Ten years after the third season finale, Emmy-winning drama series In Treatment returns for its fourth series with Emmy winner Uzo Aduba as the observant, empathetic Dr Brooke Taylor, the new therapist at the centre of the season. Set in present-day Los Angeles, the new series sees a diverse trio of patients in session with Brooke to help navigate a variety of modern concerns. Issues such as the global pandemic and recent major social and cultural shifts are a backdrop to the work Brooke will undertake — all while she deals with complications in her own personal life.
In the opening episodes, a troubling dream finds home health aide Eladio reaching out in the middle of the night, forcing Brooke to reestablishes boundaries as his therapist. Later, when Eladio requests medication, Brooke switches her focus to his history of insomnia.
Then we turn our attention to Colin – a self-proclaimed therapy enthusiast and proud child of hippies. He arrives for the first of four court-mandated sessions, but his evasiveness makes a recommendation regarding his recent release from prison difficult for Brooke.
