Professional computer wiz John had all the tools to reel in a potential “Catfish” on last night’s episode, but he chose not to go sleuthing because he felt a thorough investigation would have chipped away at his romance with online girlfriend Kelsey.
It was a noble idea, but one that soon bit him in the ass: After traveling to Orlando to meet Kelsey, he, Nev and Max found a cocky swot named Adam instead. Adam had duped dozens of people for fun and made one pretty big declaration upon his outing:
“I’m the king of Catfishes.”
Was Adam intelligent? Sure. Maybe not a grammar ace, but he’d started an online community for people with social anxiety, and he’d tricked a good deal of ‘em by earning their trust. But even with his wits, could he ever dethrone Queen Mhissy? Or does his sleaziness earn him a royal spot beside Carmen/Kelly Price? Max, for one, didn’t seem to think so — he was so frustrated with Adam’s delusions that he actually set down his camera (!!!) and bolted. (Could the normally compassionate detective be hopping aboard Nev’s new gangsta train?)
