So, color me disappointed if that’s going to be all she wrote for Cassidy’s character. I thought the character was great and complements Kevin well platonically or romantically, so it would be a huge waste if all she does is kinda sorta facilitate Kevin getting to know Nicky better. Hopefully she can show up in a larger role in the latter half of the season that isn’t an idiotic “Upper 30s to 40s career woman who was deployed in a combat zone up until a few months ago apparently wasn’t on long term birth control” plot.
I really couldn’t care less about Deja and Malik. By any reasonable metric, but especially the one where Deja’s father is a politician, allowing their relationship to continue is a Terrible Idea.
It feels like we’ve been going one step forward, two steps back with Kate and Toby all season long, and this episode was no different. Feels like we’ve been going around the “Conflict ensues, Kate acts like a dick, realizes she’s being a dick and apologizes” cycle a few times now and it’s frustrating that she doesn’t seem to be learning or growing any.
Randall was way overstepping his boundaries with Rebecca in the job interview plot. And while not all dementia is Alzheimer’s, I’m pretty sure that’s all we could expect Hollywood writers to have heard of.
