The Divine Miss/Mr M

spoiler alert: this post makes reference to the Dec 5 episode on CBC

What do we really know about Mark aka Marcia, except for the fact that he loves a saucy Merlot and a rousing debate about screw tops versus corks?

Not much really. Oh sure he likes to dress up as a woman from time to time (who doesn't? - ed). He's in the wine business (most people on the street are - ed). He sounds like he either stores marbles in his mouth or his teeth are double-jointed.(switch on the closed captioning if you want to know what he's saying - ed) He's dating Claudia (and her magnificent helmet of hair - ed) and he confides in Audrey.

Well we do know that Marvelous Mark doesn't see anything wrong with getting together with the lads and having a drink - in heels and wigs. And he seems to have forgotten that ugly incident a few weeks ago when he was beat up by a group of yobs and promised to put 'Marcia' in the closet.

Now Audrey is stuck in the middle, keeping Mark's secret while incurring the jealous wrath of Claudia. Is it fair for Mark to continually mislead the owner of Perm Suspect? Doesn't he realize that he is driving a wedge between two hairstylists/frenemies?  How much longer will he resist the temptation to sing along with the soundtrack to Priscilla Queen of the Desert?  As I say, we really don't know much about Mark but so far I'm not that impressed with him... or her.
