We start right off this week, with Alec bringing Kitty some ice cream at the park. Kitty hilariously scolds him for continually bringing her food, because she might get fat. Oh, I don’t think anyone really believes that. She makes a half-hearted comment that she might not have been there, but he reminds her that she’s there everyday. She then asks how he knew what her favorite ice cream was, and I swear I thought he was going to say that he called up Nora and asked. But apparently, he just read her book, and in between all of the political commentary and family gossip, I guess she rhapsodized about ice cream. He does have the decency to ask after Robert, who Kitty says is much better. And then there is awkward silence, because it’s never cool to talk about your girlfriend’s husband.
I don’t know, this yogurt might make me fat.
Walker Manse. Julia is interrupting Nora while she’s gardening, and correctly guesses that she’s been keeping herself busy so as not to think about Le Douche. Speaking of, I didn’t know you could say “douche” on television until I heard Hurley and Miles throwing it around on Lost last week. Also, I’m thrilled every time I see Julia because I’m so terrified that no Tommy will eventually mean no Julia. Anyway!
Nora starts going on and on about Zinnias, until Julia’s all, “Girl, I totally gots some gossip.” She spoke to Le Douche, who is fine (unfortunately), and let him know that it was legally safe for him to return. Note that she clarified “legally” safe, so hopefully she’ll give him a good beating when he gets home, which should be some time this week. Nora is thrilled. Julia … not so much. Nora swears that she will give them space to work all this out – she won’t even call. She does ask if Julia will give him another chance. Julia says she will, but her face look noncommittal.
Sibling Scene! Besides whole-family scenes, these are my favorite. Sarah and Kevin are talking about a grey pantsuit, while walking down the street. It’s not clear at first who was trying on said suit, until Kevin says, “Oh, come on. I could put a tie on it and wear it.” So, Sarah was trying on the ugly grey suit, which she deems “recession appropriate.” Neither Kevin nor I know what that means. A recession is no excuse to lose your style, Sarah.
Kevin spots a saucy pink dress in shop window, deems is “gorgeous,” and says she’d be on fire if she’d just shut up and put it on. She can’t get past the hot-pink of it all. She also reminds him that she’s going back to work at Ojai, not the imaginary brothel he’s thinking of. His response? It’s spring and she’s looking for a fella. Aren’t we all? She actually strokes her neck and starts talking about how it’s been so long she’s been “touched.” She even gets all high-pitched about it, and Kevin starts making faces. Heh.
Nora calls Sarah to let her know about Le Douche, but Justin walks into the Walker kitchen and starts making noises about all the dirt everywhere. While Sarah repeatedly tries to get her mother’s attention back, she’s asking Justin to clean it up. Justin is not really feeling that. Kevin is getting anxious and Sarah rolls her eyes and fully goes, “Justin’s there: szick, szunk, grr (or “mutters” as the closed-captioning puts it).” She accompanies the noises with some impressive talking motions with her hands and a scrunched up face. It’s hard to describe but it’s fairly hilarious.
There’s just something about an eyebrow pop that I find irresistible.
Nora instructs them all to welcome home with open arms, as Justin deems this development “awesome.” He has clearly not been watching the same show that we are. Sarah warns her to not start planning the menu for his welcome back dinner quite yet, because he and Julia need time. Kevin starts talking, so Sarah hold sup the phone for him, and he tells Nora that they all need time. He is clearly well aware that this is anything but “awesome.” Nora promises to not pounce and says she’s on her way to the nursery anyway to pick up “bags and bags of fertilizer.”
Nora: Yes. Fertilizer!
Justin’s Face: Whaaaaaat?
Nora promises to have flowers on every square inch of her property, while Justin’s eyebrows slowly migrate up into the vicinity of his hair. She hangs up and Justin, barely containing a smirk and resisting the urge to laugh, asks her to clarify that she will NOT be at the airport the second Le Douche gets home. Nora’s all, “Bitches, I have at least a shred of discipline.” Justin’s smirk does not believe her, nor do I.
