AGAINST THE WALL “Obsessed and Unwanted” Review

AGAINST THE WALL "Baby, Did a Bad Thing" Episode 5 (7)
AGAINST THE WALL “Obsessed and Unwanted” Season 1 Episode 6 – It’s official. In this week’s episode of Against the Wall, “Obsessed and Unwanted,” Brody is out and Danny is in. For now, at least. Abby strikes me as the kind of girl who avoids a real relationship at all costs.

After the discovery of their secret tryst last week, you would think that Abby might take a break from dating in the workplace, but no…our intrepid detective moves ahead fairly quickly with cute Danny, who is now working directly with the police department. I like Danny, I do, but he’s going to have to step up his game if he wants to get Abby “Hot Pants” Kowalski to crawl into his lap again. This is a girl who likes playing with fire, possibly because everyone else in her family flies the straight and narrow.

By the way, I think it says a lot about how her brother, Richie, felt about his partner, Brody, that he barely batted an eyelash when he caught Danny and Abby sucking face, yet the mere implication that Brody had seen his sister naked drove him nuts and prompted him to get a new partner, who might be an old family friend, but might also be a thief. Not cool, Richie. You lose your bro card. Not that you’ll be using it much now that your wife’s pregnant.

On a side note, while I think the actress who played Richie’s wife is perfectly sweet, her Dorothy Hammill-esque cut was definitely a hair-don’t. Someone as excruciatingly hot as Richie deserves better. I pictured his wife less…frumpy, which might say something about my own, media-warped mine.

The case of the week was brought to Abby and Lina by the victim’s son, who ends up developing a bit of a crush on Abby. Want to know how to get guys to fall at your feet? Learn all you can about the Bears and move to Chicago. It seems to be that easy.

The vic is a police psychologist who is being stalked, but can’t give up the name of her stalker because he’s a patient of hers. Really? I don’t think HIPPA guidelines cover criminal activity, or else there would be no mandatory reporting laws in hospitals. But I will overlook that because I am not a lawyer like Danny.

As it turns out, the stalker, while being a genuine psycho who turns his attentions to Abby and even tries to abduct Lina, isn’t the one who attempts to kill the victim. That honor is reserved for her husband, who tries to pin it on the stalker. Again, not cool, bro.

So, it was a quiet week on Against the Wall, perhaps because according to the preview, we’re in for the revelation of some deeply buried family secrets next time. See you in two weeks!

What did you think of tonight’s episode? Are you amazed that Lina eats so much and yet manages to only gain weight in her belly? Did Richie’s new partner really steal the money? Let me know below!!
