Episode 8: There's been a murder
The Taylor-Made gang is back to break down season two. In lieu of a two-minute drill, here's everything you need to know to get you up to speed on what we'll discuss: Season 2, Ep. 1 “Last Days of Summer” Matt and Julie’s relationship is crumbling thanks to this mysterious guy that suddenly shows up named The Swede, Tami has her baby and is struggling hard with Eric not around to help out, Tim Riggins is back to his old self and is pursuing Lyla hard. Lyla though is focused on her newfound faith. The Panthers have a new coach who Buddy Garrity hate.  And none of this really matters because Landry killed a dude to save Tyra. Season 2, Ep. 2 “Bad Ideas” Distance is taking its toll on Eric and Tami, as is the new Dillon head coach on Buddy Garrity’s favorite thing on earth. Carlotta has arrived at the Saracen household to be Grandma Saracen’s new in-home caretaker and Julie breaks up with Matt. But again, none of this stuff compares to the fact Landry killed someone to save Tyra. Season 2, Episode 3 “Are you ready for Friday” Billy is with Jackie, who slept with Tim Riggins last season. Now that Matt doesn’t have Julie, the writers decided to give him a weird beef with Smash. Julie is with The Swede now, I guess. And Jason quits coaching to go see if an experimental surgery in Mexico will help him walk again. And one last time, none of this really even measures up to Landry KILLING someone to save Tyra.
