4. Dean goes on a date.

One aspect of the show I am not loving is the forced love triangle situation currently in bloom between Murphy, Max and Dean. Frankly, I don’t think Murphy should be in a relationship at all. She’s clearly not as invested as Max is and at this point she seems more suited to being on her own until she can figure out her own issues. She’s definitely too much to handle for someone like Dean.

Plus, I like their friendship. I hope it doesn’t move into romantic territory. Even the unrequited love thing is already getting irksome though. So I was happy to see Dean on a date with the bartender. They had good chemistry. Until, inevitably, Murphy interrupts. It’s for a good reason at least since she was just in a traumatizing situation.

3. Felix, Murphy and Jess get drunk together.

Visiting Felix while his uncle is in hospice care solely in the hopes of being able to touch said uncle’s face after he dies is probably the worst thing Murphy has done on the show so far. But I admit, I was touched by the her, Jess and Felix actually bonding and getting along, at least for a little while. We get to see how terrible Felix’s mother is. She constantly belittles all of Felix’s achievements and compares him to his brother.

It’s pretty hard to watch actually and even Murphy winds up defending Felix. He gets a chance to vent about how awful she is while sharing a bottle of wine. It’s nice while it lasts, which isn’t long, because then Felix hears them talking about their real agenda and kicks them out of his house.
