Mistresses Review: Trouble With Goodbyes

at .  Updated at . Comments

What does it say about you when your therapist has to pour himself a scotch during one of your sessions?

It says you're Dr. Karen Kim, the ridiculously messed up gift that keeps on giving on Mistresses Season 2 Episode 8. Just watching her made me want to ask that man to pour me one too.  

So Karen realizes that her suicidal hooker/patient is actually Jacob's ex-girlfriend. Does she discuss this debacle with him like a rational human being, especially since he's a doctor too and can understand the ethical dilemma? Heck no!

This is Karen. She makes up some lie about her therapist saying she shouldn't date for a year and ditches Jacob over lunch. 

Which let me just say is still better than what Jacob did to Anna. Breaking up over the phone and telling her she's too young for him? Dude, that's just lame. 

The moment Jacob mentioned that he thought Anna lived in Karen's building I knew there would be trouble…but Karen was clueless. Instead, she decided that a quick smooch in a public elevator was the way to go. 

Now we wait until next week to find out if Anna is suicidal or psychotic - or both. 

April had me banging my head on the table. If I did that every time I felt like it while watching Karen I'd have to stop watching the show or risk giving myself a concussion…but back to April. 

Honestly, despite his amazing abs, I wanted to smack Daniel when he gave her the, my marriage is over line. But April was still mesmerized by Sexy, Smoldering until she had to look into her daughter's eyes as the kid wondered how Peyton's daddy and some trampy other woman could hurt Peyton's mommy like that. 

Thankfully, that seem to slap April out of her lust induced, morally ambiguous haze…but will it last? Does anyone think that this is the last we'll see of Daniel?

Elsewhere, taut, tan Toni was sharpening her claws and purring for both Savi and Dom but Savi wasn't buying the whole, let's bury the hatchet and be friends routine as she made clear in this Mistresses quote

One, get your ass off my case files. Two, in order to be friends I would have to trust you and I will never, ever trust you.


It was great to see Savi get some of her spunk back. We really haven't seen any of it since before the car accident. 

But Toni was definitely working both ends as she played the friend card on Dom, who didn't tell her to get her ass off of anything. Damn. That doesn't bode well for Dom and Savi. First because I think Toni's working them so she can cause trouble and grab Dom's corner office. Second, because she wouldn't mind slinking her way into Dom's bed…or more likely the top of his desk. 

Finally we get to Joss and Damn it Scott! Admitting that he was jealous of Harry was like waving a magic wand in front of Joss. She'd been totally immune to the hot Aussie all of this time but now that Scott has gone and pointed it out, it's all she's going to see. 

I hope she gets over it. I like her and Scott. He even got rid of all of the other shoes in his closet except for the ones in her size. If that's not love I don't know what is?

OK, TV Fanatics. Mistresses now has a plethora of hot men to be ogled over. Who is your favorite?

I am so happy Harry is staying! I was hoping he would not leave. I really want Savi and Harry back together.
I am also happy that Savi kept the house, however I am not sure where she got all this money all of the sudden. She now has money to keep the house, by out Harry's half of the house and pay the fees for changing her mind while the house is in escrow.
I really like Scott and I was glad that Joss said Harry is like her brother and that he is just a friend and he is Savi's ex so those reasons are why she would never date him. However the look on her face when she hugged Scott after she said all that made me worry a little.
I think Daniel will leave his wife for April. She was really harsh with what she said to Karen and Karen handled that better than I expected.
I did not feel bad for Karen when she lied to Jacob and he got mad and walked out on her. She should have told him the truth at that moment. I am glad she came clean and told him the real reason she dumped him.
It was just a matter of time before Anna found out about Jacob and Karen. So now Karen has to deal with another unstable person, but I guess that comes with her job. I do not see this ending well at all, but are they really going to have some one die every season when it comes to Karen's storyline? Where does Anna live? She seems to tell different people different addresses.
It will just be a matter of time before Dom and Toni hook up and that will be the end for those two characters on the show.

I also noticed a bit of a shift in the way that Joss was feeling about Harry, which sucks for two reasons. I think her relationship with Scott, has been great, so I would hate to see it damaged by her thinking she should take her relationship with Harry to another level. The worst thing is ,when Savi decided at the last minute, not to let go of the house, I kinda felt there may be a chance for her and Harry to reconnect. There were a few moments and statements by both Savi and Harry, that seemed to hint at a reunion, which could be disrupted, if Joss were to take another step with Harry.
