When Lee called Cathy to be by his side on 'The Big C' (Mon., 10:30PM ET on Showtime), you could hear in his voice why he wanted her to come over. He knew it was his time, and no one wants to go alone.
The bond that Lee and Cathy shared transcended the clinical trial and became something so much more powerful. Lee called Cathy his "soulmate," and perhaps it is that level of connection that allowed some of his energy and enthusiasm for adventure and excitement to make its way into Cathy's heart.
It was a beautifully written scene, with a truly harrowing performance by Hugh Dancy. Acting opposite Laura Linney, the pair made every beat of his last moments feel authentic and absolutely heartbreaking. Dancy doesn't do a lot of TV, but he's certainly welcome to come back any time.
