    Hi guys, yesterday i watched episode 5x02 of nip tuck when julia goes to see sean and christian and one of them asked her where are the kids she said she left them with her mother. But wait a minute, i remember on season 3 when the airplane of julia´s mother crashed she was in big pain and julia killed her with a pillow. Please remind me if that was true and erica is dead, because in that chapter after in the bar julia talks about erica but i dont think that the writers would forget that she is dead ???

    Is she really dead or i can´t remember what really happened on season 3?

    Thanks !!

    Jesus did you guys really not see that entire episode? So many people are asking about that.

    No, her mother's not dead. Julia THOUGHT she was but it wasn't her. She showed up at the end of the episode, briefly explaining she couldn't leave with things between her and Julia unsettled.

    Quite a lot of people were determined that that was a grief-driven hallucination.

    I chose not to believe that, because a world with Erica in it is a lot more interesting than a world without her.

    And I enjoyed the idea that Julia euthanized a complete stranger, based on Christian's far-too-intimate identification, but also got some catharsis and clarity for some of her mommy issues.

    TJ, you are the Sean to my Christian. No really tho...look at our Avatars lol.

    Yeah, she's definitely alive. Julia said she was going to go live with her in New York during season 4.

    It took me a minute to remember that one too because I was asking myself the same thing up until this weekend.
