Review: 'Nip/Tuck' - 'Virginia Hayes' Season 7, Episode 5

As some shows reach the end of their run, they often aren't able to properly address many of their most important lingering plots. Either the show is canceled abruptly and hardly anything gets answered or if it was a hit, network economics kick in and the show runs so long that what does or doesn't get answered is never enough for the fans that stuck it out.

'Nip/Tuck,' however, seems to have entered its final season with a bit of a happy medium -- seven seasons is still a long run for a drama, but Ryan Murphy and Co. have never let fans forget about the original sin that started it all. In the same way that the bullet Vic Mackey put in Terry Crowley's face in the pilot episode of 'The Shield' became crucial during that show's final season, it's looking more and more like all those hams that Sean and Christian bought in the 'Nip/Tuck' series premiere might be the very thing that ends up driving them apart.

Of course, I'm referring to the cover up of Silvio Perez's murder. If you recall, he molested Escobar Gallardo's six year old daughter and got facial reconstruction from McNamara/Troy to help him get away. Escobar found out, but so did Silvio's brother Alejandro and he eventually killed him. Left with a body to clean up (and a connection with Escobar that lasted until the end of season four) Sean and Christian wrapped Silvio's body in about a dozen honey-glazed spiral hams and threw him in the Everglades. For ten years they had gotten away with it.
