Jake and Amy: Week 4
Directed by: Rodrigo Garcia
Teleplay by: William Merritt Johnson
Therapy begins with the news that Jake didn’t come home the night of their last session. And, had Amy not come home as she had threatened to do, Lenny would’ve been left alone all night. Unrepentant, Jake states she was bound to come home because she never keeps her word anyway. This, despite Paul’s efforts to examine what lies behind their anger, launches them into a circular argument of Jake calling Amy a liar and Amy dismissing Jake’s suspicions of her interest in her boss, Ben. As the argument escalates Amy becomes violent. Slapping his face and kicking at him, she tells Jake that if he weren’t a quitter she’d still be interest in him like she is in Ben. When Jake reveals he’s just recorded this last fight with his phone, Amy storms out calling him a psychopath. Jake then tells Paul he records their fights in an attempt to understand what’s happening to their relationship.
