What I’m Watching: Mrs. Fletcher

Mrs. Fletcher: Season 1, Episode 4 “Parents’ Weekend” (B+)

Eva was pretty angry when she found out that her ex-husband was going to go to parents’ weekend instead of her, and she was right to anticipate that it wouldn’t be a great idea. Ted bringing his new wife and son was understandable, but not telling Brendan that he was doing that set the wrong kind of expectations for the weekend. What was far more informative than how Brendan behaved when his younger brother stole the spotlight was how Ted interacted with him, encouraging his chauvinism by throwing around the football in the exhibit meant to challenge their lack of understanding about the patriarchy. Throwing away his brother’s prized piece of comfort that he found on the ground in the bathroom demonstrated his maturity level. Eve trying to give Roy a kiss at his funeral earned her the full fury of his son, and she was ready to have a relaxing and therapeutic night after that. Her earlier daydream about having a threesome with Julian and Roy was humorous, and she got to talk openly about her fantasies with Amanda while they were in the hot tub. Amanda didn’t respond all too poorly to Eve giving her a very passionate kiss, but Eve is going to find a real outlet for her pent-up energy, which may just be Julian. Margo is feeling tremendously awkward about her budding relationship with Curtis, and he should really try to be clearer about his feelings for her and that he actually has to move plans around for the night she suggested.
