Mistresses Review: Sexy, Smoldering, Secret Agent

at .  Updated at . Comments

We all knew there had to be more to sexy, smoldering Daniel when April dumped his lying, cheating butt a coupled of weeks ago - but did anyone expect him to be working for the FBI?

Talk about going above and beyond to get the job done. I'd love to read the reports he filed on exactly what it took to get those listening devices planted in April's home. 

However, let's back up a step as we review Mistresses Season 2 Episode 10

Last week's stalker turned out to be this week's FBI agent knocking at April's door and I loved how Savi pointed out that April has been committing fraud for the last year by keeping the insurance money and cashing the social security checks for her not-so-dead hubby. Playing nice with the FBI might be a good idea…

That is until Karen runs over with her crazy-eyed conspiracy theory that the Feds have bugged April's house and phone. As nutty as Karen looked when she said it, she turned out to be right, leaving April yelling, "Hell, no!" as she stormed into Fed headquarters to lodge a who bugged my 12-year-olds bedroom complaint, only to find Daniel in an incredibly unsexy FBI windbreaker. Where's a low slung towel or a tight fitting Henley when you need one? 

So was Daniel really  in love with April when they got all hot and bothered with the paint or was it all a part of his master under the covers plan?

Moving on to Karen…the good doctor had a sleepover, with her patient. We're pretty sure slumber parties are a no-no in the doctor / patient handbook. But as Jacob sweetly and naively put it, it's just who Karen is. So when Anna called in the middle of a panic attack from her sleazy apartment, Karen picked her up, brought her home and ordered Pad Thai. 

Oddly enough, this whole new twisted form of therapy got an I love you out of Jacob. Well, he can't say he didn't know what he was getting in to. 

In a weird fit of jealousy, Harry tried to sabotage Joss by making her doubt she's the kind of girl Scott's mom and grandma June would like. It was really mean and I was so relieved when Harry called to apologize, even though it came close to giving Joss a self destructive meltdown. 

Thankfully Scott's mom loved everything that we do about Joss and gave her miniature soaps to prove it. One of the sweeter moments was Joss and Scott in bed as she tried to explain that since her mom was rarely around, she didn't understand why it meant so much to Scott to have his mom like her.

If I had a family that big who loved me that much I would definitely care what they thought.

Joss

Later, Joss flies into panic mode once again. Things are just too good. What is wrong with Scott that no one snatched him up before now. Harry redeemed himself with this Mistresses quote

Maybe he was just waiting his whole life for you.

Harry

But the biggest aww moment was when Scott gave Joss an amazing pair of heels with Grandma June's wedding ring inside. He even got down on one knee. The best part was that Joss didn't hesitate for a minute. She looked as happy as we have ever seen her. Fingers crossed these two kids make it down the aisle.

Because as Joss and Scott were building a life together, Savi and Dom were falling apart. 

Taut, tan Toni turned out to be way more treacherous than Dom ever expected. When she hit him with sexual harassment charges, he never saw it coming…

I told you you wouldn't see it happening. You'd just suddenly find yourself here, on the losing end of this game.

Toni

Please tell me that Dom and Savi take her down before the season's over. 

Just before it all hit the fan, Savi told Dom about the visit with her Dad. That she tries so hard to be indispensable to men because she's completely disposable to her own father. That being with Dom was something new because he doesn't need her, he just loves her. 

I'm saying that I need to learn how to be with someone who just wants me. I really want that someone to be you.

Savi

When Dom hugs her you can see in his expression that he knows how badly he's screwed up. It's painful to watch.

I've always liked Dom because he's always been open about his feelings for Savi. Sleeping with Toni was a huge mistake made out of hurt and anger. 

Where Dom was all about Savi, Savi explained that she couldn't be all about Dom. "I was also an ‘us’ with Harry, so there were consequences and wreckage." When Dom says, “We never had a chance, did we?” my heart broke for both of them. 

Are Dom and Savi completely over? It still feels like there's more ground to cover here. They never seem to discuss the baby they lost and that feels like a huge part of their issues. 

But you tell me TV Fanatics, do you hope that Dom and Savi have a second chance?
