1. CONVERSATION 22: UNDISCOVERED COUNTRY
On her way to her “Hamlet” stage audition (in a 25-minute one-take episode that hits five different locations), Gus brings up the relationship issues he’s having with Michelle as they settle into married life. Just when the couple thinks they’re back on track, one incident causes a near accident and sends them on a different route.
2. CONVERSATION 23: STOOL PIGEON
Michelle Macabee meets a “fan” while she’s on a walk at the beach, but her “fan” turns out to be someone she knows who spills the beans about Gus. Michelle walks away and is chased and harassed by this young woman until Michael Miller, a passerby, breaks up the argument and befriends Michelle.
3. CONVERSATION 24: WED-LOCK
Michelle challenges Gus in couple’s therapy, with their new couple’s therapist, Dr. Kerr. Gus claims he knows nothing about the “rumors” Michelle has heard, and by the end of their session, he diverts the attention off of him and makes Michelle an offer she cannot resist.
6. CONVERSATION 27: THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE
In a fourth interview with Mrs. Shannon Pierce, a foster-to-adopt social worker, Gus, with Michelle by his side, is drilled with personal questions that make him so uncomfortable he threatens to file a complaint to Mrs. Pierce’s supervisor, but when Mrs. Pierce reveals what she knows about Gus, Michelle freezes in a state of disbelief.
