SOUTHLAND “Discretion” Review

SOUTHLAND "Discretion" Series 3 Episode 3 - One of the definitions of ‘discretion’ is the ‘power or right to decide or act according to one’s own judgement’, and that’s exactly what Sherman, Lydia and Sammy did this week with varying degrees of success.

Things were tense between Lydia and Josie this episode, partially thanks to Russell hanging around. After ignoring Josie’s requests for them not to follow up on a possible case, Lydia is vindicated when it turns out to be a murder after all. But she chooses to listen to Josie when advised not to give Russell a loan he asked for. He doesn’t seem particularly pleased by this.

Sammy spends most of the episode on his cell ranting at a crying Tammi. She’s staying at their house with her new boyfriend, Victor, while Sammy crashes on Nate’s sofa. Tammi’s even using Sammy’s healthcare package to pay for her pregnancy care, even though the baby may well be Victor’s. Sammy decides to go to the house and collect his things, but finds the locks changed and no one home. Of course, he breaks a window just as a couple of cops turn up and Nate has to explain the situation to them. Read More...
