Over the course of six seasons, The L Word cemented itself as groundbreaking television for queer lives storytelling. Eleven years later they reprise their roles, alongside a cast of new, younger, queer characters, on The L Word: Generation Q. Bette, Shane, and Alice are best friends with well-creased comfort, humor, and real talk. They are more accomplished professionally and more developed interpersonally. By now, Beals, Moennig, and Hailey know their characters inside out, so the pleasure is ours. Six episodes into a perfect second season, their catharses eviscerate these scenarios.
With a sharp glance around the poker table, Bette says she will regret cheating on Tina for the rest of her life. Bette repents plenty to Tina in the original series but never states anything like this. Bette has another serious relationship following a break-up with Tina in the original series, which ends because Bette cheats on that girlfriend with Tina.
Bette's contorted heartbreak and desiring happiness for Tina is potent.

Older Shane knows that short-changing yourself cancels out growth. Angie The l word paige there is no singular truth, but there is instinct and reflection, and all choices have mostly irreversible consequences. Her road to happiness and respect in intimate relationships is slippery. Alice breaks. She thinks about Dana, sees her all the time.
Seeing Alice this raw is shocking; she never addresses her pain this way after Dana passes. Carrie and Tess enter Bette and Shane's worlds easily, without a shared backstory for the equivalent of six seasons, and their work is outstanding. Shane is my favorite OG catharsis-ee. If you experience tragedy and share what you learn, maybe you can help someone else navigate theirs.
She gives good advice, even when she doesn't act on it. Despite, or perhaps because of, her journey, The L Word: Generation Q Shane is becoming a mentor because she is clearing up. Her writing also appears in Cine Suffragette, Medium, her blog, walk the line, and Parts of Love, a poetry chapbook.
When she is not writing, she is walking, exploring, reading, watching a lot of TV and filmand doing the best life things with her three-year old son. Image via Showtime.
