Storyline

Paul's latest accuser is Christina Farnborough, who baby sat Dee as a child though Dee denies that anything happened and supports her father, despite gutter press harassment. Paul throws a birthday party for her, which is well-attended, prompting Karl to be optimistic for his ex comedy partner's future but Marie's demand that Dee insists on her father's innocence leads to her fleeing the house. Soon afterwards Paul's legal team tell him that they have proof that Christina is lying though Dee, following a new recollection from her childhood, stakes out Christina's house to demand more answers.

National Treasure 2

After an interesting set up in episode one, I thought the second episode was a disappointment. It lost its focus on the arty direction and was rather pedestrian.

Paul things he can control the media and against his lawyer's advice takes part in a radio interview. However it is one thing when you are plugging your latest show, song or book but you do not control the narrative when you are charged with historical sex abuse like Paul is and things do not go according to plan.

We have flashback scenes with this young babysitter that he is accused of raping. As kind of indicated in the first episode, we also see more focus of Paul's relationship with his troubled daughter in the present and in the flashback scenes. A tantalizing suggestion that he might have abused her.

Paul's wife is keeping up a brave face but even she is beginning to doubt how well she really knows her husband despite his past affairs.

The episode ends with a reverse shot just as they did in the first episode. The pretentious directing trying to mask issues in the structure of this drama.
