Sommershaus. Jaime feels like crap, of course, having just learned of her limited lifespan, but Becca is at the sink doing dishes and feeling sorry for herself, because she knows Jaime lied about the trip to Napa. Jaime gives her a "hey," and Becca tortures her by asking all about the fun times she had with Law School Friend in Napa, and when Jaime halfheartedly goes along, Becca demands to know whether Jaime is having an affair with a married man. Jaime is confused, but Becca just says, "Carly dropped off your shoes." Doing dishes again, Becca mutters that Jaime is "just like Dad" (hey, maybe Becca should go live with him!) and she can't trust anything Jaime says. Becca tells Jaime it's time to tell her what's really going on, but Jaime just says, "I can't." Disgusted, Becca turns back to the sink. Jaime reminds Becca of how their mom used to say "I love you the most," but she always said it to both of them. "Now I love you the most," Jaime says. "And I want to tell you everything, but I can't." Becca, unmoved, says trust is a "two-way street," and Jaime says she understands, but Becca has to understand that the new job is "complicated." Becca says, "I need to know that you're never going to leave me." Jaime pauses. "I will never leave you," she says. If these were better actresses, this might be kind of a good scene. But I'm sorry to say, the actress playing Becca does less than nothing for me. They hug, and Becca heads into her room, leaving Jaime to think by the window.
I have to say that whoever picks the music for this show has way better taste than anyone else who does almost anything on it. They fade out on an Eels cover of a Daniel Johnston tune, and putting that together with some Wilco and stuff they've used at other times, I conclude that the music person is really pretty competent. Everybody else...I am not so sure. Certainly not so much the running supervisor.
And with that, the time has come for TWoP to part ways with Bionic Woman, because you don't care, and we don't care, and the occasional flicker of chemistry with the lovely Ear Guy isn't enough to float us through countless kicking scenes and Becca subplots. I've had fun over these...weeks we've spent together, and I will cherish these...four episodes for as long as I live. Or slightly shorter than that. We'll see.
