What I’m Watching: The L Word: Generation Q

The L Word: Generation Q: Season 1, Episode 7 “Lose It All” (B+)

It was clear from the start that a thruple would prove to be complicated for Alice, but this is not how I expected it to go. It didn’t help that Alice had a pretty terrible day at work where the meeting in which she hoped to pitch that Drew should be fired resulted in the news that her show might be cancelled and that he was essentially her only hope to avoid that fate. Coming home to find Nat and Gigi in bed together sent her over the edge, and she’s in part right that they’re working through their marital issues in a way that might not leave space for her. Hopefully this isn’t the end of her relationship with Nat, though it certainly looks that way at the moment. Bette seemed hopeful at the notion of reconciliation with Tina, and finding out that she was engaged to someone else was hard to hear. Maybe now that Sophie, in an understandable moment of grief, kissed Finley, something will finally happen between Dani and Bette, who humorously gets to be the calmer and less abrasive person for once. Tess helped Shane work through some of her hang-ups with Quiara, a relationship that still doesn’t seem destined to last. It was nice to see a focus on Micah as his mom came to town to meet Jose stoned and made things bad right away by bringing up elements of his childhood as a girl. She eventually made up for that behavior with a ringing endorsement of the authenticity of their connection.
