Love and Death is the second prestige television miniseries in less than a year to deal with the real life axe murder of Betty Gore in 1980, with 2023's Love and Death being the Armageddon to 2022's Candy—starring Jessica Biel—'s Deep Impact. Here, Elizabeth Olsen stars as Candy Montgomery, a Texas housewife who is unhappily married to Pat (Patrick Fugit), and growing increasingly interested in her churchgoing friend Allan Gore (Jesse Plemons), who is happily married to Betty (Lily Rabe). Nevertheless, Allan and Candy begin an affair and it's not long after that Betty turns up dead in her home, hit over forty times with an axe.
Elizabeth Olsen brings her A-game to this series in terms of sexiness, looking sexier than ever in a series of low cut outfits, very nearly slipping a nip in one particular nightie, and teasing us with some steamy shower scenes before finally revealing her sugary sweet seat in episode five! Elizabeth knows we like our Candy unwrapped and thankfully she delivers!
