Erica and Ethan's relationship hits a rough patch. They have been arguing a lot without Erica really knowing why. In turn, Ethan seems to be running away from her without telling her of that fact. This relationship is becoming reminiscent of Erica's previous relationship with Malcolm Abrams. Once her best friend during their senior year when they were both camp counselors, the two became romantic after which he suddenly broke up with her. The break up caused a war of one-upsmanship which Erica eventually lost. The second time around, Erica vows not to play these games with Malcolm after the break up, regardless of why he did it. However, she can't hide her disdain and her need to get back at him once the games start happening again. But when she learns the reason for the break-up, she realizes that none of this would have happened the first time around if they just talked.

Battle Royale (#2.2)
15 August 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Another beautiful episode. This time Erica learns about the significance of talking about what bothers us instead of just fighting.

I really liked the story of her and her old friend Malcolm and how she found out what was the reason for the end of their friendship. First I felt that it went a bit too simple, but now I think that this happened because talking could be a pretty simple way to resolve conflicts if both sides are willing to do so This again relates to her relationship with Ethan. The scene of their conversation was so well acted, they both did a great job. And while it is absolutely obvious of why Ethan was feeling uncomfortable (who wouldn't!) one still feels for Erica and her fears.

Also interesting what will happen with Kyle now.
