True Tori Season 2 Episode 8 marked the second season finale of this train wreck of a Lifetime reality show, and in the course of the hour, Tori was hospitalized.
What landed her there? How did Dean McDermott react? What epic fight concluded the season, and where did it leave the embattled couple going forward?
When True Tori Season 2 Episode 8 got underway, Tori Spelling was still pissed at Dean for bringing home another woman at the end of last week's installment.
Pissed may not do justice to it, really. Of course, by Dean bringing home other woman, we don't mean Emily Goodhand, or some plaything to have fun with.
It was just a female friend he met in rehab that he thought would be a good babysitter. Probably not the best idea to hire her and not tell your wife, Dean.
Still, Tori just unloads on him in therapy, and he SCREAMS in response:
“If you don’t like my instincts, you don’t like my choices, you don’t think I can get here, you don’t think I can understand your feelings, than why the f--k are you with me?”
She questions how that would be okay, given ... well, Emily Goodhand.
“I don’t know. I can’t think for other women," said the frustrated father of four. "This was my thought process - good, bad or indifferent. I thought I was helping!”
He storms out of the room, later texting a producer for the show and says he's done. Not just with the show, but possibly for good. He may not come home.
Things take an even more dramatic turn as Tori is rushed to the hospital.
Dean dutifully takes care of the kids while Tori Spelling was treated following a nervous breakdown she may or may not have hinted was Ebola for attention.
While she was hospitalized, Dean spoke of how much he misses her.
“Things have been really peaceful and calm at home," McDermott reflected. "I’ve gotta be honest or it’s not gonna work, and it’s really peaceful here.”
So he doesn't miss her at all basically. Dean then proceeds to feed the kids black mac and cheese for dinner. It was a mummy-themed idea, but still.
If his wife decides to watch True Tori online, then watch the f--k out!
Tori eventually leaves the hospital, only to suffer multiple additional breakdowns, further demonstrating how unstable she and this marriage really are.
That appears to drive her man over the edge. Dean quits the show.
"The lines are so blurred with this f--king show,” he says, noting that he doesn't know if he's taking to Tori Spelling or to True Tori cameras anymore.
“I want to share my feelings and thoughts with you. I don’t want people seeing me go through this process. It’s just not good for me," Dean admits.
"I don’t feel good about it anymore ... I just can’t continue on.”
“Where does that leave me?” Tori laments, and Dean says he has no answer, but he will not be continuing with the show next season if there is one.
Honestly it's hard to blame the guy.