Senator Ranch. Robert is hearing the news from Kitty, and guesses that Nora must be through the roof. Kitty corrects that she’s “halfway to Pluto” and Robert comments, “We should be so lucky.” Kitty is not amused, and though he laughs that he was kidding, there was no trace of humor when he actually said it. She shuts down and says she’s taking Evan for a walk, but before she can escape, he grabs her thigh and starts making out with her. She reminds him that his cardiologist says he has about another week before they can “get excited,” but he corrects her that it’s actually only four days and he’s fine. She puts him off, claiming she’s just being careful, and gives him a little peck before leaving. I’m honestly very fascinated with what’s going on with Kitty right now. It’s been building slowly for most of the season, and it’s a very interesting character study. Good job, show.
If I can hold her here long enough, maybe I can force her to love me again.
Rebecca’s and holy-nekkid-Ryan! OK, he’s not naked, but he’s in his boxers and he is foxy. He yelps when he sees her, dropping a bowl, which she assures him is only plastic. He swears he would’ve gotten dressed if he knew she was there, and she says it’s fine, since he’s been crashing on her couch. If he knew she was there? He’s staying in her apartment! I think we all know that this was clearly intentional, seeing as how now that she’s seen his glorious bod, she will not be able to resist.
She clumsily transitions into asking him to come to dinner at her parents. It seems David would like to meet the gentleman that’s sleeping on her couch, and Ryan finally cottons on to the awkward of the situation, asking her if this arrangement is really OK. She swears it is and tells him to stop worrying about what other people think. He puts on a little zip-up thing that is about as efficient at covering him up as a washcloth. In fact, I think it might be Rebecca’s or something. They decided that it will be fun for him to meet her parents, and I am anticipating disaster.
And you know what? As much as I’m a Justin/Rebecca shipper (when did THAT happen?), I totally want these two to sex it up. One, it’d be hot. And two, it will cause all sorts of Justin angst, and that’s when Annable’s at his best. I just hope Ryan doesn’t turn into some Fatal-Attraction-esque stalker, because I generally like him.
Elsewhere, Kevin has talked Sarah into being a super-fox and buying that fabulous dress. As she starts to go to the sexy place in her head again, about first touches and whatnot, Kevin spots Jason Lewis and his hot self across the street. I honestly don’t remember his name on the show, but Kevin tells us in a few seconds that it’s Chad. Anyway, he and Sarah have a hilarious back-and-forth where he’s telling her to not move and to turn around slowly and don’t look, and she thinks she has a bee on her head, so she’s all, “Ohhh, get it off, get it off” about said imaginary bee. Haha. He finally tells her that Chad’s across the street and to not look, so she’s all “Chad who?” and looks anyway. Kevin’s like, “Chaaaad!!!” Sarah: “Ohhhhh! Chad!”
She goes on about how hot he is and Kevin begs her to not look, and Sarah tells him he should just go say hi, but Kevin’s not feeling that. Sarah clarifies that he’s bi, and then suggests that he should introduce them. Kevin is appalled, but Sarah says she’s forty and can’t be choosy. Um, even dating a bi Jason Lewis is not being choosy, my dear. That’s hitting the jackpot. Sarah plays the audience for a minute, asking why they broke up in the first place. He reminds her (and us) that Chad was “deeply, deeply closeted,” had a girlfriend who was more than happy to be his beard, and ignored his existence while they were dating.
Sarah gasps when Chad spots them and they smile and shriek through their teeth that he’s coming over. Indeed, he is very studly as he struts across the street and while Kevin struggles for words, he grabs his face, leans him back, and kisses the hell out of him. Sarah literally goes “Wow,” and looks around uncomfortably as Chad continues to totally make out with her brother in the middle of the street. He finally releases Kevin, and tells him that he owed him that because of how he acted when they were together. Then he’s just like, “So, how ya been, Kev?”
Kevin: Me? I’m – I’m – I’m ….
Sarah: (whispers) Married.
Kevin: I’m married.
Sarah: Bored now.
Title Card. That was great. I love Kevin. Did you know that he’s my favorite? Have I mentioned that before? Because he’s totally my favorite.
