After a disappointing first season, my interest in the show renewed after this very episode
Fiona Wallice has a new client Robin who is completely delusional and self-absorbed about her looks, and who also has a connection with Wallice's husband Kip. In fact, her ego may have caused her to deliberately seek Fiona's help so that she could brag about her latest achievement. The shocker comes in the third part which neither Robin nor Fiona expected in a comical sequence both exclaim "What?!" about four times after the revelation.
Robin Clarke, played by Julie Claire, is one of those vixens who will do anything to gain attention. Her character in this set of episodes and in the future ones, has been given good treatment overall. She plays that airy, vapid, annoying IT-girl quite well, and her ruin in the third part is especially fun to watch. Lisa for once seems more involved, partly because the story involves her own husband of seventeen years, but she still talks in a very impersonal way all the time that may get monotonous at times. But we do realize from this episode that Fiona Wallice is completely ignorant about what's happening around her, mainly because she worries more about her own needs.
This is probably the story arc that makes Web Therapy more intriguing because we are, for the first time, knowing more about the main protagonist. The episodes after Gossip Girl are equally watchable since it has to do more with Fiona than those patients. I hope they do have Fiona breaking down in one episode, realizing that she is the one needing the most therapy!
