About Episode

  1. Irene's been acting strange lately, apparently because she has been sick. Irene is suffering from headaches, and it's affecting her work on the radio commercials. Problems surface as miscommunication occurs between Irene and Janet. Lindsay suspects that there's something about Irene's past that they just don't know.


    Irene takes a turn for the worse. During an interview, she can't suppress the tears: "This is not something I want to be going through right now, you know what I mean? And I don't want to be talking about it I don't want to be sick right now." Stephen is concerned and spends the night with Irene on the couch in case she needs anything.


    Production of the R.E.I. commercials progresses, but not without conceptual and technical problems. Stephen forgets to send the commercial script to Kelsey, the R.E.I. representative, and gets reprimanded.


    At the house, Irene furiously cleans the house. Janet thinks it's because she needs to feel stable. On one particular night, Irene goes off the deep end. Talking to Janet in the bedroom, her thoughts move fast and her words move faster. She suggests that Janet return a pair of pants to save money as if the idea was a revelation of biblical proportions. Nathan becomes the next target for her rambling mind. She attempts to deconstruct the dream he had months earlier--the one in which she had testicles. The roomies are confused and annoyed by her behavior.


    Irene finally reveals the truth--she suffers from Lyme disease. She goes to the doctor, with Rebecca at her side. During the drive home, Irene takes comfort in the knowledge that she truly is sick and can deal with the disease head on.
