Recap

The third season wasted no time dropping us into a new main plot: Tara never finished her degree and wanted to return for a final semester in order to earn it. But Max was hesitant about the plan and we soon learned why:

Years ago, Tara was forced to drop out of school when she attempted suicide. Max was afraid of a similar development - and maybe he had a right to be.

The episode ended with him asleep and Tara going into some trance, suddenly typing our curses and even grabbing a letter open and cutting her wrist... until all of Tara's alters returnwd to help her finish the paper her psychology professor (Eddie Izzard) required for her entry into his class.

Elsewhere:
- Kate couldn't get a job because her Internet past wouldn't go away.
- Charlene, clearly affected by the revelation that she and Tara were molested by a half-brother named Bryce, couldn't commit to Neil, no matter how nice he was being during her pregnancy. She did allow him to move in, however.
- The episode started with Buck holding a gun to the head of a man named Bryce. But it was a different Bryce and Tara told Max she had no memory of going into the town where Buck got a speeding ticket.
- Marshall and Lionel appeared to be doing very well, although the former did not want to use the label "boyfriend."
