Jake and Amy: Week 7
Directed by: Melanie Mayron
Teleplay by: William Merritt Johnson
Jake claims things have been going well. But as the conversation continues it’s clear Jake resents working so hard to keep the peace and Amy isn’t any happier. As Amy tells the story of her father’s death, she refuses Jake’s empathy saying he doesn’t know her at all, that she’s done really terrible things – that she’s slept with Ben. Despite his worst fears coming true, Jake is surprised by his lack of anger and jealously. In fact, he’s proud to be acting like a gentleman. Paul suggests that Amy provokes Jake’s anger because she doesn’t trust his tenderness. As the session concludes, Jake puts his love for her in the past tense, while Amy questions whether Jake will ever forgive her.
