On Elizabeth’s last day in her home town, Carl knocks on her hotel room door and brings her breakfast.
You mean to tell me he’s been this supportive and
you are staying in separate rooms??
How patient do you think this man will be? For God’s sakes girl, roll in the hay with this hunk.
He’ll teach you all about the big O.
I guess it’s the last night for Donna’s visit – I’m not sure, the time lines are all bungled up, but she and George W. are having a cozy and intimate evening in. She has made some delicious finger foods and everything seems to be going well.
Donna is doing a great job of being relaxed and enjoying the moment.
And truth be told, it isn’t really her fault when the talk starts to turn serious. It is George W. who tells her he thinks she should stick around New Orleans for awhile after boot camp is over. She tries to keep things light and not talk about any big steps, but he asks what she’s thinking. So she admits that she’s scared with the immense possibilities, the pressure and the demands that could come from a long distance relationship (my words, not hers). She tells George W. she needs his help to overcome the fear that holds her back. Unfortunately, that has him stumbling over his words and saying “I don’t know” a whole lot. He gets flustered and tells her they are only three weeks into the relationship.
Dude, you started this conversation.
It’s daytime again and Corey has arrived at Daniel’s place to meet her mother. She’s nervous, because I think really she doesn’t want Corey to be there. She decides that it is too early for Corey to meet her son, which I applaud her for. I’m glad she still thinks about her little boy and is interested in protecting him, even when she can’t figure out how to protect her own heart. Anyway, Corey arrives and he’s looking might delicious in a fuchsia shirt that is a little too tight.
He brought flowers for Danielle and her mom. Class act.
Pretty much as soon as Corey arrives, Danielle whisks him out of the house, down the street and sits him on a bench and demands to know what he’s thinking. The poor sweet dear tells her that he thinks she could maybe be the missing piece in the puzzle that is his life.
That’s nice. Can I get back to you on that?
Danielle has already made up her mind to wallow in the pointless past, so she tells Corey she doesn’t see how it can work when they are in separate cities. Corey says he’s given that some thought and he’s prepared to create a schedule and commit to visiting each other on a regular basis. I’m impressed that he’s willing to do whatever it takes.
Kind of like what you told Kevin you would do to be together, stoopit girl.
She continues to indicate she doesn’t know and tells him that she’s taking things step by step now that boot camp is ending. She pretty much sounds like she’s saying she’ll be done with him when boot camp is over.
Way to waste his time, Danielle.
And so the time at home comes to an end. Here’s a few things I’ve learned:
Melissa asked Chris more than once how he liked Boston. He said he would never live there in the winter. My prediction:
If Chris doesn’t come to her pampered ass, they are history.
Partly due to her own choices and partly because it’s the way it should be until the time is right:
This will continue to be the only good man in Danielle’s life.
