They Grow 'em Big in New Jersey

Hey all, sorry for the mysterious absence. In New Jersey, we had a hurricane to defend against over the weekend, and while it was quite mild compared to our expectations, that did not stop it from knocking out my power. Of course, there's still power at work. Thanks, work. (forced grin) So! What did I miss?

On Friday, Lu Ann looked mad enough to scald Margo's flesh with that hot water, but today, she's backing down. Typical Lu Ann. When push comes to shove, she can't bring herself to pull the trigger/pour the boiling hot water over her friend's head. That's an expression, right?

Yeah, LAUGH IT UP, New York. Okay, so we have some mosquitos. But you know when they aren't so bad? In September, which is when you'll get to your reunion. Does anyone think the introduction of bug spray here is a little over-expository? Like, now I'm going to be waiting the whole time for someone to say something offensive to Lu Ann and for her to squirt Bug Spray in his face.

Am I the only cynic who thinks this whole episode will turn out to be a dream of Lu Ann's starting when she was dozing in the tub? God, what freedom that gives the writers!

The bug spray foreshadows a Lyme Disease story line. Paul dies of Lyme...or chocolate, whichever, but he definitely dies.

Lu Ann finds herself questioning her commitment at the picnic, so Paul pushes Wally into a well in a desperate bid for Lu Ann's sympathy!

Really though, I don't see why this relationship isn't working out, besides the fact that Lu Ann has suddenly sprouted some independence, which I guess is possible?
