Episode 8 – The Town (2010)

Krista Coughlin is a Charlestown, Boston, native (with the accent to prove it), known to frequent local drinking establishments and “pal” around with the city’s criminal element. She and ex-boyfriend (?) Doug have a playfully antagonistic relationship. A real will they, won’t they get back together vibe.
But trouble is soon brewing when Doug becomes taken with a bank manager after he robs her bank (not a euphemism) and briefly kidnaps her.
Krista, a single mother (is it Doug’s kid?) with a drinking problem, is happy to maintain her association with Doug and his criminal gang, which includes Krista’s brother, as they continue their life of bank robberies and neighborhood barbecues.
Krista and Doug briefly reconnect as he considers a career change, and she provides him with some clarity about his options.
Krista’s life is soon thrust into chaos when she meets a handsome stranger at the local watering hole who turns out to be a FBI agent. He tries to entrap her with handsome trickery.
Frustrated and scared, she confronts Doug, wanting to run away with him and start a new life.  Doug rebuffs her offer and she is driven into a rage of booze and drugs and a car accident. At the hospital, handsome FBI man offers her a deal… She never sees Doug again.

Episode 7 – The Private Lives of Pippa Lee (2009)

Pippa Lee is a teen with a stressful home life, due issues with her mother and potential speed abuse. After running away from home, she moves in her aunt and her girlfriend. Soon she’s roped into her aunt’s girlfriend’s pornographic (?) photography venture. This leads to dangerous lifestyle of drugs and partying hard. One day on the beach she meets an older wealthy man, Herb, who takes an interest in her. They hit it off at his beach house party and she finds herself pursuing him, perhaps as an escape from the repetitive cycle of her “non ambitious” life. Their new relationship of course causes complications for Herb and his wife. After Herb’s wife kills herself in front on them, Pippa decides to marry Herb out of guilt?
Decades later, she and her husband, Herb, have relocated to accommodate the health issues a man of his age would expect to be having. They struggle with adjusting to their new situation, while maintaining old friendships and the drama arising within their social circle. This difficulty culminates in the revelation that Herb has been having an affair with one of their close friends. Pippa handles this quite well, better than her and Herb’s children do, and soon is having sex in the back of a van sub a man who has a chest tattoo of Jesus. Then Herb dies. Pippa, while troubled by the infidelity, recognizes that life and love is complicated, and bids Herb a loving farewell.
Now it’s time for a fresh start as she and her new tattooed friend head off on a new adventure…somehow this movie does not end with Walk of Life playing over the credits.
