Take Three: You, Me, Her

You, Me, Her: Season 1, Episode 3 “No Penetration” (B+)

Izzy showing up at Jack and Emma’s door at the end of last week’s episode showed that she was also still thinking about the couple who have made her the biggest and most interesting part of their marriage, but it wasn’t clear the degree to which she is thinking about them. She was very upfront about the fact that she left a date with the perfect guy to come see them, and things were going great until they made it all about business, at which point she shut down and put on a cooler professional air. But when she went out with Emma, she was at certain points the one being seduced, and what Nina walked in on her doing shows that she is pretty much as invested in Jack and Emma as they are in her. Emma used Izzy’s distraction technique on Jack to get her way and score the first session with Izzy, but she also made a questionable move by taking Izzy to a place that had romantic significance to her and Jack, a choice made worse by her lack of energy due to the wild night she had night with Izzy. Fortunately, it seems that just talking about Izzy and having her in their lives is enough to excite them and invite some sparks into their relationship, and I’m sure that will only continue as Jack gets to have his second encounter with Izzy in the next episode, which may present similar problems even though Jack isn’t nearly as confident as his wife.
