In Treatment was based off an Israeli series, but that show only lasted two seasons and now In Treatment has to come up with original material for a third. Enter Jesse.
The new character is a gay 16 year old student who has several problems. This one could go in a number of directions, but I think it is pretty clear that it will end with Jesse and his birth mom embracing. I could be wrong though.
The kid just irritates me though and I have a feeling that if they had a better actor than these episodes might be a little better.
