It's hard to believe that Evan is still agonizing over his lost relationship with Cassidy. But still this twisted relationship somehow continues, even as Cassidy humiliates Evan by going off with her new boyfriend in his little sports car - Cassidy can't help but look back forlornly at Evan.
Evan seems to have nowhere to go, with no job and no money. He's been arrested for assaulting his boss - that's understandable, but pretty low. Forced to sell his gun to repay Cassidy, we are at least relieved he won't shoot himself. The pathetic calls to Cassidy are sad, and seem to be a one last desperate reach for Cassidy before committing suicide. But no, the writers aren't through with Evan, nor are they through with writing Evan completely out of the show. There's something more here, as possible redemption comes in a glimmer of chivalry as Evan rescues a harassed housewife from her brutal husband. It may remain to Daddy Nash to be Evan's final savior, as we wait and see how this tale of self-destruction unfolds or rebuilds.
A possible positive outcome would be for Evan to face up to his drinking problem with help from the Man himself, Nash/Don Johnson, the man who has fought a few bouts with the bottle himself. Let's see the quality of mercy that NASH BRIDGES can show....
This episode spends an inordinate amount of time on donuts. This backstory is just not amusing enough to merit the amount of time it consumes in a 46 minute (that's minus commercials) episode. Who cares what Caitlin thinks or what Nash thinks about Joe's latest business venture. Nash turns into a prissy lawyer asking Joe and Caitlin to sign documents saying they won't be mad - does this strike us Nash fans as really uncharacteristically nerdy behavior from the Cool Man himself? Really.
