Rose’s conversation with Nathan about the incident is also very well done. I see the joy on her face and in her voice and I’m happy for her. (It’s easy to forget she’s not a real person experiencing these things!) And now comes the most interesting portion of this episode. Claire’s upset. Rose thinks it would be a good idea for her to spend the night. Nathan says no. It’s an interesting predicament, but I think Nathan is right about this one. Rose might think it wouldn’t be any different than having any girl stay over, but it certainly is. Is it the same as having a boyfriend stay over? Yes…and no. But I don’t think having a romantic partner spend the night is something any 16 year old should have to deal with.
I do want to add that Caitlynne Medrek’s performance in this episode is outstanding! I’m a little afraid to say that because I’m worried that it could be interpreted as saying the other actors aren’t doing a good job. But I am not at all saying that anyone else is below par! Kate and Jonathan and the group playing Claire’s family did great jobs. But Claire is so cute and funny and Caitlynne is doing so well taking us on the wild ride through Claire’s wild emotional states!
I shall return with more commentary, as these episodes just keep getting better and better! Best season ever!!
