Yep. My first reaction when they decided to pause things was "so, is she going to hook up with Simon next episode, or are they going to wait for two". If/when she does, it will be interesting to see how they show it. Will it be shown as her being self-destructive and turning to relationships to avoid having to deal with other things? (it's kind of where I thought they were going in episode 2 when she called Max a 'grief vacation') Or will they try to show it as some romantic thing.
I wanted to yell at Max so much at that point. Like dude, she's dealing with the death of a father, helping her grieving mother, and just got a bunch of new responsibilities at work....and you want to make this all about you?!?
Skylar Astin is charming and I really want to like Max, but between his Nice Guy behavior last season and things like this, dude just is just fling up red flags all over the place!
I saw "attractive older man" and immediately wondered when they were going to start trying to put Maggie in a new relationship. Fortunately, he mentioned knowing her husband just died....but I also saw signs they might decide to go there.
I work on a pretty small team of 20 people within a smallish 200 person company. And even our team has an admin assistant to deal with all that kind of stuff for just our team, in addition to a team of office managers plus their team of hourly employees that deal with some of the bigger company wide stuff. There is no way they'd drop "getting signed up for softball league" on someone that is manager for multiple teams.
Same. I think she was just trying to figure out how to deal with her own feelings and Max coming at her like that, and then he started getting so pushy about it that she tried to get out of the situation...and instead it just escalated it. I think if she'd actually heard a song it would have been more of her going "I don't know the song, something about you being mad", not refusing to share any details about it.
That's been my thought the whole time with Simon. I actually rather like him, but right now he needs to deal with all this baggage he's been carrying around before jumping into another relationship. Like, having a supportive partner is good, but also girlfriend =/= therapist.
