The second season of this breakout show continues to blow us away. From psychic sessions to beginning to heal, emotions ran high during last week’s episode. Here’s five things you need to know about last week’s episode, “Grand Canyon” to prepare you for tonights episode.
1) Thrown out items are the least of Maggie and Gary’s worries – enter Maggie’s mom
As we saw in last week’s episode, Maggie and Gary are adjusting to officially living together and are doing quite well for the most part. Gary has learned boundaries when it comes to certain things and Maggie is tearing down that wall she’s had up from the moment they met. Just when everything is seeming too good to be true, Maggie’s mom arrives for what was planned to be a weekend getaway and drops the bomb that she is leaving her husband and moving to Boston. While this may be a story line we’ve seen before in other shows, the impact of this decision is still just as huge for these two lovebirds. They’re still trying to navigate life together and with Maggie’s mom in the mix, it’s bound to get complicated. To make matters worse, it appears that Patricia hasn’t come to Boston to just see her daughter but may have already found a new love interest. This situation is going to definitely cause some friction between Maggie and Gary but I have faith that they will get past it and grow even more than they already have. If not, I’m out! LOL
2) Eddie and Katherine are hopefully on their way to a new beginning
First off, I have to say that I’m still not over the fact that Katherine left her 8 year old son home ALONE without a word or care. I get it, you’re devastated over the revelation that Delilah and Eddie had a baby but damn girl, that’s YOUR son you’re leaving alone! It’s just mind boggling to me that more emphasis was not put on this, but I digress. Katherine returned this week and unfortunately, she and Eddie fell back into the awkward façade they had for the majority of season one. I’m really rooting for these two but they make it hard sometimes when they fall back into old habits. After a visit to garden day with judgmental moms, it seemed that Katherine would leave again and I honestly would have been so done. But unlike 2×01, Katherine had a moment of clarity and decided that instead of trying to get back to the people they were when they first met, they should try and be the people they are and move forward from there…baby steps. I like this new attitude and I’m excited to see where this takes them.
3) Delilah yet again has to be rescued emotionally *insert eye roll emoji*
I’m honestly so over Delilah and always needing to have someone help and save her. Every week it’s something new with her. My goodness woman, get your shit together! Your kids are thriving and healing in ways you can’t even begin to fathom. It just blows my mind how she acts at times. When it seems everyone is happy and moving on, she has to drag them back down with her. It’s just frustrating as hell. I really hope she’s done with trying to pull Eddie back to her. Every time he tries to separate himself from her and work on his marriage to Katherine, something miraculously pops up and she needs him or his help. There’s times I really like Delilah but 99.9% of the time, she is my least favorite character. I just think that she’s stronger than she gives herself credit for and I really wish she’d find her footing in the world and stop guilting everyone into feeling bad for her. JUST STOP, WOMAN!
4) Regina learns a lesson in humility and asking for help
While Andrew isn’t my most favorite person, I do truly feel he has the best intentions when it comes to Regina’s restaurant. He wants it to be a success and see Regina excel and live her dream. On the flip side, I can see Regina’s point of view. She had a restaurant before and ran it by herself and it went under. She’s put everything she has into the new one (and even more so, it was the last deal Jon ever made before his death) so there is a lot riding on its success. Asking for help can be hard, whether it’s asking for emotional or physical help and it’s something that Regina is having to work on. The restaurant business is one of the hardest and Regina is finally seeing that she doesn’t have to do it all alone. She has people in her corner who care and want her to succeed just as much as she wants to. I’m interested to see what happens next and how her partnership with Andrew will grow develop.
