Right now, in a strange way, they need each other. They've developed a friendship as they have gone through things together. She definitely did not choose to be portrayed a la Jessica Simpson by the reality people. Not much she can do to change that.
Will obviously cares about her as a friend. I think they will take care of each other. At least hope so.

Yes but she also knows she'd decimate Will if she left him now just from speculation alone, and she could have outed him but didn't.
I used to hate her as a character but I have a lot of empathy for her now. I like their new, mutually-supportive relationship.

I REALLY don't think she would... but I think he would. It becomes more of the awkward "will she believe me" thing where she risks the friendship either way. I think he really does love Rayna - you could see when he teared up at her last speech - but they are both such big personalities, that I don't think they make a "whole is greater than the sum of the parts" thing. I think it's the opposite and they cannibalize on each other's space.

Oh, and my other favorite moment: when Avery said that we're not our parents, you're not ___, and I'm not a judgemental, unforgiving jerk and as soon as he said it he realized he was. She didn't have to say a word. LOVED LOVED LOVED that moment.

I don't know about you, but I kept picking up on Luke admiring Sadie in a way that made me uncomfortable, i.e. the drunker and angrier he got, the more he looked at her like a conquest. If he gets drunk and angry again, he might just try to do something with her, and I don't think Sadie would participate, putting her in the situation of "do I tell my mentor her fiance is an ass, or keep to myself". Did anyone else pick up on that?

And that was just last & this season! Season 1 they did it in Atlanta, and have done it at least once since then before this. But - imagine if it started to rain while they were in the middle of the herd? Didn't that happen one of the times - I think in Atlanta?

Just want to say that if I ever am stuck in the Z.A., I want Miranda by my side b/c she's got guts. No pun intended ;)

Question - I'm not sure if I saw it here in the reviews (I assume), but where did it first come out that someone would die this season? Cuz we're running out of episodes and that would be a sh**ty way to end the season! We need to see Braverman healing time! I recall us having a "death watch" each of the first 3 or 4 episodes but no longer. I'm nervous!!!

Divorces take a year usually or more. Joel was living in his own place, and they were legally separated.
FWIW, I met my husband (of 7 years now, and we have a 5 YO son) 9 years ago while he was separated. He'd had his own apartment for 9 months and they were in divorce proceedings. Much like Joel and Julia (except that they were well-past salvage by that point and did not have children like Joel and Julia).
Despite that, I still hope they work on it.
"I'm not slut shaming, but..." well - isnt' it kind of that?
Not to pick - I really don't mean to - but it really came across that way. YES, I think it was a girl! Interesting.

I took it the same way you did. As in, he's trying to stay the night and she kicks him out.
The elevator scene was heartbreaking.
I am SO angry at Joel. But I still want them together. The comment in the review about "over a year of darkness" - if you ask anyone who has been married 10, 25, 50 years, I am pretty sure they would say they had more than a year of "darkness".
If they commit to each other then they will be stronger for it in the end, somehow.
