    Re: 2/09 Show Discussion **spoilers**

    Naomi: the look on Jason's face while Naomi's mother was telling him how she knew Jason was one of "them"........and how sure she was that Jason was aware of previous lives, etc. It was too funny watching him try not to be disagreeable, yet not totally agree with her...


    Jillian: What a fun and upbeat person. She's so pretty too. But is Jason really crazy about her?

    Melissa: I love Melissa, but she has a lot of issues to work out before having a healthy relationship. One bad relationship can destroy a person's self worth completely. She needs a lot of professional counseling to rise above the apparent abuse she's endured.

    Molly: I still haven't warmed up to her since the beginnig of the season. What was with all those hats? Did I miss the meaning of the "hat dress up"?


    So Deanna is trying to throw a wrench into Jason's finally?

    Well, she did say she was the black sheep of the family. Just like Marilyn Munster.
    Is it too much to ask for some reality in reality TV?

The one friend (Stefanie) had met them only one time when they were in college? And can't really remember what Melissa's dad is like? Jason needs to think long and hard about that before he jumps into something with her based on their "connection" and chemistry.
    Where did Melissa go to college? Was it in Dallas? The reason being it's not odd for college friends not to know the parents of their friends. I know several "normal" families that don't travel to college to see their kids (they just see them when they come home) and therefore never meet a lot of their friends. Once kids are in college many times that life is separate. I didn't get the impression that these were friends before college life, but maybe I missed something.

    There is something really weird going on about Melissa--she's been in abusive dating reltionships? More than one?

    This is waaay more troubling than the openly New Agey Namoi mohter.


    Many women who end up in more than one abusive relationship have serious problems that are not "fixed" by just marrying a non-abusive guy.
    Good points.

    Plus, they don't just turn around on a dime and suddenly develop a long-term attachment to a guy who's a big-time nurturer.

    I can see Jason being attracted to Melissa through his savior-white-knight-nurturing-guy side and Melissa clinging to him briefly, partly because she kind of wants rescue and partly because the whole tv-show thing is a rush (not dissimilar to the rush she may get from bad boys).... and then, very shortly, I can see Melissa suddenly realizing that she's "not in love" with Jason after all because he never gives her the adrenalin pump that the man's-man/kinda abusive boyfriends have.

    Not a pretty picture.

    Jason, did they teach you nothing in those psych classes?

That is just weird. I don't see how Melissa can survive moving cross country to move into an all new ready-made family with such unusual social interactions.
    It's not really weird. My Mom never knew my best friend at all. They spoke so rarely and I grew up in a small town (1,200 people). It had more to do with my Mom and her inability to socialize than with who my friend was. It took every ounce of courage my Mother possessed to come to my wedding. My Dad had a third grade education and just preferred not to converse with my friends for fear of embarassing me. I can understand Melissa's parents. I'm sure there are reasons why they chose not to participate in much of her life. But growing up with it, you get use to it.

    If I were Jason I'd pick Jillian. She is falling for him, she seems so sweet, nice, cool and her family is a hoot. Her parents stayed together throughout the ups and downs of her mom's depression, they would be good for counseling Jason and Jillian if they were to become a couple.

    I think this is normal for the little boy to say this, I've heard kids say this before (not often) about other pets, animals dying.

    Good for them!

    Maybe they also think she shouldn't get involved with a divorced man with a child. Melissa is 24 or 25, still very young.

    I do not think Jason will pick Melissa if he cannot meet her parents, he said something like this. Something is wrong, her closet friends have only met her parents only once or twice, these are childhood friends. Weird.

They are either really unable to support their child or their is something that needs to be covered up. Either way, I think Jason needs to figure out what it is. Someone just mentioned that her comment about needing to share something with Jason is from the NZ date. Wonder if she clarifies the family issues with him...
    She should clarify the family issues if she wants a real relationship with Jason, if she doesn't she's going bye bye.
