Betrayal Review Betrayal Episode (1×03) Review – “If You Want the Fruit…”

ABC’s Betrayal Offers Up Some Answers in “If You Want the Fruit…”

Betrayal appears to be getting better and better each week, and I’m chalking that up to the fact the episodes have focused more on the legal drama than on the illicit love affair between Jack MacAllister and Sara Hanley. From the preview of what’s to come the next several weeks, that’s all about to change, but I’m holding out hope that the foundation that’s been built over the past two episodes is strong enough that not even a nonsensical romance can derail this drama. So let’s talk about the episode, shall we?

Catch Me If You Can… The majority of the episode centered around T.J. Karsten’s arraignment and the revelation of who stole Thatcher Karsten’s millions from his company. So far we’ve been led to believe that these two things are linked, but for now it appears that theory was incorrect. ADA Drew Stafford is operating under the belief that T.J. Karsten killed his Uncle Lou in a fit of rage because Lou embezzled money from the family business. For three weeks it appeared T.J. could have done it since we saw him talking to his uncle right before the police pulled Lou’s body out of the river. T.J. has a bad temper, and was very sketchy about what happened that night. Everything looked to be lining up for Drew, and then it was revealed this week that Aunt Connie was the thief and wanted the money to get her and Lou out from under Thatcher’s thumb. I can’t see Connie killing her husband, so it’s beginning to look like Lou’s murder is unrelated to the theft. Not only did we discover the truth about Connie, but it turns out Lou was talking to the Feds about Thatcher. Could either Thatcher or T.J. have killed Lou as payback for a crime he didn’t commit? Not unless you take into consideration that neither Thatcher or T.J. knew Connie was the culprit, but maybe now that we know about Lou’s loose lips. Like Jack am wondering if Thatcher’s the killer and set up his son thinking he could get T.J. off since he’s mentally handicapped. (More…)
