Franklin & Bash 3×05 ‘By the Numbers:’ Twinkie conspiracy

Imagine defending someone against some guy, then getting a call saying, “Hey remember Noel? Well she’s dead. Guess who you’re defending now…The dude suspected of killing her. You’ll recognize him. He was that guy in court today.” The cases Franklin and Bash face are sometimes a little too out there, but you have to love how their minds wrap around the legal system and take control.

So Noel’s dead because of a banana allergy and the suspects are Wendell her former actuary and lover, her sister who was seen going into her building and Wendell’s assistant who, surprise, is in love with him. All three seem likely, but my guess was the sister. Sibling rivalry seemed to be the motive and when it turned out she was sleeping with her sister’s boyfriend? Yup, that was who my finger was pointed at. Wendell just seemed like a “beautiful mind” type and harmless. As for his assistant? I didn’t think twice of her and neither did Wendell. That’s where the problem was, right?

A lot was learned thank to Franklin and I’d like to think I could defend a murder trial now with the endless statistics he rolled out. Sadly I was wrong and it was the assistant with the poison banana in the apartment building with jealousy.

Other than the case attentions were kept with Bash finally getting somewhere with the Aussie neighbor. First off, you would never say no to hanging out with Mark-Paul because look at him and you definitely wouldn’t say no to a man who asked you out with a Twinkie. They go out and have a nice time despite Bash always have that looming thought of her having a 9-year-old daughter in the back of his head.

Wait, Twinkie? Twinkies aren’t back on the market until July 15th. The dead-ex client Noel ordered them a week before she was murdered and sent them over to the guys before she passed. These were not stockpiled Twinkies. These were fresh and have now raised the question, are Franklin and Bash in the past or future? Think about it.

Snack foods aside, Damien is never interesting but when you cover him in bees? He gets a little more tolerable. Not that much, but enough to note that he wasn’t totally annoying this week. More importantly, the wall separating Franklin and Bash was torn down and their bromance was allowed to be in one room once again.

The jewel of this week’s episode was at the end when Franklin and Bash ask Wendell what’s up with his ability with women. His comic book guy/roofy holder mystique got Noel and that was a shock, but even Carmen couldn’t help herself around him. But yeah, Carmen…How does one live with Franklin and Bash without losing hormonal control?
