Erica should be happy as she has just been promoted to junior editor (pending sign off by Galvin and a final stamp of approval by Julianne) and is in the new romantic phase of her relationship with Ethan. But Ethan is having problems with Claire, who is threatening to sue for spousal support, despite coming from a family with money. And Erica is facing challenges in her new job, namely the aspect of firing people, most specifically writer Linda Kaplan, a woman who Erica has never even met. Since Erica feels that firing people is outside of her comfort zone, an upset Julianne sends Erica to a management seminar, a seminar in which Erica fails miserably. Erica likens her current work predicament to a past relationship with Ivan Frankel, who she called IF. IF was a man she abandoned without even a goodbye as she did not want to confront him about his Vampire LARPs (Live Action Role Plays). These LARPS were an activity in which he was passionately involved but Erica didn't want to partake... Written by Huggo

While Erica is talking to Dr. Tom (who is dressed as a mime), a partial sign can be viewed of Winner's, a Toronto chain clothing store. Although this episode is set in 2001, the Winner's location shown (41 Front St. E., Toronto) didn't open until Fall 2007. See more »

Erica the Vampire Slayer (#1.12)
14 July 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I likes this episode. Once again Erica doesn't understand tight away what her real mistake was. She thinks it was to not break up with Ivan. While in reality the bigger mistake she did was to judge him for his role playing games and being scared of what people will think of her. I actually have tears in my eyes when she doesn't say the spell and he then has this conversation with her telling her that he is not crazy but this fun activity with his friends matters to him, and that she was scared to be judged while the only one there who would judge her is herself. It really is a great message

And she is great at learning her lesson which as well helps her to get further in her life.
