JJJ is convinced that we’re going to cry during each and every episode of Chasing Life…because we did tonight.
Here’s what happened in the show:
After getting a reality check about her illness while checking out Dominic’s medicine cabinet (we all do it), April headed back home and JJJ was crying out a ‘darn it’ at our TV screens. Heading to Beth the next morning, the perfect best friend encouraged April to just go for everything. “You have cancer, you can do anything you want,” are her words of wisdom.
Arriving at work, she had a “run-in” with Leo, who so recognized her, but said nothing and picked up a story about carrot juice. The carrot juice dude, Gerald, stole out hearts and we wanted him on the show every week. Talking with him, April gets an insight to the carrot juice phenom and how it helps people with cancer not only heal but pull together and also tells him – the second person – that she also has cancer.
Back at work, April gets a little gossip around the water cooler about Dominic’s past dating habits. So what does she do? She social media stalks him (we all do this too), and because of this, kind of succeeds at avoiding him in the extremely small copy room. Beth advises April to “play it right back” with Dominic after the things she found online. Finding him at a concert for work, April breaks up his “other prospects” and pulls him back to his place where things get heated fast and then cool off just like that. Thank you Graham for breaking the tension in the room!
April runs to Beth at the coffee shop and the two have an argument about taking risks, which only gives Beth the moxie to quit. That also means no foam art…at least for now. Hopefully we see that wavy heart. Back at the Farmers Market, April is shocked to learn that Gerald passed away — JJJ was screaming and crying at this moment. Crying, April comes back to Dominic’s and talks with him about Gerald and apologizes for the bit of drama she caused the night before. But because of Gerald, she calls out co-worker Andy on his a**y comebacks and seeks out a support group…where she finds Leo! Twist!
Brenna & Sara
After catching her Sara and Ben in a compromising position, Brenna tries to get it out of her mind. But Sara, as a therapist, wants to talk about it. Sara tells her daughters, and mother Emma (played by the great and hip Rebecca Schull) that she wants them to meet Ben at dinner the next night. But things don’t go as smoothly as planned, when not only does Sara find out that Ben is her new patient’s ex, but Brenna brings the awkward to the dinner table.
She invited co-worker Kieran, who is clearly into her, but uses him against her family. Later on, at work, Brenna apologizes to Kiernan and gives him a copy of her dad’s last book and Kieran confesses his feelings (#Brieran).
Sara, trying to break up with her new patient/Ben’s ex, finds out that Ben reunited with her after the dinner. Knife in our hearts!
