I thought the first episode, having the labour of establishing the framework for the new season, was a bit flat, but this one was a return to form - funny and warm-hearted.

Oh god, this was like my ultimate nightmare--bodily function trauma is absolutely the worst of the worst, and then they somehow found a way to make it worse by having it go viral online. I just...I'm not even sure I can watch this again. There was lots of stuff I would love normally, especially the stuff with Stevie, but oh my god. I haaaate bodily function humor at the best of times, but if this had been me, I'd have not only left Patrick but I'd have left my belongings, moved to another state, changed my name, and spent the rest of my life going red-faced and paralyzed at random moments, remembering, and never stopped having nightmares. I don't know how David would be able to look at Patrick ever again.

When I wasn't curled up in a ball moaning, I thought the stuff with the widow was hilarious--now, mistaken identities and accidental funeral attendance I can get behind! Also, curling jokes.

That made me feel like Patrick and David have a very solid relationship, the patience and humor and trust they had with each other over what was mortifying. And Patrick knowing how to protect David by forcing the earlier deletion of the video and steering him away from seeing it online came across as thoughtful not controlling because he was listening to what David wanted first.

I am still in denial that this is the last season.
