With a title like ‘Romance Languages’ you know things are heating up tonight. Hello, hot stuff! Check out Laura (Margot Robbie)’s new boy toy, Joe (Gaius Charles), a navy boy, all dressed in white and everything. But sticking to the ways of the past, Joe gets knocked out in broad day-light for holding Laura’s hand. Is Laura going to defend him or just let him go and accept things for the way they are?
Well, we are dealing with a new breed of women. As Laura says, “It isn’t right that when you tried to kiss me that I cared what other people would think. It isn’t right that when I went to bed last night I locked my door. It isn’t right that when the super told me to kick you out I did.” I mean, who can say no to Joe sitting on your couch with his shirt off? She’s definitely surprising me with her random bursts of courage and determination. Maybe she isn’t such a blond bimbo after all.
Then there’s a rocky path with Kate (Kelli Garner) and her beau Niko (Goran Visnjic)’s love affair. Niko gets ambushed in her apartment and he’s sent to the secret agency to discuss joining the team in Yugoslavia. “I can’t tell, are you just a silly, naive girl, or are you a master liar?” Both. But more importantly, Kate’s in dangerous love with this guy. The show ends with an incredibly uncomfortable, heart-felt good-bye between Kate and Niko at the airport. Kate’s going around-the-world and Niko back to Yugoslavia. Is this the end of their romantic journey?
Oh yeah, and Collette (Karine Varnasse) gets to fly the plane with Dean (Mike Vogel)’s supervision while the rest of the plane is going crazy with a bunch of partying sailors that haven’t been above water in six months. Too bad for Ginny (Erin Cummings), it looks like Dean’s cleaning up that mess. Let’s hope she doesn’t pop up anymore in any upcoming flights.
Taking off, @missamandachen
