Physical Season 1 Episode 5 Spoilers

‘Physical’ episode 5, titled ‘Let’s Agree to Disagree,’ is going to see Sheila beginning to formulate her home video workout empire. Having “acquired” a camera and with rookie filmmaker Tyler in tow, the self-deprecating housewife is on the cusp of making big changes to her life, which we will very likely begin to see in the upcoming episode. Her dynamic with her husband Danny, which has already begun to shift as she becomes more assertive, might also fundamentally change. Danny himself has shown no signs of improvement, and it looks like it is only a matter of time before Sheila finally does something drastic. What it will be, remains to be seen.

One possibility might be hinted at with her evolving connection with the property developer John Breem. Though the two have only briefly spoken, both seem to be equally intrigued with the other. Of course, the fact that they are both on opposite sides of the debate about coastal conservation makes their connection all the more taboo. Considering we catch Sheila eying the man’s rear end at the mall, she may take her revenge on Danny by getting close to Breem.

The camera that Sheila steals from her friend Greta’s house is also a source of some worry, as Greta’s husband Ernie is looking for it. Though it seems unlikely that the expensive piece of equipment will get traced to Tyler, who now has it, Greta will likely begin to suspect Sheila when she sees her home exercise videos. Hence, in the upcoming episode 5, we might see a shift in Greta and Sheila’s friendship as the former begins to suspect the latter of stealing from her. We might also get to see more of Greta’s other suspicion — about her husband’s loyalty — play out.

Physical Season 1 Episode 4 Recap

Episode 4 finds Sheila unsuccessfully attempting to cajole her friend Greta to work out by giving her a private aerobics lesson. She soon leaves Greta’s home, but not before stealing an expensive video camera from her husband’s collection of electronic gadgets. She then comes home to find that Danny has recruited their seedy friend Jerry to be his campaign manager. Irritated, she stays silent and finds relief in the aerobics class she subsequently teaches.

When Danny misses an important fundraiser and gets high with a bunch of college students instead, Sheila finally explodes. The next morning, seeing her husband back to his boorish ways, she leaves her house and brings Tyler the recently stolen video camera. Tyler initially thinks the camera is for him to help make Danny’s campaign video. However, in the closing moments of episode 4, Sheila tells him to forget the campaign and that she wants to make a fortune instead.
