What I’m Watching: You, Me, Her

You, Me, Her: Season 1, Episode 7 “The Morning After” (B+)

Things started out on a really good note in this episode the morning after the threesome, but all that went seriously south when Izzy suggested that they play hooky and Jack and Emma didn’t exactly react well. Nina summed it up very well towards the end of the episode after her intense fight with Izzy when she said that she freaked them out because she was talking about being seen in public, and that took on a toll on the married couple as they crushed their respective jobs and then met to celebrate their good days. Jack got an especially bad reaction from his disapproving confidante, and it’s clear that this relationship would not go over well in the real world, even to those more inclined to accept different ways of life. Andy witnessing Izzy passionately plant a kiss on Emma wasn’t great, and it seems like he’s gone for good, especially since he already got his revenge and slept with Nina. Izzy seems like she’s in a good place and could even probably convince Jack and Emma to keep things going, but they have a seriously unanticipated problem: Ava. She’s been on to them for a while, and blackmailing them into doing her bidding is a slippery slope that’s sure to at the very least pique the attention of her mother, who is going to deduce what’s going on almost as quickly as her daughter did. This was bound to happen, but it’s still not going to pretty or easy to watch play out.
