With Lou putting it on Meredith as she did, Meredith sees that as punk rock – because sending a vulnerable 22-year-old in Hollywood as a sex toy isn’t just seen as exploitative. But either way, Meredith decides to go with Joyce after Lou’s stunt, and Joyce learns this the same day Travis tries to take credit for the deal. Thus pissing Joyce off and Lou having something to dangle over Travis when he steps out of line again.
Though even without Travis, Marty and Lou have a thing going where he knows they can’t do anything, but that doesn’t stop her from tempting him. However, it could become more than sex for Marty as Lou’s banter is where the chemistry is.
Sadly for Joyce, she doesn’t enjoy the same type of fun in her life. Her husband Miles seems to not be into her, which makes trying to have children with him a problem since he isn’t gay. He just can’t get hard and ejaculate when trying to have sex with her. Mind you, porn works, and he comes onto Lou at a party Marty brings Lou to, but Joyce? They’re compatible, and maybe he knew her when she was simply Joyce Holt, but there is no real intimacy there.
This sucks for Joyce since it means she can only pay to get good head and an orgasm. Though, going by what Redmond pushes out, she might have been the one paid before. You see, before Redmond reveals he is in remission and will be tightening Joyce’s leash, he implied she was trash that perhaps was groomed into who she is today. But, back in the day? She would be part of Redmond’s entertainment when he wanted his porn to be live, in person, and who knows? Maybe with the option to join?
Either way, Lou getting Meredith makes up for Joyce greenlighting a bomb and could help Joyce survive until Redmond croaks. Which, unfortunately, is what Alex did. Yeah, he went from being sick to being out of the office, and the next thing we know, Lou is tasked with finding him and sees him face down in a pool.
