Ok...there was a moment in the live portion when Joanne and Maureen are carrying Mimi up the stairs and Roger says, “Noooo!” and the camera pulls in on him and I cannot watch it without cringing and laughing at the same time. It was like some kind of SNL sketch. I feel bad for laughing because clearly Roger was table-bound and all, but still...
Omg yes! I have spent the better part of the last few seasons watching and playing solitaire on my phone but this made me gasp and sit up and now my teenager is giving me a side eye.
Add me to the list of people who thought Thatcher was already dead.

But this ep made me like Toby and hate Toby. I think the actor did a great job and he and Chrissy Metz did a fantastic job showing how a couple in a miscarriage tends to grieve in a parallel way. They are tiptoeing around each other and don't want to upset the other. That was realistic to me.
BUT - when he broke out the "this happened to me too" I immediately noped because I VIVIDLY remember having that conversation with Mr Duckie a few months after my third miscarriage and SCREAMING about how it wasn't HIS body betraying him. I acknowledge it was his baby too but it is just not something a man can understand. Toby has grief. I get that. I wish HE had someone else he could talk to...a guy friend or whatever because at 12 hrs post-miscarriage it's kinda all about Kate right now.
But again...I could just be too close to the issue
Anyway...I loved the small moment between him and the UPS guy.
OH and I've had that breakdown moment with my mom both post kids and post m/c so I BAWLED when I realized it was Rebecca at the door. They both killed that moment.
They were changed. (In 2 spots, off the top of my head. The Officer actually says "STFD - slow the fuck down" and Bonnie says "Jesus H, Oz, turn on your radio."
As for the title, a "Come From Away" is a
