Californication Blues From Laurel Canyon S02E11 (Showtime)

More melted raclette

How long will it take Hank to mess things up with Karen? Not very long. Hank’s usual nice disposition doesn’t win him any favorites when he tries to talk his way out of a warning. He just gets arrested.

I enjoyed the whole first series. Even though some critics were against some of the more controversial scenes, I enjoyed them. It paints an interesting picture of the life of Hank Moody and his messed up life. Hank has been a real asshole in the past, but at the end of it all he’s a good man. If you thought that the second season was going to be any less controversial, think again. This time, it’s mouth rape.

Warning: Spoilers ahead and strong language.

Charlie’s marriage is in shambles when he has a crush on Daisy. He no longer wants to be with Marcy. Hank is moving things along with his Ashby book. Janie comes to meet Lou. Becca has a unhappy surprise from Damian.

Hank wakes up with Mia looking over him. She taunts him of the NY Times’ review of his book that she stole.

Well, I’ll be dipped in dogshit.
Hank to Mia upon hearing the favourable review his book got

Ashby is letting Mia host her book party at his place. Becca and Damian want to stay for the party. Karen relents. Marcy wants to make amends with Dani. Charlie doesn’t want to have anything to do with Dani.

I deeply and profoundly love myself.
Marcy saying her mantra

Anika from Rolling Stone is at the party. She was saying that the book bears Moody’s fingerprints in the book. Anika thinks that the guy that Mia is writing about is Hank. Hank is pissed that Mia is letting Anika think that Hank is the one in the book. Mia says that it was the orgasm that Hank gave Anika tipped her off.

The real life fucking seemed a lot like the fucking in the book, minus the punching.
Mia on Anika

Marcy is worried about Charlie. He’s binge eating and stressed. Karen wants to avoid Ashby. Karen sees Damian and Becca making out. They see that Damian was making out with another girl. She locks herself in the bathroom. Ashby bribes her with Slipknot backstage passes. She lets Ashby in. He makes her feel better.

Marcy finds Daisy at the party. She’s hanging with Ronnie, the producer of Vaginatown. Charlie is upset that Daisy is going to continue doing porn. He freaks out and it lets Marcy know that there is something going on between Daisy and Charlie. He tells Marcy that their marriage is too much work. He wants to get a divorce. Marcy gets in a catfight with Daisy. It starts a fight between a bunch of hot women. Moody gets Ashby’s gun and fires it into the ceiling to stop it. The chandelier falls down and Hank saves him.

Ashby told Annika that he is the sexy older man in Moody’s book. That got Annika off Hank’s back. Ashby also knows that Hank wrote the book, not Mia. Mia chats after sex. Karen is leaving with Marcy. At the end of the night, Janie turns up. Hank goes to get Lou. Lou is in his room with three girls and some dope. Lou says that he can’t talk to her. Hank tells him not to give up. If she loves him, she’ll forgive him.

There is no life without love.
Hank to Ashby

Ashby snorts some coke and starts to have a seizure. He’s bleeding from his nose.
