I actually cowered a few times!
I watched most of it through my fingers, I had my hands over my eyes for most of that scene!
I wonder if my reaction to the psychiatrist is partially due to the fact that I don't watch much television (unless is has Jamie in it obviously ;) so it's not a trope that I have come across before. I can certainly see how it could become a major distraction if over used, but I thought it worked well here.
And in case you're wondering, I haven't had a chance to watch the next episode yet, and it's driving me mad!!!
