And the drama continues on Army Wives. Tonightís episode left us hanging on a number of story arcs. Putting aside Emmalinís new boyfriend, whom I totally donít trust, things arenít looking good for Joan and her baby and just when it seemed Getti was going to be out of the picture for good, a motorcycle accident put him back in the hospital Ė this time as a patient.
Claudia Joy talks to Michael about hearing that kids were buying drugs from soldiers on post. Michael says heíll take care of it and puts Joan and Evan on the task of finding the soldiers. They bust a bunch of guys for having drugs on their possession in their bunks. One of them is Jeremy, Deniseís son. Jeremy swears to his mom that he has nothing to do with drugs and doesnít know whatís going on. He asks her not to tell his dad about it.
Denise, who called in sick for a few days after the kiss with Getti, confesses to Claudia Joy about what happened and ever the perfect friend, Claudia Joy is supportive of Denise and essentially tells her things didnít go too far and they donít have to. Claudia Joy later urges Denise to tell Frank about whatís going on with Jeremy. Denise waits a day and in that time, Getti tells her that he sees that sheís unhappy since the kiss and he doesnít want to be the source of her unhappiness, so heís leaving. Denise eventually does tell Frank about Jeremy but all ends up fine and the charges are dropped.
As it turns out, Jeremyís bunkmate was the one dealing the drugs and he confessed after some persuasion from Joan. She leaned on the kid, explaining that Jeremyís well connected to high-ranking people on post and confessing might get him a more lenient sentence.
Towards the end of the episode, Denise gets a text from Getti asking her to meet him at Julepís for one last coffee. It looks like sheís about to say yes but then Frank calls and says heís coming home. He realizes theyíre not connecting like they used to and he wants to make things right with her. Denise texts Getti back that she canít come. As sheís leaving the hospital Gettiís brought in on a gurney. He was in a motorcycle accident and it looks like heís in critical condition.
Roland convinces Roxie to get her GED. Sheís got so much going on in her life with the kids and Bettyís but she decides to do it. Meanwhile, Trevor, who took a boring job working as Joanís driver while his arm heals, decides to spend his off-time putting together a spa-night for Roxie so that she can have some relaxing, happy, downtime. He works hard getting the night perfect but Roxie goes out for drinks with some of her classmates and finds Trevor asleep on the couch next to the romantically decorated dinner table. Sheís grateful that he tried and heís happy that she got to enjoy a post-class hangout since she missed out on that during her teen years.
Emmalin has her eye on an off-post high school boy named Quinn. She wants to hang out with him but Michael and Claudia Joy want to meet him first. They have Quinn over for dinner and the kid is perfect. Too perfect, if you ask me. He has all of these great answers about what he wants to do with his life after he graduates high school and heís totally polite. Emmalin, who is clearly going through her teen low-self-esteem phase, tells Roland that she feels like this guy is out of her league. Roland tells Emmalin the same thing Claudia Joy later tells her about her being a great girl and deserving of a great guy.
Emmalin sees Quinn on post when he was supposed to be off running errands for his mom. Heís with some girl, holding her hand and looking very flirty with her. Quinn is upset by this and tells her mom, who suggests that maybe Quinn is just not ready to be serious with her. Claudia Joy is optimistic as always and this rubs off on Emmalin a bit. She talks to Quinn about it and he tells her that the girl is just an old friend. He smoothes things over by asking Emmalin to be his girlfriend. She says yes and they kiss. I totally donít trust this guy. Heís a smooth talker and the way he was with that ďfriendĒ seemed a bit more friendly than it should have been.
Pamela was approached by a reporter who wanted to run a story on her so that people on post could know a bit more about it. This story arc didnít really go anywhere though. We didnít even get to hear what the article was about though Iím assuming it focused on Pamelaís former cop-career and her life as a mom.
The episode ended with the Getti drama but we saw that in the previews last week so I wasnít too shocked to see that. What I was surprised by was Joanís pregnancy complications. When she and Roland were in Lamaze class, Joan felt a pain and then we saw that she was bleeding very badly. Iím hoping that things will be ok, though I wouldnít be surprised if these complications put her on bed-rest, forcing her to go on maternity leave earlier than expected.
