What I’m Watching: Crazy Ex-Girlfriend

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend: Season 3, Episode 9 “Nathaniel Gets the Message!” (B)

The previous episode ended with Rebecca showing up at Nathaniel’s door to tell him something important, and though he didn’t seem ready to accept it, she was taking the questionable guidance of her doctor to break up with him so that she could try to be less obsessive. He should know that she invests herself fully in anything she possibly can, and there are plenty of other relationships for her to encounter and do her best to disrupt with her full attention. Working for Valencia was actually a smart idea since, when she’s focused, she’s great at work like that, but it also meant that she could finish it quickly and then go ahead and intervene in something she should never have been involved in in the first place. I wasn’t too fond of the plot that played itself out since neither of the characters were all that interesting, and the fact that he knew all along about her affair but didn’t care since he loved her anyway – for inexplicable reasons since she paid him zero attention – wasn’t terribly inspiring. Ditto for the poker game, which found Darryl winning at first and then losing his precious egg money, and the only (hopefully) positive thing to come out of it was that Rebecca is going to donate an egg, which is considerably less involved than the surrogacy I thought she would offer. What I liked most about this episode was White Josh and Nathaniel bonding over being so good-looking and being dumped, and their gay bar song and dance was superb, especially since it featured surprised guest and volunteer paid fireman Josh.
