It is not a good day to be Alice Pieszecki (Leisha Hailey). Everything that could possibly go wrong in her life has gone wrong.

She has an agenda at the beginning of this episode. She is set to meet the network executives to discuss her show and more importantly, ask them to get rid of Drew (Wilson, played by Christopher Wallinger). Alice, however, is not prepared for what happens in the meeting.

Alice is informed that her show is not doing well and that the network might not give 'Alice' a second season. If the show doesn't have a viral video for their next installment, Alice will be put to rest without getting another chance. Her show is "on the bubble".

Drew, like the oblivious Drew that he always is, chimes in and offers to help guide Alice through her own show so that it can make a viral video or two that are much-needed for her show's survival.

Add to that the fact that she walks in on Gigi (Sepideh Moafi) and Nat (Bailey, played by Stephanie Allynne) in bed. They invite her to join in, but Alice is visibly shaken.


She had what could be the worst possible day at work, and just wants to return home to her sweet throuple to cuddle in and talk. But when she sees Gigi and Nat together without waiting for her, she feels insecure.

She is in a throuple with two ex-wives, which was not the best idea, to begin with like we had pointed out. However, Alice is also hurt and feels like she was being used by the two so they can resolve the issues of their dead marriage and then get back together.

We couldn't be happier for her to walk out of that arrangement — good riddance. However, the highlight of the evening for Alice was that she made up with Bette. Small mercies indeed.


'The L Word: Generation Q' airs on Sundays at 10/ 9c on Showtime.
