S1 Ep 39: Jake and Amy: Week 8
Directed by Rodrigo Garcia
Teleplay by Wm. Merritt Johnson
Jake arrives for the session alone and tells Paul he’s done with Amy, but still he worries that she’ll “pull him back in.” He also explains the troubled relationship he’s had with his father, an academic who seems incapable of understanding his son. Paul notices some similarities in how Jake views both Amy and his father, but Jake doesn’t want to get into that – he’s more concerned about losing his son in a custody battle. Paul suggests that his patient could learn a lot from more therapy, but Jake has had enough. He’s learned his lessons from his father, he says, and he’s not going to screw up his own son.
