What I’m Watching: B Positive

B Positive: Season 1, Episode 13 “Inflammatory Response” (B)

Well, at least this is something new and mildly unexpected. Gina did seem to feel quite comfortable and at home with Drew and his dialysis buddies, and a romance was probably inevitable. It might have been entertaining to see Samantha go after Gina even though she would only be interested in the kidney, and instead we got a quick connection between Eli and Gina. Getting her way too many flowers because he didn’t know which option she’d like felt like a move but she liked it, and deciding not to move ahead because it might complicate things with Drew getting the kidney didn’t last long. I suspect that Eli is a better secret keeper than Drew and can succeed in not having him find out that they’re still seeing each other for a while, but Gina will probably feel more guilt about it and opt to tell him when he’s not even close to finding out. His night at the cigar bar went pretty well even if he stole a phone number intended for Eli and claimed it at his own, and it’s good to see him have a win. I wasn’t optimistic about how Norma staying with them and turning Drew’s house into her own following the heat lamp incident was going to go, but it was nice to see that it ended up being a bonding moment for her and Drew, where she got to pretend that he was her son for the police officer who brought her home and he got to make her a genuine and warm offer of hospitality. It’s affirming when comic relief characters are also capable of serving other functions.
