Could you ask for a cuter spirit guide? Oscar was freakin' adorable on In Plain Sight this week, the perfect sidekick for Mary. Whether he's truly her spirit guide, however, is yet to be determined.
The question on "Girls, Interrupted?" Does Mary believe? Outwardly, the answer is no. But that loyal and lovable canine may be convincing her of things she thought impossible.
So, is the pooch showing Mary the perfect adoptive parents or is he simply not hungry enough to finish off all those files? I'm hoping Mary's new guide will persuade her to keep the baby.Not that I think adoption isn't a viable option, but I can see so many entertaining storylines taking place with Mary juggling motherhood and her career. Plus, we'll have the fun of pulling Brandi, Jinx and Marshall in as the child's extended family.
Having a career doesn't make Mary a bad mother. Heck, he more or less parents many of the people she places in WITSEC now. Parenting is a learn-as-you-go type of job. If Mary sets her mind to it, I'm sure she'd do great. Right now, though, I don't think she believes she's capable.
She has yet to give Mark a clue on his impending fatherhood. Somehow, I don't believe he's going to want to sign those adoption papers once he learns the truth. Besides, I don't see Mary giving up Oscar, nevermind her own child, but perhaps that's wishful thinking on my part.
Any idea what's up with Stan's avoidance of all things pregnancy related? He can't even say the word. It's very strange. And it's fun to see how little Marshall understands teenage girls, which led to my favorite line of the night:
Marshall: I told her that was out of the question.
Mary: Well that always works with teenagers, 'out of the question.' Next time maybe take 'over my dead body' out for a spin. | permalink
I'll give the snark factor a six this week. Mary's interactions with Carlos and the hippie family knocked it up a notch.
"Girls, Interrupted" certainly got Mary thinking. Am I the only one who thinks the adoption option isn't going to happen?
