One of the things that I love about Nip/Tuck is how something that happened in the lives of the patient usually ends up happening in the lives of the doctors in some way, shape, or form (i.e. Kimber's apparent suicide, Sean cutting himself a while back, etc.). I usually can catch on to what is going to happen in an episode early on, but Kimber's (apparent) suicide really surprised me. I knew it was going to happen the minute she began to walk away on the boat, and I was just in shock (in a good way). Something had to happen to Kimber's character. Something huge. She was depressed... borderline devastated (even though Christian did, in fact, do her a favor by leaving her because she deserves better than him) due to her lack of a relationship and her career decline. I was holding my breath the whole time as she mentally debated on whether or not to jump, and when she did jump, I don't know, I just think there was something (as creepy as this may sound) beautiful about the scene. The director is definitely quite talented.
Anyway... besides Kimber's (apparent) suicide, I didn't really think the episode was anything special. The whole "if you cut off your blood from going to your brain, you'll have much better sex" storyline didn't do it for me (I think sometimes the Nip/Tuck writers just try to make the show like soft-core porn. lol. I would much rather prefer intriguing drama than just sex). I do, however, sort of like how the three main characters of the show (Sean, Christian, and Kimber) have reached a point in their lives where there appears to be no light at the end of the tunnel. I have a feeling that they'll all end up killing themselves. When Christian was sort-of hanging himself and something went wrong, I thought he was going to die, which I think would have been the right move (although his death would have been a little early on). I just don't understand how Sean and Christian can ever be hapy after all that's happened to them.
I'm not sure if this is a good thing or a bad one, but the scene where Christian was strangling Kimber while they had sex so that she would enjoy it more was very hard for me to watch. It was obvious she was in pain, yet he couldn't see that. Yeah, that was hard for me to see... Not fun.
Where are Matt, Julia, and... whatever their daughter's name is. lol. Have they just disappeared? I mean, c'mon! Huge characters!
Another thing: I can't wait for Ava to return for the last two episodes. That is going to be simply bliss. I can't want to see how they fit her in to the storyline and how that all goes down....
One more thing. About the next episode... In the preview, they showed Kimber's "ghost" (or a figment of Christian's imagination) telling Christian that going after her mother was a new low for even him. AND IT IS! Christian is really starting to disgust me. He's just so... I guess soulless sometimes, and that makes him very difficult to like. Even though he did gain a lot of my respect when he left Kimber because he realized she deserved more than him. That's been a long time coming.
