Series 2 Summary

Season two of the provocative US drama finds Dr William Masters looking for a new job after being fired from the maternity hospital and Virginia Johnson working for Dr DePaul.

  • Episode 1 - Parallax

    The ramifications of Masters' disastrous presentation ripple beyond his firing from the maternity hospital as Libby, worried about supporting their new baby, pushes him to get another job.

    Johnson, still working for Dr DePaul, must fight off the unwanted advances and verbal innuendos stemming from the general belief that she was the woman in the film shown at the presentation.

  • Episode 2 - Kyrie Eleison

    Masters begins his new job at Memorial Hospital - under Betty's extortive terms - only to find his new boss insisting he leave Johnson behind in favour of a hand-picked secretary.

    Johnson, who is still feeling alienated at the maternity hospital, is torn between pressing Masters to rehire her and staying by DePaul's side as her condition worsens.

  • Episode 3 - Fight

    Masters delivers a baby with ambiguous genitalia and urges the parents not to surgically assign the infant a gender out of either fear or the desire for convenience.

    When Johnson and Masters meet up at a hotel for a secret rendezvous, they divide their attention between sexual role-play and a televised boxing match, prompting Johnson to unearth the details of Masters' troubled childhood.

    Masters is thwarted by the head of the hospital, a man with a prurient interest in the study, when he tries to bring Johnson on board as his assistant, while Betty attempts to conceal her infertility from Gene.
