So Grace told Stephanie that they had their best sex when they were in debt and just bought the house? I'll go look for that.
When and who said the best sex they ever had was as a result of them buying a big house they (apparently) couldn't afford? I missed that. I don't believe, by the way, that they couldn't afford it. I know how much money managers make. I know how much salesman who merely sell interest in funds make. They can afford that house and another if they want.
When I earlier said "good for her" for cheating and finding herself, I wasn't condoning it. Of course it was a horrible thing to do. The one good thing that came out of it, much like the good thing that came from Neil doing the same thing, was that it opened her eyes. I'm just guessing that they were dead inside and without a chance of ever addressing their issues before this all happened. Now, even given all the awful things they've done, at least maybe they can get angry, scream and toss it all out on the table. It's really becoming a situation of "what do we have to lose?" ya know?
I don't have an answer about their marriage before we knew them. We do know that she put her entire life on hold to be a wife and raise a child. It seems fair to expect not to be neglected at any point. To have and to hold. Holding is just as important as the having. Open up a bit. Step back and look at it outside your gender. Is having a career difficult? Hell yeah. Sometimes you don't want to make an effort at home because you've spent so much at work. But that's not the way marriage works. It's a partnership and both parties must be equally engaged for it to succeed. That's obviously not the case here. They checked out for various reasons. Is leaving emotionally or sexually better or worse? Neither is above the other, not if someone wants their marriage to continue.
If you think the marriage was well over before Simon appeared, then how can you blame Grace? We don't know the full story of their lives before that moment. It's really interesting that this show is features both a male and female perspective, because it's giving me some good insight to the male psyche. Not from Neil's perspective, but from a viewers. As a woman, I'm blaming both partners for losing sight of their love, commitment and vows. That doesn't to be shared across the sexes.
You guys are completely unwilling to see any good in Grace. It's really sad. Somehow Neil has all these layers to his personality (that he for some reason doesn't want to share with the whom who should be the most important person in his life) but you have flat out decided that Grace is to blame for everything. I daresay people are projecting. Neither character has been open and honest about how they are or what they want and there isn't blame about who is ending the marriage. It's just a tragic situation.
Neil hates his job so much that within one day he was willing to dial back everything, lie in court and take a boat load of money to continue that career. He knew how to do the right thing, as we saw in his courtroom fantasy causing Anika to rise and applaud, but he didn't do the right thing for himself. He chose to continue the life he had. I don't recall Grace forcing him to take any particular stand. I could be wrong, but I think that was all Neil's doing. I don't think Neil is invested in the marriage as much as he's invested in coming out on top and that's why when he found the artistic photo, he went berserk. Someone else saw his possession without his permission.
I haven't watched this series since the first season, but I want to thank you for this comment. It made me laugh out loud. There were seriously no subtitles? That would have infuriated me.
Nope. Her husband is a hedge fund manager. Finance is a top secret business. It's the norm that he can't discuss his clients so it wouldn't set off any alarm bells. I worked in that biz for over a decade. I wasn't even allowed to let some of the clients know why I was calling until they gave me permission to speak freely. LOL
Gaping plot hole being the gold arrow? It was a trap, they didn't expect Robin to escape their grasp let alone understand aliens and spaceships. Who would know The Doctor would be there?
