"You are a very young sociopath in training"

The penultimate half-hour of Californication's first season is the one
with all the twists that set things in motion for a sure-to-be glorious
finale: a juicy appetizer before the real deal.
Big shock number one: Becca announces she will live with Hank. This is
devastating news for Karen, who nevertheless keeps organizing her
imminent wedding (which is why Becca is doing this in the first place).
Hank, on the other hand, is thrilled to hear about it, but there's a
less uplifting surprise waiting around the corner, namely big shock
number two: Dani and Charlie are representing Mia, who is passing off
Hank's latest book (of which she made a copy) as her own. Thankfully,
it takes Charlie only a few pages to realize what's going on, but
neither he nor Hank can do anything, because if they try to stop Mia
she will tell everyone about her one-night stand with Hank.
And yet, in spite of all the dark implications, this is a very light
episode, all thanks to Duchovny and Handler going through every scene
with shameless, corrosive wit. If Robert Patrick, who played Agent
Doggett on The X-Files, showed up as well, the three would be able to
carry an entire season just by sharing the screen. A class act indeed.
