Cameron and Kirsten hit their first relationship bump on Stitchers Season 3 Episode 3, "Perfect."
The good news for the lovebirds is Linus figured out what's interfering with Kirsten's stitches. And he created a temporary fix for it.
Unfortunately, the interference is coming from Cameron.
Specifically, Kirsten's dealing with too much oxytocin in her brain. The hormone levels spike when a person's in the early stages of a new relationship. That's why Kirsten's getting so into the steamy stitches.
If she wants to keep stitching, which she does because it's the only way to help her mother, she and Cameron have to put the brakes on their physical connection.
It's certainly a unique problem to have. And a bit of a silly one. Kirsten and Cameron are still going to fall deeper in love even if they're not touching one another on a regular basis.
But it's hard to be a fan of Stitchers and not embrace the silly things that come with the plot. If we can accept Kirsten connecting with dead people's brains on a regular basis, we can accept that only the steamy stuff interferes with the process.
Of course, the root of the problem went deeper than lack of touching. Cameron didn't think Kirsten felt the loss as deeply as he did. She rightfully took offense to that, and a bigger fight happened.
The entire fight went hand in hand with the warning Camille gave Cameron on Stitchers Season 3 Episode 2 when she referred to Kirsten as an emotional virgin. It wasn't fair of Cameron to put that pressure on Kirsten. She's still new to emotions.
Hers don't always bubble as close to the surface as his do. It doesn't mean she's not hurting, too.
I could use some support now, okay? Not attitude.Cameron
In Cameron's defense, the doctor had a lot on his plate. Maggie was out of town, so it was his first opportunity to test drive his new promotion. And one of his biggest obstacles turned out to be Camille.
I still believe Camille should have received the promotion in the first place. It's hard to be angry with her for misbehaving. But between showing up to work with a hangover and her constant need to disrespect Cameron, my patience wore thin fast.
The same goes for Camille being mad at Linus. Yes, repeating his words is what got her in trouble with Maggie. But Camille made the choice. She needs to own that. We don't always get what we want in life.
Cameron's terrible luck continued when he ended up with a crazy person holding a needle to his neck not once, but twice! And Fisher also received a taste of a near-death experience when he was almost taken out by coconut water laced with botox.
The cases of the week are never as interesting to me as the character drama, but the Valley of the Love Dolls plot line brought its share of humor between the danger.
Although, it wasn't shocking when Ms. Perfect turned out to be a doll. I assumed as much as soon as the victim hid her in the wall. My guess is he knew what was happening and didn't want anyone learning his secret.
Should we even talk about how creepy it was for the doll maker to create one modeled after his wife? At least we got to see Cameron taking some of his frustration out on the murderer after his second near-death experience.
Two real women wanted him dead, but the fake one is the one that killed him? You really can't make this stuff up.Kirsten
Fisher's love speech and the accompanying montage of happy couples was lovely. I'm still not sure how I feel about his ex-wife's reappearance at the end of Stitchers Season 2, but I suppose we can give her the benefit of the doubt.
And while I will continue to be suspicious of both until proven otherwise, Ivy and Amanda both seemed pretty happy with their new loves. Camille's speech about feeling judged was so relatable. We've all been in a place where we want to hold a piece of ourselves back.
Let's hope Amanda's worthy of her trust.
The same goes for Ivy. Not only for Linus, who deserves a break after everything he's been through ,but for Kirsten, too.
I love that she turned to her sister when she needed someone. Both women appear to be cautious as they wade into bonding territory. That's a good thing. Assuming Ivy's on the up and up, she's been betrayed as well.
Taking things slow is the best course for everyone right now. And, sadly, the only course for Kirsten and Cameron.
All right, Stitchers Fanatics, tell us what you thought of "Perfect!"
Did you enjoy the case? Are you surprised by the problem with Kirsten's stitch? Is Cameron as okay with it as he's pretending to be? Which love interest, if any, do you think is shady?
