  • Hank takes Ashby's ex on a night out while Ashby takes out Karen. Charlie spends more time with Daisy as the missus is in rehab.

    Californication is just one of those shows that is forever consistent with quality episode after episode and I am happy to say that this is no different. This episode keeps the story moving as all the main characters have some great scenes that keep the plot very interesting for the episodes to come.

    Firstly Hank takes Asby's ex out for a night in an art gallery. Ashby isn't too happy with this seeing it as a date and Hank making a move on his girl. The night seems to be going well until Hank bumps into the woman he impreganated (sorry 've forgotten her name) and her sexually open partner.

    Ashby fires back at Hank by going out with Karen for a private viewing of a band. Karen enjoys the night but refuses all of Ashby's advances. These two story arcs make the audience realize even further the connection of Hank and Ashby as they are very similar people.

    Meanwhile, Charlie finds out that his wife didn't go to her mother's place because she booked into a rehab after taking more coke at the airport. While she is in rehab Daisy sits in at the beauty salon to cancel all the appointments. During this time her and Charlie hang out and watch Dirty Dancing. The sexual tension is there but Charlie is fighting it off for the sake of his marriage.

    The real key point of this ep comes at the end when Karen notices a lump in Hank's groin (guess what she was doing down there?) leaving Hank with a nerous look on his face and a true sense of worry leading into the next episode. This episode was of good quality with its fair share of laughs and drama for good mix. If you are not hooked on this show yet you show sit your bum down when it airs on Showtime next and enjoy the high jinx of Hank Moody, you won't regret it!
