THE BIG C “Fight or Flight” Review

THE BIG C "Fight or Flight" Season 2 Episode 11 – "When I thought Sean was under that sheet there was a part of me that was relieved, that I could stop worrying." Ditto, Cathy, ditto. Sean is still missing after skipping out on suburbia in episode 10, causing much heartache to his family: Adam is wandering around homeless crowds sticking up Missing Sean posters. This is all until a homeless man is reported dead and, mistaken identity and a phone call later, Cathy utters the above line. Sean was getting better, but without him the show avoided the usual pseudo-manic subplot which has dragged it down pace wise.

This episode sort of follows the tradition of a typical "calm before the storm" structure. Not a lot happened, but plenty was set up which, I’m hoping, will come to play in the next two episodes: Andrea and Myk are now engaged; Cathy knows about Paul’s under the table look-the-other-way business with Myk (though she doesn’t know it’s with Myk); Cathy, Paul and Sean are happy and content, about to head over to Italy for a lovely holiday in the sun.