It is nighttime at Walker Manse, and Nora is keeping good on her promise, as she is potting plants well into the night. She even has one of those head-light things, which she uses to blind Roger Grant with when he shows up completely unannounced. Boo! She rightly asks why he was creepily creeping around her yard, and he tells her he was in the neighborhood. Me and Nora: “You live in London!” He admits that he was at some architectural conference thing and that he stopped by The Center. Nora points out that the reason he missed the opening was because he was in London. With his wife.
He says he’s missed her terribly and she starts yelling about her complicated situation in life right now and how she really doesn’t need him or his open marriage causing any more drama. Oh, wait, what’s that you say? It seems he’s gotten a divorce because his “understanding” with his wife doesn’t apply anymore if “someone else came along.” Nora, hilariously, is all, “Your wife met someone?!” Roger: “No, I did. And even though she’s covered in mud and carrying a trowel, I’d like to kiss her right away. You wanted to be the only woman in my life – well, consider it done.” Oh, okay. Aw. Nora is speechless (I can’t believe it either) before babbling about what bad timing it is. She’s gardening at midnight! Which brings up the excellent question of why he’s creeping around her house at midnight, but I digress. Nora can’t even form coherent words as he finally kisses her.
At Ojai, a song is playing about how it’s so hot in here and there must be something in the atmosphere, as Sarah walks through the halls, bumping into hot guy after hot guy. Doesn’t she realize that Ethan and his geeky glasses are just a booty call away? Girl, get on that! Anyway, she carries a big box into her old office, where Holly has left her a fruit basket. She is as shocked as all of us. But then! Cristian de la Fuenta walks through the door, and I just cannot take him seriously. I watched him on Dancing with the Stars for weeks, and I think because I’d never heard of him before, I can’t really see him as anything other than Cristian de la Fuenta (and his partner, Cheryl Burke!), the guy who whined about the judges’ scores and pulled a muscle. Anyway, Cristian de la Fuenta is supposedly “Cal” from accounting, and Sarah is very pleased.
She immediately calls Kevin and poor Rachel Griffiths is subjected to the ridiculous line, “Ojai Foods has turned into Ojai Dudes.” Really, writers? Kevin tells her she sounds like a gay Justin. That’s much better. They turn to discussion of Chad, and Kevin admits that he did like the kiss and that that’s a problem. Oh, and could she please not tell Scotty? Chad calls just then, so Kevin blows off Sarah and awkwardly tries to talk to Chad without sounding … awkward. Chad would like to go for drinks, and Kevin begs off, first noting that it’s a school night (heh) and then that he’s married. Chad is cool with that, because he actually wants the three of them to get drinks. Kevin doesn’t even know what to say that. He tries saying that Scotty is a very important and busy man, but Chad says he should just ask him. And that he hopes he sees him (and Scotty) soon. Kevin is flummoxed, to say the least.
The park, where Kitty is diligently putting on lip gloss or something, while Nora fawns over the baby. Kitty says something sarcastic about how she smothers them, and Nora’s all, “I drove all the way up here,” but Kitty’s already ahead of her. “You drove all the way up here to keep you form sitting on Julia and Tommy’s porch, tears in your eyes, waiting for Tommy.” I can so picture that. Kitty eventually realizes that Nora seems genuinely OK about the whole thing and asks if she’s medicated. Nope, she’s just happy. She tells her that Roger came back, and Kitty calls him her “British architect/swinger/lover” and she draws out the “er” in “lover” in this really funny way.
Oh. Em. Gee.
Kitty is genuinely thrilled for her when Nora tells her that he left his wife and said he loved her. She wants all the detes, though presumably, not ALL the detes, if you know what I mean, and I think you do. Nora can’t give her the scoop anyway, because there’s a father coming this way. And yes, it’s Alec and Kitty falls all over herself trying to introduce them and saying that they were just leaving. Nora is surprised to hear that he buys her treats, and when Kitty tries to play it off that he buys all the moms treats, Nora sing-songs, “Kitty has a boyfriend!” Kitty entirely overreacts, all “I’m married!” and ends up totally giving herself away. Nora’s like, “Calm down, Crazy, I was kidding.” Kitty’s all, “Oh yeah! Me, too! LOL!”
