Claws Season 3 Episode 4 Boy Bye review

The latest episode of Claws season 3 showed how far Desna is willing to go to save Roller. I’m still not a fan of her and Roller becoming a serious couple. However, I did enjoy the scenes they shared in ‘Boy, Bye,’ and I’m kind of looking forward to seeing what happens to them.

I was provided with a free screener of ‘Boy, Bye’ for review. The opinions are my own. 

‘Boy, Bye’ opened with Desna not being happy about Roller standing her up last night. She shared her frustrations with her friends (who were ready to offer support). None of them knew Roller had been kidnapped by the Lovestones and was being beaten up by Melba.

Virginia and Dean were having relationship troubles, too. I’m not a fan of the drama being inserted into her and Dean’s relationship. It feels forced because of Virginia’s new potential love interest being Eric (Jenn’s ex-boyfriend).

I mean, seriously? I’m supposed to believe, considering how close Desna’s crew is with each other as well as factoring in Virginia’s curiosity, Virginia doesn’t know who Jenn’s ex-boyfriend is, especially when he is giving Jenn a hard time about gaining custody of Brienne? I don’t buy it.

Polly is also getting close to Joe (who is a murderer). At least, she was able to use him to find Desna and Roller’s location. However, I’m not really sure if she should continue trusting Joe. The entire situation can turn very dangerous if the Lovestones find out about him sharing information behind their backs. Dr. Ken might come in to help save Polly at some point though. I wouldn’t be surprised if that happens.

I liked how ‘Boy, Bye’ showed Desna what the Lovestones are capable of. They freaking cut off Roller’s toe and sent it to her!

The episode did a lot to explain the conflicting feelings Desna has for Roller. Both of them have tried to kill each other (in the not so distant past). But they do share a bond they can’t ignore. Their relationship is definitely not a healthy one, and I don’t think the show is ignoring that aspect of whatever it is they have for each other.

As far as my opinion goes, nothing really happened in ‘Boy, Bye,’ instead of a few relationships changing. The story felt like a setup for the war as well as a whole lot of drama that is yet to come.

It will be interesting to see how Desna and the rest try and retaliate against the Lovestones. Mac seems to have Dean on his side. So, things aren’t going to be easy for Desna.

What did you think of ‘Boy, Bye’? Let us know.
