Erica is feeling conflicted about her decision to start her own publishing company with her fellow fired River Rocker Julianne, their first planned book being Seth Newman's manuscript about escaping from a cult within which his family still lives. Although the business was Erica's idea, Julianne is equally as excited about the prospect. Ethan, however, wants Erica to be more cautious in whatever her next career pursuit. Dr. Tom gives Erica a test to follow her gut feeling. As Erica is unable to complete this test, Dr. Tom sends Erica back to graduate school, when Erica mistakenly sent a nasty email to her brilliant but difficult thesis adviser, Dr. Audrey Hogan, the department head. Erica vows not to send the email the second time around. Regardless of the email, Erica feels that Dr. Hogan hates her. But Erica comes to understand what she is supposed to learn on this visit back.

The Importance of Being Erica (#2.12)
23 August 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

A great season finale! Here Erica goes through understanding that what is right for someone else isn't right for her and that she needs to find herself and who she is. It was sad to see her and Ethan break up, but this is how it goes. Sometimes people get together without realizing that the lives they want are completely different. They may love each other but they will never be happy together, great message.

And Kai finally left. I wonder if he will still show up on the show.

And now I wonder what is behind the door that Erica chose. I just hope that next season will be more about Erica working on her life than life of others, this fits her much better.