Scotty comes home to find Kevin back from work early. Kevin stammers all over himself before telling Scotty that he ran into Chad. Scotty is completely breezy and asks how he is. Kevin says he’s fine, if dramatic. He goes on to explain that Chad, completely on his own and with no help from Kevin, totally kissed the heel out of him, on a very busy street, in front of Sarah. And did he mention that it was all Chad? Because it was. He can ask Sarah. She was there. Scotty: “Wow. That is dramatic.” I love him.
Kevin then tells him that Chad wants to have drinks, and he totally says it like it’s a question that he absolutely does not understand or want to know the answer to. Scotty’s eyebrows react pretty significantly to this news, so Kevin clarifies that he wants to have drinks with the both of them. Scotty is not as opposed to this as Kevin thought he would be. In fact, he thinks it would be fun. Kevin reminds him that Chad just kissed his husband and Scotty calls him a crazy actor before deeming him nice. Kevin is shocked that Scotty actually wants to do this and we finally get to the real reason.
“I want to have drinks with Dr. Phillip. I loved him on ‘Tempest Island’. I remember when he went undercover to save Baltimore (?!) from the Casseedy family.” And he totally does a Phil-Koegan-worthy eyebrow pop somewhere in there. Also, what kind of a name is “Baltimore?” And why is a doctor going undercover?? Oh, I love it! Kevin realizes that Scotty is a scary fanboy before reminding Scotty that this is not his idea, but he will call Chad.
Holly’s, where Ryan is meeting the parents. They’re talking about school, and apparently Ryan is taking the rest of the semester off. Holly wonders if the school is OK with this, and Ryan claims that as long as you get straight A’s, they’ll let you do whatever you want. OK. We’ll go with that, I guess. Ryan says he needs to sort some things out, which is why he left Nora’s. He thinks he couldn’t get perspective there because the Walkers are one, big happy family who don’t know how to handle a crisis and end up dumping their problems on someone else. If he’s talking about himself here, I’m not sure I follow. The only problem he’s had with any of the Walkers is with Justin, and that’s because he very obviously was going after his ex-girlfriend. Rebecca tells him to shut it, though, because they’re not that bad. When she gets up to get everyone more wine, Ryan puts his hand on her knee in a not-very-discreet gesture, and David doesn’t look like he likes where this is going.
Ojai, where Sarah is still setting up her office, well into the night. Cristian de la Fuenta appears just then, offering to help and informing her that they’re the only ones still there. Sarah starts to hear porno music in her head. He takes off his jacket and at first I think actual porno music starts playing, but it’s just Britney Spears. Sarah totally has eye-sex with him.
At dinner, Chad is telling Kevin and Scotty that no that he’s out, he’s actually getting offered better and more masculine roles. He then wants to know about the wedding, and Scotty just happens to have pictures on him. Of course he does. He’s lovely. Chad says they are SO cute. Kevin tries to make jokes about the flowers, and I flashback to that awesome scene where he walked into Walker Manse, mouth gaping, and found Nora pinning yet more flowers up all over the place. Aw man, it was funny.
Chad tells them that they’re both very good looking, and Scotty fully twists his head to the side, like he’s trying to figure out a Magic Eye puzzle. Chad says he couldn’t handle being married – he’s all free like a bird and is content to leave marriage to the heterosexuals. Kevin and Scotty are looking more and more weirded out as he asks them if they ever “miss it.” Kevin’s like, “Miss what?” You know, sitting at a table like this, knowing that at any moment, anything can happen, like me jumping across the table and pouncing on you both? Our boys can only open and close their mouths uselessly until Chad asks them if they want to get out of there. Kevin: “Where … would we go?” Chad says his place has a pool. Scotty: “O, rly?” Chad then says that being married doesn’t mean they can’t “play together.” Right? Kevin and Scotty just look at each other, trying to communicate about what they think is going on right now. I think it might rhyme with “freeway.”
