Episode 10 Recap: "Happy Endings?" Season 1, Episode 10

Having spent 10 weeks with characters searching for answers and trying to make the best decisions they can, I find it hard to stop watching. So tonight's first-season finale (there will be a second season) had me gasping nonstop. The biggest surprise was watching Jamie avoid Hugo at the minimart, then eventually slap that wedding invitation on his windshield and end up at the notary public's office waiting to marry him. Jamie is so energized by Hugo that in her session with Dr. May, who was very distracted by the death of John, she explains that it was fate that brought them together. Though seemingly inattentive (asking Jamie questions about the gas station), May is still perceptive and unintentionally antagonizing Jamie by telling her she's working hard to convince her of her never-ending love for Hugo. But nothing is holding Jamie back when she snaps, "You're wrong. I'm sure sometimes that happens." (Oh, no she didn't!) Carolyn, disturbed by Palek's decision to leave, was spewing venom first when blocking the door and calling him a coward like his father, then saying in front of Dr. May he'll never see the baby that will hate him. (If May was distracted, this sure got her attention.) I can understand the hurt of having someone you love leave, but Carolyn, who is smart enough to see the warning signs, was too self-absorbed to think this would happen. Even though Carolyn retracts and apologizes, it doesn't bring Palek back until she has her miscarriage. Carolyn repeatedly says she's fine, but with her glassy-eyed look we know she's not. So does Palek, who holds her while lying on the bed. The restaurant scene was my favorite and it was one awkward moment after another. While Dan goes on and on about how miserable he is and how happy Rita is now that she left him, Katie spots dessert. She takes one look at Hugo and gives him a lingering stare. I initially thought they might have had a past connection until he tells Jamie that a "lady is checking me out." Then as Katie leaves, still glancing at their table, I had to laugh when Jamie thinks Katie was actually looking at her. If Jamie felt weird when Hugo revealed he heard about her screwing the cook, it was immediately trumped when Anya came to the table to wait on them. The scene we've been waiting for all season happened when Dave went to the kitchen to kiss Katie and they ended up having sex. Or were they just releasing pent-up frustration? (And Katie was on top, just how Dave likes it.) But the clothing left between them shows that there still is a barrier to overcome and they must take care of themselves before they can help the relationship. This was all after a few nasty words are exchanged and Katie, thoroughly disgusted, snaps, "Then leave me, Dave." In therapy, Katie mentions she learned that not having sex isn't what's wrong - it's that they don't really know each other. (This is emphasized when she gutturally responds to Dave, "I don't want to be who you see!) In the end, all of the couples are together, but did any of their problems go away? Katie and Dave made the most progress in understanding what's not working. Carolyn and Palek are probably done, and how long before Jamie and Hugo end up in another soul-shattering fight? I think these stories can continue into Season 2. Do you? Some of May's words of wisdom: " Dr. May to Dave and Katie: "The one thing a therapist can do, perhaps, in times of darkness is to turn a light on. The trick now is not to be so stunned by the glare that you want to turn it back off." " The dedication in her book Bed Dread: "To Arthur, for listening, and to the men and women who have the courage to be happy." Final thought: Thanks to those who regularly read this blog and especially those who took the time to comment. It let me know I wasn't the only one absorbed by these complex stories. This show worked on every level: exceptional acting, thoughtful writing and detailed direction, particularly by Melanie Mayron (who directed several epsiodes, including the last two). Centering more on character motivation than plot, the show could be especially challenging for those who found it to be a mirror that they just didn't want to look into. Everyone brings different experiences with them while watching and those who stayed were rewarded with a rich viewing experience. I can't remember when I was last so glued to the screen. So until next season, to use Carolyn's words, I think I'm done. For more Tell Me You Love Me, check out our Online Video Guide. show less
