Ditto for me. I was thinking they (TPTB) were going to wrap things up in a semi-tidy way, but now it seems things are headed for major meltdowns for everyone involved. I can’t see Nate and Brenda splitting up again, and especially at this point, and him hooking up with Maggie. That seems so wrong and out-of-character. I’d hate to see that happen.
Claire’s going to be stuck in a dead-end job she hates, too much like Office Space. Last week when her cubicle mate had the radio on, and asked Claire if it was too loud, I was half-expecting her to say, “I was told I could listen to the radio at a reasonable volume.”
David and Keith are going to be stuck with the rotten kids, although it seemed Durrell warmed up some when they said they liked his performance in the school play.
I think one of the major characters (or a minor character) is going to kick it in a coming episode. They’ve had Nate’s friend from high school, Ruth’s friend, and then Maggie’s friend from church. The deaths are hitting close to home, and I think the writers are setting us up for a Big Death at the end.
I’m thinking Billy, but that seems too obvious.
