Exploring the art of storytelling.

Living in Sin


I have been waiting five seasons to meet Tamara’s mother.  I came to the point when I didn’t believe it would ever happen.  But in “Living in Sin,” she finally made an appearance!  Unfortunately, she was mad at Tamara and didn’t talk for very long, but at least we got to see her!

I like how director Chris Alberghini directed the dinner scene at Luke’s apartment.  Jenna and Luke were cooking.  They were squished up against each other and kept calling each other “babe.”  It was sickeningly sweet.  Then, Luke stepped away from Jenna and in the space between them, we saw Tamara sitting at the kitchen table.  It was like a curtain had opened.  I was not expecting to see Tamara, but immediately, I understood how she must have felt: like a super third wheel.  They way Alberghini directed this scene allowed for me to be entertained and also allowed me to sympathize with Tamara.

What happened to Tamara?  Did she actually meet up with the person she was talking to on the phone?  Is she ok?  I am so worried.  I don’t want to wait a week for the next episode.
