I think Miss Manners says Rape Victims twice over get first dibs.
May be one of the single most inappropriate bursts of laughter I've ever tried to suppress in the middle of the night.
Yeah, why is Todd all giddy and practically ready to swat Marcie on the ass and say "now you just get back on in that room now, and you can raise my granddaughter, girlfriend!"?? I was half afraid he was going to make a go at her, like if things didn't work out with Marty, he could hook up with Marcie and raise his grandchild, and--BONUS!--her name ALMOST sounds the same--Marty, Marcie, close enough. Seriously, what the fuck was that? On the plus side for Marcie, were she not about to have her obviously healthy and not creepy as fuck and nightmare inducing baby replaced with a obviously not healthy and very creepy as fuck and nightmare inducing dead baby by Jess' Botpersonality, she could run over to Michael and tell him "hey, Todd's on board now, so once we get the all clear from the doctors on our daughter, we can take her home and have makeup/we have a new daugther sex all over our crappy apartment that we really do need to move out of since we have a child and you are a doctor. Oh, and by the way, I think he wanted to grab my ass or something, maybe he was drunk?"
As much as I hate SexyTimes with Your GangRapist, is it wrong that all I could think at the end was "I hope Todd sues John for breaking his window like that"? Interesting, though, that of the calls John made, one was to Blair. The call to Michael was to advise him not to cover for him when the police came asking about him, the call to Bo was to apologize for his actions, but the call to Blair was just a "sorry I was so distracted, I didn't even ask how you were doing." That's so not a John type of thing to do, especially when he's heavily involved in a case, and you'd expect him to be so focused on Marty right now. It would actually be different and more interesting if John rescued Marty and didn't get involved with her, but was so obsessive about wanting to rescue her because he felt partly responsible for what happened to her, and because he feels for Cole, having lost a parent at a young age, himself (I know, it's shocking to hear John lost a parent, it's not like we ever hear about McDeaddy). Also, once he started suspecting she was the woman in Todd's house, well, anyone would get their sense of moral outrage going over that scenario--a woman being held (you'd assume, since you don't know she has amnesia, and can't imagine she'd willingly stay) in her rapist's house.
Oh, wait, back to Todd being at the hospital, when the "the baby died" bomb gets dropped, I so, so NEED for Blair to be like "oh, no he did NOT!" and go flying out to find Todd. Especially now that she's heard Todd gave Marcie a "pep talk" and sent her back into the room with Starr and Blair. And I wonder what exactly Todd plans on telling Marty now that he's decided not to steal the baby. I guess he can just go with a "she took one look at the baby after she delivered her and decided she couldn't part with her and wanted to raise her herself," kind of story, but you'd think Todd would be all worried about breaking Marty's heart now, since she's all hyped up about raising this baby and having this happy little family with her rapist and the baby he stole for them. And are we supposed to believe he's genuinely in love with her? I seriously think that's creepier than that doll they used as Jess' dead baby. (We'll see which I have more nightmares about -- Tarty SexyTimes, or the dead Jash baby.)
Tina was awesome, though. Loved her wide-eyed innocence at Llanfair. "Why would she do that?" "Oh, you mean like a secret room
!" And then she waltzes over and picks the lock. Then they're downstairs trying to figure out where the room is, and she's hanging out by the pantry shelf trying to figure out how to lead them to it. I love how she hasn't thrown in the towel yet despite the fact that Natalie knows she's known about it and once they're rescued her cover's blown. She's playing it out to the end while still helping. "Oh, hey, look at these scuff marks." And then subtly hitting the speaker button while the chaos ensued so they could hear Natalie and Jared.
Oh, and because it deserves mentioning, hello
, Cain's bare upper body.
