The Being Erica BS Detector: Season 3, Episode 12
So there we were, basking in the afterglow of Ma and Pa Strange belting out Buffy Saint Marie on karaoke (we knew we were in for a good episode when we got goosebumps), when all of a sudden…whaaaaaaa??? We have paused this week’s episode halfway through so that we can weigh in before we find out what in the name of Goblins is going on. Question 1: Are we the only ones having a Bobby Ewing flashback? Question 2: What does all this mean? Have the past two years—the time travel, the multiple failed relationships, the publishing career, that horrible outfit at Pride—been nothing more than two weeks’ worth of coma dreams? And, for that matter, what is a Code White? OK, back to the show.
Following a brief visit from our number one BE crush (don’t be a stranger, Leo), Erica concludes that even if the experiences haven’t been real, the impact they have had on her is. She is a changed woman. And then, poof! She passed the test. So now Erica’s a doctor (albeit a doctor with limited design imagination: Shakespeare and IKEA—no thanks), and we’re guessing this means a whole new past to dissect. More high school hijinks, more terrible dates and more time travel. Hooray!
So who is her new glove-wearing student? Let’s just all pray together that it’s Brent, and maybe our dream will come true. They’re obviously trying to tweak his character a little bit (note the new-found heterosexuality and the leading man hair), and the guy’s obviously got regrets. Here’s hoping, chickens!
Leave your own guesses for who Erica’s new patient is below.
