When Danny starts to have as many "aha" moments as their so-called therapist, I think he might have a chance.
The shrink is just too much. He seems soooo fascinated by all of their dysfunction I think he forgets that he's the one who is supposed to be guiding and helping them.
Danny / Gretchen are in typical abuser / abusee roles. I don't know what is so difficult for the therapist to see that and expose it as such.
And yes, as becoming much more obvious, Gretchen is abusing her abuser. That was just really pathetic that she kept laughing hysterically at the melancholy poem/song she wrote on the mirror when she saw clearly that it hurt Danny.
Not that the words weren't true. Not that Danny doesn't deserve to hear it, but to present it as a Father's Day gift...especially in front of the kids??? Not a way to help out a faltering marriage. And definitely not very humane.
But, then, I'm sure her reasoning was that it was not anything as severe as what he's done to her.
Cycle of abuse. Fun, fun.
I guess that was the last show. Left me very sad.
