The L Word Recap 608: I Can Haz Ending?

our house.” Bette: “What did you just say?” Oops. Tina: “Oops. I said, ‘Oh my God, that was the most intense orgasm I’ve ever had,’ and I think you deserve more of the same.” Oh, Tibetters. This is Ilene Chaiken throwing you one last bone (so to speak). Enjoy it while it lasts! They kiss passionately, tenderly, sharing sweet nothings. Bette: “You know what I’d like to do when we get to New York? I’d like to marry you.” Cue the lazy, afterglowy, candle-lit cuddling montage, complete with a Sade song. Okay, now it’s a sleeping montage. And it’s still going. And going… In the interrogation room, a sullen, worried Bette proclaims, when asked about Tina, “She’s the love of my life.”

The next morning, Shane teases Bette and Tina about the general JBF-ness of them. Bette wants to hear why Jenny is using Shane’s studio, but Shane dodges – the video is a surprise. Bette: “You know what I think it is, Shane? I think she needed to give you something so that she could have something else to take away from you.” Shane and Tina defend Jenny. Bette: “Yeah, I think her heart is in the right place, I just think she misplaced her meds.”

Upstairs, Helena watches Dylan drive away after another tense phone call. Alice, on the phone with Shane, still hasn’t heard from Tasha. Alice does an impersonation of Tasha pillow-talking to Jamie that sounds uncannily like Redd Foxx from Sanford and Son. Oy. Jenny arrives home, freaked about time. Shane swoops in and offers to go run errands for her so she’ll be able to finish her video before the party starts.

Kit and Sonny arrive back from the zoo with Angie. Sonny has to morph himself into Sunset and get to work; Tina offers him their pristine new master bathroom upstairs to change in. Bette gets testy: “What if he forgets to put the toilet seat up or something?” She says there’s something about men that just makes her “queasy,” but swears up and down that she’s not a “man-hater.” James makes one last ironic appearance, just in from running an errand. Kit, to James: “How do you put up with her?” He smiles tolerantly. Ha ha!

Meanwhile, Jenny’s personal assistant, Shane, arrives at the photography studio with lunch and Final Cut Pro. Jenny wants her to stay and help

Haha! Right...

The last season of the L Word was as delightful as licking a shoe...

Well, we should be specific.

Well, we should be specific. After all, there are few folks whose boots I wouldn't too terribly mind licking. So why don't we say it was as delightful as licking IC's shoes after she'd just walked all over us with them.

I believe there is a old pair of black high tops in my closet but let's just say I'd rather take out the garbage than talk about my feelings. I have an avatar of an actual picture of me in the VP forum but I don't know how to put it up here.

I loved the 50's bit, but I've mentioned it so often elsewhere that I just figure folks take it for granted by now. That and the little white dress are the things dreams are made of. Wink

I just finally watched 607

I just finally watched 607 and 608. Really struggled to get to the end in anticipation of reading JW after.
Why do I bother with the Showtime version?
Oh, yeah, the SEX scenes!

My favorites in no particular order (because I know how much you all care):

1) S1E1 Bette and Tina (just because I'd never scene anything like that before on TV!
@) Jenny and Marina (same as above)
2) Bette and that carpenter-- hot hot build up. So forbidden!!
3) All Helena and Dylan (even though I didn't like Dylan, geez that was worth hating her for.)
4) Shane and Paige's 50's montage--watched that about 30 times. Ilene's very best moment IMHO.
5) Alice Dana "Finally"

OK, I'm realizing there are many more so I'll stop now.
Anyone else agree/disagree?

You're right..... I didn't

You're right..... I didn't get the "damsel" vibes from Dylan, but then that may have had a lot to do with the humping...

and thank you for linking the entire episode - I'm appreciative of youtube, but getting to watch all the way through is fantastic...your recaps were more fun than the episodes...I read you before I watched them...

Dood. They're all sneaky, conniving and manipulative! I feel bad for Dylan. Sad She was damned if she did, damned if she didn't.

(At least we got to see her hump Helena one last time. Sigh.)

Dylan - on the patio beside the pool - smothered her to unconsciousness - put her in the pool (evidently there was no big splash) - Jenny drowned

That Dylan is one sexy woman, but she's a little bit scary....okay, she's a lotta bit scary!

Sorry, for being so late with a comment about 608 but I just got to watch it all the way through last night:

Warrior interrogator talking about the group of friends to Max:

"....they're ass holes."

Max: ".....Yeah, they were pretty hard to penetrate...."

That pretty much sums up that episode for me.

I'm not sure what any of this

I'm not sure what any of this season was about other than promoting the spin-off show. But the finale is going to make one hell of a drinking game once I get the rules sorted!

Did anyone see the Showtime interview with Katherine Moennig (on an itunes vlog) where they ask her why Shane would kill Jenny? What was that about if they weren't actually going to tell us if she did?

Dollhouse season summary so

Dollhouse season summary so far:

Echo is an "active" with no personality to call her own until programmed with one by her creepy overlords. Each week she goes on missions, accompanying increasingly misogynistic dudes on missions of a dubious nature (spying, outdoor adventure, dating/sex). At the end of each mission she is debriefed and "wiped" back to being in a childlike blank slate. Tammoh What's-His-Face's (Helo on BSG) character is a much put-upon government agent trying to track Echo and the Dollhouse down. Meanwhile, her programming is starting to go on the fritz, letting stuff she's not supposed to remember leak in in bits and pieces... oh, and there's a renegade active named Alpha who has some sort of connection to Echo and is going around sabotaging the Dollhouse and its peeps.

You're all caught up!
