In Treatment Week 6 Laura Monday 9AM S01E26 (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 comes back to therapy to talk about her dad, who had a health problem right after she talked to him about David. Her father suspected that something had happened to her with David, at least that is what he told her. Kate snoops around to see Laura. Now she knows what Laura looks like.

Warning: Spoilers ahead.

Paul is trying to rekindle his relationship with his wife.

Paul’s middle child Rosie arrives in his office. She finds that he has been sleeping there. She hears him in the shower. She’s crying. She looks about 16 years old. Actually she is sixteen, she’s in Sophie’s year.

Laura gets a call as she walks into therapy. She’s giving someone some medical directions. Laura has brought a few gifts for Paul. She called him in the morning. Her dad is in the ICU. Did this happen when she told him about what she had done with David?

Laura told him about David. She called him after she left therapy. Her dad suspected it. Paul says that her dad wasn’t surprised. Paul asks her how she feels about it.

Paul says that he missed her. Paul is giving her mixed signals. Paul says that it’s time for her to know about how he feels about her. Laura is hearing what she wants. What will she do? She gets up and walks away. She asks him what they will do know. She thinks that he is testing her.

Laura is holding his hand. Paul takes his hand back. He tells her a story about when he fell in love with one of his teachers. She was 33. He was a kid. She dared him to kiss her. He ran away. He used to think about this all of the time. Paul told her this story to make her realize how she should act.

Laura talks about how it was with David. This is the root of her problems. She did get abused. Paul tries to explain it to her. She says that she never wanted him to f*ck her. She tries to kiss him. Paul doesn’t let her. Paul says that he really cares about her.

She gets a call from her brother Ollie. He says that her father’s temperature has gone down. Paul says that she will be OK, he gives her a kiss on the forehead and hugs her.

Kate sees Laura as she leaves. She knows that she is the one that Paul has feelings for.
