Edie returns from her visit to the nursing home to discover that Carlos has already received his eviction notice. Edie sweetly offers to let Carlos crash at her place, just, you know, until he can find a place of his own. I have an idea! How about Carlos moves into his condo? You know, the one that's supposedly been being remodeled this whole time? Carlos catches a whiff of the sickly smell of lies in the air, and extrapolates that evil Edie actually had something to do with the eviction. They fight, he tells her he isn't in love with her, only in "like." She tells him she very well may be carrying his "love child," which she quickly and pointedly downgrades to "like child." Sigh. I know that slutty behavior is almost always linked to some kind of self-esteem problems, but still -- this new version of Edie just does not jibe with the Edie of yesteryear, a woman who racked up the notches on her lipstick case, sure, and was actively looking for love, yeah, but who also had an admirably sturdy independence streak. Remember how she left her long-time crush Mike the very second things got a little complicated? Back then, all it took was one bloody wrench and Edie was off to greener pastures. But now, she's this weak-o woman who puts her head in the sand (where "sand" equals Carlos's lap) rather than face the fact that there's a disturbing lack of cartoon hearts in her current man's eyes. Seasons 1 and 2 Edie would have never, ever put up with a man who needed to be talked in to loving her. But Late Season 3 Edie is totally willing to settle for whatever bad company she can scrape together. Sad, so sad. Nice dress, though.
