Wow. That's a real shame but looking on the bright side, can you imagine if he didn't back out? She would have had a terrible marriage without feeling comfortable in her own skin. If she's strong, she'll not only get through this, she'll meet the right man for her and have a fantastic wedded life. Tell her we're all thinking of her!

They don't have to do it at all. But I'd like it to be a bit more even from a viewing standpoint. It's not fun for me (and this is just about me) to write about something where half of the main cast is despised like Grace is. I try to objectively look at the characters and then subjectively state opinions on them. I find my ability to do that more difficult when a show is lopsided. That said, I am still not with you on all of this careful calculation from Grace. She was just rolling with it because it felt good. I don't necessarily think she was in her right mind.. it was a fantasy that just so happened to play out in real life. She was swept up in the moment. The full blown relationship between Grace and Simon? I don't see it. It was sex. Fun sex, granted, but sex. And a bit of therapeutic chatting thrown in. Anyway. Sorry to interrupt. I know I just throw a kink into everyone's happy time. :-)

My initial thought is that the bigger named stars were brought in to give the show some weight before allowing the newbies to carry it forward. My second thought is that additional B actors will take residence as the group carries on across the US. They will come and go with just enough legitimacy to keep people tuning it. That said, it was a damn good episode. I really enjoyed Murphy, to be honest. He went from being a pain in the ass to understanding he is the future and sort of embracing it. I'm glad I've been watching.

Honestly, if season 2 shows a Grace that far gone, I won't be watching. I am hoping we discover the Neil did something equal in nature over the last 20 years to put Grace in a better light. If this is just another "make the woman look like a heel" series, I'm out.

Of "the West characters"? This is TV. Assessing characters is what I do. How about you head on over to episode two and rebut what I shared about Joe and a Barry.

That's not going to happen. She might be letting her crush on Oliver go for now, but she deserves to live. She just saw how quickly someone can die. I don't blame her one bit.

Modwild

What? What am I missing here? How can you call yourself old fashioned and then assume Felicity would be sleeping with Ray? First of all, she took him up on his offer of a job. Second, if she goes on a date with him, good for her. She stood idly by while Oliver DID have sex with Sara and if he can't commit to her, Felicity deserves to go out and enjoy life a little. Nothing she has ever done shows she would jump into bed with anyone. Dating is a thing, a thing without sex.

Modwild

No. Not true. I can't hate her, she's brand new. I think her character is being written poorly right off the bat, however.

You have to know that I'm from Pittsburgh -- once you're surrounded by accents like this one, others become more difficult to determine! ;-)

It's couple specific. There is no right answer to their problems because we are not them. They were scared shitless when they witnessed what went down with Mateo's parents. That means it's not best for them. Not right now. The fact Neil stayed and, as everyone is so quick to point about, became an escort to discover what was going on with his wife instead of talking to her hints that he felt culpable in some way. After all, he just had his big epiphany. If it was huge to him, he knows it was impacting his marriage. Is he at fault because Grace had an affair? No. But do they share the fault for not making their marriage and they love a priority? Indeed. He knows that and is willing to work with it. Why isn't anyone willing to allow him that decision like they allow him the decision to cheat to discover what it was Grace was looking for with Simon? Neil is her husband and isn't as angry with her as viewers. That has to say something about them as a couple.
