‘Faking It’ season 3, episode 4 review: A Karma shocker changes everything

Faking It -Going into Tuesday night’s new episode of “Faking It,” we anticipated that we would see the continued evolution of Amy and Karma in some form, even if the two came to a realization at the end of this past episode that for the most part, they’re really not great for each other. Karma doesn’t know how to do anything other than how to break her heart.

Instead of that, what we had tonight started as a really unfortunate half-hour, since neither of them really spent any time with the other at all. Instead, Amy and Felix opted to spend some time together as she found herself an all-new project to work on with Lauren: A documentary … or at least what she thought was a documentary. In reality, it was a chance for Lauren to do something entirely about herself, and show off more of her narcissism in a way that only she could.

In the end, she realized that she was being narcissistic only out of fear of exposing who she truly is, which is a much interesting subject than any old reality show, which you could probably see on any network out there.

We’d spend some time talking about the inane rock-show performance by Karma and Shane if we thought it was anything, when the bigger story seemed to be Liam getting asked out by Rachel and then forgetting almost immediately about kissing Karma. Karma was furious in turn with Shane for ruining her performance over a guy he liked … but one phone call changed everything: Her father had a heart attack. She rushed to the hospital, Amy was there for her, and suddenly this episode was not unfortunate anymore. It took 29 minutes to get to the important part, but regardless of feelings or roadblocks, this episode was evidence that friends┬ácan still come together in difficult times.
