My Tuesday night guilty pleasure is Hawthorne. I admit that the first season was a little soft to my taste. But the second and now third season has been pretty hot to trot to say the least. If you’re not familiar with the story, I suggest you rent it on Netflix or try to locate online episodes to get you caught up. Or you could simply go to the following link for a very good overview (http://www.tnt.tv/series/hawthorne/about/?contentId=47231). But for the most part, Christina Hawthorne (played by Jada Pinkett Smith) is a former nurse (she was fired on the 2nd episode of the season) and is married to Dr. Tom Wakefield (played by Michael Vartan). However, Christina sleeps with a cop, Nick Renata (Marc Anthony) who helped her thru some personal struggles. On Tuesday night’s episode, Christina comes clean to Tom about her infidelity. And he asks her if she loved Nick and Christina is unresponsive.
Now if you’re a great friend or follower of mine, you’ve heard me talk about how much swag Nick has in this season’s episode. But I have to be honest and say I was hoping that Christina didn’t give into the temptation. However, I will say she set herself up by being alone with Nick in a very low plunge, backless dress…(yeah, you could read all over what was gonna happen with that:)). But nonetheless, it would appear that Tom is going to ask her for a divorce in next week’s episode. So I have to ask, who are you going to support, Team Tom or Team Christina? Now, I could have made it easy and said Team Tom or Team Nick, but in my mind Nick is sort of irrelevant. He knew Christina was married. But the covenant she was under was to Tom.
I have often said that women would be more forgiving of men’s short-comings if they’d just tell the truth. But it would appear that men think differently when it comes to a woman’s short-comings. What a double standard that is. Because most of the men I know who’ve admittedly cheated, have said they really didn’t want their spouses/significant others to leave them. But wouldn’t be willing to make it work if they cheated.
So that’s why I ask again…Team Tom or Team Christina? Do you think Tom should try to work things out with Christina or just move on. I know what I’d like to see happen…what about you?
Just my Savvy Two Cents….
