Episode cast overview, first billed only:
Patty (as Emily Anne Davenport)


Dr. Ethan Haas's frustration grows as his date Vivian Scully, the provost's daughter, seduces him 'no ties' but turns out a virgin and eager to tie him up as 'perfect match'. Dr. Austin Langham's initial joy to be asked back for the sex study turns into horror when he learns it's now about non-lovers and experiences erectile dysfunction, a first. William promotes Virginia from secretary to research assistant. Her son Henry misses his father, bitterly scolds her near-permanent absence and wants to move, ignoring George never even wanted offspring. William shows little emotion when wife Libby's hope is crushed by a stillbirth. Written by KGF Vissers

This episode was a tearjerker. It was like the 'Ozymandias' of Breaking Bad. A lot of sadness spilling around.

It is baffling to see how Masters' study is affecting lives all around. How one little curiosity is met with so many hurdles. The study is like a giant machine in the center that is spinning the lives of the everyone who is acquainted(even remotely) to the study. Who's to be blamed? No one. It's no one's fault. But everyone is grieving.

It was interesting to watch Dr. Haas and his relationships with Vivian and Virginia(the two among the many V's he encounters!). Things are getting further complicated for him. In the future, he might find himself trapped in the thick web of confusion!

Interestingly, the writers thought that it was too much grief for the viewers and so, for our sake, ended the episode with an unintentional humor. That was one of the many moments when Masters' was himself and not pretending to be a robot!
