Mistresses Review: Having Fun

by at . Comments

"Decisions, Decisions" featured the ladies of Mistresses reacting in ways I hadn't expected.

Well, certain things I saw coming... sort of. I had little doubt that Alex and Joss would hook up eventually, I just didn't expect Alex to make the first move.

The Breakup

After finding a naked man passed out in Joss' bed after a rousing night of sex, I didn't foresee Alex reacting by propositioning Joss in the shower. Alex has always come off as a bit of a wallflower, but this was definitely a bold move. And that turned out to be one steamy shower!

Harry's reaction to the two women canoodling in front of the fridge was funny, yet what I really enjoyed was that these two actually talked afterwards. I agreed with Joss when she said she wasn't gay. This incident came across as more experimenting with a friend, but Alex was obviously attracted to her. 

These two could be good pals who have a lot of fun but the friends with benefits addition could become quite messy. The problem is I'm not sure they'll be able to keep their hands off one another now that they've crossed that line. 

Karen wasn't having any fun, although I was glad we didn't have to endure another scene between her and Sam. I'm not a fan of the two of them.

For once I was proud of Karen for not turning over her notes on a patient... until I remembered she couldn't because she destroyed them all. Not her smartest move.

Now Elizabeth Grey has pushed her into writing false notes to show Tom was suicidal. This just continues to get worse for Karen and I'm afraid the downward spiral has barely begun. In the end, I think Elizabeth will throw Karen under the bus if she thinks it will help put this behind her - and she doesn't even know about the affair yet.

April's naivete continued to shock me. Who would consider handing over a large portion of their income as child support for a dead spouse's child without consulting an attorney? I just wanted to shake her.

Lucy ditching school to meet Selena Gomez was shocking…only to her mother. Lucy might be a little young for the rebellious stage but I'm sure losing her father has hurried things along. The poor kid doesn't even know she may or may not have a half sibling.

Thank goodness April and the handsome single dad hit the sheets. She deserved to have some fun! Plus he seems like a good guy and getting to do the deed on the bed in her store was just a reckless little bonus. 

As for Savi, no wonder her blood pressure was up. I was stressed just watching her. When Harry bought her that pregnancy test, my heart sunk. He looked so darn happy.  Then there was Savi, trapped in her own bathroom between a stick to pee on and an expectant Harry on the other side of the door.

When she told him she was bleeding I thought she'd made it up, but it turned out she was really spotting. Not an abnormal occurrence in the early stages of pregnancy. 

I was thrilled that Dom finally got to have his say with Savi. Yes, he is a consummate flirt but I do believe he has real feelings for Savi.  As he told her in this Mistresses quote

I don't regret what happened that night. Not for a moment. Not for a second. | permalink

Given all of that, I still believed that Savi was going to try to play out the clock on the paternity test results. Boy, was I wrong.

When she walked in the house and told Harry that she really was pregnant but that he might not be the father... I was floored. I never saw that coming.

Most of the characters on Mistresses don't seem to be having much fun but I sure am watching them. With an ending like that I can not wait for the next episode.

@lulu2613 savi cannnot talk about her pregnancy with Joss because SHE is HER sister! It´s not because they are not close... it´s just not so easy...You can say something like that to your family. In my opinion savi made the right choice... Even if the consequence will be... Next week ^^

Savi telling Harry the truth about her spontaneous one night stand with her coworker who has feelings for her was absolute stupidity and honest but we know honesty is not always the best policy. What she should have done was go on a vacation with her best friends and her sister and waited for the paternity results. Did anyone ever notice that joss and savi aren't that close? Joss never told savi about alex and the fun they had and savi never told joss about the pregnancy. April finally had some fun go April! Alex might be falling in love with April. Karen is making some idiotic decisions

This was a good episode!
Karen: She made a huge mistake at the end when we see her typing up fabricated note! That will come back to bite her in the butt! For someone that is supposed to be great at what she does she is sure not making good choices and I am sure she will sleep with Sam soon!
I know a lot of people do not feel bad for Savi but I do! I do not condone cheating but sadly I do not see Harry forgiving her and I bet that the baby IS Harry's.
It looks like Joss and Alex we become a couple because at the end Joss ran out on the guy she was hooking up with. It will be the whole "I fell in love with the person not the fact that she is a woman".
Love April and the hot dad! I hope he stays on the show for awhile!

When they're that pretty, generally they're not that interesting.
