S02E11: After two solid weeks of conveying clear cut messages, The Big C delivered tonight a more jumbled, sort of aimless episode. When we last left The Big C, Shawn was driven out of his house by a crying neighbor baby (hitting too close to home right after his ex’s miscarriage), Paul was involved in a theft ring at work, and Cathy was getting better while Lee wasn’t. All of this picks up, and maintains, in tonight’s episode.

Speaking of Paul, he’s doing coke now. It seems that no matter how principled he claims to be, the SLIGHTEST provocation from his coworker Myk is enough to coerce him into any bad habit. So yeah, Paul’s on coke. He started taking it as a means of harnessing energy so that he may perform better at work… but, if I learned anything from that episode of Saved By the Bell when Jesse Spano gets hooked on caffeine pills, nobody in television abuses drugs just once.
