"I Wood If I Could" Season 2, Episode 4

Marin's little fantasy about Jack seemed too soft-light perfect to actually be happening. I, for one, am glad she's not letting him off so easy. Yes, he made a mistake with Lynn, but Marin needs to feel like she had her dignity back before she can start something up with him again. Of course, she still has feelings for him - what sane woman wouldn't - but I think she's right to keep him at a distance. I'm sure they'll find their happily-ever-after eventually. Two people making a very good go at that right now are Patrick and Annie. The planning of the bachelor and bachelorette parties pretty much goes off as expected. Annie presents Marin with an itinerary for her party (karaoke and pottery painting? really?) and Patrick reveals his bachelor-party fantasy to Marin. Annie's carefully planned party turns fun after the ladies start drinking, and a relatively tame party at Ben's bar gets interesting when a female mud wrestler shows up. Celia finally shows Annie some love (four hugs and two hours of karaoke) and Jerome is the first to go down in the ring. Patrick is next but is saved when he tags his bride-to-be and Annie's able to best "Giganta." I liked the "dirty" talk Annie and Patrick shared the next day. Those two kill me, but in a good way. What do you think Jack's job offer is all about? I'm happy he didn't tell Marin about it at first because I think it would have been a cheap bargaining card to get her to go out with him. I do think he should have told her about it before Marin learned it from someone else. That's really the trouble between those two, isn't it? Where's the communication? It's kind of important in most relationships. I did enjoy how their date started, although I would have liked it more if they were in the same kayak. The story would have had to play out a bit differently, but it seems more romantic to be a bit closer when you're admiring nature. And what about Sara and Minister Eric? We didn't see much of them this episode, but what little we glimpsed had a pretty big impact. First we learn that Eric can't have premarital sex. He's done the deed before but since he's taken his vows he's not allowed to consummate anything until he's married. Sara isn't sure she wants a nonphysical relationship, but all it takes is a sick kid and spending some quality time with Eric to realize he's worth it. I'm glad she's giving it a chance. She deserves some happiness. If it doesn't lead to marriage, that's OK, too. My favorite lines: Mai: "We're gonna get tore up from the floor up." Annie: "I've found that fun is more spontaneous if there's careful planning behind it." Marin: "I just need some wood." Marin: "You've got some nerve, buddy." Jack: "Only when it comes to stuff I really want." Sara: "When I fantasized about not being treated like a sex object, I should have been more specific." Celia: "That's not the only thing that's a bust. Looks like we're taking this party train straight to snoozeville." Celia: "I'm sorry. I think I feel a fever coming on. A dance fever!" Annie: "A mud wrestler is just a dirty stripper." Is this now Week 4 of "Jane Watch"? I can't even remember the last time we saw her. I'm not happy about her disappearance, but can they at least pretend to explain it? I demand to know where Jane is. Isn't she Marin's best friend? Wouldn't Jane want to celebrate the book's foreign sales with her friend if not her agent? Come on now. On a completely unrelated note, have we seen Annie in bangs before? I think she looks super-cute. And normally I would agree with those of you who are complaining about Jack being all grunty and monosyllabic, but lately I feel like he's actually verbalizing his feelings. It's certainly a step in the right direction. The Bering Sea, however, is perhaps too many steps in the wrong direction. Check out our Online Video Guide for more on Men in Trees. show less
