I saw last season in bits and pieces, not necessarily in order, but as near as I can tell: Ruth was getting on George a lot for not being forthcoming with his past. This was causing a lot of tension between the two of them. George took Ruth to an office party, where she overheard an ex-gf talking about what a cad George had been to her. Ruth confronted him, he gave the typical aloof George response. She began stewing and snapping at him.
And here’s where I may be leaving some stuff out, but as near as I can tell, one night, Ruth woke up, and George was sleeping in the bomb shelter/cellar area of the house (Not sure what it really was), and pretty much told her that was where he lived now. Something sent his little boat over the waterfall, and I think that may have been how last season ended-- just a little glimpse of the crazy.
I could be wrong, but I think the first show of this season had him getting diagnosed and treated.
Thoughts on the new ep:
[ul]I’m really starting to dislike Ruth. I know she’s frustrated that George didn’t disclose his illness before they got married, but damn! Have a little compassion. I guess she may have been falling out of love with him before he got sick, and now she just feels trapped. She’s just pissing me off, though.[/ul]
[ul]Two guys walk into a bar…one of them is Nate Fischer…and he’s the normal one! Go figure.[/ul]
[ul]I really don’t think we’ve heard the last of Claire’s eggs. They teased to that the previous week, so I don’t see how this couldn’t come into play somehow this season. Why would they make us pay attention to that aspect of the Keith-David baby-making story via the teaser, and just have her so ‘No Thanks’ and then drop it. Maybe I’m wrong.
