8. KERRY (CONT’D) Kerry gave him the gift and they watched the end of the Dodger game-- The Dodgers had been losing until she arrived but they came back for a victory! SHAWN joked that she was a good luck charm. They went to dinner at a nearby Italian restaurant, Alimento, and had drinks at Thirsty Crow, where he offered to pass along her script to a friend who works on her dream television show. She accepted. Things seemed to be moving right along. They slept together, as usual. And that was that.... Or was it? What I didn’t mention was that on the way to SHAWN’s house in a Lyft that night, Kerry pulled up next to her ex boyfriend driving with his current girlfriend. It was the first time she had seen him in person in almost a year. Kerry switches seats. KERRY (CONT’D) Every time I see a White Nissan Versa I’m like, “Omg, it’s gonna be him” but it never is. This time we were driving up and I saw it-- the license plate said 7CK... I just knew it was gonna be him. And it was. He didn’t see me, thank god. It felt kinda good because I truly didn’t feel anything for him by looking at him. He and his girlfriend literally didn’t phase me at all. Kerry switches back. KERRY (CONT’D) But was it a omen? If you remember before, Kerry arrived at SHAWN’s house during the 7th inning of the Dodgers game... The ex boyfriends license plate is 7CK. Coincidence? Or omen of the death of a relationship?

9. KERRY (CONT’D) This brings right up to that Monday night text asking if SHAWN could call Kerry. While we don’t have footage of the phone call, we do have a first hand account. Kerry switches seats. KERRY (CONT’D) Yeah, he basically said that he really liked a lot of things about me but that he just didn’t have “that feeling” that he wants to have with someone he’s in a relationship with. Looking back, I guess I didn’t either. He also said he has problems expressing emotions and with emotional availability, which I identified pretty early on, so he wasn’t even sure if he was capable of feeling “that feeling”. I did ask him why he started acting so boyfriendy towards the end, and he said he was trying to “go with it” and see if he’d feel a spark. I guess I think that’s kind of shitty. At the end of it I told him to have a nice life and we had a laugh about that. And I’m totally gonna follow up on that script pass along he did on my behalf. I think I just wanted a person and he was A person, but he wasn’t THE person, so... it’s fine. SFX: SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC THAT FADES OUT AFTER 6 SECS KERRY (CONT’D) Will Kerry continue to go after emotionally stunted and unavailable men? Will she moderate another panel in hopes of meeting a perfect partner? Was running into her ex an omen? Will she get hired on Transparent? Tune into Season 2 of EMOTIONALLY UNAVAILABLE, which will probably drop sometime in early Spring after another short lived relationship (beat) THANK YOU EVERYONE I’M KERRY O’NEILL AND I AM VERY ALONE!!
