Liz, I'd forgotten he's got a "real" job working in that liquor store. So, there's a good chance you're right. Plus, she's asked him more than once, "What's in the backpack!"

DSOTM, I'm trying to get a feel for this guy.

Are the drugs a way to get guns back to his country? Is he a "true" patriot, or has the money corrupted him?

I definitely got a Boyz in The Hood vibe, especially the series opening scene with the kids out in the street.

I want more of that. I like the Latino wrestler guy too. Both these characters are enjoyable to watch, and they're the reason I'll stick with it for at least one more ep.
From what I've heard about our government's involvement in South America, he doesn't surprise at all. Although, I do agree he's very unassuming.

I get the impression he believes in what he's doing. Plus, he's very motivated. Did you get the impression that was his wife he talked to on the phone in the premiere? Didn't he mention something about a little girl?

Re: Snowfall - FX - Thursday

Actually, when I mentioned the Latin drug kingpin, I was referring to the older drug dealer in the mansion.

As far as the soldier goes, I believe he was sincere when he referred to the drugs being a means of acquiring militaria. He may have his sights set on leadership and power vs being Tony Montana. Too early to really know though but that's my best guess.

Re: Snowfall - FX - Thursday

I'm truly enjoying each arc of this inaugural season.

Franklin - If you remember the end of last weeks episode, Franklin thought he was just going to waltz into the drug business without any repercussions. Well, he got a rude awakening. He got beat up and his drugs and cash were stolen.

Making it back to the club, he asks Claudia the names of the guys who robbed him. Lenny and Ray Ray!

Realizing he's going to need some help, he goes to see his buddy, Leon who in turn knows a guy who may know these guys. This guy is bad news, with a capital BAD!

Teddy - Alejandro has a delivery made to the storage. Crates full of guns and rocket launchers. Teddy is pissed because the weapons were stolen from Camp Pendleton, the Marine base near San Diego, CA.

Before Teddy will accept the delivery, he wants all of the serial numbers removed from the weapons, and have the crates rebadged so no one will know where they came from.

Taking on the job themselves, Alejandro and Teddy start filing down numbers on "every" weapon. Which according to Alejandro, is going to take forever. Especially because Teddy gets a phone call and takes a leave of absence.

The mother of his son has arrived in town and he wants to spend some time with the both of them. What we find out from this visit is, she was/is also a CIA agent. They got involved while in Tehran and she got pregnant.

Gustavo - has gotten himself so involved with Lucia and Pedro's failed play on his family's business, he doesn't know which end is up. Initially I thought he got himself involved because he had a thing for Lucia, and he still may, but she flaunts her relationship with Pedro right in his face.

Now they want him to kill another member of Pedro's family so no one will know Gustavo was the one who broke into the house and stole all of that money. He finally agrees, but he requires both Lucia and Pedro to be present.

Good to hear, DSOTM!

As I mentioned in my previous post, this is my new favorite series of the summer. I wasn't expecting to like it this much either. I thought it was going to be another tale of drugs in the inner-city, but its so much more.

To say the least! That was definitely disturbing. How the hell is Franklin going to get his money back from that dude.

Wait, I thought they were brother and sister. Did I miss something? LOL!

Definitely disturbing, Liz!

Being raped! It was nothing more than a form of torture. And we saw, he eventually gave up the location of the money.

And speaking of money...No way is Franklin getting it back, unless he's willing to kill the guy, and we saw he's not willing to go that far, yet.

I'm going back myself. I definitely thought they were boyfriend/girlfriend.
