I thought she could tell he was being jealous and didn't want to deal with it. I thought her being all cagey about what was being sung was her lying. I thought either that, or she literally fell asleep for a few seconds. Honestly, I thought Max was coming off very bad all episode. He wanted her to be over it, and settle into a honeymoon with him, but that's not realistic under the circumstances, and also he was talking at her and wanting her to support him all the time, but he wasn't really paying any real attention or tuning in at all to where she was at until she'd explode-- either wake up gasping (and apparently he didn't notice she was having nightmares for a while), or some other major breakdown. And he was angry and accusing and jealous and honestly-- I thought he was acting like a total dick. You don't have to have been through it in order to realize it's something you need to learn to understand. A parent dying is not such an obscure thing that a partner can't be expected to be sensitive to it. It's fine if they want to break up rather than work it out, but I don't think it bodes well for a long term success if he can't deal with it in a less self-absorbed and pissy way, and she doesn't trust him enough to talk to him even though they've been best friends for years. -- As for the office, I have dealt with enough employees with the work ethic and emotional maturity of spoiled adolescents, that I'm not surprised, but I am thoroughly disgusted. That Hard Knock Life bullshit was really too much. As was breaking a window and buying erection uniforms and having a hard boiled egg bar, I mean... seriously? I don't see Joan putting up with a team this dysfunctional. I don't see how they got anything done before, for that matter. They won the watch project because supposedly they were competent programmers. They were always a bit fratty but they did used to actually work sometimes, and we didn't see major property destruction in season 1, so what the hell? Are we meant to think this is Zoey's fault for being a distracted manager? Because I think a team of adults ought to need a little less supervision and cattle-prodding than that. 5 Link to comment
