Susan and Bruce are chatting in their room. She apologizes for not telling him about the afternoon she and Roger spent together. Bruce -- who has had, it must be noted, one hell of an emotional day -- asks plaintively, "So why didn't you?" Susan replies, "Do you tell me everything you do, every single day?" Bruce concedes he does not. Susan says, "I assume you tell me the important stuff." Bruce asks, "This wasn't important?" It's sort of poignant -- twisted, yet poignant -- how the guy who's all torn up about his emotional infidelity is terrified of his wife getting emotionally involved with someone else. Susan explains that Roger's situation was important to Roger, so she elected to honor that. Then she reassures him, "The last thing I want is to keep secrets from you." "Me too," Bruce says, and Susan snuggles down, sort of oblivious to how Bruce really said that he wants to make sure Susan keeps no secrets from him. He's still got a pretty big one of his own.
Poor Trina is left to rue the ending of Puzzlerama. Awww! I could honestly care less whether or not the Thompsons stay together -- for one thing, I think they might both be happier with other people -- but I am gutted over the rupture between Janet and Trina. Tom comes out and they do a little post-mortem on the party. Trina says nearly tearfully, "I never meant for anyone to get hurt, least of all Janet." Tom reassures her that everyone knows that, and reminds her that "Janet and Roger and Susan and Bruce are not exactly like us." Trina thoughtfully says, "Nor should they be." Tom says, "Open and honest doesn't always mean easy," and Trina rasps, "Don't we know it?" Tom sweeps her away to bed with, "On the bright side, there's nothing left out there that can hurt anyone." No? Someone should ask Melinda what she thinks of that.
