We wanted to keep it relevant for all readers, so we put a cutoff at 2003.
And I think you're interpreting from your bias against women and the character. We'll have to agree to disagree.
Again, rewatch the episode. She said very clearly she had no interest in paying for sex, but asked him if he ever got paid to talk and could she write about their conversation. She most certainly did not agree to go with him for his real services. It wasn't even on her radar. There's no argument here. What you thought you watched, you didn't.
Abby didn't hook up with Carlos. She spent time with him talking. How does that make her a whore? He rubbed her feet. If that's forbidden, then I give up. She paid him because she understands he does that to make money, even if they only talked. That was their deal. I think you need to watch again. There wasn't even a kiss. Instead she got material for a new book. She has to get material somewhere because she's being blocked everywhere.
Thanks for picking up the reviews with gusto, Sammy! I'm so disgusted with Daphne and so happy others are, as well. I wouldn't have been able to take it if Emmett and Toby acted as blase as John did. What was that man thinking? They should have all gone to the police station immediately. Bay isn't a criminal and didn't grow up on the mean streets. She's going to have a hard time understanding that world. I hurt for her.
I think you have to watch in the same way you watch The Blacklist. None of it is very believable, but it's damn fun. It's not about what we see on the surface, in my opinion. It's everything that's boiling underneath, such as the interpersonal relationships and what appears to be impending backstabbing at any moment! Glad to see you here, too, reality adictt!!
I agree with everything you said and that's why I love it. It's about so much more than terrorism or government. They're all so shady! I had to laugh when Charlie got to Yemen and had absolutely no support at all, but took it in stride, and the number of times Nick said he hated Yemen. I like them together.
It wouldn't surprise me in the slightest if he's still alive. Make he's angry at his mother and orchestrating things to make her look bad. Or had orders to kill Charlie. That gun was pointed at her. It's just a fun show, so I'm open for anything!
What hens? First, my question of you has been why you continue eu to be duplicitous in how you view breadwinners and caregivers. Second, I have said nothing derogatory about Japke, as I like both him and Abby. They may say mean things when upset, but it's never heartfelt. You started the conversation with "I'm sticking up for Jake because I care so much for women" and then bashed the main characters, who has been great. There are no claws out because there's no reason to bring them out. Your arguments aren't logical when it comes to fictional dissolving marriages. You pick sides without having full information and judge with little evidence. I like discussing it, but don't have the information in front of me to judge Grace anymore than I do Jake. There isn't enough available for me to feel good judging. When you suggested Abby was only into Nate because he was successful, I had to step back because there's absolutely nothing written to indicate that. They wrote words to each other that validated their feelings toward their marriages. Nothing about that scenario screams "I want this man because he has money!" It was emotional and based on common beliefs and feelings... Until it got real.
Why does there need to be a comparison? Jake is in a full blown relationship and Abby went on one date. For the record, EVERY MAN I'VE EVER DATED was someone I wouldn't marry, as it turned out. Should I have left the stage open and not dated at all? I also didn't consider them affairs. They were dates or boyfriends. (I wasn't screaming above, I just don't know another way to emphasize my point on disqus.) There are plenty of men and women who date people they would never marry. Lumping Nate into a category isn't fair, however.. Abby had a deep emotional connection to him because she was discovering (as was he) that her marriages was over. That she could find acceptance with another man. It only took one physical night for them both to realize that's all they would ever be to each other, but that's not something to be embarrassed about. Finally, we don't know Jake didn't date or have sex before Becca. We may never know that. It doesn't really matter, as long as he and Abby can keep themselves together long enough to raise their kids and remain friends. I see them having a great chance of doing that.
