Storyline

The plastic surgeons operate a Latino woman with bad breast implants, but find out these are just a customs deception devised to turn would-be immigrants into couriers by their spooky acquaintance, Colombian drug baron Eduardo Escobar, who forces them to 'harvest' more of those cocaine packages, in addition to paying him a fortune they can't raise so fast, even selling precious assets. At the same time nymphomaniac Gina Russo bleeds Christian financially and emotionally in the name for her/their baby. Meanwhile Julia is the only member of her Pilates class that doesn't blackball Sophia, the transsexual. Written by KGF Vissers

Quality episode
19 June 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is a really good episode, as it builds up to the finale and ramps up the tension for the end of the series. The episode brings back Escobar Gallardo, the villain from the pilot, who wants the surgeons to remove breast implants filled with heroin from mules who've carried them over the border on hollow promises of a better life. The scene where Escobar appears inside the McNamara house holding Annie's hand and threatens Julia and Matt with his menacing charm is particularly chilling.

The subplot with Julia and Sofia Lopez is also particularly interesting TV, and highlights a major social issue. Sofia (a transsexual) is not welcome at Julia's pilates class where Julia's annoying soccer-mom friend is threatening her with a petition. The episode highlights the stupidity and ignorance of those being discriminatory and hurtful towards the transgender community. I've been very impressed throughout the series with how the issue has been dealt with sensitively and with real courage from the producers to do something so daring... and pull it off so well
