Privileged Rundown: Episode 13, "All About What Lies Beneath"

Privileged Rundown: Episode 13, "All About What Lies Beneath"

Save the Cuban children with synchronized swimming! This week's episode of Privileged has Rose planning a luncheon to benefit Cuban children — all as a ploy for Sage to spend more time with Luis who is planning the menu. Meanwhile, Megan's wondering why Will doesn't seem to want to get it on with her and her mother shares some unsolicited opinions on the subject. And we meet Marco's man, Keith, who is excited to kick start Marco's future — away from the Baker household.

Did you watch? Want to chat about it? Just


  • Wow, new credits! I particularly like the shot of Megan guzzling wine/champagne straight from the bottle.
  • It's official: I'm easily amused. That line from Luis about Megan wanting to "free Willie" made me laugh.
  • The development of Megan and Marco's relationship is one of my favorite parts of the show at this point. Love her oversharing her romantic issues ("This bra? See-through.") and his response: "Compared to his usual dates, you're a Disney classic."
  • Speaking of romantic foibles, I usually find Megan's kind of cute, but sliding off the bed and ending up in the hospital was a little . . . much. I did crack up at their "shtupping" session in the supply closet, though — the Grey's Anatomy docs would be proud.
  • We meet Marco's boyfriend in the same episode that they break up? No fair! It's interesting to see some of Marco's life outside the house — that he aspires to open a cafe, etc. — and it does make me wonder what really keeps him with Laurel and the girls.
  • Ha, "Love smoothies come later."
  • I love Charlie, and I am in denial about the fact that he's leaving the show. But the silver lining is that no Charlie means no Mandy, and it just feels like they've done all they're going to do with that plotline. Also, this episode did drive home the fact that Mandy's nuts. I understand her jealousy, but she just seems so crazy when she talks about it.
  • It's fun to see Rose get a chance to shine, especially with something that took research and a certain amount of craftiness. She clearly is smart, just not school-smart, and sometimes her naivete can actually work in her favor ("Did you know that everyone in this town hates each other?" "Yeah, it's Palm Beach, not the midwest"). In general it's fun to see the twins bail each other out, like when Sage took over for Rose on the red carpet when chatting with Perez Hilton in a previous episode.
  • On a Palm Beach-related note: The Palm Beach Synchronized Swimmers telling the water-based journey of Cuban refugees to the USA? Ohhhhhhh my, no. So wrong and yet, so hilarious.
  • And as always, I loved the fashion in this episode, especially that dress that Megan's mother gets her and the totally adorable little red number Rose wears when Mrs. Bennington comes over. Want it!
  • I was relieved to see Megan yell at her mom and get out some of her deep-seated anger. I'm glad they admitted that this relationship couldn't be just sunshine and fun as soon as Shelby returns to town and decides to be a girlfriend-y kind of mom. That scene felt more realistic than some of their mother-daughter scenes in other episodes and I was glad to see it.
  • Aw, Sage's accidental love confession: "No, idiot, it's because I liked you. Shut up, I don't like you."

After seeing the previews for next week's episode, I can't wait for that Megan-Marco exchange about the Luis-Sage romance. You?

Charlie was great when he was the only friend Megan really had. She had to have a sounding board. However now that she and Marco have become such great confidantes, it kind of takes the need for Charlie's character away. I don't think he's adding anything to the show at all, so I really won't miss him. I KNEW Rose would do her research. She wasn't about to be shown up by Mrs. Bennington. And seriously, the entire Brunch was HILARIOUS! I cringed at the "entertainment", but truly, that was so Rose and Sage. Very Naive, yet showing how hard they tried. Is it amazing to anyone else how un-informed these two girls are? They go to a prestigious private school right? They MUST cover world news at some point, right? That they wouldn't know anything about the problems in Cuba seems a bit unrealistic to me especially being that they are in Florida. But maybe that's just me. I love Megan and Will together. They just fit so well with each other. Megan sliding off the bed WAS a bit much, however I could totally see something like that happening to me, so it wasn't THAT far fetched. LOL And Joanna Garcia is So great in this role. It's such a break from her previous roles, and really shows how funny she can be. I LOVE her!

I love Rose. I think she may be my favorite character on the show. She's just so adorable. I also really love the Megan/Marco dynamic. They're great together. Their scenes together are always really great. I'm not sure if I'll really miss Charlie. I don't really have much of an opinion on him one way or the other. So I'm not really sad that he's leaving.

I'm so happy to see the Luis-Sage romance get a little heat under it because the actor who plays Luis is a friend of my husband's and we're so happy he has work on a popular prime time show! I'd much rather have Ignacio (Nacho) on the show than Charlie!

I didn't know Charlie was leaving :( I thought some of Megan's one liners were hilarious!

it is a little sad that Charlie's leaving, but maybe this time the best friend of the opposite sex thing can end up staying platonic. also, there are rumblings that Robert Buckley of Lipstick Jungle fame is going to come in during the last two episodes and stir up some trouble between Will and Megan so that could be interesting.

what i can't quite get my head around is that they are supposed to be twins and rose seems much younger than sage. i really do like how rose is really turning out to be a good girl - who's just trying to make everyone happy. what was the drama with meg and her mom. that was just too much - but i guess it's one of those stories that they had to have - mind you lilly going to jail really did seem like it could happen. :) i may be the only one who 'doesn't care' but i don't mind that charlie is leaving - he's really not adding anything to the show for me. i feel like there's a lot more that he could do - but right now he's kind of just there and well - i don't think that i'll miss him.

this show is just so cute...such a refreshing change from shows like 90210...I'm not a big fan of Charlie, so I'm torn between being happy he's leaving and wondering if the show will lose something without that other dimension...I'm also already mourning the loss of Megan and Will's relationship - sad, but I KNOW they can't be together forever and he is just so hot!

I love this show. Last nights episode was so so good. I'm happy that Luis and Sage got together. I can't believe Charlie is leaving, that makes me sad now.

I just love this show! I'm bummed Charlie is leaving and I hope if the show survives, he'll come back at some point. But in the meantime, Robert Buckley will be a nice addition. Yum!
