Things are changing on B Positive. It looks like Gina and Eli are now an item. Drew is uncomfortable with the relationship, but he’s trying his best to accept it. Here’s a recap of what happened on B Positive.
Drew feels like he’s losing his best friend
During B Positive Season 1 Episode 13 (titled “Inflammatory Response”), Eli (Terrence Terrell) and Gina (Annaleigh Ashford) realize they have feelings for each other. When Eli stops by Drew’s (Thomas Middleditch) house to pick him up, he has a moment with Gina. She comes over to him to fix his collar, and they stare into each other’s eyes a little longer than normal. It’s clear something is starting to heat up between these two.
Drew and Eli go to a cigar bar and have a guy’s night out. Drew and Eli talk about life and relationships. Eli says he’s not sure if he has much to offer a woman besides fame and riches. It seems like that’s all the women he dates seems to care about. However, Drew says Eli has so much more to offer than wealth and fame.
Eli and Drew go back to his place and continue the party. When Drew and Norma leave to retrieve a burning pie, Eli and Gina kiss. They later decide to go on a date. Drew has a problem with them dating because he’s friends with Eli. He’s worried about losing Eli because he doesn’t have a lot of friends. He’s had problems making friends throughout his life, so he’s trying hard to hold on to Eli.
Eli and Gina have a date planned at his house. However, shortly after she arrives, she decides it might not be a good idea. Neither of them wants to hurt Drew. At first, Eli and Gina decide not to date, but she forgets her keys and has to return to his house. After going back to Eli’s house, she decides she can’t resist him. They decide they will secretly have a relationship and then tell Drew after his kidney transplant.
The secret is out on ‘B Positive’
During B Positive Season 1 Episode 14 (titled “Love Life Support”). Drew later discovers Gina and Eli have been seeing each other behind his back after she sneaks into the house late at night. Drew notices she’s wearing a “date-night dress” and she still has her party earrings on. Drew tells her he’s not happy with the situation because she lied to him.
Gina tries to explain her relationship with Eli has nothing to do with his friendship with Eli, but Drew disagrees. He reasons that if anything happens between them, he’s the one who’s stuck in the middle. However, Gina says if she and Eli are both his friends, he should want them to be happy.
Things get awkward between Eli and Drew during dialysis. Drew says he’s happy if they’re happy, but he’s having a tough time fully accepting the relationship. At the end of episode 14, Norma says she thinks Drew has feelings for Gina. He doesn’t deny her statement, so it will be interesting to see how things turn out in episode 15.
