Here's the episode summary for this week..............
"Sean experiences the ugly side of Hollywood in the form of a television critic. Matt experiences a special bond with one of Christian's patients. The cause of Julia's ailing health is discovered. "
It's about time they got back to Matt. They've ignored him for long enough. There have been so many subplots. Too many subplots, actually. The writers should have left out a few characters this season so they could flesh out some of the more main plots this season. They haven't dealt with Sean's daughter being promiscuous. They haven't dealt with Connor's other hand( or Connor at all). Sean was engaged and broken up all inside of two episodes. Christian was a man-whore, then he wasn't. Annie had an impending eating disorder, then she disappeared. Sean had a growing bond with Aiden Stone, and they never explored it. Christian had no residual guilt over Gina. She died, there was a funeral, and suddenly it was like she never came out to L.A. to begin with. Christian didn't hallucinate about her. Sean didn't hallucinate about Escobar. They need to start bringing finality to all these plots starting with this episode so that they won't seem rushed in the finale. It's not like this season has sucked. It's been non-stop hilarity every episode!
But the sub-plots have started and stopped, and started again and stopped again. Maybe all this is happening because there was supposed to be 22 episodes, and they had to cut it back to a mini-series in a pinch? I don't know. Anyway, I'm looking forward to the progression of Matt's relationship with Rachel (or whoever Christian's patient is).
