Paul struggles with Cathy’s news while Cathy struggles to find something she’s lost somewhere along the way in the aptly titled "New Beginnings" episode of THE BIG C. I had the chance to watch the episode early, and it’s a strong one with plenty of emotional depth and some silly fun thrown in for good measure.

Unfortunately, we don’t get to see Paul’s immediate reaction, but the episode more than makes up for that with Paul’s clumsily earnest attempts to deal with Cathy’s diagnosis. Admittedly, one of those attempts is a tad heavy-handed, but it’s still remarkably effective at reminding us what’s at stake here.
