Satisfaction “…Through Resolution”

Nothing really gets resolved in this finale, does it? In fact, every story line ends on a cliffhanger. But all those “endings” offer so many possibilities for season 2.

Anika Signs With Bernard

That guy is so sleazy and I’m probably as upset with Anika as Mateo is. I didn’t realize that when their plans to tour fell through that it also marked the end of their relationship. So I was surprised when she went to Mateo’s to get all her stuff. And when Mateo showed up at her house, I’m glad he said something I’ve thought for a long time about Anika: She only likes to believe what she thinks is right. She needed to hear it because it’s true. I guess I like that she’s making an effort to chase after him – and possibly change her ways – but we’ll see if sticks.

Simon is an Heir to a Billion Dollar Fortune

I don’t think there was any way we could’ve seen this coming, and I like that. Simon’s “favor” is in the form of art appraiser/dealer who can move some rare paintings. They’ve been out of circulation for a while, but because the market can be fickle, it may take up to six months for Simon to see a seven-figure return on this investment. Simon doesn’t want to wait that long, so he takes the art to Adriana. It’s Adriana’s husband who assures her the art hasn’t been stolen because he knows who Simon’s family is. At the end of the day, will he even need the money? Grace seems to have made her choice. And who broke into his apartment?

Adriana’s Married?

Unfortunately, that wasn’t a big reveal because it was teased in the preview for this episode. It would’ve made a much bigger impact to discover this information when Neil did. But at the end of the day, it’s still a shock considering Adriana’s feelings about the institution. But what’s even more interesting (other than Henry Czerny,who plays her husband), is that he’s never around for long. He considers Adriana and his life with her a port, not a home. He’s usually away for years at a time and it seems like even though he’s never there, he’s completely up-to-date on Adriana’s life. Fisher certainly knows about Neil, and that makes Neil more determined than ever to end their association. I doubt she’ll give up, but I kind of love that there’s a lot we still don’t know about Adriana. Now that Neil’s rejected her, I wonder what new strategy she’ll try with him.

Neil and Grace Skip Out on Therapy

But for all the right reasons. Well, is that true? They still haven’t gotten to the root of their problems, but they’ve become so much better at communication. They’ve clearly decided they want to make their marriage work, which I’m happy about. We also find out Grace has been going to therapy on her own for 3 weeks, which is huge. She’s even told her therapist she wants to save her marriage, so at least we know she’s really committed. I don’t like that she allows Stephanie to convince her to snoop on Neil, but even that bodes well for their future because Grace discovers Neil’s been going to see a Zen master. And from him, Grace learns how much she still means to her husband. I love that she invites Neil to go to Milan with her. Things are looking pretty good for these two, except for…

Mallory’s Husband Shows up at the Truman Home with a Gun

I’m not quite sure what I think about this other than I don’t like it. I guess there have to be consequences for everything, but I’m not loving this one. Again, it’s a great way to propel this and every story forward in season 2, so I guess I’ll leave it at that.

Now all we need is a season 2 renewal from USA Network. What are they waiting for?

    I LOLd at the USA fakeout from the teasers where they over dubbed the line of “Get up” to “Get out” and it was a huge misdirect.
