On its own, this all makes sense. Miranda is in a very new place with her sexuality. She’s open in ways she wasn’t before, so it makes sense that when introduced to this new sexual experience, she considers that just because she hasn’t done it before doesn’t mean she shouldn’t.
But the hardest thing for me to wrap my head around is that when Miranda decides to leave the bedroom, she gives Che her blessing to continue working with Lyle. When Che walked out onto the couch, Miranda insisted she meant it when she said she didn’t mind.
truly? A few hours earlier, Miranda had been upset that Lyle was still in Che’s apartment. How did she go so quickly from being uncomfortable with him around to being absolutely adorable sharing Qi with him? Is Miranda really cold about it, or does she think so he have To be this cold if she wanted to keep her qi?
Either way, it’s easy to write this off again as “out of character” behavior on Miranda’s part. But remember, at least to me, Miranda is an asshole for love here for the first time. It will be interesting to see this season how much she is willing to change herself for Chi.
A similar question can be asked about Lisa. Unlike Charlotte and Harry, she and Herbert could not have been more excited, with their children at camp, to immerse themselves in the euphoria of uninterrupted action. However, they do take time out to celebrate their 20th wedding anniversary with a big fancy dinner. At least, it would have been if Herbert had managed to hit “send” on the invitations and Lisa had remembered to order the cake.
Lisa’s mother-in-law, Eunice (Batboy), who we know leans toward old-fashioned ideals, only shames Lisa, not her son, when it’s clear the party is falling apart. She says cakes should be made, not bought, by the women of the house, and happily. Lisa’s father (Billy Dee Williams), in turn, goes to Herbert, making him only motivated by profit.