Ojai. Sarah is looking for a large ceramic pineapple for unknown reasons. Cristian de la Fuenta spots it on a high shelf, so he has to climb his sexy ass up a foot ladder, while Sarah drools the whole time. He then reveals that he used to play minor league baseball and that he coaches his niece’s softball team. He just gets better and better, doesn’t he? He leans in close, asking if there’s anything else she’d like him to do. She says no, and as he starts to leave, he mentions that he hopes there aren’t any fires. Oh, didn’t you know? He’s also a volunteer fireman. And it’s been a pretty hot week. She starts to take off her jacket, and I really feel like I’m writing fanfic at this point. He kisses her, and she hilariously starts groping for a pen because she wants him to sign a legal document, stating that she is not, in any way, sexually harassing him. He rips open his shirt and, using her boobs as a surface, signs a blank piece of pink paper. Yup, I think that will hold up in court.
Walker Manse. Nora and Roger are coming up with some ridiculous notions about how they’re going to spend their time. In Paris, or maybe they’ll get a house on the beach. It’s all very cutesy and gross, to be honest. Julia calls and thankfully interrupts them, though we don’t know why yet.
Holly’s House. David and Rebecca discuss Ryan over dirty dishes. She doesn’t seem to think he likes her, but David doesn’t like the way he looks at her. She admits to missing Justin, and to liking how David is acting like her Dad.
In the dining room, Ryan and Holly are discussing his mother. She tells him to not get so caught up in the past and that he should concentrate on the wonderful life he has now. He tells her how awesome Rebecca’s been throughout all this, and that he doesn’t know how to repay her. Holly, naively I think, encourages him by telling him that Hydrangeas are Rebecca’s favorite flower. Who would have known that Rebecca and Blair Waldorf could have anything in common?
More porn music, and for a second, I think we’re going to catch up with Sarah, but I am pleasantly surprised to see Kevin and Scotty totally going at it. Scotty wonders if they should move to the bedroom, but Kevin can’t wait, and then he wonders if Kevin’s so horny because they almost had a three-way. Kevin begs to differ and thinks Scotty is the one who can’t control himself.
Is a caption really necessary?
They’re interrupted by a knock at the door, and they assume it’s Chad. They go back and forth about whether they should let him in or not, and Scotty finally goes to answer the door. He totally flips out when he sees that it’s Sarah and her pretty impressive sex hair. Kevin leaps up and screams at her, while Scotty tries to hide behind a throw pillow. She breathlessly tells Kevin that she just had sex in the office and she needs to share with someone. He’s still shirtless and asks why him, while Scotty starts to put his clothes on. Sarah reveals that before he got married, he was the most promiscuous one in the family. Kevin just gapes at her and Scotty’s all, “Oh, that’s lovely! I married the family slut!”
She only now takes note of their half-dressed selves and realizes that they were about to have some hot sex. She even throws in some helpful hand gestures. She starts apologizing while Kevin and Scotty argue about who really wanted to answer the door. She asks what they’re talking about and before Scotty can come up with something clever, Kevin blurts that Scotty wanted a three-way. Sarah thinks this is awesome and Scotty cannot believe the Walkers and their non-existent boundaries. Sarah asks who they thought was at the door, and just as Scotty resolutely says nobody, Kevin once again blurts that it was Chad. Scotty’s mouth hangs open and Kevin tells him that he shouldn’t have gotten them into this. Scotty calls him by his full name and totally yells at Sarah when she tries to chime in, completely disgusted with them and their Walkerness.
I cannot believe that I voluntarily signed up for this shit!
He goes to bed and Kevin realizes that he went from a three-way to sleeping on the couch. Sarah decides that now that she’s ruined their evening, she can take her leave. Kevin does give her props for bagging the Caliente, and she apologizes again. He sweetly tells her it’s fine and to call next time. Aw, this was a good episode for them.
Senator Ranch. Oy, this scene is uncomfortable and difficult to watch. Robert has led Kitty out to an outdoor portion of their house (a porch maybe?), where he has prepared a nice dinner for her. She says “It’s beautiful,” in the most underwhelmed way she can muster. He promises that there’s food, but first, he opens a food tray and reveals a piece of paper. He is so confident in this surprise, that he even says “Ta-da!” He’s very proud of himself here, because he has gotten his cardiologist to sign a document, giving him permission to have sex. Kitty is just as disgusted as we are. Robert thinks it’s hysterical. Kitty half-heartedly agrees that it’s funny. He’s funny. She kisses him, but then wants to start eating. Robert seems to have thought they would have jumped right to the sex, so he assures her that he’s fine and that she doesn’t have to be afraid.
