Like most of the season, it is exceptionally heavy-handed, very well-performed, and gorgeously shot.After Bill and Gini confront Bob about publishing the homosexuality study with Art and Nancy, Bob gets a little sloshed and tries to kiss Art in a men’s restroom.He goes on to say that their marriage is ending, which is an impressive two divorces in less than three minutes of screen time. ”–style montage of protecting the clinic’s intellectual property begins.

When Gini leaves Bill’s house first to avoid startling the children, she comes across Libby and her brand-new VW van, covered in flower decals.

Not only does “The Eyes of God” leave her story line completely unresolved — despite the fact that showrunner Michelle Ashford called Helen’s death “the beginning of a long story” — but it lets her go completely unmentioned. Bill’s mood is punctured pretty quickly when Gini reminds him that he has an early intake appointment at the clinic that morning … (This is a bit slapstick-y, as premises go, but Michael Sheen singing Rodgers and Hammerstein makes up for it.) Before he leaves, Bill tells Gini, “I’m happy,” and I’m pretty sure that’s the first time we’ve ever heard Bill say those words in that order.

I loved Gini as a character, but as the show has worn on, she’s become more of an abstraction.

With the future of the series in question, we’re left with this closing message: Bill sees Gini as little more than an addiction to succumb to, rather than a person to choose.

Nancy all but accosts Barton in the clinic’s parking lot, babbling to try to get him on her side, and finally letting the fact that Bill and Gini are working on gay conversion therapy spill. Then Libby and the children happily pile into the VW bus, and she says to John, “The future is happy and bright, my sweet boy.” He says, “We’ll see.” Again, it’s a bit much, but earlier in the episode, Libby makes a speech that includes the sentence, “The days of me organizing my life around a man are over!

” so we knew Libby wasn’t going to go out with much subtext.Art calls Gini to tell her, and to say that it’s his opinion as a doctor that Bob is a homosexual.This basically negates their next book, which is predicated on Bob as a success story of homosexual conversion.They have a fairly typical father-son conversation in which Bill reveals he’s marrying Gini, John tries to grapple with it, and Bill tries to create space for John to be a kid rather than take responsibility for adults’ problems.It’s a nice idea, but it’s something Bill should’ve done a decade ago.When they leave the courthouse, a few reporters have gathered, and Gini says it’s fine to let them take a few photos.
