Sensitive Skin Full Episode Guide

  • When Orlando surprises Davina with the news that he is getting married to Cheryl, Davina tries to patch things up with her, despite Imaginary Al's objections. Meanwhile, Roger unknowingly hires Veronica's ex-lover Lenny Gordon to represent him at his fraud trial, with painful consequences for all of them. And, after repeated efforts, Davina finally finds the courage to say goodbye to Al.

  • Davina needs to get rid of Al's clothes now that she's settled onto the houseboat, but she can't bring herself to just give them all away. She tries to fob items off on Sam and Theo, and, when that doesn't work, tries wearing them herself. Her unconventional look catches the eye of David, a charming personal shopper. There's an immediate spark, and their afternoon together turns into a heady whirlwind romance which might just prove too good to be true.

  • Davina is slowly adjusting to island life when she has a surprising encounter with an old friend whose wife happens to be infamous radio host Sarah Thorn. Davina accepts Sarah's offer to attend her ?voice' workshop, which turns out to be a woman's retreat for the disenfranchised. Meanwhile Davina is frustrated by her inability to figure out Al's computer password and when she discovers that Al and Sarah had a history, she wonders if she ever really knew him at all. Her frustration grows. When the workshop concludes and she finally finds her voice, she uses it to tell Sarah off. Finally, Davina has an epiphany and is able to crack Al's password. When she does, she discovers a letter that proves that her doubts about him were unfounded.

  • Davina is unable to move on while living in the ultra-hip condo. She is haunted by memories of Al and their life together. She accepts an offer to bunk with Veronica and Roger, but that arrangement proves a little more complicated than expected. Meanwhile, Theodore puts his real estate license to good use and tries to help Davina find a new home. But moving isn't as easy as she'd hoped; partly because Al's spirit seems to be telling her to live near the lake. Once the condo is sold, a major faux pas by Roger forces Davina out of her sister's house and she finds herself homeless. Eventually Sam comes to the rescue, offering Davina an unexpected sanctuary.

  • The season finale finds Al's job in question, having his car broken into, receiving health news and more.

  • The death of her mother forces Davina to work with Ronnie on funeral arrangements. Meanwhile, Al's doctor thinks lack of sex is causing his neck pain.

  • An argument with old friends leads Al and Davina to take piano lessons together, but Orlando's neuroses stand between them and their piano.

  • Al refuses to believe his doctor may be taking advantage of him, and it's Davina who makes an unexpected contact at a networking party for writers.

  • Davina pays a visit to her comatose mother, Al stands up for himself and a chance meeting with some old friends sparks thoughts of the past.

  • Davina and Al decide to change things up to fight the middle age blues, but their new loft proves to be a step in the wrong direction.
