The Dream Lover (#4.11)
29 September 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Ryan and Henri-Michele compete for Taylor. After Ryan reads her a poem Henri-Michele disappears because he sees that she loves him. But Taylor says she wants to stay single for now to be able to live with herself. Seth goes to find his inner animal with Che and it turns out to be an otter who Che is supposed to fall in love with according to his dreams. Kaitlin realizes that Will belongs to the dorks and lets him go. Julie makes Kirsten think that one of her prostitutes had chlamydia so they can be friends again.

Ryan and Taylor's story was a bit boring here, but everything else was great. Oh Julie, one of the best characters on the show! Chlamydia isn't such a big deal anyways if caught on time, especially when it doesn't exist of course.

I didn't liken Will before, he is too much of a dork indeed, he even made all the fuss about weed. Even Seth's parents didn't see it as a big deal. But yeah, good story that he is from a different group of people than her.

And looking forward to some more inner animals romance, hope it will happen!
