says (to not sure of the character, but assuming someone Red Headed Harvey reports to) “We have a problem to sort out” (not an exact quote…but close)
Vincent comes back all happy until he hears Bobby had a heart attack, then Red Headed Harvey shows back up at the bar and creates a scene while Rudy is there.
So, question is, who was Rudy talking to at the meeting? I’m assuming the problem was Red Headed Harvey, and I’m guessing the solution was to cut him out, which is why he showed back up? But if he was cut out, why would Rudy leave when he created a scene? Did I miss something, or is this something that gets explained later? Or is it something you gotta read between the lines, and makes more sense once it sinks in?
