This episode is all about the characters trying to find their place. All four (Virginia, Bill, Libby, and Tessa) are operating in unchartered territory. Out of the lab and into the limelight, Bill and Virginia are both dealing with the repercussions of the book’s publication while Virginia’s daughter, Tessa, is also coming to terms with her mother’s newfound fame. Libby herself seems on the brink of transformation. She’s still trying to hold onto her belief in marriage, but she is no longer willing to kowtow to a man who has essentially shut her out of every aspect of his life.
Virginia Johnson has always had her hands full with her children, but Masters of Sex has elevated the good researcher’s stress level by growing her children from pint-sized to prepubescent, with hormones and resentment raging.
Viewers met the 15- and 17-year-old versions of Tessa and Henry right in the third season premiere, with Isabelle Fuhrman and Noah Robbins joining the cast as the grown versions of Virginia’s previously teeny tots.
Did any working mother watch this episode and not cry? I certainly did. First when I thought Virginia got an abortion, then again when she had her meltdown right before delivery, where all the doubt she pushed away came roaring back up. I’m both astounded and confounded that they crammed an entire pregnancy into an hour of television. The issues Virginia, Bill, Libby, and George confront in this episode, regarding this pregnancy, their relationships, and new definitions of family could be examined throughout an entire season.
The erstwhile Will Gardner is switching roles — and decades — in his sultry new gig over at the old coitus clinic on Masters of Sex.
Josh Charles enters the picture in this exclusive first look at the July 26 episode, which debuts his character Daniel Logan, a charismatic, self-made perfume magnate whose only desire is to bottle the very smell of sex.
After two seasons of the absorbing drama being centered squarely in the workplace tracking the professional and personal dramas of William Masters and Virginia Johnson, Masters of Sex has taken a decidedly different tactic for season 3: focus on the family. The year is 1965 and the primarily fictitious children are supplying all kinds of challenges for both Virginia and Bill as they grapple with the impact their professional choices have had on their personal lives.
Walking Dead alum Emily Kinney has landed a recurring role on the upcoming season of Masters of Sex, EW has learned.
Kinney, whose credits also include The Flash and Forever, will appear in a multi-episode arc as Nora. As a child, Nora was Bill and Libby Masters’ neighbor. Now in her 20s, poised and brimming with intelligence, Nora volunteers to become a sex surrogate in the next phase of Masters and Johnson’s research.
The most fascinating tension Masters of Sex explores isn’t sexual. It’s the one that exists between the public and private lives of patients treated by sex researchers William Masters (Michael Sheen) and Virginia Johnson (Lizzy Caplan). As season 3 begins, Bill and Virginia are starting to feel that tension themselves. It’s 1965, and the duo are preparing to release their first book, Human Sexual Response, which would make them famous far beyond the medical community.
Oh, how things have changed for Bill Masters and Virginia Johnson. What was once an underground sex study conducted in the back of a brothel is about to become the steamiest story of 1966 when Bill and Ginny finally go public… with their research, at least.
Fresh off a fantastic turn on Showtime’s Masters of Sex, Annaleigh Ashford has settled back into a familiar home on Broadway, where the stage veteran is slaying audiences as horrible dancer (but excellent candymaker) Essie in the hit revival of You Can’t Take It With You.
Can one scientific breakthrough eliminate heartache? Bill hopes so. Or if not, he’ll do what he always does when confronted by pain: ignore the problem and bury himself in his work.
But not everyone has that kind of coping mechanism. And so Barb, Lester, Libby, and Virginia are all left to find their own ways to deal with the anguish that Bill has unintentionally brought upon them.
