Storyline

It's been three months since Bob checked himself out of Payne Whitney after a six day stay following his breakdown, that decision to leave against the advice of the doctors there, and seven weeks after Joan's passing. Bob has rented a large beach house in Southampton and is hosting a gathering largely to support Neil in his time of grief. The other attendees are Paddy, Ann who seems to be holding as a steady girlfriend for Bob, Gwen who is bringing Ron, and Nicole, who is the only minor among a group of often irresponsible adults absorbed in their own issues. While Joan's passing is openly addressed as the reason for the gathering and as much younger Ann and much younger Ron in Bob and Gwen's respective lives is a point of needling between the spouses, there are many elephants hovering over the gathering which may or may not come to light by the time they disperse. One issue with which they will have to address is Nicole, who secretly pushes the boundaries concerning the adult vices ... Written by Huggo

Where Am I Going?
10 December 2019 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

This episode shows the more ruthless side of Gwen.

Bob Fosse had been hospitalised in a mental institute. Gwen got him out because she wants him to do the stage musical Chicago. Gwen has spent years pursuing the rights.

Fosse is holed up in the Long Island resort of Southampton with writers Neil Simon and Paddy Chayefsky. Simon is grieving over the death of his wife.

Fosse should be resting, his doctors have advised a rest of 12 months or more. Fosse is working on the biopic of the controversial comedian Lenny Bruce and Dustin Hoffman is interested in starring in the movie.

When Gwen turns up with her actor boyfriend she persuades Fosse's latest girlfriend, actress Ann Reinking to pressure Fosse to drop Lenny. Resting is not good for a guy like Fosse he needs to be kept occupied. The royalties from Chicago if it is a hit could set their daughter up for life. Gwen tries all kinds of tricks to get Fosse interested in Chicago.

Daughter Nicole Fosse is already trying out cigarettes and booze. Copying the destructive lifestyle of her father.

This really felt intimate with various power plays going on. The visual trickery of flashbacks and flashforwards were minimised. The episode was all the better for it.
