Season 2 Episode 9
After having sex, Susannah bolts from bed to organize Gary's spice rack and he follows, bemused. They talk and she's obviously determined to keep their own spaces separate and sacred. Hope helps Nancy out by taking Ethan and Britty off her hands, as Jack Bronson the publisher has called back and wants to talk to Nancy about her book. Susannah and Gary have settled into a relationship, though she is still very determined at times about keeping her own space. She seems to be living at his place most of the time despite this. As Gary is fixing dinner for her, he tries to help her relax after a rough day, first with a neck rub and then by washing her hair, which he has to dare her into, but it works and they end up having sex again. The meeting with the publisher goes well, but the higher-ups want to see three more illustrations by the end of next week in order to consider the book for the Christmas list. Nancy says no problem, but she's obviously still pondering it. Gary comes home from work to find Susannah making dinner and off-handedly announcing that she's pregnant, but is going to take care of the matter so he doesn't have to worry about it. Gary numbly goes along with it, still too stunned to know how to respond to such a matter of fact statement.
