  • Mia Week Seven.

    As In Treatment prepares to wrap up is strong second season we saw the conclusion of Mia's storyline. As I pointed out throughout the first six episodes the chemistry beteen these two is strong and I liked how this episode finished some things but left a lot up to the viewer to decide whether Mia really will be able to find happiness or if she will always be moving from man to man and person to blame to person to blame. Definitely one of the better Mia episodes of the past two months and a good way to kick off In Treatment's finale week.moreless

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Mia: Put that in today's session notes, which I hope you keep now. 'Successfully shattered patient M's romanticized image of her narcissistic father.'
      Paul: Actually, what I would write is 'Mia, born to a depressed mother, idealizes her father so as not to feel completely alone. And this week, after finally confronting him, she can see her dad for who he really is.'

    • Mia: (to Paul) Is this how closure works? You remind me of my miserable family life, and then my love life, and then what? Global warming?

    • Paul: Of course you're free to leave therapy. But my guess is, until you untangle those crossed wires, the next man, and the one after that, and the one after that, they're gonna disappoint you too.
      Mia: That's my lifelong pattern? Because I've been too attached to bad dad? Why didn't you tell me this 20 years ago? I mean, what the fuck?!

    • Paul: Every time you stand in that courtroom to defend a client, I think you're actually defending your father to everybody, especially yourself.
      Mia: Shit. How long have you known that one?

    • Mia: Don't give me any of this Pollyanna sh*t.

      Pollyanna is a novel by Eleanor H. Porter about a girl (Pollyanna Whittier) who learned to find the good in every situation no matter what she is faced with.
