Sophie returns with her mother
29 October 2010 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

Sophie is a deeply disturbed girl. To add to the accident trauma she suffered, she shows no respect toward her mother, who came with her to see Dr. Weston. As the episode starts, we see Sophie and her mother, Olivia, outside the office. Sophie wants her mother to go away, but her mother stands firm and comes inside.

Paul wanted to discuss things with Olivia to see if there is something he is missing in order to treat the daughter. Sophie shows a complete lack of appreciation for a mother that was abandoned by her husband for another woman. Sophie expresses her desire to live with her father, something that Olivia finds ridiculous because the man is never around to do much good.

When Sophie is alone with Paul, he calms her somewhat. He also asks her for her cooperation in not trying to do anything foolish like last time when she came in. At one point, Olivia comes back to give Paul the check for payment, and Sophie lashes an incredible amount of venom directed at Olivia, asking the mother to start searching for burial plots.

Paris Barclay directed the episode. He brings a new intensity to the program, something that was kept in check by the previous directors. The chapter was written by Sarah Treem, an usual contributor. The acting is first rate. Gabriel Byrne, Mia Wasikowska and Julia Campbell were seen at their best.
