'Terriers': Getting Rid of a Corpse Is Harder Than You Think (VIDEO)

'Terriers': Getting Rid of a Corpse Is Harder Than You ThinkHow hard can getting rid of a dead body be? It should be pretty easy, right? But for our bumbling anti-heroes on 'Terriers' (Wed., 10PM ET on FX), even the simplest task can lead to massive complications.

[Warning: Spoiler alert.]

Since the first episode of the show, detectives Hank and Britt have been plagued by evil real estate developer Robert Lindus (played by Christopher Cousins). Lindus has conned them, betrayed them, and involved our heroes in a ridiculously convoluted murder case. But now, Lindus is dead! Hurray! He's dead! And his body is located in a car that's perched right by the edge of a ravine. All the buddies have to do is push the car over the cliff, and they're done.

So naturally, the problems begin immediately. The detectives need to make the whole thing look like an accident, so Britt (Michael Raymond-James) switches on the car radio -- his reasoning being that Lindus would be listening to music while driving into a ravine. This leads to an extended debate over what type of music the corpse might like. Hank (Donal Logue) tries to figure this one out. " ... Smooth jazz?" he suggests.

Then the dead man's phone rings in the car, and Britt accidentally picks up. No, dude! Don't ever answer the phone! And after all of this, when the pair finally push the vehicle over the cliff, they still mess up. They can't even get the car to explode in a cool cinematic fireball! Aw! How totally disappointing. 'Terriers' really loves to mock its heroes by constantly defying their expectations. Even when things go right for them, things still just go wrong.
