Good-Bye Lee…

I missed The Big C on Showtime again this week on Monday so I had to catch the rerun on Thursday.  Since, it’s now been five days since it aired, I’m not worried about ruining it for anyone.  So, if you Tivo’ed it and haven’t watched it yet, you might not want to read this.

Ever since its first season last year, The Big C has tugged at my heart strings every time, and maybe that’s what keeps me watching.  I need something on TV to stir me on the inside and remind me how precious life really is out here.

Lee died last night.  For those who don’t know, Cathy met Lee this season in her clinical trial and though they’ve had their differences, they were “mole” mates.  That’s what they called themselves.  Lee taught Cathy about good wine, and even took Cathy and Paul out to a gay bar one night.

The clinical trial was working for Cathy, but not for Paul.  This caused some tense situations between the two, and caused Paul to finally leave the trial all together.  Last night, Cathy called him and left a message and he called her back.  Despite needing to get ready for their trip to Rome, Cathy went to see him only to discover he was ready to go.  Cathy stayed with him all night and said her good-byes and wish him safe travels, but got the best gift ever when she got home.  Sean had returned home.

The season finale is next week!  If you haven’t been watching this show, do catch up.  It’s one of the best and it’s full of real emotion.
