What I’m Watching: Call Me Kat

Call Me Kat: Season 2, Episode 16 “Call Me What the Kat Dragged In” (B+)

It was very uncomfortable to see a dejected Oscar come to Kat’s lacking any of the liveliness and positivity that we’ve previously seen, and Kat trying to be lighthearted and funny only made it worse. Randi was right to warn her not to read a haiku, but she already had a breakup gift basket and playlist ready, underlining that she does care about him, which is not a sentiment that’s going to make him feel good at the moment. Having her friends show up while she was singing into a spoon was a nice gesture, though Max’s attempt to reassure her about how she could be single for the next forty years of her life didn’t quite come out as planned. Running into Nick during her awkward solo date was the perfect opportunity for her to give in to impulses that she might otherwise deny, and she wasn’t quite as subtle about it as she had planned to be given his very obvious exit down the stairs. He’s also not going anywhere given that he took her up on the suggestion she accidentally gave him and is now her landlord, which is going to mean that he’ll be around a lot, preventing any possibility of her getting back together with Oscar. Carter going over to Randi’s without her permission nearly broke their relationship, but fortunately she gave in and realized she was ready for a next step, one that still comes with rules but is a definite progression in the right direction.
