Due to all the Real Housewives of Orange County drama this past week, I am two weeks behind on recapping Couples Therapy. For that reason, I’m going to just hit the highlights of the last two shows.
The main drama in the first episode will surround Joe’s return. Janice starts the interrogation on Joe the second he walks into the house. Joe says he doesn’t hit women. Joe is slick as an ice rink. I feel stupid for finding him attractive. Yet, I can’t help myself. They tangle about child rearing of all things.
Things go a bit better with Carmen. Joe says he never said anything to Janice about how they have sex. Joe said the only question he has was regarding Adrian’s sexual orientation. For the record, Carmen says Adrian is straight.
In the second episode, Joe and Kaylin have a deep conversation. Kaylin tells Joe that when he walks out on her it feels just like when her own father walked out on her.
Carmen & Adrian
Carmen is pissed at Adrian over some suspicious texts. Apparently he has a history of editing out incriminating parts of his texts in the past.
After group, Dr. Jenn works with them as a couple. She lays into Carmen about the way she doesn’t listen to Adrian and treats him like crap. Carmen is pushing him away.
Joe addresses the group about Kaylin’s allegations. Kaylin retracts her accusation about Joe beating women.
Adrian is super pissed during group. That was the shortest group in history.
On the second episode, we start with Group. It’s about who holds the power in their relationship. This sets thing up for a power exchange exercise. Basically, with the exception of Joe, all the men allow the women to run all over them. So the guys and Kaylin get to be the head chefs and their partners must take directions in the kitchen. Janice calls the actual chef a bitch. Because, Janice. All the women were difficult. Ang and Joe tolerated the exercise the best. Janice says that Joe “eats like a convict.” She has five mouthsful of food in her mouth on the shot they show of her.
Scott & Jaclyn
This couple is damn near invisible on this show. In the second episode, Dr Jenn meets with them to talk just about Jaclyn. Scott was arrested for public intoxication in the airport. That is quite a feat. Most people are intoxicated in the airport. Even on morning flights all the nervous fliers are sucking down Bloody Marys. Fun Fact: Tomato juice is the best thing to drink on a plane. And if you need a little vodka, then order a Bloody! #TamaraTravelTips Oh while I was talking about drinks, Jaclyn says that she will let Scott back in but there can be no more relapse. Both of these two talk in whispers. It’s kind of creepy.
Big Ang & Neil
Big Ang is becoming a lot nicer toward Neil. Perhaps this is actually helping this couple? On the second episode, it is their sixth anniversary and Neil makes Ang breakfast in bed. Big Ang is thrilled. Later that night he takes Ang out to dinner. Joe and Scott help Neil get all spiffed up. Ang reads him a beautiful love letter with an apology for how she has treated him. Neil was teary-eyed. Neil says Ang never says she loves him and never apologizes. He gives Ang a wallet for their anniversary. Aw, that is the Ang we all love.
