This is the second episode this week of Don’t Trust The B— In Apartment 23, and after watching “The Scarlet Neighbor” and a few things not making any sort of sense to me, I did a bit of research and found out that this episode was actually supposed to air during the first season.
This makes a lot of sense as June is still doe eyed and naive, not to mention working at the coffee shop when in “Paris…” she had her job on Wall Street. Why the network decided to air this episode so amazingly out of order is beyond me, but it made for some very disjointed story telling.
In “The Scarlet Neighbor”, June decides to school Chloe on the ways of having a monogamous relationship instead of just sex with random people. Unlike a previous episode of Don’t Trust The B—– In Apartment 23, June learns a lesson at the end of this one that she should not be judgmental about other people’s sex lives.
However, I had a big problem with Chloe going along with June’s teachings. Not only did June manage to get Chloe to accompany her to a farmer’s market where they talked about kale (for a really long time and oh my god, no one cares), but Chloe let June wax on about being in a long term relationship without her trademark eye roll and quick exit with a quip.
Chloe never would have allowed June to lecture her that much, and would also have been a lot more insightful about growing older. Chloe isn’t stupid – in fact she’s the exact opposite. She’s incredibly smart, which is why when the subject of people getting older because of lack of sex came up, I was expecting Chloe to not be as spooked about aging and instead look at it from a logical point of view, which Chloe DOES possess.
So, while Don’t Trust The B—- In Apartment 23 continues to air two episodes a week, I’m hoping that the show will A.) Air episodes in order and B.) pick up the comedy and take the show back to where it was in season 1.
