The L Word Recap 607: Nobody Puts Crazy in a Corner

It’s dance-a-thon time, kids! Alice: “I found more safety pins!” Oh, really? Perhaps you could have used them to hold OurChart together. Yeah, it’s just a tad awkward to have the dead site’s logo featured prominently on all the promo stuff for the dance-a-thon.

Bette arrives, game face revved up. She and Alice perform a complicated psyche-out ritual, during which Alice confesses her plan to sweep all three competitions, including “Last Couple Standing” at the end of the night. Bette: “Step off, bitch! I got this.” (Just kidding; she would have only said that if she were talking to Kelly Wentworth.) At any rate, it’s on like a silicon schlong!

Jenny shows up and confronts Bette about what she thinks she saw the other night, her expression morphing from 'long-suffering martyr' to 'holier than motherfucking thou' in point-five seconds. Jenny asks if Bette has told Tina about the supposed affair yet and infers that if Bette doesn’t, she will. Tina arrives and Bette whisks her away before Jenny can get a word in edgewise.

As it turns out, Tina has just been offered a sweet movie industry job. Bette: “Shut UP! You are such a fucking ROCK STAR!” I can’t decide if I like 16-year-old Bette or not, but I think she’s growing on me. Alas, the job has a catch: it’s in New York. We learn that Bette and Tina can’t stay all night for the whole marathon because they have to pick Marci up at the bus station in the morning.

Sunset, playing emcee, introduces Jamie to the crowd. She brings Alice up for a photo op with would-be jumper Marie. Bette and Tina pledge $1,500 to the cause to get the ball rolling. Okay, WTF? Is Sunset doing an impersonation of Kit on purpose? Kit asks Sunset to be her dance partner.

Off-handedly, Jenny apologizes to Helena for “what happened” with Dylan. Give me a fucking break, Schecter. “What happened” was YOU! Jamie offers to ditch Alice and Tasha and dance with Helena. Tasha and Jamie share an awkward moment.

The dancing begins and Bette notices that Jodi is there, talking to Jenny of all people. Ruh roh. Bette seems about to come clean to Tina about what did and didn’t happen with Kelly, but before she can get anywhere with that, Alice interrupts them – repeatedly. Al has finally started to twig
