This was a relatively slow week in the world of summer television, but it still provided us with some discussion-worthy moments. The Real Housewives of New Jersey provided some intense scenes of family drama once again, with Teresa engaged in passionate fights with her brother Joe last Sunday and her cousin Rosie this week. The Bachelorette featured possibly its most awkward date ever last Monday, as Desiree sat in the middle of an intense cross-examination of two-faced Ben by federal prosecutor Michael. And So You Think You Can Dance had its first real performance show of the season.
That SYTYCD performance show is where my favorite moment of the week comes from. Jasmine Mason and Alan’s Travis Wall contemporary piece was breathtaking, and it was filled with small, detailed movements that spoke to both their skills as individual dancers and the surprising strength of their early partnership. The moment when Jasmine fell backwards into Alan’s arms with complete abandon was one of the most intense representations of the trust between partners I’ve ever seen on this show, and it’s the single greatest thing I saw on my TV this week.
