I felt Sean jumped into the idea of moving out with Nicole way too quickly, and I was happy that in the end he wasn’t able to go through with it. Sean definitely would have missed his family, and I doubt he was thinking it all through.
Now what the hell happened to Nicole? Was the mob able to find her and kill her? Did the FBI rescue her and take her away? Or did she just really leave Sean out of consideration for the danger Sean would be in? It looks like we might never know. The suspense during that scene worked out perfectly, though, and it certainly was discussion worthy.
We got a reference back to the Ms. Kimber doll (from season two), as a patient comes to McNamara/Troy complaining that all her husband wants to screw is the doll. This causes Christian to suddenly decide he doesn’t like the idea of Kimber in the porn business anymore, and while I understand why any male wouldn’t want their wife having sex with multiple partners, it certainly is a little hypocritical coming from a man who cheats on his girlfriend a fare share. I liked how in the end, even though Kimber did give into Christian’s demands, she made a few requests of her own in the form of a fidelity prenup. They both got something they wanted.
The main patient storyline this week was a pretty heavy plot: a mother wants her daughter to receive a new face after her original one is destroyed in a carnival accident. The storyline was deeply emotional, and I was sad that the operation failed in the end. I found Quentin’s selfish feelings towards the operation unbelievable (“We could spin this in our favor by telling them she’s alive”), and I couldn’t believe Quentin showed up for the operation high of cocaine. He was incredibly inconsiderate towards what the family and the girl must be going through, and while he has been pretty likeable in past episodes, he dived into intolerable territory today.
