When Bailey leaves for the night she finds Eli waiting outside for her and looks utterly uninterested in continuing their fight from earlier. Eli, though, needles her by saying he heard their patient is doing well before correcting, "Sorry, your patient." She sighs and tries to stop him but he tells her that she should go ahead and admit he was right so that they can kiss and make up. Admit he was right about what? The experimental procedure about which he was so doubtful was a roaring success, and I know I won't stoop to pretending that Bailey was going to hide all of the risks from Clara and Sean. Fortunately, Bailey declares with disgust that she's not tired enough to tell him that. And here's where I finally make up my mind about Eli, and my conclusion isn't positive. He calls after her and calls her by her full name, then proceeds to give a little speech about how inside the hospital, she's the man, but outside he's the man and that she can call him old-fashioned or Cro-Magnon but it won't stop him taking her to his bed to show her what kind of a man he is. Ugh. If Alex has perfected the Neanderthal act, Eli is teaching the master class. Here's where I would have predicted that Bailey would inform him that he was going to bed alone, but actually she winds up caving and admitting that bedding him sounds pretty good. He kisses her and orders her to be at his place in 15 minutes. I know it's true (and lord knows I've done it myself) that women like jerks and bad boys, but I just love Bailey so much that I wish she was above it and had left him yearning for her in the parking lot while she went home.
After all that, Alex seems as macho as a puppy dog in a bandana when Lucy sees him sitting on the stoop of his trailer in the parking lot, drinking a beer. He offers her one and she takes it and sits down, but once she sits she asks if his plan was really to sit in his trailer and wait for her to walk by because he finds her charming and hot. Girlfriend, I'm sure he finds you hot, but you need to rethink your definition of "charming." Alex stutters when he denies this and so she takes advantage and pounces, announcing that she intimidates him, which is probably why he hasn't made a move. Wasn't inviting her out a couple of times making a move? And didn't she shoot him down unceremoniously? She seems determined to not remember that. I hate when TV does this -- girls like this are always depicted like we're supposed to find them strong and charming and awesome, when in reality they're just bitchy and mean. Regardless, she sits down next to him and tells him that he's forcing her to make the move, and they kiss. She can't even leave it at that, though, and interrupts herself to ask, "Was I right?" Unfortunately, like Bailey before him, he seems into it. Yuck.
