Watched this one the other day as I was working out. In short, it's the one where the Flying Man comes back to town and tries to get Marilyn back. It's also the one where Maggie starts to fall for Mike and they ALMOST kiss, then Mike pulls away saying he hadn't meant for anything to happen because of his illness and Maggie says she doesn't want a relationship.
The thing I LOVE about this show, is that how, at different points in your life you can get NEW thoughts and new lessons from this show that you didn't see before.
For example, when you watch the painful part with Maggie and Mike, you wonder, "Is love really just about Timing?" "Are our egos bigger than love?" After all, do you think Maggie REALLY didn't want a relationship with Mike? Or was that her own ego being bruised?
Why did Marilyn turn the Flying Man down again? Sure, she has a job and family in Cicely, but should that stand in the way of love?
What did the writers want us to see about love?, being along and rejection? After all, the title is, "On Your Own." Don't overlook that.
