In the second part of the multi-episode "Daddy's Girlfriend" arc on "Louie" (Thu., 10:30 p.m. ET on FX), fans got to see the first date between Louie and his bookstore love interest -- played by Parker Posey. In classic "Louie" fashion, it was one uncomfortable moment after another.
The date wound up dominating the entire episode, climaxing in a vintage clothing store where Posey's character, not named Tape Recorder, convinced Louie to put on a dress. She said it was a sign to prove that he liked her. When he put it on, she laughed in his face, but at least he passed the test.
The date involved a lot of Posey's character dragging Louie around New York after she was refused service at a bar she claimed to frequent. It culminated in her dragging him up an unspecified number of stairs to the roof of a building. She thought the treacherous climb was worth the view, while Louie is scared of heights.
Louie liked her, but it wasn't clear if he still did by the end of the episode. He dealt with a lot of exasperation and confusion throughout the night. It may take him a day or so to process what happened before he can figure out his thoughts about seeing her again.
The new season of "Louie" continues Thursdays at 10:30 p.m. ET on FX.
