The roommates walk home from dinner. In a confessional, Leah says that she needs to figure out what's happening and sort through her own feelings before she talks about it or acts on it. The roommates go inside. Simon hears Leah crying outside and tells Christina and Mallory. Christina goes out to see what's going on, and tells the others to stay inside. Simon points to where Leah is crying behind some bushes. I know it's sad and all, but it really cracked me up that Leah was hiding in the bushes. Mallory interviews that she knows Leah is upset, but that she doesn't know why. Leah interviews that it's really important to her to be able to have children. Oh, for Christ's sake. Isn't that putting the cart before the horse? She doesn't even know for sure that anything is wrong with her, and even if there is, she doesn't know how it will affect her reproductive health. She is such a drama queen. I have no patience for people who get all weepy about things that might happen. Do what you can to ensure that bad things don't happen, and deal with them when and if they do happen. Christina leads Leah over to a cherry tree that is in full blossom. Christina leaps up and grabs a branch and shakes it so that the petals fall all over Leah like snowflakes. It's very pretty. Christina is a good friend.
The roommates prepare for bed. Simon interviews that he knows something is going on with Leah, but that he doesn't know what. Simon asks Christina if she's allowed to tell them what's going on. Christina says she promised not to say anything. Mallory interviews that it's difficult when you want to help someone, but you can't. Simon says that he wants to understand Leah. Simon interviews that he doesn't understand Leah half the time. God, join the club. Christina says that she can only tell Simon that it's a big deal.
And now it's time for the Most Awesome Thing I Saw on TV Last Week. The most awesome thing I saw on TV last week wasn't all that awesome, but it was sort of awesome, and I didn't see anything else, so it'll have to do. I watched the premiere of Average Joe and I did enjoy all the dorky-looking guys trying to pretend the only reason they didn't have wives was because women are shallow, when in fact, a lot of them were just kind of annoying. There were some decent guys in there, too. But the awesome part was when the bachelorette was about to meet her suitors, and she was clearly expecting a bunch of model types. So they had a stretch limo pull up and this hunk got out and the woman was all excited to meet him and he walked up and was like, "Hi! Nice to meet you. But I'm not one of the eligible bachelors." And then he just got back in the limo and drove away. Awesome! And the woman was like, "Wait! Can't you stay?" And then a bus drove up and the nerds piled out and her facial expressions were hilarious. I have to wonder what the producers said to her after that to get her to stay. And then another kind of awesome part was that there is one guy who is more traditionally good-looking, so he's an asshole, and he just thinks he's the greatest thing and I hope the woman eliminates him this week. That will be awesome. Also? His name is Zach. Perfect. And then there's the college professor who is so pretentious and obnoxious and thinks he's so smart. I know I'm supposed to root for the nerds, but that guy's just a douche. He even dressed like a douche. He wore a long coat, and he's about five feet tall and he just couldn't pull it off. So while it was not the most awesome thing I've ever seen, it was pretty awesome.
