    I wasn't that crazy about Rosie being on the show. She didn't seem to bring anything to the show. Hopefully this episode won't be about her. Hopefully she'll just be the patient of the week. I wonder if Christian will tell Sean about Julia. He certainly had no concern about his feelings last week.

    I thought Rosie brought a little comedy with her the first time on the show so I don't mind seeing her again this episode, I can't wait to see what Sean plans to do with the 18 year old girl, seems like a promising episode that I won't miss.

    Rosie was a little overbearing to begin with but the character kind of grew on me (I hear she's due to appear in a few episodes this season).

    OMG WTF is this lady thinking of. Freeze my body and make out with me and it'll bring me to life. Getting a little risque there with showing christian thrusting into this woman. Sure if you slow play it, you'll see something.

    What was the purpose of bringing this little eden witch on the show. was it for T&A. If so it's not working. I hate the way this character is being played out.

    I can't believe that Julia is not even going to listen to Sean.

    And now she's showing her how to purge.

    I like'd a smoothie too.

    Now Eden is going to harass Sean. Why doesn't Sean just get caught with Eden at school. I mean Annie got expelled because she was doing something she shouldn't be so why doesn't he try the same thing with Eden. That is just too funny with Rosie and oliver. he needs a fanny lift.

    what is up with this woman and the ice water. why don't Christian just do he like she wanted him to do. She said that it would bring her out of it.

    I think it's because the nun got him to start thinking and who knows maybe Christian will become a Jesus freak or something but very doubtful.

    I thought this was a really good episode. It had the classic humor that Nip/Tuck hasn't had on a regular basis since season 3 while also giving Eden an interesting twist on being our big bad this season. She seems like she has that kind of manipulation to really tear into Annie, which MAY explain why we see Annie so screwed up in Conor McNamara 2026. Overall, I'd give this an 8.5 out of 10!

    Wow! This show is getting intense...it's wild watching Sean's family fall apart, now his little girl turning into a freak. That's crazy she got caught giving some dude head, and Sean turning into the dirty old man. I liked seeing Christian get a wake up call though, it'll be interesting to see how that plays out.

    Dawn had some major Lipo last season..........So why is she fat as hell?

    This episode was really good. I hate Eden. She is so unnecessary, and unattractive(not that I'm into women). Sean already dated a woman that looks like a faded porn star, and that didn't work out well at all. I thought Sean was too smart to be lusting after someone like Eden. She is so vain, she makes Christian look like Sean. And what kind of father could lust after a girl that he is convinced is ruining his daughter's life? How dare Julia blame Sean for Annie's illness? Julia's the one that dropped a ton of weight overnight. And where the hell is Connor? And can someone remind me why Connor is not having surgery on his other hand?

    Because Julia didn't like the pain he was in (never mind that life is just easier with two hands -- don't really remember why Sean didn't do both at once).

    This episode was pretty good. It suffered a little bit when it showed the eagle attack, which was edited poorly and looked awful.

    I think we're supposed to connect what Dawn felt soaring about with the kind of experience Hypothermia-Grrl was looking to have -- disconnected from her body, floating about.

    I think what Christian was trying to come right out and say was that he thinks Frank is as gay as a day in May and he doesn't want to see Dawn get hurt. Hint: Frank's reaction to the ass-bandit was quite a bit different than Dawn's.

    Sean's storyline is terribly familiar. Eden is like that frog Michigan Max -- she's all "hello my baby" sex bomb when she and Sean are alone together, and "you're a big fat tub of goo" when she and Annie are alone together. Sean needs to wear a wire and convince Olivia that her sweet and innocent little Eden bears watching, and putting a wire on Annie wouldn't be a bad move either.

    Neither would someone dropping a house on Eden.

    I liked Sean's little breakdown except for one thing. He's in a (mostly) healthy adult relationship with Kate (marshmallow fluff indeed) and he's trying to be helpful with her food issues out of concern for her (mostly).

    I think the stitching of Dawn's mouth was a broad metaphor for this season, which is that people aren't talking to each other and that's at least part of the pain everyone's experiencing. Getting Matt and Kimber into rehab might give Annie an opportunity to take care of Jenna which might take her mind off her own troubles. Getting Eden out of the equation would be a good move, and that won't happen until Olivia is told in exact words what's going on with her. And I'm never entirely sure what's going on with Christian but he needs to sit down and talk with Sean about it. All of it. Because he's going to a strange place.

    I really can't believe they didn't at least hire a night nurse after the first ... violation.

    Meh, if the worst thing that happens is someone gloves up and pokes about for a moment, it's unsettling, but nowhere near as bad as being carved and raped, and it's impossible to completely separate the comedy when it's Frank and Dawn.

    Speaking of comedy, I loved how Sean reacted to Eden's text message. "Family stuff." And Christian heading out on "Nanny issues." I'm glad he didn't do her again. She's not allowed to just endanger her life (never mind $8,000, I'd want an indemnity waiver) and text him about it halfway through. What if he was in surgery? She'd just have to die. I'm glad he didn't indulge her a second time.

    Not sure where they're going with the nun, but it was nice that Christian opened up a little about what happened to him growing up. Really, that's just healthier for everyone (healthier than cutting off one's boys).

    Honestly, people, use your words.

    It's episode like this that I really like for Christian. I mean most of the time he can be a supreme jerk but it's sometimes easy to forget why he is that and after such a messed up child hood how could he not be very damaged. You can't totally blame the guy.

    I wouldn't look as Eden as unnecessary, more like a necessary evil. When you think about it for the type of work they do you would expect things like this to play out in a family. Julia's going to a midlife, Annie's aching for a male presence in her life, Matt's paining to be loved, and Sean...well he's just a damn clown.
