I am – Hercules!!
“Treme” has been renewed for a second season (maybe it’ll deal with the BP oil spill?), but this is how the first winds down:
Episode #8: “All on a Mardi Gras Day”
Debut: SUNDAY, JUNE 6
As New Orleans gears up for its first Fat Tuesday since Katrina, Albert (Clarke Peters) is sent a less-than-celebratory message by the NOPD. Sonny (Michael Huisman) leaves Annie (Lucia Micarelli) to her own devices; LaDonna (Khandi Alexander) puts her bad news on hold; the Bernettes make a Mardi Gras appearance, though Creighton’s (John Goodman) heart isn’t really in it. Written by Eric Overmyer; directed by Anthony Hemingway.
Episode #9: “Wish Someone Would Care”
Debut: SUNDAY, JUNE 13
Davis (Steve Zahn) concocts a remedy for the post-Mardi Gras blues; Annie makes a decision that Sonny takes personally; Janette’s (Kim Dickens) latest chef’s gig gets bogged down; Antoine (Wendell Pierce) becomes LaDonna’s unexpected benefactor; Colson (David Morse) warns Albert to avoid trouble on St. Joseph’s night; Creighton is inspired by a classic novel set in old New Orleans. Story by David Simon & George Pelecanos; teleplay by George Pelecanos; directed by Dan Attias.
Episode #10: “I’ll Fly Away” (season finale)
Debut: SUNDAY, JUNE 20
Toni’s (Melissa Leo) concerns about Creighton turn to anger; Albert and the Indians suit up for St. Joseph’s night; Antoine gambles away a big payday; Davis tries to convince Janette to stay put; Annie weighs her future options. A funeral procession offers its mourners a chance to reflect on the events of the last year in New Orleans. Written by David Simon; directed by Agnieszka Holland.
