    I'd say this title was a bit clich, but after all, this show loves going overboard with their batshit insane writing. I don't mind, as it's all performed very well with actors that bring their a-game episode after episode. I still haven't made up my mind whether this is a show for me or not. Every episode seems to both explain and confuse, providing some sort of backstory to what's going on, all the while creating new intriguing and intense storylines. I'm wondering how long they can keep this up.

    I try not to go into detail about what goes on in the episodes, as there's not much point to this. This episode piles even more on the "poor" Ben, putting him in both tragic and funny positions. A mad ex-girlfriend shows up, the old maid of the house continues chasing his tail, and he gets into trouble with one of his patients. It's hard not to feel bad for him, but he does remind you that he's the same self-centered man he's always been.
