Decisions, Decisions is the fifth episode of the first season and the 5th overall episode of Mistresses.


Savi must hide her pregnancy from Harry as she anxiously waits for paternity test results, Joss and Alex's friendship takes an interesting turn, April and Richard are brought together by an unfortunate event, and a private investigator asks Karen about her lover's death.


Harry believes the reason his wife’s breath suddenly smells somewhat metallic is because she may be pregnant. He did some research on this odd fact. He picks up a home pregnancy test so his loving wife can verify his theory. At work, Savi gets angry when she sees a pretty paralegal flirting with Dominic. She sends the young lady on an errand that takes her far from the office. Dominic confronts Savi about what happened. He reveals that there’s something between them. He doesn’t regret what happened between them, not for a moment.

Savi steps into the bathroom to take the pregnancy test. She notices she’s bleeding. She tells Harry it must mean she’s not pregnant. That’s not the case at all. It’s just some natural spotting. The doctor says it’s nothing to worry about, but the stress Savi is currently feeling certainly is. It’s not good for the baby. Savi realizes it’s time to come clean to Harry. She lets him know that she is, indeed, pregnant and that the baby might not be his.

Alex lets Joss know that she officially broke up with Sally. She needs help moving her stuff into her new place. That’s what friends are for, right? Apparently, they are also for saving water. Joss is initially stunned when the door to her shower opens. A naked Alex stands on the other side asking to join her. Joss lets out a slight approving smile as her friend steps inside. The shower continues to stream as the two ladies slowly close in on each other for a passionate kiss. Steam fills the room as the hot water cascades down the naked, embracing bodies inside.

Things are awkward for Joss after the shower adventure, but Alex lets her know that she’s not gay because of what they did. They agree that it was just a fun thing between friends. Harry doesn’t see it that way. Joss gets a lecture from him about the choices she makes. Sally also gives her something to think about as well when she claims that Alex has fallen for her. This has Joss avoiding her gal pal to have sex with a hot, dumb guy who loves watching cartoons. That’s not working for her though. Joss skips out on cartoon boy to hang with Alex at her new place.

April is trying to figure out a way to come up with the money to pay Miranda. A meeting with her financial adviser is interrupted when the school calls to say Lucy never showed. She skipped class with a friend to go see Selena Gomez at a bookstore. Cute dad Richard's daughter also ditched class. April is furious with Lucy, but also a little jealous. She admires her daughter’s adventurous, wild side. Richard lets her know that it’s not too late to change her ways. April agrees. That’s why she hops into one of her store’s display bed with the guy. How impulsive!

Karen is informed that she’s been chosen to be the keynote speaker at a mental health symposium. She barely has time to process this good news when insurance investigator Anthony Newsome shows up at her office. He wants Karen’s notes leading up to Thomas Grey’s death. There’s a chance this may become a criminal matter. Elizabeth Grey dismissed the hospice nurse the night she killed her hubby with the drugs Karen provided. She wants Karen to create fake notes so that the insurance company will deny the life insurance settlement and they can both move on with their lives. Karen reluctantly does as she asks.


Joss's Blog - Friendly Fun[]

Alex is a hottie two scoops! I mean, who WOULDN'T want to tap that? We both had fun getting to know each other better, so what's the biggie? I think Harry likes to overanalyze everything. Sorry I'm not in a boring couple like him and Savi. I'm single, open-minded, and like to play. Is it really such a bad idea to hook up with your friends?
