Army Wives Season 2 Episode 8 (07/27/08)
Roland pulls Denise aside when he bumped into her on the street to talk to her about Getti. He saw the way she was looking at him at the reopening of Betty’s bar.
Denise explains that Getti makes her feel like the person she could be. Roland admits that it can feel good to have someone new lavish her with attention but she needs to cool it.
Initially, Denise takes his advice and tells Getti she needs to end it with him before it goes any further. He agrees to bow out gracefully but after a suicide patient dies on the table, Denise goes to console him and they end up kissing. Then she awkwardly walks out of the room.
Pamela is still suspicious of her husband’s friend Steve and wife Carla’s wealth. She inquired about how they could afford such a beautiful home, which resulted in Steve telling Chase that he doesn’t want Pamela hanging around Carla anymore.
As it turns out, Pamela was right to be suspicious. Chase gets arrested by the Army police but no one will tell Pamela why. Steve was also arrested.
Pamela goes to talk to Carla, whose house has been torn apart by the police. Carla assumes that because Chase was arrested, he must have been involved in it too. She goes on to explain that Steve’s been war profiteering.
Pamela (Brigid Brannagh) has no doubts about Chase’s innocence but when she goes to visit him in jail, he refuses to say a word about it.
Granted, they’re surrounded by Army guys during this conversation but Pamela is tearfully begging him to give her any bit of information he can but he’s keeping his “Delta Code of Silence.”
She has no idea how long he’s going to be held or what to tell the boys.
Chase (Jeremy Davidson) isn’t in jail for long and when he returns home, he explains to Pamela that he was helping the Army investigate Steve and that they only arrested him to keep Steve from knowing his involvement in the bust.
Pamela’s happy he’s home but not happy that he kept this from her.
Speaking of keeping things from people, Roland put his job and reputation on the line to protect one of his student’s secrets.
A female student at the school, Jessica, is coming to Roland for advice about her relationship issues. She’s a lesbian and got into West Point.
Her girlfriend, however, is concerned that their same-sex relationship will be affected by Jessica being in the Army.
Roland assures her that she needs to just keep her relationship quiet and wait and see if things change with the Army’s policy.
Roland is spotted hugging Jessica and then later two teachers see them together touching hands at Betty’s bar.
The school principal fires Roland over this, not wanting a scandal to ruin Jessica’s future. Roland refuses to explain why he was counseling Jessica and leaves quietly.
When Jessica finds out, she offers to confess to the principal but Roland tells her not to. She does anyway, despite the fact that because it’s an Army school, outing herself could kill her chances of going.
In a great moment, she says she wouldn’t be a good officer if she were the kind of person to let him take a bullet for her.
The principal gives Roland his job back but tells him that he’ll have to report what Jessica told him about being gay.
Roland gives a brief but emotional speech about how Jessica’s sexuality doesn’t change the person that she is.
The principal takes of this in and later came out of the building and told Jessica something, and she responded by smiling and hugging him.
Roxy’s busy at the bar and even managed to hire a waitress, Sandy.
The newcomer quickly begins to flirt with Trevor, who expresses concern about this to Roxy but she blows it off.
Then Sandy blatantly hits on Trevor and after he rejects her, Roxt, who witnessed the scene, threatens to dump a jar of mayonnaise on Sandy.
After getting fired, Sandy tries to sue Rox for wrongful termination but, on Claudia Joy’s legal counsel, Roxy looks into Sandy’s past.
Well, it's a good thing Claudia Joy gave that advice, as she has a history of filing wrongful termination suits and is nothing more than scammer.
Roxy confronts Sandy about this and Sandy backs off.
Claudia Joy goes to the doctor because she thinks she might be pregnant. It turns out to be a false alarm but the doctor suggests that a pregnancy might be a good thing for her and Michael, after losing Amanda.
Claudia Joy says she’s raised her family and she’s not planning on having any more kids. Michael is more open to the idea, though after the talk about it some more, they agree they're happy with things as they are.
After Claudia Joy brought some children's books to Joan, she and Roland agree to ask Michael and Claudia Joy to be godparents to their child.
In a way, Michael and Claudia Joy will get to experience the joys of looking after the wellbeing of a new child, even if it’s not their own.
