'B Positive' Episode 5: Drew and Julia get back together in a weed-induced haze during their divorce
Julia and Drew may be in the middle of a divorce, but it looks like they just can't keep their hands off each other for long
It's not just Drew's (Thomas Middleditch) kidney that's a pain in his side, he's got a divorce to be dealing with as well. Now, while many sitcom characters have a horrible ex-wife who has taken them for everything they're worth, the twist in Drew and Julia's (Sarah Rue) relationship is that despite their divorce, the two actually get along rather well. Problems arise, however, when the two of them get along a little TOO well, thanks to a drug-induced haze brought about by Gina (Annaleigh Ashford).
Drew is not looking forward to his divorce proceedings and just wants things to be over as soon as possible. Unfortunately, Julia interprets this as Drew being difficult in an attempt to be seen as the victim, making the whole process even harder. This leaves Drew down in the dumps but Gina decides to cheer him up with one of the joints she's been selling. It's not long before Drew is fantasizing about delicious foods and reminiscing about the memories he and Julia shared which is what inspires him to go to her house in the middle of the night to steal back his ceramic owl.
Naturally, Julia catches him, but seeing Drew's newfound boldness was really working it for Julia and it wasn't long before they found each other back in bed together, spicing up the marriage they're in the middle of dissolving. Their second round is, sadly, interrupted by a minor injury to Drew, but though Drew and Julia have a talk about how they're not ready to get back together, the episode ends showing them that the two just can't stay away from each other for long.
The two might not know where their relationship is at, but they're definitely sleeping together again, which makes things a lot more complicated. Is it too soon to stop their divorce? Are they just caught up in the drama surrounding Drew's upcoming operation? Most importantly, how will they break the news to their daughter, who has already had to deal with the stress of their divorce? As confused as Drew and Julia are about their relationship, things have to be more confusing for their daughter, who's probably wishing she could, just for one week, have a normal set of parents.
The next episode of 'B Positive' airs December 10, on CBS.
