We begin episode 60 with our girls imitating each other, which is really cute, even though there’s no dialogue in this scene.
Later on, Mariana has to take some food over to the Atelier, leaving Julia behind to rehearse her lines and daydream some more about inappropriate things.
The second Mariana leaves, Imaginary Armando is standing naked in the living room, which probably means that nothing good can possibly come from this episode.
Here, take my hand. We’ll get through this.
A little later, Julia is rehearsing lines like, “I can’t choose. I want you both. What’s wrong with that?” Wow. It’s like this series is talking about her life. Dude. Heavy.
It’s a good time for Armando to call and tell her about the dream he had, which, coincidentally is just like the dream Julia had. What does it all mean?? We don’t get to find out because Julia hangs up on him.
Mariana, meanwhile, is at the Atelier doing her very best to annoy Ileana. Hernan shows up for the 12 o’clock showing of Ileana the Homophobic Barista vs. Mariana the Gay Lesbian.
Mariana: I’m going to tell you a little something about Miss Ileana. She’s so paranoid with us, the gays, that she’s even scared of me following her on Twitter.
Regardless of Ileana’s homophobic tendencies she does have a secret heart of gold that she shows once in a while, like when she told Hernan about those jerks that harassed Mariana. Hernan tells her that he’s really grateful to her for telling him about that.
Mariana: Whatever your motivations were.
Ileana: Hey, it’s not like I’m the villain of the story. It may be that you and I don’t see eye-to-eye on a lot of things but I also don’t want anyone to hurt you.
Mariana says that merits a hug and Ileana allows it for about half a second before she walks away as quickly as possible.
I think Ileana is my favorite TV homophobe.
Alas, we’re back to the Bad Place. The really, really bad place. And it looks a bit like…
There was the slim hope that this was just another of Julia’s dream-fantasies, but sadly, this is actually happening.
And it only gets worse from there.
Oh, Julia. You fail so much at life right now.
