Episode 4 was pivotal due to Kate finding out the truth. While Miles’ colleagues believe what they saw was a twin, Kate went home and sought the truth. New and Original Miles both sat on the couch pathetically; one is trying to be overly sweet while the other begging to be understood. It is excellent television and superbly acted by both Paul Rudd and Aisling Bea.
Kate called the whole ordeal a violation, while Original Miles tried to argue that while legally it is, the entire situation was created because he was stuck. Of course, that argument did not fly, and I almost cringed while he said it. The New Miles declares it’s up to Kate what happens next. She asks New Miles to leave the house by evening.
Original Miles makes sure that New Miles has a place to live and a fresh start to life in Episode 4, but it is difficult to ignore the fact that he loves Kate — he has the same genes and memories. New Miles gets advice from his sister, who, in a nutshell, tells him to go on dating apps and get laid — that’s way better than looking at photos of Kate every night.
New Miles decides to sleep with a colleague from work, a woman who has tried it on with him for a long time, but he still does not feel fulfilled. The fact is, regardless that he is a clone, he has lost his wife to another man, and you can tell that is a fact he struggles to overcome.
Living with Yourself Season 1, Episode 4, “Soul Mate” ends with New Miles trying out a dating algorithm to find out who would be his real soul mate. It gives him one result — Kate.
