Mia, Mia, Mia...you didn't even take a test? Oi. She had a great line in the episode though about shrinks lighting up at the mention of 'mother' and whatnot, heehee :D

The revelations about her mom and dad were cool - I never really liked her dad to begin with. For a moment I was dubious, as Mia was, that her memories could be SO far off base, but I thought about it and realized that yes, yes they can be very malleable and prone to revision over time (I read my old diary recently and was surprised at how I've misremembered a few crucial things). I'm kinda glad Mia's not actually pregnant 'cause she's a bit of a nutjob.

At first I was worried that I'd totally missed or forgotten something because I had no clue why April was so mad at Paul and I couldn't think of what he'd done that would've warranted that... fortunately it was just one of those TV writer's tricks to screw with the audience :)

I love Paul's protectiveness of the younger folks and especially his firm, end of discussion statement to April that she doesn't understand his position because she doesn't have children. Very nice moment there.

I liked this session but oddly enough don't have much to say about it. Since I haven't mentioned it elsewehre yet, I'll just say that it was another very evident example of this week's theme of rebirth, climbing up from rock bottom, strength in adversity, finding yourself in a time when you feel very unlike yourself, and so forth. Funny how this season's weekly themes have stuck out much more to me than last season.... maybe it's because I've found Paul much more in control during his sessions, both of himself and of the situations his patients have brought along or created.
