What I'm Watching: You, Me, Her

You, Me, Her: Season 2, Episode 6 "What the F Is Wrong With You Trakarskys?" (B+)

If season one of this show was about a whimsical relationship that redefined a marriage, season two is about the harsh reality check that all three members of the thruple are getting. Dave articulated it best when he made clear to Jack that if he didn't come to Emma's rescue knowing her parents were coming to town after Carmen sent him to tell him with Em mama knowledge, things were going to be seriously irreparable. It's not as if Emma and Izzy are having a wild affair with him out of the house, and in fact they're back to mundane relationship things like an attempted cleanse to curb Izzy's excessive pot habit and her subsequent rebellion that included an interaction with Ava, who was still trying desperately not to be as awful as her mother. Emma did mention to Izzy that her parents were coming to town, but she didn't seem to react and something tells me that she wouldn't impress the hyper-conservative parental units we're about to meet. Though Emma isn't blameless in this situation, I think Jack has evolved from a place of being somewhat on the right side of this to a far less sympathetic stage, since he was actively preparing for a date with a woman who wasn't his wife or his girlfriend, and he seems to have chosen her over both of them in the episode's final scene. I do hope we'll at least see the once-happy couple back tougher for as little as a conversation soon, but I'm not too optimistic at this particular moment.
