Happy Endings

Lone Star's James Wolk (far right) saddles up alongside Happy Endings' scene-stealing Adam Pally, whose Max is at long last getting some love from Cupid in a February episode of the ABC comedy.

"We finally meet one of Max's ex-boyfriends," says executive producer David Caspe of Wolk's three-episode arc. "They broke up on Valentine's Day and run into each on Valentine's Day this year."

Given the candles, carriage and crew of friends on the sidewalk, is the duo headed for a do-over? "They do start dating again," confirms Caspe, who says he isn't sure if Max is ready for romance. "He is such a weird character, it doesn't seem like he could function normally in a serious situation at all."
