Under My Thumb (#2.8), 22 August 2012
Author: ComedyFan2010 from Canada

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

So Erica was send to deal with her issues on her own. So did she now succeed or fail? To be honest I have trouble to answer it.

I find the idea of her catching Ethan masturbating and this becoming a problem to be pretty good. Why was she so much into talking about it? I don't get her. But this is a common problem in couples, different view on sexuality etc. I hope we will see more on how Erica and Ethan deal with this.

Why was she also mad at Kai and call him selfish? This outburst was a bit weird for me since I didn't see him doing anything bad, I guess it's because he didn't do everything 100% like she wanted him to, since she believes that everyone lives by her rules.

It will be interesting to see how it goes between Sam and Josh. I hope this was not the final end for them.

Julienne, I don't feel sorry for her. She is like Erica, maybe this why they are such buddies now, this is why I am happy to see someone put her in her place.
