Tonight’s episode, “Fight,” was gorgeous. It’s not often that TV allows a long scene to just breathe, let alone have at least four long scenes that unfold like they might in reality. Put two smart people with a common mission, a growing love for each other in a room and this episode’s scenes between Masters and Johnson are possible outcomes.
Sheen is so heartbreaking in this episode. It’s all there in his eyes, the compression of his lips, even the “ahhh” he ejects when his hair is caught in the bracelet. Caplan’s horrified face when she realizes that Masters’ dad was so abusive hit me right in the feels.
Here’s hoping the rest of the season builds on this mountain of awesome!
