Blood & Oil Spoilers

Blood & Oil Star Previews New Power Struggles, Secret Affairs in Episode 2

The Briggs family tree is sprouting another branch on Sunday’s Blood & Oil (ABC, 9/8c), but does new arrival Lacey have what it takes to keep Hap and Wick from killing each other?

Hap’s daughter Lacey, described by actress Miranda Rae Mayo as “an educated, feisty, no-nonsense young woman,” was born from one of the oil tycoon’s previous relationships. Upon her return to North Dakota, Lacey is horrified to see her father and brother at each others’ throats.

“It’ll be interesting to see how she deals with [their feud], because she loves them both so much,” Mayo explains. “It’s inevitable that she’ll end up playing the peacemaker — or at least try.”

Lacey’s devotion towards her father and brother is matched only by her indifference towards the newest member of the Briggs family: Hap’s (much) younger wife Carla.

“They definitely butt heads,” Mayo says with a laugh. “I don’t know any daughter, on TV or in real life, who wouldn’t have a problem with her father being with someone as young as Carla — that’s definitely a whole thing. Also, Carla seems to care more about big business than about her family, and that rubs Lacey the wrong way.”

    Of the new shows I’ve watched, which is most, Blood & Oil is my favorite out of them all.

  4. Sherry W says:

    Show is good but music during whole show is too loud! I think the show is good enough to stand on its own without all the music!

    • Rhonda says:

      I like the show so far but I agree with Sherry W. The background music is way over the top. For much of the program, I had trouble hearing what was being said because the music was drowning them out. I’m hoping this doesn’t continue because if it does I won’t be watching. Very irritating.

    I watched it , I am waiting for the plots to thicken, but I love nightime soaps and I am happy to see the return of the nightime soap.
