Episode 6 Recap: " Heal" Season 1, Episode 6

The tale of Katie and Dave kicks off the episode with them visiting Dr. May, and immediately I'm hooked. Ally Walker and Tim DeKay deliver their lines so naturally and with such spontaneity it's hard to imagine it's scripted. Dave is still resistant to therapy, first wanting to leave the session early, then defensively turning Katie's words around to put the blame on her. Dr. May recommends forgetting about sex to remove any burden and expectations. Later, we learn that May and Arthur were in therapy, but whatever advice they got isn't appropriate, at least yet, for the "fragile" Katie and Dave. Though few and far between, I love the much-needed injection of humor when Rita and Katie dish at the diner. Sherry Stringfield always gets Ally Walker to burst into hearty laughter and I can't help but crack up at her reactions. Rita knows her husband views porn on their computer, leading curious Katie to check out Dave's Internet history. (He reads Consumer Reports and ESPN.) She explores a porn site and eventually leaves the Web address undeleted. It's only a matter of time before Dave discovers it. Jamie said she was "tangled up in sex" when she was with Hugo, so let's see if I can untangle this scenario. Jamie used Nick for sex, not out of love, but because she wanted him to need her more than Anya. Nick wanted to get back at Jamie for thinking of Hugo, so he comes over for sex. But I'm guessing that Nick didn't mean it since he invites Jamie to meet the family at a party for the adorable Aunt Rose. Jamie tells Dr. May she feels "useless" when alone, so perhaps both Jamie and Nick have abandonment issues. And speaking of abandonment, Carolyn and Palek divorce themselves from Dr. May. They should consider staying in therapy to work on their relationship or it's most likely going to drift away. Rushing back to the office, Carolyn wants to get back on the fast track of becoming a partner, and to tell the lunch-cart lady to spread the word that she's not pregnant. Screaming kids is what it takes for Palek to choose his words carefully and finally confess to Carolyn that he doesn't want to pursue having children. And to distance himself from the whole infertility issue, he announces he's putting the house on the market. At the open house, Jamie shows up with Mason who confides that she fantasizes sexually about brother-in-law Palek. (Uh-oh!) Seemingly drawn to the bedroom, Jamie meets Carolyn, whose favorite author is French Romantic-era writer Victor Hugo. Coincidence? Random thoughts: " Jamie's tattoo means "heal." " Did all of the L.A. Law fans notice Susan Ruttan as Nick's mother? " After an intense sex scene with Arthur, did May sneak in a visit with John ( Ronny Cox) or was this one authorized? " I wish Katie wouldn't regularly back down and apologize to Dave, who ultimately says they've become "one of those couples" and uses the lame line "you can't put the toothpaste back in the tube." " What's up with Dave suddenly and inappropriately asking Katie in front of the kids if she wants to have sex? " Did Palek lose interest in having children because they couldn't have them or do you think he never wanted them? And if that's the case, isn't that something to discuss before marriage? " Dr. May says: "Sex shouldn't be the measure of whether a marriage is succeeding. In other cultures it isn't." Why is it in this culture?
