Hi fellow postersFirst let me be perfectly straight, I am not a psychologist or psychiatrist. I have a medical education which I currently use to suture up critical injuries. However, I do have some experience treating patients with varying forms of psychological difficulties. From what we have seen Grace doesn't have what I would call clinical depression. Grace was unhappy as a result of factors relating to her marriage and life choices. She had corrective alternatives available to her and yet consciously chose not to use them. The fact that she and her husband were suffering through a period of physical sexual deprivation was a responsibility for which both deserved equal blame. Grace could have insisted and yes, demanded more attention. Not just once when she was drunk and committed assault in a bar, but often in the intimate confines of their home. The second factor contributing to her unhappiness was her lack of professional accomplishment. For this she bears sole responsibility. She had ample opportunity because of the income status provided by her husband's efforts, to avail herself of domestic help and therefore freeing her time to pursue her career goals. She did not do this. She used her time to complain and blame, and yes self pity. Lack of personal motivation is not depression, it is laziness and complacency. Grace chose infidelity as a corrective action. She did so for a number of reasons. First, it gave her immediate sexual gratification. Secondly, it was with a handsome, young, stud. It made her feel young and desired. Thirdly, it was illicit, and thus gave her a sense of thrill and excitement in trying to avoid detection. In a fourth aspect, it gave her a captive audience to which she could complain about her condition, and always receive positive feedback agreeing with her. A fifth aspect to her infidelity was that it gave her an opening into exploration of her own sexuality in ways that she felt uncomfortable with Neil. For example, the wall banging sex of Episode 1. Grace's infidelities were much more about Grace than about the state of her marriage. Grace could have pursued her career objectives years before, yet she did not. The infidelity did not occur out of the blue. It rarely does. Grace probably had been fantasying about sex with others for a long time, yet she did not have the appropriate opportunity from her perspective. When it presented itself, Grace acted promptly. Grace felt comfortable with Simon for six months. She used that sexual happiness to boost her self confidence and pursue other objectives, including career. Grace changed her wardrobe and personal activities (nude posing) to fit her new found freedom. She flirts openly with others (Dylan). Her increased self worth has allowed her to reevaluate her capabilities. She feels independent (she doesn't need a man to support her). From Grace's personal perspective, the affair with Simon has been a greatly positive experience. It is only when Neil's condition changed that Grace found her routine challenged, This increased the probability of detection and thus created another instance of self evaluation. When Grace is told of Neil's knowledge of her betrayal, Grace's first instinct is to run. Why is simple, it allows her not to deal with her own treachery. Grace does not want to examine Grace. Grace chooses only forums which are self protective. Her psychologist has taken the role of marriage counselor, rather than examine the mental aberrations which caused her to cheat in the first place. Grace does not want to examine Grace, she wants only to find convenient and self promoting answers.
I loved this episode the show just keeps getting stronger and stronger each week. I love seeing Christian Kane in a different role than tough guy.
Since this wasn't exactly a Christmas story had I been in charge of scheduling I personally would not have used it for the Christmas episode. For the Christmas show I would have concentrated on the fact that it was Gibbs' first Christmas for several years without Jackson, with perhaps Abby concocting plans to ensure he not spend the holiday on his own; a reference to how Vance and his children are getting on facing their second Christmas without Jackie; Palmer reflecting on the fact that next Christmas he'll be a father, with perhaps a bit of a scare when Breena goes into labour early, Ducky has to deliver it and they unexpectedly find themselves with a Christmas baby and we discover that Gibbs has been spending his time making a crib; McGee talking about his father's big plans for the first Christmas in years with all the family including Sarah, Penny and McGee's mum and whether Delilah will be able to fly back to DC for the holidays; and of course Tony making sure that they all partake in the NCIS tradition watching "It's A Wonderful Life", perhaps in Breena's hospital room. I would then have scheduled McGee's letter as part of the first episode after the holidays, since not only was he referring to past events anyway but I might have felt more had I heard him excitedly discussing his Christmas holiday plans in the previous one.
Your episode would have been so much more uplifting and fun than the poor poor McGee Christmas episode. Why do the writers work so hard to give Gibbs and now McGee constant heavy handed drama?
OMG sound like a bad soap opera christmas I think I just lost my dinner
You know Michael there's nothing clever about being unpleasant. Many people liked the episode, others not so much. Christmas is a time when it's possible to get away with a plot that is a lot more whimsical than might be possible at other times of the year. Just look at all the Christmas movies. It's certainly a time for families, a time when families get together and a time when we remember those that have gone before, and that's all I was suggesting. If you think that's "soap" then so be it. At least I attempted to make a few positive suggestions rather than just posting a purely negative response.
Worst episode ever.
The Penguin - the most redeeming quality of this show. Why I tuned in this entire premier season! I'm going to check out Elementary...as these polls hope, to get new viewers to other series.
Elementary is great!
Back when Elementary was first announced, I was really hesitant. I already loved the BBC's Sherlock, and I didn't want to be disappointed by a cheap American knockoff. And I really wasn't sure about their casting of Lucy Liu as Watson. I'm very glad to say that they took my expectations and smacked them around with a singlestick. Elementary is a great series with its own unique take on the classic Conan Doyle stories.
I've watched Days almost from it's beginning and never have been bored with it until lately. Too many new, uninteresting characters,and poor writing of improbable happenings, T is fun, he should be used more. Plus I'm really sick of how nosy they all are, never hesitating to ask who is on the phone, or what's going on when it's none of the askers business , can't the writers figure out another way to find things out? Eve's.a bitch and looks like one, and not in a good way like Sammy or Teresa. She and Paige need to be gone. And to make JJ sleep with Eve is ridiculous, a kid his age would think she is an old woman, and anyone could see through her phoniness.
loved Christian Kane is this episode (all episodes really)!! He had some great lines in this one. This episode was the best one yet. and nobody can say no to Bruce Campbell!!
Been a DOOL junkie since close to the beginning-I remember Jen as a kiddie, as were Hope & Bo. I DON'T like this new group of kiddies on the show, & I dislike what games are being played with the John Black character. Not all the viewers are teens or 20 somethings, & those of us who have been watching the show since the current kiddie viewers were still a gleam in daddy's eye want to see the characters we know and love so well, not just Chad, Melanie, etc!
