Privileged Rundown: Episode 14, "All About Tough Love"

Privileged Rundown: Episode 14, "All About Tough Love"

Holy drama, Privileged fans! Last week's episode was all synchronized swimmers and sex in hospital supply rooms. Now in this episode we've got jail visits and arguments about posting bail and agonizing thoughts on what sisterhood truly means — and that surprising and totally sad ending! Well, we also got some shirtless Will and snarky Marco, so it's not all high drama. There's also the Luis-Sage romance that continues to be adorably entertaining.

Did you catch this episode? To see some of my favorite moments and to share your own,


  • I love jaded Marco in this episode, always supplying the droll comedic relief. "Young love," he scoffs at Luis and Sage. "Makes me sick." Later he sums up why their young romance won't last: "One of them will choose MySpace, the other one will choose Facebook and they'll never speak again."
  • So, Lily's in jail for drug possession, though she says she "didn't do it." Will offers to pay the $25,000 bail but Megan tells him not to, and Megan's dad decides that nobody should post Lily's bail. This is a tough one for Megan who's having trouble just leaving her sister in jail. I could see their dad's point about Lily needing to hit rock bottom, but it did seem a little harsh to leave her there. What do you think about this storyline?
  • Sage and Rose's classmate says that Sage is dating "a domestic!" Wow. My favorite part of the school scenes, however, is the dig they get in at the CW's new 90210 when Sage says the rich/poor love story is so lame "they did it on the first 90210."
  • Oh, gratuitously shirtless Will? Why, thank you. Don't mind if I do.
  • I love dorky little Zach (with a "chah," not a "kah")! When he delivers a poem to Rose (because, as he overheard Rose saying, "it's a nice way to show someone you care about them"), she thinks he wrote it and he doesn't correct her. Problem is, Rose can't understand the poem! I love that she goes to "" to look up the words she doesn't know so she can figure out "Zach's crazy hard poem about our sublimary love!"
  • Charlie's super down on the whole Luis-Sage thing, thinking that it will lead to Luis getting fired. But Luis says you "always gotta follow your heart."
  • For some reason, I always forget that Megan is older than Lily. She feels sympathetic toward Lily, thinking about how alone she was growing up. I sort of love the moments when Megan sees the kind of sisterly relationship in Rose and Sage that she wishes she had with Lily. "If Rose was a serial killer, Sage would stay in jail just to braid her hair."
  • Marco tells Rose that Zach's poem was actually written by John Donne, and then tells her to go find Zach because "no one tries to pull a fast one on my Rose Baker." Also, what is that delicious-looking berries-and-cream parfait thingy Marco is preparing in this scene? Between the shirtless Will and the desserts, this show is like my TV soul mate.
  • I love how much Luis has gotten to Sage. It's like she doesn't know what to do with all the feelings. She buys him the knives he's been saving up for and he's a little sad because he wanted to earn them for himself. At first Sage freaks out (she yells "Blah, blah, blah!" at him!), but after chatting with Megan she tries to see Luis's side of things. "I get your knife dream. We're not so different. End of fight." Awww!
  • Also: Sage actually allowed Megan to give her advice! That's new. And really sweet.
  • Meanwhile, Rose confronts Zach about the poem because lying is something you do in week two of a relationship, "when things get really hard!" Zach tells her she's smarter than she thinks and Rose says that as far as nerds go, he's "even cooler than Michael Cera."
  • Wow. Megan's mother asks Will to help her post the bail for Lily but then she just takes his money and runs. I feel sorry for Megan in this episode but I feel almost as badly for Will. He's trying so hard to do the right things for her, and it's a complicated situation with a family he's just now getting to know.

What did you think of this week's episode of Privileged?

Personally I loved the comment about the debate team uniform "excuse me, I need to go burn mine."

I really loved this episode! There were a few other super pissy remarks that Marco was making too... I'm drawing a total blank! Best character. And I love how Sage has made the dramatic turn from being super uptight about everything, to totally letting loose! And the kitten puzzle was nauseatingly adorable.

I saw the Mom thing coming...then I saw Lily in her jeep and thought "Oh I guess she really did bail her out"...then Lily says the charges were dropped and I knew I should have trusted my instincts. Very disappointed in Will. It was so not his place to try to get involved in the situation and luckily he will have learned his lesson. But man, that has to put a strain on a relationship, right? When your girlfriend's Mom scams you out of $25,000? Ouch.

I was so glad that the show came back this month. It has been my new favorite show. Megan is a great role model for the girls, and I really liked how the young girls who she is tutoring, teach her about family and forgiveness. Unfortunately, Megan's mom is the real thief here and poor Wil is getting caught in the middle of it. I love how caring he is towards Megan, who is his first real girlfriend. The romances for all of the characters are doing are great job showing how difficult yet rewarding a real relationship is. And most importantly, how to grow up and think of someone else other than yourself. I think that Sage, who is usually bratty, has shown some true signs of her feelings for Luis. She is funny as she tumbles into her relationship and she is not afraid to let her sister know that she needs her for "this dating stuff." Please keep the show going. I don't think I could stand losing another show! Miss Pushing Daisies!

kaks, I'm there too. I completely didn't see her taking the money and running. I DID see her asking him for it, but I really thought she'd bail Lily out! OH I hate that woman! She gives red heads a bad name! I completely get Megans ire at Will. He had no right to interfere. I'm sorry, but they're not married, they're just dating and he does NOT know the whole history. He SHOULD have gone to Megan and told her what her Mom asked him to do. That to me would have been the right thing. And yes, I think leaving Lily in jail was exactly the right thing to do. She doesn't call on the family until she needs something. We've seen that since almost day one of the show. There comes a point when you have to let them learn.

"One of them will choose MySpace, the other one will choose Facebook and they'll never speak again." - i laughed so hard on this one! oh what would we do without Marco?!?!

i totally saw the mom stealing the money thing - i dont know why but i kind of felt like that had to be the case since there's been such a roller coaster on the whole family relationship. i'm still trying to figure out how they are planning to get rid of characters though. that's going to be an interesting on to me. it's going to be interesting to see how will responds to finding out that his girlfriend's mother conned him out of that kind of money. i love teen angst and love - it's sweet to see how they are trying to make things work and it makes me remember how i wanted to impress the guy that i was with at their age without being too over the top.

I totally knew Shelby was going to take the money when they had their first convo! The way she was acting and looking at Will! Poor Will, I wish Megan would have let him explain but I get why she was mad. Sage and Luise are cute but Sage is still ugly. Rose makes me laugh all the time but poor Zach! Haha she let him have it. I like them together though. They're adorable!
