Sophie: Week 3
Directed by: Christopher Misiano
Teleplay by: Sarah Treem
Sophie brings Paul a going-away present, believing he only needed three sessions to do his evaluation. She explores what would be involved in therapy for someone her age, and Paul explains that they’d take it at her own pace. Paul probes the circumstances surrounding the breakup of Sophie's parents. Sophie explains that her dad wanted Sophie to live with him and his new wife when he moved to New York, but the new wife said no and he eventually left her. Paul also takes interest in the relationship Sophie has with her coach, and Sophie reveals that she and Si slept together once. But Si told her it would ruin their careers if it got out, and they had to stop. Paul determines that was the night of Sophie’s accident, and she demands to know what he’s going to write in his report, insisting she doesn’t remember what happened. He won’t reply, saying there’s a difference between not being careful because she felt vulnerable and trying to commit suicide.
