Now if we could just get Joanna back to her "WHERE ARE YOU GOINGYOU HAVE NO PANTS" place, we'd have a real humdinger on our hands. I swear to you.
It is confirmed that Julian did, in fact, drive his sister's car to Cassie's house for fucking and drugs, and didn't leave until noon the next day. Is that good enough for Will? No... of course not. Clearly the next logical step is assuming that Julian hired someone to murder his sister while he was at Cassie's house. Joanna finally gets fed up.
Just kidding, she immediately gives him Bambi Eyes and apologizes. For... for what? I don't know, I keep watching it over and over and I can't figure it out. She's an internal actor, it's lovely to watch, but in this one instance I'm just confused. "Sorry I wasn't a virgin when I slept with you the other night"? "Sorry other people exist in this universe besides you"? "Sorry my lifelong friend and first love didn't murder his pregnant sister for your convenience and vindication"?
Will: "You'll probably do something else to hurt my feelings before we're done here. So why don't you just take comfort in that. And leave."
Joanna: "For the folks at home, then, let's review. Edward is back to being our number one suspect even though he clearly did not do it and Ben Preswick is out there somewhere, in danger and in need of our protection. Which doesn't really explain why you keep treating him like a terrorist."
BOWERS HOUSE -- JOANNA WING
Joanna sits herself down and has a little review of her own: Julian hates her, which is tough because she still has a total crush on him. Especially now that she knows he's at worst a standard-issue douchebag party boy (who punches pregnant ladies). Will hates her for reasons that are fucking unfathomable. She calls up her mom at Alzheimer's Camp and the mom's just like, "I can't talk to you right now, I'm having too much fun without you."
So she has herself a cry. Me, I would be embarrassed about the Julian thing mostly, because I hate to be a bad guest. And I would say readying a corkscrew weapon while grilling your date in an unbelievably blatant way about his sister's date qualifies. But also, I mean, there is a lot to hate about Julian, but the whole thing where he's just desperate for approval and for the go-ahead to be a grown man, that gets to me a little bit. Those spoiled boys can wait a lifetime for that one, and they just never get started, and it's so sad to see them at, like, 40 with their family money and nothing of their own to be proud of and just... wondering what happened.
