I was pretty underwhelmed by the Basic Black (contrived) conflict today. Why would Kate want to sabotage Theresa so much that it is worth jeopardizing her own success? Why is Theresa sitting back being passive while Nicole fights her battles? I thought “Pierre” played on some unfortunate stereotypes. But this did make me laugh:
I am still looking forward to the big fashion show. I love an event where the whole town shows up, and this looks like it will provide some big drama. Bring it on!
This health crisis for Thomas is obviously going to lead to Abby finding out Chad is his father — they telegraphed that very clearly at the end of the episode.”We need a full genetic workup of you and the baby’s father.” Cut to Chad:
Obvious isn’t necessarily bad, however. I was impressed with the way they worked in Abby’s childhood illness, and we should get some good angst if Abby has to go talk to Ben in prison. (I know Rob Wilson is coming back for a few episodes, though I don’t know if it’s for this. I hope so!) The question now is how Chad will react now that he’s brainwashed. Will it be what finally breaks through? Perhaps temporarily, until Andre snaps, “La familia!” at whips him back into line.
Steve and Kayla are, of course, adorable:
Not much in the way of story, but they sounded just like a real life couple, debating whether to get dressed to go out or stay home on the couch. I loved that Kayla got “invested” in the game and wasn’t sure she wanted to go out after all.
Steve’s black leather “formal” blazer called this look to mind:
Just needs a bolo tie!
