Summary: Bonnie pushes Clyde to commit riskier crimes in order to generate bigger headlines and gain them more fame.
As what was expected, the second part of the 2 part miniseries was filled with action and drama as the most famous couple comes to their downfall.
In this part, Buck and Blanche join up with Bonnie and Clyde and helps them go on their bank raid. It gets gradually more violent the more infamous they get. To no surprise, after a while it becomes to much for Buck and Blanche. Clyde is in too deep to pull back and Bonnie is too obsesses with fame that she doesn’t care what happens.
As a whole, it was an interesting enough story. It is based on the real events of the real Bonnie and Clyde and you could tell that they tried to be as authentic as they possibly could. I liked the look of the cars and the clothes and the look and feel certainly did feel like the time period.
