Caitlin arrives in a flourish. "Oh my God!" she says as she sits. Zoë asks if that's a good or bad "Oh my God." "Oh my God. Crap," answers Caitlin. Heh. She has some print-outs of a blog called Regrets Only. It's like Gawker, "except it's about gawking at women in business." So, two mentions in three episodes. That's a lot of Gawker. Zoë reads from the print-out, "Which top Lily Parish Cosemetics exec has been seen canoodling all over town with her hot chocolate agency rep. These ladies are sharing more than make-up tips." Caitlin doesn't look happy about this. Plus, it looks like she has a zit on her forehead. Mia gets a kick out of the word "canoodling" even though it's used practically daily in every single New York gossip column. I know I'm being picky, but I'm trying to suss out what it is that annoys me about this show. If Alicia's hot chocolate, what does that make her, Caitlin asks. "A marshmallow?" Mia suggests. She's full of one-liners, that one. Caitlin is upset because she has been outed after merely dipping her toe in the "gay pond." Interesting metaphor.
But wait, there's more. Zoë reads, "Which newly anointed magazine publisher left stiletto heel marks all over her fiancé on her way to the top job, trashing her engagement?" Why are these blind items so opaque? Mia is sure it's her they're talking about. Whatever, self-centered. She says that maybe she'll just direct her parents to the blog. Caitlin's seems stunned that Mia hasn't told her parents about her breakup with Jack. Mia says she's not ready to have that conversation with her mother, because she'll just turn it around and make it sound like it was Mia's fault (though that wouldn't necessarily take much turning). It's also evident that Mia is holding onto a little hope that she and Jack might get back together. It makes her seem a little sad.
Caitlin says that the blog is the work of Cilla Gray -- she's already "out there taking credit for it." I guess everyone wants to have the attention of others at some level, but it seems odd that a woman as rich as Cilla would spend much time writing a blog. Juliet is really annoyed that Cilla would drag her friends into what she sees as a vendetta against her. Mia asks her what she has in mind and Juliet replies, "She needs to be whacked." Zoë and Mia giggle with Juliet, but Caitlin says, "I've got a cousin in New Jersey who could take care of this. I mean, if you're serious." It seems like Bonnie Somerville has inspired the writers to make her character a little rough-and-tumble. I like the depth her character adds to the show. It's unfortunately easy to add texture to this show at times, because everything has been sketched in such a two-dimensional way. In any event, Caitlin makes more and more sense as a character all the time and I like that. Juliet says that she won't need the services of Caitlin's cousin: "Don't worry, I'll handle it."