Don’t you just dream about looking at your husband exactly like this?
She’s very stoic when she says that she’s not afraid, she’s just hungry. And she manages to make the word “hungry” sound very hateful somehow. Calista really is doing an awesome job with these scenes. Robert, not looking at her, says he’s starting to realize that this is more complicated than just being about his health. She hesitates, thinks about telling him how she feels. But how do you tell your husband that you don’t want to have sex with him because you can barely stand to look at him anymore? She finally tells him that while this was all very beautiful, he didn’t have to do it. She then even admits that it feels like a lot of pressure. Oh, this is just awful. Can you imagine feeling pressured, and even somewhat forced by societal norms and expectations, to sleep with someone that you don’t even really like all that much?
She claims that it’s just that it’s been so long and begs him to not make a big deal out of it. He says it is a big deal, and she looks down, maybe a bit embarrassed. Covers her mouth with her hand, trying to hide from him. He tells her that she needs to talk to him, and she can’t even look at him, as he very forcefully tells her that this is NOT okay. It almost sounds like he’s scolding her and it’s just very uncomfortable to watch. Then, he ends with this gem: “Well, when you get the clarity and the courage to talk to me, you know where to find me.” You know, I think calling her a coward is just the worst thing he could’ve said to her just then and only served to push her further away. Like, no wonder she feels like she can’t talk to you, you ass.
It is morning now, and Kitty has called Alec to the park, where he has brought her coffee. She asks after Ben, and Alec reminds her that he’s old enough for school. She covers her face again (she’s been doing that a lot lately) and apologizes for calling him. He doesn’t understand why she’s apologizing, because he thinks they’re already friends. He doesn’t realize what she’s turning him into – her friend, her hope, her savior. He thinks they’re just friends. She rationalizes to him (and to herself) that she called him because he dealt with his sick wife for a long time, and her and Robert just aren’t connecting. She even admits that they were having these problems before he got sick, which goes against the whole reason she supposedly called Alec to begin with. She says he’s a great father, which we haven’t seen at all. I don’t even think we’ve seen him in the same room as Evan. She goes on that it feels like it’s just her and Evan, and Alec tells her that it sounds very lonely. She’s lonely. And she feels like she’s sinking and he’s the only one who can pull her back up.
She shakes her head furiously, saying, “God, God, God.” She shouldn’t be here. She needs help. What should she do? Alec tells her very gently that it’s okay. He doesn’t want to scare her. She realizes that all the things she loved about him, like his confidence and ambition, are just disappointing to her now. Alec asks her if she’s told Robert all this, and she says, “How do I tell somebody that …. I’m actually thinking about …” Leaving him? Having an affair? We don’t find out because Alec finally asks her why she’s telling him all this. She looks up, to heaven or to God, and tells him that it’s easier for her to talk to him then it is for her to talk to Robert. She looks at him then, straight in the eye, like she hasn’t been able to do with Robert for months. Alec looks away, realizing where this is heading, but not knowing or not wanting to stop it. Not yet. Not when she still needs him. She closes her eyes and she is relieved. She can breathe now.
This is what it looks like when you finally decide to do something about your sucky life.
Senator Ranch. Justin has come for a reference letter, as he is applying to some VA hospitals. Robert vaguely mentions the problems he’s been having with Kitty, which Justin seems to know nothing about. Robert wishes they could go back to the beginning, when everything was perfect, and then he could see the moment when he lost her. Justin is thoughtful.
Ojai. Sarah is wearing The Pink Dress, and it really does look ridiculous in an office setting. Sarah is looking around like a maniac and Holly sort of gleefully informs her that Cristian de la Fuente was just a temp. Sarah doesn’t cover her disappointment so well, and Holly compliments her dress in a way that sounds nice, but is really mocking.
