Should be titled "Done to Death."

Yeah, when you look at the people involved in this case, it makes you realize / remember that married people with kids in the heartland looked old and stodgy circa 1980. They weren't fat (as they are today), but their styling aged them beyond belief. Short perms for the women, polyester slacks with big-ass striped ties for the men, and both sexes wore enormous glasses that dwarfed their features.

I ended up rewatching Candy over the weekend and it's much better than Love and Death so far. Melanie Lynskey plays Betty far more believably than Rabe, who is kind of disconnected and hard to sympathise with. I do wonder if maybe the family's criticisms over Lynskey's Betty have made Rabe put less emotion into it. Even though Lynskey's Betty was annoying and whiney, I still felt empathy for her but feel nothing for Rabe's version.
Also, the pacing is a lot better and it doesn't drag as much. I'll still finish Love and Death though if the next episode is an improvement on the last 3.

r100 - I agree - HBOMax made the first two episodes available right off then the others were one a week up to the 5th one. I will just wait until the last two are dropped then rewatch the 5th one then the last two. The most recent one (as I noted above) was top notch - this was my first exposure to Elizabeth Olsen. For some reason I thought she was one of those creepy twin sister clones. I watched a recent movie on HBO 'Ingrid Goes West' in which Elizabeth Olsen and Aubrey Plaza were the lead characters. It was a quirky movie (which I like) and it was a worthwhile watch. That Aubrey Plaza (White Lotus Season 2) plays some offbeat characters and her most weird was 'Life After Beth' playing a reincarnated zombie or something like that.
Anyway, I look forward to the conclusion of this limited series. There are those that saw the other versions of this story but from episode 3 on this one has certainly been worth the time.

I’m rewatching Candy while waiting for the final two episodes of Love and Death to be released.
The portrayals of Candy Montgomery are very different in each of these series. Candy is much more likable, softer/kinder, in Love and Death. She’s portrayed as arrogant and self centered/self serving/self involved in Candy. I’m left wondering what the real life Candy was really like.
The same can be said regarding the portrayals of Betty. Thus far, Candy devotes more time to developing Betty’s character. Melanie Lynskey is phenomenal. Which portrayal is the more accurate depiction of Betty? They are so different.

|by Anonymous||reply 130||May 22, 2023 9:31 PM|
A few thoughts about the ax:
If Betty was the only one who knew the whereabouts of the ax and did indeed go after Candy first, what an odd weapon of choice. Why not just grab a knife? Or hammer? Why a bulky ax? Was it in a handy location off the laundry room?
Allen said only Betty would have known the location of the ax. Candy had previously been in Betty and Allen’s house when Allen wasn’t home. How does he know she never went into the garage? She may have seen the ax prior to the day of the murder. Would choosing an ax as a murder weapon suggest the murder was premeditated?
If Candy did kill Betty in self defense, “overkill” doesn’t seem completely unusual for someone in a fight or flight situation. My mind goes to the Houston dentist who repeatedly ran over her husband at a hotel after seeing him there with his mistress. I think a person can go into a state of shock and their brain shuts down and they are acting and reacting on emotion and instinct. Kind of an out of body experience. If Candy was acting in self defense, I have empathy for her.
Knowing how meticulous Candy was (planning the affair, the “affair contract”, planning the liaisons, etc.) one would expect Candy to have been more meticulous in planning Betty’s murder if the murder had indeed been premeditated. That said, if she chose the ax as the weapon thinking no one would suspect a woman as the killer, perhaps there is an argument that there was premeditation.

Based on the visit to the psychiatrist, Candy certainly had major issues from her childhood that would cause her to snap when being accosted with an ax. I presume the shrink will be called as a witness.
The thing that makes this version so different than "Candy" is that Elizabeth Olsen is beautiful and likeable. You want her to get off. In the other, she just seems deranged.

It's so bizarre that they allowed the hypnosis testimony at trial.
I guess the 1980s were a different time.

Olsen is amazing! And yet Jennifer Lawrence has an Oscar.

Candy's lawyer in the shower was hot!

I had no idea that Candy's lawyer committed suicide in 98.

Any recent pictures of Candy?

Add to the comments here about Olsen. I'd thought she was great in martha martha martha martha or whatever that movie was, and then she got swallowed up in the superhero cloud of crap (I think actors are getting big bucks for these comic book movies but, to me, stop being actors...) and I'd forgotten her. In Love and Death she did that hard thing to play a basic forms, big footprint character - a cliche: southern christian housewife... and make her individual and "subtle" in her broad brush details.

Tom Pelphrey is HOT in this as Candy’s lawyer. He definitely thinner (and tanner) than I’ve ever see him. Good for Kayley Cuoco for getting that D.

I loved her in Wind River - horrifyingly depressing movie, but amazing music, cinematography, and she was great.

I hope she continues to take on good roles. She's got the skills for an Oscar nod/win at some point. I wonder how she is in real life, though. I hope she's not a mega, narcissistic cunt who treats people like shit. Anyone heard anything about her?
