“The L Word” Recaps: Episode 5.11 “Lunar Cycle”

Thank you, oh Gods of gay TV — Jodi is on top of Bette; I think you could call this heavy petting. The phone rings, and even though Jodi picks it up to hang it up, it seems to be enough to shake Bette out of whatever madness has brought her to this point. She grabs Jodi and tells her to stop.

Whew. That was entirely too close for me.

Bette: I can’t do this. It’s not right. I don’t want to do this with you.

Jodi, frustrated and humiliated, picks up her shoes and jacket and heads for the door. Bette chases her, and I get temporarily distracted by her gorgeousness and almost don’t hear what Jodi says.

Bette is worried because Jodi flippantly said she’s going to kill herself, but Bette should know her better than that.

Jodi: I’m not going to kill myself over you. Don’t flatter yourself.

Bette: Jodi. I really care for you so deeply, but I am not going to walk away and just turn my back on you and let you hate me. I’m going to fight for this relationship.

Yes, Jodi, you should be confused. And not just because Bette looks really good in black.

Bette starts to talk about school and meetings, but Jodi refuses to be “managed” like that. She suggests that she tag along with Bette.

Jodi: I’ll come with you to school and we’ll talk when you finish your meeting.

Yes, because it’s Take Your Lesbian Twin to Work Day!
