What I’m Watching: You, Me, Her

You, Me, Her: Season 3, Episode 8 “The Insidious Lure of Pumpkin Spice” (B+)

Andy really does have bad timing, and Nina pretty much shut down as soon as he reappeared, activating only to punch him in the gut. Just as Nina and Andy discovered that they were probably better for each other than Izzy and Andy were, I think that Nina and Shaun are a far more solid pair, if Shaun is okay with Nina’s inconsistent and often condescending behavior. I love that Nina and Shaun ended up coming with Izzy to the party in the suburbs, where we were treated to yet another fantastic cliffhanger ending, with Kylie emerging from her car and being relatively unfriendly to an equally annoyed Izzy, ready to confront the unsuspecting Jack and Emma. It does feel more than ever like Izzy is a third wheel, with Jack and Emma trying hard to relive their old lives that Izzy has no desire to recreate, and then subverting her wishes by considering a place that they know she won’t want to live. She does seem to have dismissed her dad altogether after he bought her boots, and it’s probably better for her to consult her very distracted best friend for advice rather than a man who long ago proved his untrustworthiness. Carmen and Dave interviewing a prospective nanny was entertaining, particularly when their tunes changed entirely after she presented the extremely demanding rate that she charged for her esteemed services. At least they both seem to be on the same page and are going through this process together.
