Can you imagine the hell she's been living in, in the past 27 years?

If I had a nickel for every cigarette she's smoked, and for every bottle of vodka she's downed, I'd be dead.

Image what her autopsy is going to be like.....brain.....liquified, liver....cirrhosed to a crisp, lungs....charred.

She might be in worse shape than some of the Woodsmen we've seen.

I was wondering what that buzzing sound was.

That entire scene was fascinating and haunting. She's stuck in a destructive and tortuous time loop. At least while at home.

At the market where Sarah had her meltdown she bought Smirnoff vodka.  The bottle she was drinking from while watching the boxing match was just marked "vodka".

Well said. It's a literal metaphor on the TV set.

Grace Z. is great in this. She really knows how to bring the to bring the dread. I'm thinking of her in Inland Empire & Wild at Heart too.

I also appreciate that this is something you don't see on TV very often. A pretty bleak, honest portrait of an older, lonely, troubled person. There's a lot of loneliness out there for sure. But it's rarely depicted.

That was one of the more disturbing scenes yet. Just the same few seconds of the same boxing match, over and over and over, Sarah rummaging around for a spare drop of vodka, the camera at that angle, the shadows in the room.

When the reflection in the mirror behind her changed I almost had a heart attack, and then I realized that she had moved into the mirror's range and that was it, it was just the back of her head.

That was harrowing, and almost nothing at all happened. Pure brilliance.

Some classic boxing match from the era well before color tv.

It was sad indeed, but I don't see disturbing brilliance in that scene at all.

 

And there was WAAYYYY too much in that shot for me to handle. My eyes were all over looking for something to pop in.

My take on the looped boxing match: the guy who was knocked down but got back up is meant to mimic Dale- wasn't his hair similar too? As Dougie he is not the man we knew in the first two seasons, but he is coming back. The match announcer says, "and now we have a boxing match!" We are getting into the meat of the show.

Could that be the match of the poster hanging up in the insurance office?

Could be but even if it isn't I think part of the intention is to have the viewer draw a connection to Vegas

I didn't notice that. Dougie's (Dale) boss is definitely in his corner. Same with the Mitchum brothers, Jayne-E, and the residents of Twin Peaks.
