The Shrink Next Door Episode 5 Spoilers
Episode 5, titled ‘The Family Tree,’ will see Dr. Ike inserting himself even further into Marty’s affairs. Considering that his new desk is brought in, we can expect the psychiatrist to get more comfortable with his lucrative new position at Marty’s family business while charging the latter exorbitantly. However, seeing as how uncomfortable Marty is about spending money, we might finally see him push back and perhaps try and stop the doctor from chalking up expenses. The latter also seems to have cut a hefty personal cheque using the Yaron Foundation account (bankrolled by Marty), which could cause some friction between the two central characters.
Finally, Marty’s blossoming relationship with Hannah might just come to a sudden and heartbreaking end now that Dr. Ike is acting as their intermediary. This could make the timid Marty even more withdrawn and consequently more dependent on the insidious Dr. Ike.
The Shrink Next Door Episode 4 Recap
Episode 4, titled ‘The Foundation,’ opens with Marty literally “cutting” his sister Phyllis out of his life. The sister, who doesn’t realize the gravity of the situation, is shocked to get a card containing snippets of her face that have been cut out from every picture of hers that Marty has. We soon find out this idea was supported (and possibly suggested) by Dr. Ike, who then convinces his clueless patient to start a foundation. Soon enough, the Yaron Foundation is formed, for which Marty provides the bulk of funding but both he and Dr. Ike are named equal partners.
The doctor convinces Marty to attend an exorbitant charity event to promote the new foundation but takes credit for it himself. He also makes an atrociously expensive purchase using the foundation’s money, sending Marty into a panic attack which lands him in the hospital. Seeing as Marty’s new would-be girlfriend Hannah is getting suspicious of his motives, Dr. Ike begins to work at dismantling the relationship even as he uses the foundation money to make a hefty donation to a prestigious school he wants his daughters to attend.
