What High Desert is doing is unknown to us. Is it about Peggy’s disorderly life, a recent art heist, or something wholly meta, like the on-going serial Mrs. Davis? In either case, it’s really difficult to care about this, and we simply don’t see the humor in Peggy’s attempts to haggle her way out of the problems her carelessness caused. Here, however, is a summary and conclusion for High Desert episode 3.
Is Peggy s Mother Alive?
Recall how we mentioned Peggy had crashed her automobile in our recap of High Desert Episode 2? It turned out that the accident had only completely destroyed the top half of her car, leaving Peggy amazingly still alive and sleeping in the lower half. Even if we may be critical of her, we hope to have her level of indifference one day. When she finally awakens, she just gets in her car and heads back home, where she runs into her sister Dianne, who is there with a realtor getting the house appraised. Despite the fact that Peggy cannot pay the mortgage, she is adamantly opposed to selling. She drives the realtor away, but she still has the audacity to demand a down payment from Dianne for a new vehicle. Dianne concurs, even if we are unsure about the outcome. To further avert similar situations, Peggy has new locks put on the windows and doors before she departs. Through her friend Carol, she also learns that Bob’s wife fled and that he has been falsely claiming that she is in Mexico. Carol and Peggy, however, believe that he likely killed her. The two women are eager to take advantage of a $70000 prize offered by the wife’s relatives for information regarding her whereabouts. Bruce, on the other hand, informs Peggy that he already knew it and that the reward had been removed long ago. Bruce is just waiting for his client, who might be his final chance to save his company, and it is obvious that he wants Peggy to leave since he thinks she would ruin everything.
It comes out that Peggy wasn’t delusional when she watched her mother board a bus in High Desert Episode 2. The woman, who actually resembles Roslyn, goes by the name of Ginger. Peggy wastes no time in starting a conversation with her and requests her phone number so that she can offer it to other theatrical agents since she is an actress. Carol suggests that Peggy compose a play about her life in light of the situation, and the latter does so while comparing it to Hamilton. She maneuvers around Owen to persuade them to stage the play in Pioneertown, telling him it would be completely free for him while generating revenue for their business. Owen concurs, but what happens next puts his faith in Peggy and his tolerance to the limit.
What Does Guru Bob Want With Peggy?
Guru ends up in the hospital after the thugs cut off his nipple and requests Peggy. The medical staff can reach her since her phone number is written on his arm, and she shows up to take him home. When Bob is practically unconscious from his sedatives, she gets him to sign a check for $4,000 and takes it to her boss, Owen, putting her foot down and demanding the money for Tammy. However, as can be expected, Bob phones the police and reports that the check was stolen, which results in Bob being taken into custody. When Peggy steps in to save him, Owen notifies her that she has been sacked. But here is the thing about people who won’t accept responsibility: They are aware of their wrongdoing but will tactfully negate it to achieve what they want, and Peggy does just that. She promises Owen that she will get him the money and that the allegations against him would be withdrawn. Although Owen may not care about the money, he must concur with Peggy since he wants a spotless record. But to his surprise, he discovers that his mother had actually paid for his bail, and as a mama’s boy, he is scared of what would happen next.
Peggy runs over to Bob’s house in the meantime and offers him Tammy’s money in exchange for him dropping the charges against Owen, but he wants to take her out to dinner instead. Bob tells her that he has a painting that was stolen in the 1990s that he wants to sell once their dinner is placed in front of them. He was hoping Peggy could help him with those relationships for a payment of more than a million dollars because she had previously disclosed that she knew some people. Peggy concurs, but she wants her requests met right away, and Bob agrees.
At the conclusion of High Desert Episode 3, Peggy discovers that her sister uses a locksmith to get back into her home and that Denny has been let out of jail and has gone to look for her there. Peggy claims that she doesn’t want anything to do with him and that they will get divorced soon enough regardless. Denny yet enters her home and waits for her to return home despite this. As for Bob, the criminals who injured him continue to punch him in the face and steal his automobile.
We’re not sure if this is a common perception, but we find it a little challenging to focus on what is happening on screen with this series. Although it is very uninteresting, which we recognize is the same thing, we don’t want to label it dull. Given how chaotic Peggy’s life is, that shouldn’t have been the case, but we believe it is strange that she acts like a bully who bulldozes through circumstances to get her way. We won’t be happy with her personality if it remains the same throughout High Desert.
