Barbie's Dream House. Irritatingly enough, Operation Jealousy seems to have worked its magic, because now Gabby's answering machine is crammed with messages from the Maybe Mayor. We see a montage of her listening to the messages -- which go from anger to begging all too quickly -- as more and more roses show up in the foyer. Finally, Gabby decides that she's ready to let him grovel in person, and the next time he rings her doorbell, she lets him in. He apologizes for being "thoughtless and inconsiderate," but also scolds her for what she did in retaliation, which he describes as "flat-out vicious." True. And yet? And I can hardly believe this, but next he says, "Maybe you haven't noticed, but I'm in love with you!" Wha....t? Two weeks into dating Gabby and this man is in love with her? After her childish and manipulative maneuvering, which almost lost him his election? Oh Mylanta. You just know that if Gabby's spurning and jealousy mongering causes this man's heart to go pitty-pat, then clearly he is one emotionally broken and faulty-wired politician. Gabby melts, and they kiss, and it is possibly one of the most chemistry-lacking kisses in the history of this show. It must be love, love, love!
Edie and Carlos are bushed after a full day at the zoo with Travers. And I'm weirdly pleased to announce that after that briefest of brief detours into dressing sanely, Edie is now back to dressing like an undersexed mental patient: a plunging white Grecian babydoll dress? To the zoo? Travers is in bed, and Edie and Carlos are looking at photos on the digital cameral, warmly rehashing the fun of the day, right down to the zany pretzel guy, who took a photo of all three of them and commented on what a cute family they make. Edie and Carlos exchange nice, sincere smiles over the image of the three of them together, and then suddenly -- struck by the wholesomeness of it all -- Round 3 of the Battle of The Sex is totally ON. Only this time, no one gets hurt...except for the "so good" kind.
