Mistresses Review: Stupid Choices

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Well, we all make stupid choices, especially if we're the women of Mistresses Season 2 Episode 7.

This week the ladies decided to change things up a bit as Karen was almost normal (No, seriously…she got close.), Savi came clean and April fell off the the sainthood bandwagon…hard!

Let's start with Karen ,who inches her way back to normaldom after running into Jacob. She invites him over to dinner. He admits he lied about not having feelings for her... but there's a catch. He's dating some young, cute chick and after kissing Karen decides he needs to dump the girl first. 

After leaving Karen hanging for three days - which leads to a bout of intensive housecleaning - Jacob shows up at her door, smiling about dumping his girlfriend and immediately plants one on her. 

My immediate reaction was, that's quick, but apparently Karen's OK with the fast lane as she wraps her legs around his waist…or at least tries to. It's about the most awkward version of foreplay we've witnessed on this show. And as the two enjoy some post-coital bliss ( or is it boredom? It was a little hard to tell.) Jacob hits the shower while Karen sees his just-ex calling.

So, does Jacob have any clue he's been dating an escort or was his break-up more of a you're fired

Moving on…Joss was confronted by a new emotion: Jealousy. Apparently it happens every time one of Scott's patients ask him to feel her boob job in public to make sure he got it right. 

Just when I'm feeing Joss' pain, she loses the high ground. Scott no-showed on their date and she's left eating Chips Ahoy and watching The Bachelorette. (Is that actually a bad night? Asking for a friend.) Joss goes off on him, only to find out he had a 22-year-old patient die on the table during a nose job. To make matters worse, she bails when he hits the shower.

The next day, Harry sets her straight and I can't decide who is cuter, Joss and Harry or Joss and Scott? But this week I was getting more of a big brother vibe from Harry. 

Anyhoo, Joss finds the good doc and apologizes. She even admits to her never before seen jealousy. Scott beams as he returns the favor and tells her he's "100 percent, massively, actually annoyingly, in love” with her as he asks her to move in. If Harry would just decide to stay, all would be right in Joss' world. 

Where as all is far from right in Savi-land. That said, I'm absolutely loving Dom, who calls Savi out on her lying and makes her come clean. Then he sums it all up nicely in this Mistresses quote

So a guy you got into a car crash with showed up at your front door. A guy who for all you know could hate you, could blame you for the accident, could be crazy and you let him in?

Dom

Thank you, Dom! That's exactly what I was thinking when it happened. Then Dom calls a group date to get to meet Savi's new BFF and calls he guy out…

You're a guy. You're not looking to make a new friend. You either want money or you want Savi.

Dom

FYI, my husband confirmed that Dom's completely right on this one, even before Zack confirmed it himself. Apparently guys don't hang around just to be friends. Go figure.

Dom was angry and a little lost. I hate that he called a break but I get it. He has no clue what's going on in Savi's mind because she won't share it with him…or she just doesn't know herself. I still can't get over that they've never had an onscreen conversation about the baby they lost. I do hope these two kids work it out. 

Finally, we get to April and all I can say is What the Hell?!? (Actually I could use much stronger language but let's try and keep this review PG-13)

So sexy, smoldering is married to the red head. Not only did he lie to April but he also dragged her kid into this mess when he got to know Lucy. As a mom, I'd want to hurt him for that alone. And at first, April keeps her head as Daniel says he didn't mean to fall in love with her. No apparently all he expected was a roll in the paint. 

One moment April's telling him his minute is up and sending him out the door; the next she's at his door because sexy, smoldering is so damn hot she's willing to be the other woman?!? Don't get me wrong, the man's fine but nobody's that fine.

What happened to April's self respect? Did she suddenly forget what it felt like to find out her supposedly dead husband had a a mistress on the side and she was none the wiser? 

When the saints fall, they fall hard.

What do you think TV Fanatics, did April make the right decision?

Karen may have been almost normal this week but it's amazing how even the stuff she manages to do right ends up being complicated. I mean, boyfriend that used to date your patient and she is an escort? How awkward is that?
I really hope Joss and Scott stay together, they are my favourite couple - Harry with Joss would be gross, I just don't get that vibe from them. They have great chemistry, that's true, but for me it's more big brother-little sis dynamics/ really good friends. And think it would be interesting to revisit Savi and Harry, I mean, if there's one person that would get Harry to stay- it's her.

Oh why does Daniel have to be married!?! I guess because the show is called Mistresses and they have to have one each season. I have a feeling Daniel will leave his wife for her.
I am not a fan of Dom's so I am just fine that they are on a break. I really never bought them as a couple anyways. Personally I did not see the chemistry. I know there are Dom fans out there and I am sure he was right in doing what he did. However things were all fine when he was the other guy. I do thin Savi was wrong to keep Zack from him BUT even if she would have Dom about him from the start I do not think Dom would have wanted her to hang out with him. Savi is not interested in Zack romantically at all. tha being said I prefer her with Harry and I hope he stays.
I really like Scott and he and Joss are the prefect match. Next week it looks like he is jealous of Harry. I really hope Scott and Joss stay together.
I should have seen it coming that the girl Jacob was seeing was the same girl that is going to Karen for therapy.
Side note: Karen was trying to close the door with her leg...she was not trying to wrap them around Jacob. :)

I've disliked Dom from the start. He consciously went after a married woman, and though that happens often enough, he even admitted that he'd been attracted to her and basically wishing she'd cheat on Harry for years. Now that Savi wants to have a platonic male friend, someone who experienced the same trauma as her, not just some shmuck off the street, Dom flips out because he's insecure. Give me a break. Plus, his whole "what could he possibly give you that I couldn't?" line of reasoning was really warped. What does Dom expect? That Savi's going to stop socializing because she's dating him? Should she only be "allowed" to have female friends? He's really ridiculous and self-involved.

Of course she was not. At most, she could have asked him to come clean with his wife and THEN go back to her. But then again, as a woman who was cheated on HARD, I don't think she would be able to trust Daniel.
