Season 1, Episode 12: A Night in The Dollhouse

A Dark Night of the Soul

Dr. Leslie has trouble falling asleep on his first night in the house. He worries that Grenadine will be a tough case, but he knows he can not and will not let everyone down. 

All of his life Dr. Leslie has been a troubled sleeper. Alone in his bed at night, or in this case on the floor, he sorts through his darkest quandaries and deepest burdens.

Not far away in the computer room, where she's used to sleeping uncomfortably on a rather lumpy love seat, Marie wonders if this is all life has for her. 

Meryl is up late too. Sharing a bed with Grenadine, who it turns out is a blanket hog and a loud snorer, is rather uncomfortable. 

Meryl is grateful for her many blessings, this big free house, the steady income of Gene's rent checks, and even a maid who works for less than room and board... but Meryl too wonders if this is all there is? 

Grenadine's mind unravels further as the night ticks on. Can therapy really help her?

Upstairs, Gene tries to relax with some Purple Haze in spite of being stuck sharing her bed with Opal for the unforeseeable future. She decides to make the best of it by opening up and telling Opal about, well, everything —from her hopes over Vlad, to the big let down of their failed night of intimacy together, to how she really doesn't care much for Marie.

Opal, of course, listens patiently, for hours. 

Meanwhile, Vlad sleeps "alone" in the living room. He wonders too if therapy can help put his poor sister back together. Was coming here the right thing to do? Vlad goes to sleep hoping the good doctor can live up to his promises.
