We see Alex arriving for his session just as another patient is going out. Dr. Weston is somewhat puzzled as to why is the pilot coming so early. Alex, by a way of compensating, throws money on the coffee table, adding an extra amount for the extra time he wants to get. One can see this does not sit well with the therapist, but he is too polite to say anything.
Alex has brought an envelope from Laura. As he begins to talk, he mentions Laura. Alex, defensively, mentions he takes for granted that Paul has already heard from her what went on between them. Of course, Alex's own recount of the encounter with Laura is entirely different. Although he talks about his having had an early ejaculation, he is more interested in the way Laura behaved herself rubbing all over him in order to achieve an orgasm.
More and more, a pattern seems to emerge from this man. He presents a front that is completely false. He has deeply buried issues in his mind than his demeanor indicates. Dr. Weston shows a lot of patience in dealing with this troubled man who does not appear that wants to open to reveal his soul, and in the process be cured of whatever he is carrying inside of him. Of course, the killing of the innocent children is bothering more than anything else, but there are more issues that have not come out as yet. At the end we see a subdued man who now wants to be cured, asking for more time from Weston.
Another impressive episode written by Bryan Goluboff, and directed by Chris Misiano. The series, based on an Israeli program, has been well adapted for an American audience. The strength of the individual installments rely on the intense acting displayed by the doctor and the patient he is seeing. In this case, Gabriel Byrne and Blair Underwood do a well balance dance with their incredible take on the characters they are playing.
