We continue where we left off in episode 2 when Ling Ling decided to answer to her moon gods and climbed up to her speaking podium on the roof. God I hope this means we finally get to see some hunky firemen come take her down. The whole staff of Pasedena Recovery is frantically searching for her as Drew checks for her in her room, a place nobody thought to look before.
It looks like an episode of Spy vs Spy as Ling Ling crawls around the roof, hiding as the staff approaches and then pacing as she comes up with her next evil exploding plan when they leave.
If Drew is concerned, he hides it well as he casually looks at his circus-freak patient on the roof, says “What’s happening?” and then yawns for two full minutes. Sadly, the hunky firemen don’t materialize we have to settle for watching rehab technician Shelley try to coerce Ling Ling to leave her moon podium and come down to earth. How does no one here own a tranquilizer gun? Drew and the other-guy-who’s-name-I-don’t-know just stand and watch Shelley do all the work from the safety of the ground. I guess Drew is just accustomed to doing all his heavy lifting from the safety of his psychiatrist chair.
Finally Drew does the hardest work he’s had since the beginning of the episode: he holds the ladder as Ling Ling makes her way down. Safety first at the Pasadena Recovery Center
Then, Amy gets a roommate! Which means yet another person to watch what she is doing all the time. That’s what the paranoid woman who shot someone in the head needs. Good plan professional doctors!
Amy’s new roommate, Jessica “Sugar” Kiper, has arrived fashionably late for two reasons. One, the producers were scared that with their all-time lame cast the drama would die down by episode three. Two, she had to do about 50 more lines of coke before she could get herself in to cause the appropriate amount of drama. It’s a vicious cycle people; a cycle that’s enabled by the entertainment industry.
Then there’s more stuff that happens, but it pales in comparison with the level of crazy Ling Ling brings to the table.
