February 15, 2007: Indecent Proposal Season 1, Episode 17

Nooooooooooooooooooo! I actually gasped out loud when Jack suggested he and Lynn get married. And when she said yes? No. No. No!! I was willing to go along with things when Lynn showed up after breaking Jack's heart. I was even willing to go along with things when we found out she was having another man's baby. But getting married? They are about to push me too far. I mean, I guess I can understand that Lynn and Jack are childhood sweethearts. And if Jack fell in love with Lynn in the first place, she must have redeeming qualities. I guess there isn't anything better than first love. Except maybe chocolate. But seriously. I'm having trouble here. Does anyone else feel like he should really be with Marin? I did get quite a bit of satisfaction out of the ring not fitting on her finger. Marin seems to be trying to move on, too. She's finally moving into her own place, even though Mr. Fix It is still there. Don't get me wrong, that man looks very nice without any clothes on. But who needs to be naked that often? I don't get it and neither does Marin. I liked her inviting Cash to stay after all, we know she's a big softie. And wasn't it convenient when Marin needed a shoulder to cry on - or more accurately, a pair of lips to kiss to comfort her during her time of need - and he was there? And boy, was she in need. Her reaction to finding out about Jack and Lynn's engagement was very emotional. I'd break out the liquor, too. But the best part was Marin's reaction to Cash the next morning when she told him she wasn't that kind of girl, and Cash didn't seem to believe her. "That kind of arrogance is not going to make you attractive to women." His response? "It worked on you." Ouch. And touché. Sara also seems to be moving on romantically, with her EMT partner Eric. I've heard they're a couple in the real world and I think that chemistry translates well on screen. It was nice to see Nicolas Lea play a nice guy for a change. He usually plays creepy roles who remembers him from The X-Files or Kyle XY? And the fact that he's a minister? That certainly seemed to throw Sara for a loop. I hope her confession to him about her former days as a working girl isn't related to the papers she was served. I'll be very mad at Pastor Eric if he sicced the law on her. Speaking of crimes and misdemeanors, Celia showing Patrick how to defend himself for his trip to New York was priceless. "You had me at the scrotum." Derek Richardson is such a refreshing breeze of comic relief. And who knew his and Annie's potential engagement party would turn out to be an intervention? It was a little rough there when Patrick admitted to her father that he and Annie were having sex before they really knew what was going on. And Jane making out with Annie's brother Danny? Shame on Jane for trying to move on from Plow Guy so quickly. She needs to heal, not go around kissing random guys. Both she and Marin had that in common this week. And Patrick, after making some blunders, seemed to be accepted into the family. As his soon-to-be father-in-law so aptly put it, any man who could convince his "drunk son to go to rehab is worth keeping in the family." Who wouldn't want Patrick in their family? Celia and Mai were classic this week. I usually enjoy their bickering, but it was nice to see them working together. Mai's wedding makeover was hilarious. Not only was Celia's up-'do atrocious, but Mai even thinking about bringing back the "traditional side-pony" was a crime against fashion. After Mai did charts for Annie and Patrick and discovered they might not be right for each other, I started to get a little worried. But they banded together and decided it was important for those two crazy kids to be happy. Yay. The only thing that would make me happier is if Marin and Jack end up together. And I know they will. Eventually. If you haven't had a chance to check out the informative Q&A with Jenny Bicks, go here. And although I don't enjoy Lynn, I think Justine Bateman is great. Check out her Q&A, featured in the magazine, here. show less
