Just when I had given up on television, thinking that was nothing that I wanted to watch, I fell deep into the Maggie hole and I have no regrets. Sometimes Hulu tells you what you need and it’s just your responsibility to trust and believe in it.
Maggie is that show. Now I watch an episode of this show, stop and write my review and go back to watching the next episode. I have feelings, what can I say.
We’ve gone into this episode know one thing – our ship has been chosen. We need Ben and Maggie to end up together. Like it’s really not something that we consider debatable. Sure, Ben has a girlfriend and he loves her, but it’s not about Jessie. She’s great and all and we’re definitely willing and able to stick through with them for as long as it takes, but we have our end game.
Maggie is distracted by Ben and Jessie, so much so that she can’t concentrate on her job. She’s definitely focused on Ben.
Here’s the thing – I don’t understand her hangup to a point because she was the one who left Ben. But I love to see that she really does care and isn’t really ready to walk away from it. At the same moment, it’s completely unfair to Ben and Jessie.
I’m not a monster people – just because I have my ship doesn’t mean that I can’t see other things.
Ben distracting her leads her to getting a store front, so that she can concentrate. But not sure how that’s gonna work, because she’s right next door to a crossfit gym and they are LOUD.
It doesn’t matter though, because Maggie is determined. She sets up her store and heads home with the bestie. Yes, this store is a good idea. Time away from Ben is a good thing, right?
I mean not in my opinion, but whatevs.
Here’s the thing – when you’re trying to outrun fate, it’s not going to let you. It’s going to remind you, bitch I am here. Especially when you live like right upstairs from fate.
Ben and Maggie are trying to keep their past a secret, but it’s becoming harder, because the two of them keep letting little shit out. When Maggie and Louise are standing there talking to Jessie and Ben, he lets it slip that Maggie ran away half way through their reading. Sure Jessie knew that she had read Ben, but like lets not keep giving away all the stuff that ties Maggie and Ben together.
I know that you may be asking yourself why it is that I wouldn’t want that? Well, because I don’t want Ben holding anything about his and Jessie’s inevitable breakup over Maggie is not something that I want to or choose to allow in the universe.
Jessie invites Maggie and Louise to a housewarming party, which Maggie tries to get out of but Meg… she ain’t falling for that. Don’t threaten her with a good time and the possibility of getting a man.
What made me laugh about this whole situation is the awkwardness of it, but also Louise. She’s like legit a good time. She’s also not seeing the atrociousness of her hair, but that’s a different thing.
I think it makes Ben nervous to have Maggie around, but not because he’s worried she’ll tell about their past. It’s more because he really liked and cared about her. He wants to be with Maggie, even if he doesn’t realize how badly yet. But he also loves Jessie and knows that she’s good for him.
But, love and being in love are two different things. I don’t believe that Ben necessarily is in love with Jessie, because if he was, he wouldn’t be so worried about Maggie and Jessie being friends. He is doing everything that he can to disguise his feelings but all he is doing is showing them.
THE CROSSFIT GUY
So, do I want to see Maggie with someone else? No. But she has every right to date. Daniel is a dude that is at the crossfit place next to her and he sneaks in to avoid having to run stairs. He asks Maggie out and she hesitates for a second, but then lets down her guard and says of course and invites him to the party.
She’s already gone on a really bad blind date, this guy seems better. This guy seems like someone that she can trust, and I think after girls night it is best for her to have a buffer. Do I think that its good to use someone? No. But I also don’t think that Maggie sees it as using someone. I think that she genuinely wants to like someone.
Especially when she thinks that Ben is going to propose to Jessie. Only he doesn’t and it’s Dan that asks Amy. Seeing that moment made me believe in the best for love again.
Everyone may want answers from Maggie – Jessie included. She wants to know about Ben’s reading. She wants to know if there is a future. I do believe that Maggie wants to protect Jessie from heartache, which means that she likes her. I also think that it doesn’t make sense because Maggie doesn’t know Jessie.
But then there is that part of me that thinks, well, she’s just trying to be there for Ben. But am I supposed to respect the fact that she’s trying to be there for everyone by being dishonest? I am not saying tell Jessie everything, because unburdening yourself when it’s only going to hurt others, isn’t anything helpful.
The fact though that Ben asks her if they should tell, well what that says to me is he wanted to test to see how Maggie feels. It’s kinda funny when you are seeing both sides of something and you have to wonder – is this what has happened in my relationships and I just haven’t given people the benefit of the doubt?
Time will only tell.
- Maggies Mom cracks me up.
- I don’t like the blind date.
- Louise is too much sometimes and I have yet to decide if that is good or bad.
- Again, don’t like blind date guy.
- Parrot lady. I mean, is there no loyalty anywhere?
