Hi all - first time poster on this show. The show, while not totally depressing to me, seems darker, a little sad, and not as much fun as it's been at times.
At first I liked the way Carly put Shaun's friends "in their place" (if that's the correct term) when they were, what she thought, sticking their noses where they didn't belong. But then I wondered why she wouldn't be at least a tad glad that Shaun has friends who genuinely care about him, and have legitimate concern (after all he does have special needs), and not only that - if they care this much perhaps they can help? Maybe she doesn't want that, but I don't see why every exchange has to result in what seems like a put down by her.
In this episode, I got the feeling that "incomplete" meant that Shaun just doesn't trust Carly. When Shaun and Lea kissed (no, I don't want Shaun and Lea together, I feel that ship has sailed and I enjoy their friendship), I certainly got the impression that he wanted more, including the physical relationship. Shaun trusts Lea.
I actually liked Morgan in this episode*. Couldn't stand her when she first showed up but ever since last year's mid-season finale, I have gotten to like her more. I find her to be mean with some people, but not to Shaun, rather I see her as understanding, kind, patient and helpful to Shaun. Could it be? Could it? Given Morgan's complete disdain for sex and Shaun's discomfort with sex... . That, combined with their blunt honesty, they could really enjoy each other's company while not having sex together. Then, after a time, there could be, um, maybe... trust? Well, at least it could inject some much needed fun back into this show.**
