Elliot is a mess. "I only smoked Heroin twice in the last two months" and "I spent 100 thousand dollars on cocaine"... yikes. Don't care for the guy overall, but hopefully rehab helps/helped him get his act together.
Speaking of rehab, the Cornelia Marie will be back for Opies. Let's hope it isn't the **** show that took place the last time they were on the show.
I found the editing of Elliot's breakdown so to speak to make it seem a little forced. I know people struggle to go to rehab and whatnot...but it felt like they told him to pull over and call his dad and say he didn't want to go and then to actually go. I wonder how much was cut out to fit the story. His dad seemed concerned, but not really concerned, for example. I wonder what happened to his quota if he didn't finish the season? I would have expected him to finish the season and then go to rehab or getting a fill in captain or something.
I feel for the guy and it does help to explain how it seemed he was providing for his kids (or said he did) yet still owed 50,000. Well, if 100k goes up your nose...that should explain that. He is the very definition of love/hate with Val...should be interesting to see how that all plays out.
Looking forward to seeing the CM. If I recall, they told us that the younger brother isn't around right now. I hope we get some kind of update. The season where Phil died was very well done and makes you feel for his kids a bit.
