* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: Tom's actions, demeanor, and treatment after the incident in Meredith's office echo what female victims have been subjected to--he takes a shower afterwards, he has nightmares, is uncomfortable when discussing the incident, his Meredith's prior relationship is used against him, him going to her office late at night is regarded as expectation of or consent to sexual activity.
