So, you’ve paid your research assistant for each time you had sex with her in the name of science, as well as other reasons, your second has broken up with his girlfriend, who just happens to be the Provost’s daughter, your wife is pregnant without your help, and your mother has compared you to your sleazy father. How’s your week been?
After last week’s rough end for the child formerly known as Catherine, this week’s episode of Masters of Sex is a fun change of pace for many of the characters. The fallout from last week is still present, but Bill and Libby try to press forward. Side characters enjoy more screen time to move the plot forward, and while we do still have some downer moments, this episode is not without its moments of comedy.