Walker Manse. Roger is leaving for Paris, and mentions that he’d love for her to come with him. Nora admits that all of their grandiose planning was really unrealistic and she can’t just up and leave her family right now. He tells her that he loves her, and that no matter how long it takes her to get her shit together, his feelings will be the same. He kisses her goodbye and she is pretty devastated. Eh, he’s okay, but I really don’t see why she likes him so much. It must be the accent.
And now, we’re back at that gorgeous overlook, where Justin and Rebecca shared their first kiss. Justin is waiting for her and she’s immediately like, “This so isn’t going to work.” He begs her to just sit down and let him talk. He starts out with “I suck,” which is not the best way to win her back. He goes on that he was the one that let their families get in the way – he protected his family at the cost of their relationship. He says he’s sorry for that and then he just gets up and starts to leave. She’s like, “Wait, that’s it? No reunion smoochies?” Or maybe some of that was me talking. He says the reason he brought her up here was because it’s beautiful in the spring. And then he really leaves and she looks confused.
They’re just so pretty to look at.
Senator Ranch. Robert says he was starting to worry about her and that he’s glad she’s home. She points out that she was just at the park and doing errands. He insists that they have to talk, and she admits that there’s nothing she wants to say right now. And, honestly, he can’t force her to talk if she doesn’t want to, and that’s his biggest problem. He wants everything done his way and on his schedule, and he genuinely doesn’t understand why Kitty is refusing to fit into this prefect mold he’s created of what a good wife should be.
Also, I was watching my season one DVDs the other day, and I had entirely forgotten that Kitty used to date Rufus Humphrey. How weird is that? Even weirder is that Rufus Humphrey used to be the dreaded Lt. Spiers on “Band of Brothers”. Anyway.
Kevin has come to see Scotty at work, to try to end the weirdness. He tells Scotty that Chad called and that he apologized for putting them in an awkward situation. You know what would have been really nice? Not asking them for a three-way in the first place. They admit that the idea of the possible three-way really freaked them out and then Kevin comments that they had a joint breakdown, which I really liked for some reason. They’re just such a unit and such a good example of an equal partnership. I can barely even remember what Kevin was like before Scotty, because “Kevin and Scotty” is just so natural and lovely. Anyway, they make some lesbian jokes, and decide that from now on, they will remain monogamous, domesticated, and married, and they wouldn’t have it any other way. Neither would I, boys. Neither would I.
Isn’t he just lovely?
Ryan is cleaning at Rebecca’s, who is so caught up in her Justin drama, that she doesn’t even realize what he’s doing until he practically begs for some recognition. He really is getting a little pathetic, and slightly creepy. The Edward Cullen is coming out of him, but only the bad, stalkery parts. He tells her that she’s lucky to have a good relationship with her mother, even if it hasn’t always been like that. He then starts to question how his own mother could have just given up, and Rebecca has to cut in and tell him that he can’t try to understand what she was thinking. He just has to know that she loved him, and Ryan does at least seem to believe that. As she leaves, she spots the hydrangeas and he tells her that he just got lucky in guessing that they were her favorites. You know, I think hydrangeas are my favorite flower, too, for anyone who was wondering. But that probably has more to do with my huge girl-crush on Blair Waldorf, rather than anything to do with Rebecca or this show.
Julia has come to see Nora and tells her that Le Douche is not coming home after all. He apparently doesn’t know who he is anymore, and he does not want to be around his family. Nora tells Julia that she’ll handle calling everyone, as Julia breaks down in front of her. Nora goes to her, like she always does, and holds her daughter-in-law, whose heart is broken because of her son.
You know, I was starting to think that this was extremely out of character for Tommy, because for the most part, he was consistent that he was doing everything for his family, for Elizabeth. But then I remembered that this is the same person who had an affair while his wife was grieving the death of their other child. So … I guess this shouldn’t be a surprise. Really, any way they chose to get Balthazar Getty off the show was going to be unrealistic, just because the family has generally been shown to be so close. I just hope that this doesn’t mean that Julia is leaving. As I’ve said before, I love Sarah Jane Morris and I’d hate to see her get screwed out of job because her on-screen husband sucks. I guess we’ll see next week.
