March 4, 2007: Heartbreak HoteL Season 4, Episode 9

It's been pretty light and fun for most of this season's L Word, so it seems natural that with only four episodes left, it would be time for some heartbreak. The biggest heartbreak of the night fell on Shane, and I felt so devastated for her, especially as the camera revealed her face literally falling to the floor as she hugged Shay goodbye. She kept it together for Shay, which was the right thing to do for him, and she was the epitome of grace in the situation. I just hope that Shane learned it is worth it to be responsible and devoted to somebody. One thing for certain is that while she took care of her brother, we got to see Shane's true colors, and they were very different than the person we witnessed leaving her bride at the altar last season. She's really grown as a person. She made a damn good big sister, and she's a wonderful friend. I hope that even though Shay wound up leaving, that Shane remembers who she really is... and that she truly is not like her father... not anymore. (Oh, and every time Eric Roberts is on the show, I marvel at what a good casting choice he is for that role; those two even look alike.) OK, back to heartbreak. So then on the cute side of heartbreak, we've got, "Arnold is in my bed." I loved that scene: wonderful comedic timing and chemistry with all of the ladies and with Arnold. I'm really happy that Phyllis isn't a clingy character anymore, and that she and Alice agreed to be friends. Maybe now we'll get some more fun scenes with Leisha Hailey and Cybill Shepherd. It was so sweet when Phyllis told Arnold that if she ever wanted to be with a man again, it would be with him. The first-place prize for Most Adorable of the Evening is one Papi smitten with a Kit(ten). Do you think she and Kit will hook up, or do you think Kit will take Angus back? I've always really been a huge fan of Angus, but I love, love, love Papi and Kit... especially the side of Papi that we see with Kit. And I hope that the girls help Kit soon, because that spiral down into the bottle is not pretty. Besides, she's too good for that. C'mon, Kit, dust yourself off, girl! I would give Jodi and Bette second place for Most Adorable of the Evening, but instead, I'm giving them first place for Hottest L Word Couple. Wow! I love them together. See, didn't I say in one of the first blogs this season that Bette would fall hard for Jodi? Jodi's really good for her... Bette seems softer since she's been with Jodi. She smiles more often, she's less bitter, she's even nice to Tina lately. Jodi's good for Bette, I think. I hate seeing Max getting persecuted at work. I guess it was too presumptuous to give the benefit of the doubt to his boss (Brooke's dad). I felt so bad when that woman text-messaged the other guy in the boardroom: "He... she... it?" That was horrible. And then his family asks him not to come home to attend his own mother's funeral? Talk about heartbreak. I love Grace, she is really good for Max. It's just nice to see Max with somebody who seems to care for him, because it's been one helluva lonely road since he made the decision to leave Moira behind. Jenny and Tina: oh my gosh, what an entertaining disaster! If I were Tina, I'd be ready to poke Jenny's eyes out by now, or at least do something creative with her tongue to get her to shut the L up at those director's meetings. I did love Mia Kirshner's Julia Roberts impersonation, though. Too funny! Oh, and I loved the opening "Lez Girls" scene. The idea of making the story into a musical turned out to be a bit cheesy, but the opening scene was a great pace-setter for the rest of the episode. I'm really curious about how the Lez Girls movie will continue to evolve through the rest of the season. The award for Most in Need of a Lobotomy goes to Helena Peabody. So let me get this straight: She's Catherine's girl toy, administrative assistant and cash cow, yet she gets no money for any of the above? Hello?! Helena's smarter than that, isn't she? Isn't she? show less

Premise: The lives of a group of lesbian friends in L.A. make for a sexy and stylish cable drama that tackles provocative issues (such as gender confusion, prejudice and gay parenting) with wit and grace, though with an occasional tendency to resolve story arcs a bit too neatly.
