these people are indestructible

Why do I continue to watch? Because there is the more than off chance that something good might pop up. In this episode, it surely does. Willow Banks.

Yeah, sounds like a supermodel. Or a country lodge. And, yeah, the titular character is a model. Look, when this episode began, and the way it progressed, I thought, at least this one is decent. But I knew it wasn't gonna last. And, of course, it doesn't. I'm pretty sure that you would get totally dumb people like this pretty girl who desires ugliness to help her cope with society. It is certainly evidenced by the things real-life people have had done to themselves.

It is quite another to have these things dished up as entertainment. Even if, for once, McNamara/Troy is not to be held responsible.

It doesn't go unnoticed that Kimber is now kinda reformed. Still fallible, but that total wench is no more. Of course, I can't stand her. I'm the founding member of the "I Loathe Kimber" club. (Thriving. We meet on Thursday evenings. We're thousands) So when the episode started with that leggy shaving scene, gee, when I saw who it was, instantly lost interest. And I am The Raven, the maddest little fanboy on this entire site.

Must say, loved that little squirrel swaying on the dance-floor and wearing that short pink dress.

But the thought of anything beautiful is totally dispelled viewing the sad sight, the fate of the romantically-named character.

There is a gigantic inconsistency. Throughout this series, plastic surgery is held up as this great savior, this magnificent force that can transform whatever nut-case of the week to the desired "excellence" and, bearing in mind what had happened to Matt (severe facial injuries, burnt) and his full recovery due to skillful scalpel use (not that it helped!!!)... here, car crash victim Willow is told there is not a plastic surgeon alive that can help her after going through a windscreen. Personal opinion: No, of course not. It's the other episodes that create that ludicrous notion that plastic surgery can do ANYTHING. In your dreams, people!

It's just like that car crash. Depicted as lethal: Tremendous speed, brick wall, no seat belt. Indestructible body! Had this been a comic, I can just see the caption: Fortunately Christian wasn't injured much. Hell, in real life, at that speed, not even a crash test dummy would have survived. Semblance to reality: None.

I would have preferred story lines featuring damaged people turned whole again. Not straightforward corny little stories like a 1950s hospital drama, there could surely have been its fair share of fruits & nuts. But really...

...this is the type of show to really, really inspire you to jump off a bridge.
