In many ways, this show probably isn’t best suited for an audience member like me, as I’m impatient when it comes to dealing with a slow paced narrative. Sharp Objects, like many other HBO TV series, is good at keeping the audiences waiting.

It is Calhoun Day in Wind Gap, and the town people are invited to celebrate what seems like an offensive fictional holiday at Adora’s front yard. There isn’t any new development for the show’s mystery; but there is new character development for Camille and Amma.

Camille Preaker stans Kelly Clarkson, and I’m all for it.

This post for Sharp Objects “Ripe” contains spoilers, and spoiler discussion from the original novel by author Gillian Flynn.

Camille may have grown up in the small town of Wind Gap, but I’m glad to know she’s familiar with Kelly Clarkson. She says, “what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger,” while talking on the phone with her editor Frank Curry. Well… or that line could just be a total coincidence and I might be reading too much into it.

I’ve been waiting for Sydney Sweeney (Alice) to make her official appearance on Sharp Objects. I don’t remember Alice as a character in the book; and I also can’t remember Camille’s time at the rehab centre being mentioned much. According to Refinery29, Alice plays a bigger role in the TV show than in the book and is a constant reminder to Camille.

Old habits die hard for Camille Preaker.

As I have read the original novel by Gillian Flynn, I’m getting a little impatient waiting to see what’s going to happen next in this TV series. “Dirt” (2018) focuses on the aftermath of Natalie Keene’s death and shows how the town is grieving with their loss; Camille continues on with her investigation and finds information that the police has overlooked.

I can’t lie, but the only reason why I’m psyched for this series is because of Vallée; and also mainly because I’ve read the book by Gillian Flynn, and am excited to see what the pages are going to be like on screen. I’ve only been acquainted to Vallée’s work because of last year’s Big Little Lies. I’m stoked to see that he has worked with the same cinematographer Yves Bélanger for Sharp Objects—a series which involves a murder mystery in the quiet town of Wind Gap.
