Episode 10 – Running On Empty

Thursday, June 30th, 2011

The couples all seem to be on a mission to pull their lives back together. Janet is reading a book about how to get her life back on track. She insists that Roger is depressed, and wants him to see a therapist.

At the Millers they are preparing a family trip to the cabin to try to start mending some of the failed relationships of the summer. Laurie is out with Teach again, although she’s supposed to be getting ice. Bruce grounds Laurie, which opens a discussion with Susan regarding how best to handle the situation.

Laurie tells them she is not going on the trip, as she’d rather go to a concert with Doug. Susan pleads with her to spend some time with the family.

We also find out that Tom and Trina have closed their marriage while they try to reconnect with one another.

Janet and Roger go to their first therapy session. The therapist is not aware that Janet is going to be there, but indulges the couple anyhow. The conversation is opened to Roger losing his job, and things go much deeper than that. Janet is not happy with the therapy session at all, and tells the therapist later that she refuses to pay for the session. She ends up admitting her frustration with Roger during this confrontation, and talks about the kiss she shared with Tom.

At the Deckers, Trina is trying to turn on Tom by wandering around in a skimpy maids costume. He tells her that the new lifestyle is fine by him.

Wednesday, May 11th, 2011

Bruce assures Susan that he will have no more contact with the woman. Susan asks Bruce if he wants to meet Brad and Sylvia at the sex club. He’s dubious at the suggestion, but agrees. Susans thought was she didn’t want sex to control their marriage, instead she wanted them to be able to control the sex together, just like they did at Tom and Trinas.

Bruce and Roger meet for drinks, where Roger shares that Janet is taking everything surprisingly well. In the meantime, Trina shows up at Janets to formally apologize for the photo. Janet is hurt to find out that they are going to the club with out her, and Trina invites her, with the warning of not to be surprised of what she may see on arrival.

This party tends to be a large swingers party every year, and they invite Susan and Bruce even though they wonder if they are ready for a party of this caliber.

Janet finds a pair of swim trunks hidden in a corner that belong to Tom. These were from the camping trip earlier in the season. Janet doesn’t know they are Toms, and Susan quickly grabs them away from her. Janet also doesn’t know that Susan knows that Roger lost his job, and Janet tells Susan that Rogers promotion isn’t going well. Susan tries to act surprised by this and engages her in conversation despite this.

Susan makes a deal about Roger wearing cologne to dinner. He tries to play it off as cologne that he had worn earlier, and it must not have worn off yet.

Trina and Tom throw their party, and Susan and Bruce show up. The game Puzzlerama is a type of scavenger hunt with a sexual twist. They all watch out for Janet and Roger, who are also playing the game, as poor Janet doesn’t quite understand the concept. She finally figures out the swinging clues and she runs out. Roger is still playing the game, and ends up with Susan as a partner. Susan decides its time to stop playing and leaves. Susan gives her marker to Janet since she’s supposed to pair with her husband.

Saturday, March 26th, 2011

As summer continues to scald, relationships become heated as well. Tom and Trina are having a hard time with the swinging lifestyle, especially now that Tom is working longer shifts and spends more nights away from home. Tom begins to party with the blond co-worker, and Trina begins outside flitations.

Trina comes home after Tom has arrived, and finds a party going on at the pool. The blonde co-worker is involved. Trina tells Tom she feels they are sliding in to old patterns, and Tom admits to sleeping with Bobbie once on a layover. Trina is jealous and angry, and Tom reminds Trina of their safe list, and Bobbie is on that list. Trina points out that he spends more time with Bobbie than with her, and problems continue to escalate.

At the Miller house the AC is broken, Bruce tinkers with that as Susan struggles to put up the new wallpaper. Janet comes over to help. It comes out that since the Millers had moved, Janet has been on a mission to keep up with the other neighbors, and has taken on house projects that the family can’t afford.

Roger loses his job, but fails to tell Janet. She finds out one day when she goes to see him and is told by the Secretary that half the staff was let go. Janet is confused and doesn’t understand why Roger wouldn’t have told her.
