Wes, You Ignorant Slut

On the walk home, Johanna tells the girls she thinks Leo hates her. He probably should. Melinda thinks Jo shouldn't worry about Leo's feelings if she really doesn't like him. I agree with that in principle, but I also think she should just make a clean break with him if she knows she's not interested.

Back at the loft, Melinda tells Wes that Jo has made it clear (to everyone except Leo) that she just doesn't like Leo. I just noticed that Melinda has that thing going on in her hair where it's all pulled back, but the front is piled up in a skinny bump. I blame Paris Hilton for that look. Wes tells Melinda that Jo plays games with Leo (true) and that she also plays games with Wes himself (false). Jo overhears this from the other end of the room, and starts yelling at Wes, asking him what the hell he's talking about. Wes accuses her of leading "the kid" (by which he means Leo) on and playing games with him. He can't just tell her that he saw this with his own eyes (because we all saw it) -- he has to tell her that Leo complained to him. Which is just a dick move. Even if Leo didn't ask Wes to keep the conversation confidential, it's tacky to tell the other party about it. Johanna doesn't believe Leo actually said that she was leading him on, and she threatens to call Leo to find out. She walks away (toward the phone, I think), and whatever Wes says to her, she just responds, "Okay, I'll call him right now." He eventually yells after her, "Quit being a bitch." Jo wants Wes to call Leo with her, but he just stands where he is, in the kitchen. In an interview, Johanna complains that Wes pulled Leo aside to tell him that she was playing games with her. It sure would have been nice if the editors had bothered to show us what actually happened there.

In the phone room, Johanna has the phone in her hand as though she's about to make a call. Wes is there trying to speak with her, and she asks him what he wants. He says that he wants to talk to her. She hangs up the phone and harangues him about sticking his nose into her relationship with Leo and acting like an asshole. Wes interviews, "I understand that this argument is not gonna go anywhere, but I've never swallowed anything in my life, I'm not about to swallow this argument." Oh Wes, when I think of all the things you're going to have to swallow in your life, this argument is the least of it.

Wes apparently thinks he's Tom Cruise. I mean, young Risky Business Tom Cruise, not contemporary delusional Tom Cruise. He's wearing his sunglasses, and he walks into Jo's room and lies down on her bed. She's completely curled up in her comforter, and when he asks if they can speak, she tells him, "I don't want to talk to you." She says she doesn't plan on speaking to him for the next couple of weeks. Which will really put a crimp on that bet Wes made with Lacey. He accuses her of playing a game by specifying a time limit for when she will speak with him. Isn't it a cult thing where they repeat the same things over and over again even though all evidence points to those things being false? Maybe Wes really does have something in common with Tom Cruise. Wes accuses Jo of being immature, and then flips her off as he walks out of the room. I think that sentence might implode from an overload of irony.
