‘Mistresses’ season 4, episode 1 review: Who’s engaged, and who’s got trouble?

Mistresses -The fourth season of “Mistresses” wasted almost no time at all when it comes to giving us some drama, but at the same time, not all of it was the horrible kind. This is a show meant to be somewhat light and breezy, so we cannot be too shocked that over the course of the premiere, someone got engaged and someone else managed to get an agent for their book despite an unexpected problem at the reading.

The second person we’re talking about here is Karen, who managed to secure off of the strength of her writing alone the services of Barbara Rutledge (Tia Mowry), someone incredibly good at what she does. This could take Karen’s entire career to the next level, but it’s still hard to have us thinking anything other than “this probably won’t end well.” After all, when does it ever? The same probably goes with whatever is going on between her and her new “manny” Robert (Jerry O’Connell), who has already create an incident when he tried to kiss her.

As for Joss, she’s still feeling the trauma that stems from what happened to her at the end of this past season, even though the attacker is behind bars and she’s now getting most of what she wants from life. Her business is booming, and she’s also now engaged! A very busy Harry still found more than enough time to pop the question.

The April storyline as a whole was probably the night’s weakest, mostly due to the fact that 1) we’re continuing to see Marc challenge her when it comes to his ambition and 2) she’s being misled in some ways by her own kid. Hasn’t she dealt with enough? She’s struggling the most of the three and we want to see her turn it around!

As a whole, we do feel like if you love “Mistresses,” you probably really enjoyed this. The writers could’ve done more to take Calista out of the story, but all in all this was a nice start to a summer full of scandal, suspense, and other good stuff. Grade: B.
