harrietjulie21 asked: Did you suspect Jamie on 'A Mother's Son'?
I thought he did it but the way Alex chose to play Jamie. Made me really not want him to be the one who did it. It was like I was the mother.
I didn’t want it to be Jamie. That’s what you get when you play the character both creepy and vulnerable at the same time. Both seeming true of the character. Alex honestly drove the emotion of the series just by perfecting that art.
This made me laugh hysterically especially the way he said it.
Beautiful scene. This scene was beautiful.
Anonymous asked: Why do you guys think it's a good thing that he said "Bye" to Grace?? I hate that! I wish it was just to the audience. I totally understand needing to move on, but saying "Bye" sounds like he's healed and is just letting her go. It's only been like a year, many people move on but he should be holding on to some memory of her forever. "Bye" just sounded like a closed door to me. I know you'll have some argument against that, but honestly, a better word/sentence could have been chosen.
People have different preferences so no worries about my arguments. :)
I do though disagree. Like I said when I lost my friend the thing I said that got me out of my funk was just saying “okay…letting go.” Now even though I said “okay…letting go” and I am a functioning human being does not mean that I don’t have days where I miss my friend completely. There’s a difference between what is said and what it’s in our hearts. Grace isn’t going anywhere…but he needs to move on. He needs to stop talking to her on a regular basis. One year should be getting at the acceptance part of the grieving process. Plus “bye” was suppose to be symbolic for several different things.
He said goodbye in the pool with that kiss. The “bye” was just him accepting it.
However if your pissed and you wanted more. Then be angry. No one gets over losing someone though. Ever. No matter how put together the person is. No matter how perfect they may seem. Even if they fall in love again. Whatever it is. You never ever completely get over it. Rich will never fully get over it. But he can be happy and I think that is what they were trying to tell the audience. There’s hope for Rich and there’s a chance for him to be happy again. Not to say Grace is now in the back of his head and means nothing to him.
But I get needing something more and I will never knock you for that. That’s just little old me’s interpretation! :)
