I did see the clip. That she went to therapy before learning that Neil knows is a good sign. It also helps fill in the gaps of where she has been when people have assumed she must be off with Simon. I think what you said below nailed it. Her self esteem has suffered greatly over the years. I think men naturally assume that a beautiful woman understands she is such, but if Neil put work first (in her eyes) then it makes sense. One of the major issues between men and women is that men think doing odd things like putting air into his wife's car tires shows that he loves her. To her she sees him avoiding spending time with her and fiddling with the car. Communication between the sexes is extraordinarily tricky.

My response is: there are 18 years worth of their lives we know very little about. We don't know that Neil was always supportive of her having a career. Perhaps his idea of a mother was one who raised their child from home. There is far too much we don't know to assume anything about Grace's actions throughout the years (not working, etc.).

New Girl Review: Horse Hoof Hands

Fixed.

If I were de Pablo I would have walked way from fans like you, too. Spread kindness. Ziva didn't suck, but the vitriol people spread in her name does.

Modwild

I would agree with that. I always expect him to come back. Stabler denial. ;-)

I honestly couldn't believe Volcheck did that. I screamed a religious profanity at the top of my lungs. It just blurted out. I was so shocked. It's impossible to turn away, isn't it?

Modwild

I do, too. He's very flawed and deeply damaged, but he WANTS to do the right thing. He just cannot figure out how to do that without coming completely unwound. If Abby died and Ray had to care for the kids himself, that would be a heck of a twist.

Modwild

I think Ray is more attracted to Kate than either Ashley (she's a piece) or Abby (the mother of his children). It was good that Ray noticed Abby wearing makeup. It seemed off on her somehow.

Thanks Doug! Even given what you said about Abby and her impulsive nature, I still can't imagine why any sane person would want to get involved with her. I, too, am still hoping that Jim turns out to be more than expected. If not, I have to question his ability to do his job. A little more background on Abby before deciding to do harm to Cookie would have been in order! I'm not sure about Steve. He's definitely a strange man, but the schtick he sells makes sense. He has the right ideas about things even if he's not the best person to be selling them. It seems he might be looking for someone who can match his own charisma (which Ray can do) and perhaps that's why he doesn't get angry at Ray's involvement with Ashley. At first I was repulsed by Steve. After he opened the door and offered an ear to Ray, I started to find him more fascinating than repulsive. Maybe they'll be good for each other in an odd way.

Thank you for the compliment. Very kind. This season has been so stellar I cannot even imagine what Season 3 might hold. Too bad we have to wait a year!
