“Mistresses” throws Savannah (Alyssa Milano) a curveball in its latest episode, when she discovers she’s pregnant, which is particularly sticky because her husband, Harry (Brett Tucker), has a reduced chance of getting a woman pregnant and Savi just had an affair with her colleague, Dominic (Jason George).
“Savi is a good person who makes a really bad decision,” Milano tells Zap2it. “It’s devastating [when she finds out she’s pregnant]. She definitely has a very tough decision to make. She makes the decision in episode 5 and it’s the hardest thing she’s ever had to do.”
“It is possible it’s her husband’s and in order to find that out, she goes to a very dark, dark place,” Milano teases.
But Savannah has to figure it out, because when the baby comes, it’s going to be pretty obvious if it doesn’t belong to Harry.
“That’s always our joke — in the U.K. version, there were no racial
elements to [this particular love triangle],” says George,
“I happen to be African-American. We would always
joke that when the baby shows up, somebody’s gonna figure something out
pretty quick, one way or the other,” George laughs.
So, as the secret comes out, George tells us that the love triangle will become even more complex because Dom and Harry are forced to interact.
“To Dom, Harry becomes a full-fledged person over the course of this time. It’s interesting how it gets complex and how these guys have to deal with each other,” says George. “It’s not that Harry can’t have kids, it’s just his chances are slightly reduced. But then again, Dom and Savannah was just one night. It gets complex. The whole thing gets dealt with in more ways than the usual television angle.”
“Mistresses” airs Monday nights at 10 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
