'Looking' fan scorecard: Move-in day

Season 2 | Episode 10 | “Looking for Home” | Aired Mar 22, 2015

Welcome back to the Looking fan scorecard. As fans of the show, we all know that what it really comes down to is Patrick’s love triangle with Richie and Kevin. Each week, I’ll give or take away points from Richie and Kevin based on their actions in that episode.

Last night was the finale, so now it is time to see if we can figure out who Patrick should really be with. Let’s take a look at how things went:

Last week I was gone, but two weeks ago we ended with Richie: 4, Kevin: 9.

We open on Kevin and Patrick moving into their new apartment together. Kevin loses a point right off the bat for putting up an enormous Field of Dreams poster. There’s nothing wrong with Field of Dreams, but there has to be some sort of consultation before putting up a huge poster right smack in the middle of the living room.

Richie: 4, Kevin: 8

Kevin immediately rectifies this by just being as sweet and positive as possible as they continue their move in. It really seems like this is finally going to work. Point for being a great boyfriend during move-in.

Richie: 4, Kevin: 9

Kevin is going to get another point here solely for superficial reasons since he is, as my girlfriend put it while watching, “the perfect amount of ripped because he’s not gross yet.”

Richie: 4, Kevin: 10

We spend the majority of this episode with Kevin and Patrick, and that night, they go to a party that another couple in their new building is throwing. Everything seems to be going great … until Patrick sees some of the guys looking at who in the building has profiles on Grindr, a gay hookup app. They see a profile with the same name as Kevin’s hometown, and Patrick’s face falls. This was not a cause for alarm for me yet, because there’s no harm in simply having a Grindr profile. I’m sure he had it from before they were together. However, Patrick then points out that it only shows your profile if you’ve been on it in the last few hours. So: Kevin had spent part of their romantic move-in day looking at possible other guys to hook up with. This is a huge problem, and Kevin’s gonna need to lose five points for such an egregious decision.

Richie: 4, Kevin: 5

Patrick gets so upset by this that he drags Kevin back upstairs to their apartment to discuss the situation. Kevin says he was just looking to see who in the building was on it, and he didn’t do anything. This is not enough of an explanation for Patrick (who skates on dangerously thin ice himself after claiming he doesn’t like peanut butter). Patrick then asks Kevin if he was hooking up with other guys while he was with John. Kevin avoids the question by making quips about how he was with Patrick during that time, but eventually admits that he had gotten some handjobs from other guys while with John too. Another point gone for Kevin, who spent the last two weeks building so much credibility.

Richie: 4, Kevin: 4

This discussion leads into what they define as cheating. It becomes clear that they want two different things from this relationship. Kevin is adamant that a situation could arise in a steamroom or during a massage where something might happen in the heat of the moment, and he wants that to be okay for both of them. Patrick says he would refuse any advances because he has made a commitment to Kevin, and he wouldn’t jeopardize that for a “handy.” Minus a point to Kevin for waiting until they move in together to drop the bomb that he wants an open relationship.

Richie: 4, Kevin: 3

This is the danger that comes with dating the guy who was cheating on his boyfriend with you. Many believe in the old saying, “Once a cheater, always a cheater.” As the argument continues, Kevin keeps getting upset that they are arguing because of his Grindr profile, proving that he’s not even listening to what Patrick wants or what the argument is really about. Kevin continues to be insistent about wanting a free pass, and he loses one last point for not being willing to compromise.

Richie: 4, Kevin: 2

In the last few minutes, we finally see Richie, whom Patrick asks for a haircut. Richie doesn’t do anything worthy of points here, but it’s absolutely worth mentioning that the episode ends with them together, and Patrick saying, “I’m ready” (even if he is referencing the haircut).

The finale didn’t give us any closure on who Patrick is going to be with, but this episode made it clear that he’s been kidding himself with how quickly he and Kevin have been moving. It might be time for Patrick to be alone for a while (and work on the whole not liking peanut butter thing). Or, as our final score suggests, maybe it’s time the show let us see what Richie and Patrick are like together again.

Cross your fingers that Looking gets renewed, so we can keep watching one of the best love triangles on TV. If it gets a third season, I will be right back here trying to figure out who Patrick should be with, and I hope you’ll join me.
