For MANY people (including me) making out with someone IS cheating. I know I wouldn't be thrilled to receive a marriage proposal from someone right after he had cheated on me.I don't get why Karen's boyfriend wasn't able to watch rehearsals or whatever they were doing. I also don't get why she got so huffy with him after he confessed that he could have been with RJ but decided he only wanted to be with her. She said something about him cheating but it seems to me he quit with RJ just short of cheating. Plus, he told her about it so he wasn't hiding it. He should have told her about his trouble with his job sooner and he shouldn't have dismissed her job as "that stupid play" but I think his feelings for her were sincere. Maybe there's some other reason she's just not into him anymore.
The thing is, until next week's episode, all we know is that Dev and Ivy had a drink at the bar. We don't know that they slept together.
I have to say, I pretty much hated this episode. I don't enjoy watching people treat each other so cruelly. The only bright spot was Julia and Frank beginning to reconcile. I hope Michael coming back next week doesn't mess with that. He seemed charming at first. Now he just seems like a selfish user.
I wasn't surprised at all that Derek slept with Rebecca. His morals have always seemed........ fluid to me. If sleeping with Rebecca elicits a better performance from her, he's going to do it.
