What I’m Watching: Undone

Undone: Season 1, Episode 6 “Prayers and Visions” (B+)

It seems I underestimated Sam. I thought that he wasn’t a good person because he lied to Alma about her having broken up with him, but now that she’s shared with him the very incredible information about her relationship with her dead father, I would have expected him to do something to try to bring her back to what he believes is reality. Instead, he’s being transparent about the fact that he can’t actually understand what she’s going through but wants to do whatever he can to support her. I like seeing the interactions between them, namely Alma arguing that tons of people find her charming and her lack of enthusiasm as compared to his extreme excitement at the notion of going to a food tasting with Becca and Camila. It doesn’t appear that Alma is staying grounded much anymore, nearly repeating a poorly-received introduction to Darrold, and I’m not sure if we should be worried that we didn’t see Jacob at all in this episode. Camila seemed very thrown off by the fact that Reed’s mother wasn’t letting her pay for anything at the wedding, and it was good that Alma showed up when Becca ditched her for the other church. That situation quickly turned sour when Father Miguel tried to reason with Alma about the medication, prompting Camila to find herself unsupported by the man she thought would be an ally in her fight to ensure Alma’s mental health, at least according to the way she sees it.
