with Oliver (Richard Mylan) - & find out it might really be getting serious
with them as Jane - Steve's ex - calims she has finally gotten over Steve ...
& Steve has never given her an orgasm. But maybe she says that to reassure
Final stop, hospital, where everything is taking longer than expected &
Steve dozes off & dreams about Jeff coming back - as a woman (Samantha
Spiros). Then, Susan, despite complications, successfully gives birth to a
baby, & Steve, despite initial reservations, soon bonds with the kid ...
Some funny jokes can't hide the fact that the basic story of this episode is
totally falling apart as it somehow tries to tie up all the narrative strands
of Coupling's fourth season in one go ... & eventually each
time it tries to huit a serious note towards the end - which doesn't really
work for the characters or the series as a whole. & the story of Jeff as a
woman is downright bad - & does just show how much the actual Jeff (Richard
Coyle) is missing from the proceedings.
