All That's Left Is the Hugging

What the f*ck! The ending caught me off guard a bit. I'll get to that soon. As for the bulk of this episode, it was all about Amber and her seeking out advice on what to do regarding Ryan. I thought that common sense would prevail and that Amber listening to advice was more about trying to get people to agree with her that walking away was the smart play for her to do. So, when she comes back to confront Ryan I immediately assumed that she was finally going to severe ties with him and move on. Nope. She lays it out that she wants to marry him, have babies with him and be there for him in spite of his serious flaws. It's all for naught because unbeknownst to her, it had already re-enlisted as civilian life was and is not for him. Even though this is the best thing for her, even if she can't see it, I was really irked by Amber's blind devotion to the idea of getting married in spite of all the warning signs. Ugh. She can really p*ss me off at times.

I seriously don't like Julia anymore. Well, I have been getting more and more irritated with her the past few episodes for sure. But her hypocrisy in this one was the last straw. She is so fast to accused Joel about everything. That he isn't "there". So what does she do the moment Joel makes an effort and spends time with the family? She goes over to Ed's house to tell him in person to stop calling and emailing her which leads to them kissing. It wasn't a mistake. This is what she wanted. If it wasn't, then you send an email saying "not to call or email anymore". Hypocrite!

As for the ending, it's regarding Drew who spends the entire episode whining and moping about how the new girl he likes wants nothing more than booty calls (friends with benefits) and how he will try to change his way to fit into her lifestyle. This is the thing I have never liked about this character. He is too clingy and so willing to always make the change in order to get some chick to like him. He has no balls and is more of a girl than Amber is, which is saying a lot. So, the entire episode was about trying to change himself, when of course he is secretly wishing that the new girl will settle down and just be with him. This all becomes a moot point when his own girlfriend (can't remember her name at the moment) knocks on his door. Fade to black......

FYI, this episode was tailor-made for Mac with the amount of crying Amber does. It was wall-to-wall tears that I'm sure Mac would have been hugging and consoling his TV.  ;D Speaking of Amber or more specifically Mae Whitman who plays her, she's was probably exhausted with a migraine the size of Texas after shooting this episode. I would imagine she would be exhausted all the time, but definitely during this shoot for sure.
