This recap of Get Even season 1, episode 3, “Get It Together”, contains spoilers. You can check out our thoughts on the previous episode by clicking these words.
The stakes have been suddenly raised in Get Even episode 3. With Ronny dead, the police involved, and potential answers contained on a USB drive, there’s a lot more going on immediately in “Get It Together” than there has been in the first couple of episodes – especially with Ronny’s death hitting the mainstream press.
The pressure is immediately felt. Detectives are milling around. Olivia is shunned by Amber and brought before the principal. She has no alibi for 8pm onwards, and we later learn that Bree wasn’t wearing gloves when she broke into Ronny’s house. This is problem with amateur vigilantism, I suppose – it isn’t exactly a sophisticated operation.
Even with the mystery heating up, there are still a bunch of teen shenanigans to wade through. Bree attempts to make a point to her workaholic father with the help of Shane, while something resembling a romance begins to blossom between Donte and Kitty – a relationship that is sure not to bode well going forwards. Juicy!
With all this going on in Get Even season 1, episode 3, it’s time for DGM to come up with a concrete course of action, so they meet in a cinema to discuss and plan matters. Margot gets to work on the hard drive, which is the obvious first step, which reveals some interesting info that actually implicates Coach Creed. He was sending Ronny £500 a month; the latest payment didn’t arrive on time, and Ronny died. Seems too much of a coincidence to overlook.
With that, “Get It Together” finds the show at easily its most dramatically interesting, and the relationship melodrama, while naturally played-out, is doled out sparingly enough that it isn’t weighing down the mystery. The short episodes are keeping things pacey, and the characters are personable. Plenty to like for now.
