In Treatment Week 5 Laura 9AM S01E21 (HBO)

In Treatment will last a total of 43 episodes. In Treatment is based on the Israeli series Betipul. Gabriel Byrne plays Paul Weston, a psychologist trying to deal with his patients while going through some personal problems. Each show focuses on a different patient. Mondays feature Laura, an anestheologist infatuated with Paul. Tuesdays feature Alex, an ex-fighter pilot traumatized by events that happened a few years ago. Wednesdays feature Sophie, a suicidal teenage gymnast with Olympic aspirations. Thursdays feature Jake and Amy, a couple in couple’s counseling. Fridays feature Gina, Paul’s own therapist and mentor that he stopped seeing 8 years ago for some reason.

I’ve always loved psychology. This show really feeds that need. The sessions are almost verbatim of what would happen in a real session. This show is about characters, not actions. It’s a very smart show and I am also very surprised that Marky Mark is the executive producer. Marky Mark has had success with Entourage so it makes sense that he decided to try out other projects.

This is a great show. I really liked it. I find that it’s best to watch it a few episodes at a time. I recommend this show.

In this session Laura tries to end her therapy, but will she do so for real? We learn more about her dealings with David when she was younger.

Warning: Spoilers ahead.

Paul is sprucing himself up for his therapy with Laura. Paul wants to discuss a timeline to stop therapy. Laura says that today will be her last session. She feels relieved.

She asks him how he feels. Paul says that he feels sad and shocked. Laura says that he is holding back. She says that her week was terrible. She almost lost a patient.

She hates eating eggs and feeling sorry for herself. I can hear Melissa George’s Australian accent easing in from time to time. It’s sexy.

Laura says that she saw David again for a few months later. He was trying a case. She says that he wasn’t the same. He stayed at her house for a while. She slept with him again. She says that she seduced him. It was like Lolita. She retells the seduction. She says that they made love almost every day that he was there. She admits that David was her first lover, not the guy from the debate society. He tells her that she needs to talk about this with her father about this.

She says that her thing with Alex is over. She ended it. Laura admits that she connected her patient to the wrong tube. She did it because she was thinking about Paul. She says that she can’t continue. It’s too hard for her. They hug. She leaves.
