First look at the lesbian couple on “The Big C”

Before The Big C debuted on Showtime, we told you there would be a lesbian showing up before season end. Well, the finale is Monday, which means we finally get our lesbian character. Caution: Major spoilers ahead.

With Marlene offing herself on the last episode, her daughters come to town for the funeral. Cathy (Laura Linney) introduces herself to them at the service. Watch what happens.


Buttercup? Wow, now that’s a name! I’m not sure what else we can expect from Gina and Marlene’s other daughter in the rest of this episode, but they do seem to keep a sense of humor about their mean-spirited mother. The dark comedy is one of the reasons I love this show.
