If you thought the drama from Dr. Karen Kim's affair with her patient Tom was wrapped up with the court case and the suspension you would be wrong. Monday night's season finale of "Mistresses" was full of action packed drama September 9, 2013. Savvy's baby daddy was revealed (read details here) and both of the men in her life confessed their love. April chose her man, but was it the right choice (read details here)? And someone is caught in the crossfire at Karen's home.
While Karen was preparing to join the girls for a birthday weekend in Palm Springs, Elizabeth (Tom's widow and killer) showed up to 'have a talk'. Karen has always seemed to be open to finding conflict resolution in her life (this was evident throughout the entire season) so it would stand to reason that she would want to help Karen find closure.
But what Karen doesn't know is that Sam told Elizabeth that he too, slept with Karen. What is a mother and wife to do when she discovers the woman who stole her husband was also sleeping with her son? So when Elizabeth pulled the gun on Karen it was dramatic but fans probably knew it was coming.
Intelligent Karen remained cool under pressure, offering Elizabeth her vice (alcohol) which gave her the opportunity to dial 911 and hide the phone. Elizabeth discovering the phone was not enough to keep her from killing the good doctor, after all she was the one who killed her husband.
Instead she decided to have Karen commit suicide with vodka and morphine. Sam rushes in to rescue Karen - who he admits he can't live without. There is a struggle and someone is shot, who? Guess we will have to wait for season two to find out.
