What I’m Watching: You, Me, Her

You, Me, Her: Season 3, Episode 3 “Tourist Lesbians and Millennial Twats” (B+)

The real question on this show is that if Emma and Jack really do get divorced, does its title still apply, and what happens next? This episode answered that question in a fantastic way, starting out with Izzy not being mad, just like I had predicted, merely upset that she wasn’t in on the action. Jack is the one who has a lengthy history with Emma, but Izzy seemed completely unprepared to forgive her if she opted to leave again, which she did to try to suck up to her old best friend. Hannah was less dominantly pushy but much clingier than I expected when she met Emma, and she ultimately bowed out to allow them to work through everything. Izzy’s relationship with her dad still hasn’t gone anywhere concrete, but she did get scolded for not really making any progress on her thesis. I’m shocked that she’s the one who got a talking-to since it’s Nina who is spending every moment of her supposed work hours judging the men who want to date her without any real introspection, and I’m just waiting for the moment that Shaun finally explodes at her. Emma pounced on Kylie in a big way as soon as she returned to Seattle, the most obvious sign that she was hiding something. Ending with Jack and Emma turning a discussion about having a baby into foreplay was a clever segue into the hilarious, earth-shattering news that, six weeks later, Emma is the one who’s pregnant, throwing a huge wrench in everything that she had planned.
