'Entourage' - 'Sniff Sniff, Gang Bang' Recap

by Chris Jordan, posted Aug 23rd 2010 9:30AM
(Season 7, Episode 8) Look out Hollywood, Eric Murphy is raging like a pint-sized Hulk!

He's just learned that his best pal and client Vincent Chase has been doing cocaine -- thanks to the suddenly reformed Billy Walsh -- and he's out for blood. He tells off Scott Lavin, Vince's coke buddy, then he takes down Phil Yagoda over Drama's animated series -- more on that later. He finally confronts Vince, who is naked in the pool again with porn star Sasha Grey.

Is this getting to be a habit? Well, er, yes it is. Vince, who is relatively sober, pushes back, saying he's done coke before and he's a professional once the cameras are rolling. Also, he wants Eric to apologize to Scott and get Sasha a part in 'Air-Walker.'

Sasha wants the superpower to swallow anything. We're not commenting.

More to the point, Vince's refusal to take a drug test prior to filming has cost the 'Air-Walker' project its director, Randall Wallace. All this goes down during the last 10 minutes of this week's episode of 'Entourage,' titled 'Sniff Sniff Gang Bang.'

The showdown between Eric and Vince probably should have happened during last week's episode or immediately after Eric and Ari found Vince passed out naked in his pool. But here it is, and perhaps the bigger picture is Eric maturing and being a bit more stable in his life, while Vince is stuck in a state of suspended adolescence.

Hollywood can do that to a star. Heck, even Turtle seems tired of Vince's perpetual partying, even though he helped fuel his downward spiral. Now, the battle lines are drawn and it will be a matter of who blinks first, Eric or Vince -- or if Vince's behavior becomes so erratic that he becomes unemployable. Then everyone's out of a job.

The Vince saga dominated much of this week's episode, but there was a little movement with the other storylines. You can tell Drama will give the okay to use his likeness and voice for Billy's 'Johnny's Banana' cartoon. How can you tell? The ever-so-subtle pause Drama gave when Alex, Turtle's girlfriend, said she like monkeys. It's a done deal, even though Drama had not signed on by the end of the episode. By the way, Yagoda was bemoaning Drama's reticence about the part when Eric succinctly told him off. Maybe Eric and Phil can mend fences with a smoke up at a later date?

On the Turtle front, Alex's family friend, Carlos, needs $5 million to start producing enough of his tequila to satisfy the market, which has grown thanks to Turtle's hard work. Turtle and Alex manage to rope in Mark Cuban, billionaire owner of the Dallas Mavericks, while at Ari's office. Again, something's fishy here -- Turtle beware.

Finally, the fall out from the Lizzie Grant tapes has led to problems between Ari and Mrs. Ari at home. So what else is new? We thought there would be a bigger bombshell from the tapes -- oh well. Let's just say Ari got off easy.

Quick edits

Bluth sleuth -- Hmm, what scandal could Jeffrey Tambor been referring to on 'Arrested Development'?

Time's up -- That was Nora Dunn suffering the slings and arrows of Ari's verbosity during his marriage counseling session with Mrs. Ari.

Regarding Vince-Sasha -- We were hoping for something more original here then Vince freaking out over her doing a porn movie.

Outro music -- Jared Evan's 'In Love With You.'

I feel a Vince & Eric mass blowup coming soon. I can't wait to see Johnny Bananas.

I wonder if Bob Odenkirk knows anything about setting up illegal operations for a business?
