I'm a week behind with the eps. Forgive my late posts.
This one was a tear-jerker. But the medical professional in me couldn't stop wondering why Corey didn't look sicker. I know they couldn't force the actor to lose 30 pounds in a few weeks, but they could've done something with make up to give him a haggard appearance, or give him a limp because of joint aches, or something. Anything to make me believe he was that close to death's door. Unless there's an assisted suicide plot the show doesn't want to explore.
My scrooge-like opinions aside, Daniel Ezra knocked it out the park AGAIN. His dramatic scenes are always heart-wrenching and believable. I hope Hollywood is taking notice and gives this kid all of the opportunities he deserves once this show is over.
And yes. Olivia's art was great.
I wish Laura had someone to confide in--a friend or own therapist, for example. Because all I see her expressing to everyone is her anger -- to Billy (who deserves it), to her children, and even to the therapist. But there's got to be more going on inside of her: hurt, sadness, feelings of betrayal, feelings of embarrassment, feelings of insecurity. But I never see or hear her express any of those emotions.
