MJ talks to Landon about how Ashley will handle seeing him hook up with other girls. MJ told his dad that he knows now that his relationship with Ashley is best for him. MJ adds that he's not doing anything wrong, but he feels guilty. Landon says it's only a few more months, and that MJ should just enjoy his freedom while he can. MJ thinks he can go out and flirt and even kiss people, but that it should end there. He thinks that bringing women home is not fun. Landon suggests that MJ be more selective, and they both crack up.
Jason and Sarah meet at Starbucks. Jason asks why Sarah called him. Sarah says that she's always had gay friends and never tried to hit on any of them. Jason says he's always felt like he didn't fit in. Sarah says that she was instantly attracted to Jason, and that she'd like to be his friend, but that she'd also like to be more. Jason says that he doesn't want to seem inhibited. Sarah interviews that she knew it was a bad idea, but that she'd like to say she conquered a gay man. The whole idea that gay men would like women if only they were able to have the best pussy is so insulting. First, it implies that people are gay completely by choice, and second, it implies that Sarah has the best pussy. I don't think either is true.
Sarah and Willie hang out at a club. Willie advises Sarah to back off Jason unless she has serious feelings. Sarah says that Jason knows she's leaving in a few months, so he's not looking for anything serious. Willie thinks Jason doesn't seem like the type to have casual relationships. Willie interviews that Jason's interest in a woman is "a huge deal, identity-wise," and the fact that Sarah seems sort of frivolous about the whole thing has damage potential. Sarah says that she likes Jason, and Willie agrees that Jason likes her too. Sarah decides that she's going to sleep with him, and Willie just laughs, because what can you do?
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 was a made-for-television movie called Moment of Truth: A Mother's Deception starring Joan Van Ark. She played a wife and mother who tried to get a promotion at the bank where she worked, but got turned down because she didn't ask for it quickly enough and they didn't know she was interested. So for some reason, this sends her into a downward spiral. Plus, her husband is kind of a dick and her daughter is leaving for college. So she starts having back pain and her doctor refers her to a pain specialist, which is a nice way of saying that he thinks she's loony. So the pain specialist is clearly a cult leader, and here's how you know. First, he works at a place called The Institute. How would she not know that was a cult? And also, he has wind chimes. Come on. Cult. And also he's constantly giving her back rubs and whispering to her and shit. So he convinces Joan Van Ark to go to The Institute, and he implants the suggestion that her husband used to beat her, even though he didn't, so she leaves home for good. So then her daughter and her husband contact a cult expert and they kidnap Joan and take her to a remote cabin in the woods (as you do) and try to deprogram her. And the cult leader finds the cabin and there's a big confrontation and of course, her family wins out and they live happily ever after. Can you imagine their dinner conversation in the following year? "Hey, Mom. Remember when you were in that creepy cult and accused Dad of beating you? Good times. That was hilarious." So that was awesome.
