Scott Galvin's reign at River Rock brings an entirely different corporate mentality, where everything is driven by his testosterone laden sense. The men have to be dudes, and the projects they will be working on reflect Scott's own interests. Even the name of the company has been re-branded to The Rock. As hard as he tries for the sake of keeping his job, Brent just doesn't fit into this new corporate image. Erica's advice of pitching an idea that brings his own sensibilities into the testosterone world of The Rock gets Brent fired. After the fact, Erica realizes that her advice was just a tired old cliché. That's when she learns that Brent is her next patient. To understand what is happening to Brent, Dr. Tom sends Erica back to high school and her dealings with a Québecois exchange student named J.C. Paget, who stayed with the Stranges for her two week exchange and who just didn't fit in. To get J.C. off her back, Erica at the time told J.C. just to be herself, which made J.C.'s ...

Judith Winter: [observing new girl J.C. and her amorous boyfriend] Erica... she's fine, okay? I mean... my God, you're like completely obsessed with her.
Erica Strange: Well, she goes from friendship braces to high as a kite in one day. I just... I don't think we're doing her any favors.
Judith Winter: Okay, don't be a dork. Uh... yesterday she was crying in her room, and today she's... uh... she's happy.

Erica and that smarmy guy, they'd never match!

A much better episode that almost wanted to lift off again there at the early stages, like in the First Season. But the moment that awful, irritating, patently self-centered Adam Ferguson guy settles onto the screen, hoo boy, I wanna walk out. Grating. And that's the male romantic lead? Him and Erica? They are SO wrong together, SO SO SO wrong. There must be thousands of people out there who can spot a mile off that in real-life they'd never match.

Outsider boy Brent toughing it out for his career with those "dudes" and Quebec Goth girl J.C. who gets a makeover, those two ideas went down well with me. I was a whole lot more positive, but then my screen got a truckload of that Irish lounge lizard again, and it's just too much. I'm fresh off the thing and still kinda bummed.

Story needed more J.C. and considerably less Adam. Scriptwriters, bury him ASAP.
