I like Marius, too--although for someone who "doesn't get attached," he gets awfully attached. There were several points he could have cut his losses and taken off, but stayed to help. I think in a lot of cases, the money was just an excuse. Even the season 1 arc wasn't just about getting away from Vance, it was also about vengeance for his dead friend. And this season he seemed more attached to Maggie and Pete's family than they did. (Well, maybe not Pete. But Mommy's more important to him than anyone else.)
I am so glad I'm not alone in not liking or being interested in Maggie. What exactly was Audrey supposed to apologize for? I mean, I figured Maggie owed an apology for stealing money and running away with her criminal boyfriend, but what did Audrey do? Did I miss something? Or was it just not believing in all of Maggie's visions? Because Maggie herself sort of admitted that she fakes it at times.
As for Julia, I figured season 3 would start with Marius giving his "I want to be part of the family" spiel, and Julia'd listen and then drop the bomb--either in front of the group, or one-on-one with him, that she'd talked to the probation officer. Because I assumed the whole point of that cliffhanger conversation with the parole officer was that he'd tell her the truth about Marius. Whether or not she believes it, is another thing, I guess, but . . .
