I'm not sure there is any evidence to support that theory. What romance have we actually seen between her and Simon? What did she do that lead you to believe she forgave him for not telling her about Neil? Simon is an uneducated child-man. He's been going about finding love in all the wrong ways, but he at least seems to understand that now. Adriana? I'm still not sure what her deal is, but we'll learn more when we meet her husband. I think everything she is is a result of many layers of deception, most especially deceiving herself into thinking she's doing things she loves.
While Neil may know Grace more than she knows him, you cannot place blame for his actions on her. He has to own those just as Grace has to own her decision to turn away from Ray rather than plead her case about feeling unloved and unappreciated. In real life we would have expected Neil to go directly to her and freak the hell out. To tell this story, he had to do something different, but that doesn't mean Grace is at fault for his decision to test the waters as an escort. He could have confronted Grace and asked her WHY just like she could have asked him.
A note: "Screw you" was Grace's anger at Neil about what he knew as well as what she did. He kept saying she could tell him anything but if that was the case, then why didn't he confront her when he learned what she was doing? "You can say anything to me" when he can't say it himself doesn't speak well for either of them, does it?
One thing I think about Simon is that he wants to win Grace honestly. He wouldn't want to come up with a cunning plan of shooting himself, etc., because then he'd be doing what Neil has been -- lying to achieve something else with her. I have no idea what his call was, but I'm betting it will be far less sinister than it seems.
It was probably fear that Neil had been stewing on the news for a while and that he'd want her to get out. She really doesn't understand her husband at all. It would make sense she'd sense something completely wrong.
Dollars to donuts that gun wielding fella is a figment of someone's imagination. I just can't see this show going that way. Hope I'm not wrong.
She may seem self centered to you but you don't know what she's thinking as she makes these decisions. Her fantasy was informational. No voice overlay. We have not received that information from grace, but we have from Neil. That's why it's easier to see his side. This isn't a two way exploration. Not fully. We'll likely never know why Grace did what she did. Maybe that was season two. We have to intellectually try to determine her motivations since we don't get the benefit of her talking in her head or visiting gurus. It's not easy.
Invasion was about an alien invasion that took place in conjunction with a hurricane. The entire series was them dealing with the aftermath of the hurricane. It's how the aliens were able to come unnoticed. I know that series very well, but thanks for playing!
I think Adriana's offer threw him. When he realized that Grace probably knew that he knew, it would have to dig up all of his own transgressions. Neither of them are free from guilt and confessing all won't be easy for either of them. At first affairs and even just flirtations can be fun and energizing. Then when the reality of covering your tracks comes into focus, it's draining. Even not confessing to wanting more from your spouse or not being happy is draining. Imagine all this extra baggage. Yikes!

I think her thoughts also paralleled Grace's. Grace just wanted to be happy with her husband and she'll be relieved when everything with Simon is over and done.
