GIRL IN THE MIRROR, PART ONE Recap & Spoiler
Episode Title: GIRL IN THE MIRROR, PART ONE
Air Date: 5/19/22
Writer: Jonathan Buford
Director: Michelle Christoffer

The gang is all hanging out, having a fun time. Out of nowhere, Darla gets a phone call which leaves her emotionally distraught. All of the crew takes turns trying to figure out what is making her upset but she says nothing. Finally, she mumbles, “Vanessa died.” Master Himas watches, purely enjoying Darls’a weakness (he’s more heartless and cruel in this episode than any other). He decides to use Darla’s crisis against her somehow. Henry tracks Darla down at a horse stable as she walks somber up and down the halls. He stops her and they have a nice, gentle chat, and Henry brings up the kiss. Darla seems to have her priorities elsewhere and explains that when she was a kid, she paralyzed her cousin, Vanessa. In a flashback, we see a young Vanessa and a young Darla at a horseback riding lesson. Vanessa is rude and obnoxious (think Veruca Salt) and Darla is overly sweet. When it is finally time for the girls to ride the horse, Darla is called up first but Vanessa puts up a temper tantrum. Darla politely lets her go first. Vanessa climbs up on the horse and is bucked off and it steps on her. Cut to the hospital, where Vanessa blames Darla for the accident, saying she sent bad vibes her way and demanded she have a ride first. Vanessa is convinced Darla knew that the horse was untamed and wanted Vanessa to test it out, to see if it was suitable for her. Darla protests but finally is convinced that she is to blame. Back at the stables, Henry says that Darla obviously had nothing to do with it but she is not hearing him. She explains that Vanessa spent her entire life crippled and finally killed herself, sick of the life of limitations. She says it should have been her that got bucked off the horse, and runs away in tears. Darla locks herself in her apartment and stares into her mirror. Her face is frazzled and a mess. She wonders out loud what would have happened if she had gotten on that horse first. The mirror glows some pink color and the glass turns soft. Suddenly, a hand reaches out and grabs Darla. Darla slams back against the wall and the person is pulled out from the glass – it’s Darla, except she’s paralyzed to a wheel chair. Paralyzed Darla is nasty and snarls at Real Darla, saying she is stupid and hopeless. Darla feels guilty and realizes this bitter, handicapped woman isn’t her cousin but her if circumstances were different. Real Darla does her best to assist Paralyzed Darla and takes her outside. But a trip to the park just proves that Paralyzed Darla will never be satisfied with anything Real Darla does for her. In fact, she gets accusatory of Real Darla of forcing her to be dependent on others, when she’d much prefer being independent. Darla starts off towards Professor Beckett’s lab, to ask for advice and seek a solution.
