ICYMI that’s Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Intersexual, Asexual, Pansexual and Polygamous, and Kinkiness. I’m all about being inclusive, but we’re running out of letters! Maggie wins the zinger of the episode with, “I was less confused when I was in the closet.” Gender identity aside, I don’t forsee #agequeer gaining much of a following, but that doesn’t make ageism any less valid. We as viewers struggle with Liza’s lies, just as Liza struggles with the guilt, but it is important to remember how she got here in the first place. She does have a bread-facing child to support, after all. If only Charles would understand that!
While we’re on the subject of Charles. It was so nice to see Liza come clean to someone who didn’t spend the next 5 episodes punishing her for it. Even lovesick Josh needed time to get used to the idea. It was refreshing to see Liza have a few moments with someone who completely understood her choices. If only he hadn’t been an opportunistic asshole! I would like to take this moment to point out that I TOTALLY CALLED THIS! P.S. did you all know Sutton Foster and Christian Borle who plays Don Ripley were married in real life? I’m sure they would not have agreed to film if they weren’t on good terms, but it still has to feel pretty good to have an excuse to call your ex-husband bad things. You can totally read it in her satisfied smirk as she walks away.
In other love triangle news, there goes Kelsey up to her same old mistakes! Can we blame her? Jake Devereux is a charming as Zane is smoldering. How is a girl supposed to get any work done with those two around? How cute was Jake when he asked before he kissed her? If only she had put herself and her career first for a change and said no! If only she would tell Zane if he really wanted to be with her, he would find a way to do it without jeopardizing her career.
Inkburg, Right Ahead!
Anyone else getting tired of pouty, puppy Josh? Once again we see the line between ex-girlfriend and mother figure blurred. He’s falling in love, while she’s swooping in to play mother-hen. She gives advice the same way she would if it were her own daughter struggling to make a decision. It seems like he takes her advice when he commits to a 10-year lease at the tattoo shop, but the look in his eyes tells me his real commitment is to keep fighting for Liza. When he asks her how he can know if this is his future, I really wish she had told him, “you don’t!” That’s what makes it worthwhile.
What do you think? Did Josh really take Liza’s advice to heart?
