Nia attempts to murder Johnny with a hair dryer. How did Johnny not see this coming?

What door in the house has hinges like that? Was Johnny coming out of a meeting with production?
Why is there a decapitated, flying skeleton cyclist painted on the wall? Is this the questionable moment of the week? Averey immediately engages with a solid double-arm weavelock. Defending her boyfriend from being beaten to death with a hair dryer. Oh, who am I kidding? Inflict pain on Nia, and not be seen as a sucker who stood by while a girl whupped on her boyfriend with a hair dryer. The weave grab is always the preferred method of engagement when fighting on reality television.
It provides leverage against your opponent, target location, and, if done right, a little post-fight trophy to put on the mantel. Averey quickly transitioned this into a left-arm weavelock, leaving her right arm free to do some punching, landing a couple decent shots and even slightly bloodying Nia.
Round 2 goes to Averey on all scorecards. Jordan and Marlan come in and break up the fight. Keep their roommates from killing each other with beauty supplies. This is well and good, but then … Things calm down and Averey sits down in front of a mirror to fix herself when … Motivation: Give Averey a Sidney Crosby concussion.
I feel like Nia knew that Averey got the best of her in that second skirmish and was ashamed. Show me someone who just lost a fight and I will show you someone who is ready for another. Nia had built up this HBIC persona and realized that the only way to maintain it was to ultimately win this fight. Thus, the sucker punch. And the end of the episode. If you own a dog, you are responsible for taking care of it. And if you are attempting to transfer your boogers to another person via Kleenex, remember that a wipe is better than a drop.

Brooks was the first to kick off the sob-story oversharing because he had the first one-on-one date of the season. Where was the first date of the season, you ask?
A bridal shop … where they tried on wedding gowns and tuxedos … and wore them to the Hollywood sign, where they made out. Who wears Skechers with a wedding dress? After the makeout came the teary sob story 20 points that begot a teary sob story that begot a teary sob story.
There was more tragedy in this Bachelorette than the complete works of Shakespeare. Now, even I am not going to make fun of the genuinely terrible things that happened in the lives of these genuinely terrible men, so I will present these without commentary.

Tony Raines Real World: Objectively, Making a Murderer Part 2 is a less well-told story. But maybe that's being too uncharitable to fans of Making a Murderer and true-crime in general myself included. Unlike Season 3 of Serial, which still finds the human story even in the most litigious courthouse cases, the follow-up to the deeply affecting Making a Murderer often fails to communicate the enormity of its human stakes moment-to-moment, especially for most of the first seven episodes.
The reasons why are not hard to understand. This is not the coherent story of carefully doled out information, taking advantage of this case's countless twists and turns.Real World: Go Big or Go Home - 'Ceejai & Jenna's Fight' Official Sneak Peek (Episode 7) - MTV
The filmmakers clearly had less time and footage to work with, especially when it came to access to the devastating and heartbreaking affect these cases are having on the convicted men's parents.
The earnest love between Avery and his parents remains a heartbreaking refrain in this follow up Image: It relies heavily on title cards that summarize legal failures and successes in this journey to overturning their convictions, rather than allowing audiences to experience it and watch as the action unfolds in real-time.
Perhaps one of the biggest problems with Making a Murderer Part 2 is that it feels obligatory.
REPORT MTV’s The Challenge: Rivals III cast revealed!
We feel obligated to watch it, as people who've become obsessed with every minor detail of the case. It feels like the filmmakers felt obligated to show a more "neutral" though I'm dubious about even that perspective, and return more cognizant of the ethical criticisms raised by the original documentary.
And you can't help but sense that Netflix had a vested interest in seeing one of their biggest hits return ASAP, no matter the hit to quality that might entail. Does Part 2 need ten episodes that often run over an hour long? On the level of pure entertainment, it only really starts grabbing attention in the final few episodes, when Avery's star attorney and arguable season protagonist Kathleen Zellner turns to making the case for who actually killed Halbach instead.
