Happy belated birthday @saber5055!
I thought that the art date was cute. I don’t think TPTB thought it would get so deep but I think since all the men are sequestered together more than normal this season that they let their walls down with each other. I thought it was so cute that Brendan sincerely complimented Riley after his speech. The date was a nice change of pace from the toxic-masculinity/literally pit the men against each other dates.
The show touched on BLM, addictions, and eating disorders in men in two episodes? Consider me to be partially impressed. Then the ‘drama’ between Noah and Bennet and I was back to meh-watching. I really wanted the book that Bennet gave to Noah to be a Staurt Smalley like book.(Cut to Bennet looking at the mirror. I’m good enough, I’m smart enough, and gosh darn it people like me).
