Performer of the Week: We’re going to give this to Lindsay Hartley (Cara). This was her first full week as Jake’s ex, Cara, and she got a whopper of a scene to play: Jake realized that Cara’s reason for dissolving their marriage all those years ago (she claimed an affair with Griffin) was actually a lie, since Griffin was revealed to be her brother. When Jake called her on the REAL reason why she ditched him, Cara was forced to say she wanted out of the marriage. Normally, we’d want to smack Cara for hurting a good guy like Jake. But the pain on Cara’s face – not to mention the tears in her eyes – belied her explanation. Sadness, regret, guilt, embarrassment. Immediately we knew Cara was not one-note, and that’s thanks to Lindsay’s portrayal.
Runner up is Erica’s spider webby dress that had all those flesh colored patterns cut out of it.
