I'm Still Watching The L Word! Episode 5 😈
"Abraxas, the demon of lies."
Episode 5 is called “Lies, Lies, Lies” and it opens with a wacky lil’ short. Basically, a frantic NYC lesbian is pounding on the door to her friend’s apartment. She’s scared and upset because her girlfriend didn’t come home last night. The friend picks up a creepy statue from her coffee table and answers the door with it. She’s like, “This is Abraxas, a minor demon. Your girlfriend is one crazy bitch. She probably slept on a friend’s sofa.“ Then she closes the door, goes back to bed, and starts bumping the MISSING GIRLFRIEND! Did the demon give her sinister dyke energy? The power to gaslight? I love when The L Word has supernatural vibes. Remember when Alice dates the vampire?
Bette is having a tough time at work. She can’t find anything to fill the “gaping hole“ left by Provocations. The governing board at the CAC wants to fire her. There’s a museum by my house that always has travelling exhibits like “history’s funkiest shoes“ and “100 Christmas trees,“ surely Bette can find something for her gaping hole?
