One of the major themes of Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23 is that it’s okay to let go sometimes. June has begun to spread her wings during season two and let her morality get a hint of gray to it, but she still has a problem not allowing her type-A personality get in the way of having any fun. However, on the next episode of Don’t Trust the B—-, Chloe is more than content to help her along with loosening up.
Well, not that June has any say in the matter. In the sneak peek of the episode (below), Chloe wakes June up in a panic, telling her that they have to evacuate and to get her stuff. June, being June, grabs family photos and tinfoil, but there’s no emergency here – Chloe has arranged for a weekend of partying in the Hamptons. Both June and James have been stressing out over work situations (an impending interview and a recent job loss, respectively), which is no good for Chloe, who wants to hook up with the host of the party they’re going to…oh, and help her friends relax.
In what’s becoming the “norm” for Don’t Trust the B—- (if there can be a “norm” on a show this strange), the move has good intentions behind it that are masked by, well, bad actions. Chloe wants her friends to not be sad anymore and decides that they all need to get out of the city for a while, but she has to kidnap one of them in order to achieve her goal. (And we don’t even know how she gets James to agree to go, either.) Granted, June is the type of person who likely does have to be forced to have fun and something like this reinforces the fact that Chloe does, in fact, care about people, but the path to a relaxing weekend will ultimately be paved with more June freak outs, a lot of liquor, and even more questionable choices.
I can’t wait.
The winter finale of Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23 airs tonight at 9:30 on ABC. The show will be returning to continue its current season on January 8th.
Will Chloe get to hook up with the party host? How will June react to essentially being kidnapped? Can a weekend away help get June and James out of their respective funks?
