This story contains spoilers for 'The L Word: Generation Q' Episode 6 'Loose Ends'
Last week, Sarah Finley (Jacqueline Toboni) and Sophie Suarez (Rosanny Zayas) decided to take a bro night to forget all about the qualms of their lives. Sophie was having trouble in her relationship with Dani Nunez (Arienne Mandi) despite an overzealous display of love in the previous episode while Finley, who often finds herself in trouble, has been heartbroken over Rebecca (Olivia Thirlby).
So they go to Shane McCutcheon's (Katherine Moennig) bar Dana's for a drink and some dancing. Still mourning about their respective troubles, the girls decide to just live for the night. And there, sparks went flying! While dancing, they got a little too close for each other and then suddenly realizing the proximity, behaved themselves.
Now Sophie and Finley look like they have been friends for a long time. Plus they also happen to work with each other on Alice Pieszecki's (Leisha Hailey) show 'Alice'. While we now know that they do have chemistry, they also share a bond with each other that is pure friendship, one that we haven't seen Sophie share with Dani. Sophie enjoys spending time with Finley but is this enough to get the two going together?
Finley, on the other hand, has some real issues to deal with. Her relationship with Rebecca, albeit shortlived, has proved that Finley needs to come to terms with her past, resolve whatever she has left behind and only then should she think about having a relationship with another person. Also, Finley's dependence on alcohol is only going to worsen if she doesn't figure out how to deal with it soon.
So should the two get together? We're going to vote, no. It is going to cause a lot of drama and is most definitely not going to end well. And fans are on the same page. "Finley is not the most healthy person to be with. She needs to really work on herself before moving on to other love interests," noted a fan.
Some feel that the writers are bringing this plotline out of nowhere. "[Sophie and Finley are] actually a great match. Great friends, both are able to communicate with each other and they have great chemistry. It’s just that, out of nowhere, the show is trying to turn them into something? Before this episode, no one would say they’d be something, but then suddenly, Sophie starts to dance weirdly close to Finley, and Finley is giving Sophie a bunch of looks. And then there’s the “You’re the best part of my day”.
In the upcoming episode, it looks like Sophie is going to have a family emergency, where Dani was absent. In a promo released by the network, Finley is shown chiding Dani for her nonchalance. This will add a distance between Sophie and Dani. Will it bring Sophie closer to Dani?
'The L Word: Generation Q' airs on Sundays at 10/ 9c on Showtime.
