Cathy visits a cancer support group, but finds real comfort from an unexpected source in the There's No C in TeamÂ episode of THE BIG C. Cathy's loneliness fills the episode as she rides alone on a tandem bike and has a dinner party for her people: her brother, his aura-reading girlfriend, Adam, and Andrea. On the flip side, Cathy also tries to keep both Paul and Marlene's dog Thomas out of her house.
While not telling her loved ones she have cancer might very well be freeing, it's also leaving Cathy very alone. She tries to counteract that by joining a support group that turns out to be filled with stalkers who hunt Cathy down to care about herÂ and who seem to view cancer as a sort of gift. I've never been to a cancer group, but this seems a little harsh and more than a little creepy and it's a sour note in an otherwise great episode.
Thomas is underfoot every time Cathy turns around, until finally she accidentally hits him with her car. At the vet's office, Marlene asks Cathy what kind of cancer she has. Just like that, Cathy's a little less alone. Nice fake-out, too because I thought Daphne, who recognizes a sick person`s aura (and she so knows), would say something first. Marlene, who watched her husband die, is the one who will best understand. I'm sorry. Cancer is a motherf@#ker.Â Got that right.
