Spoilers ahead for Season 2 Episode 6 'Unleashed' of 'A Million Little Things'
The promos for episode six 'Unleashed' teased it all week — Maggie (Allison Miller) accidentally lets Colin out while on a phone call.
Colin is not only Gary's (James Roday) dog but also his best friend. Together, they have been through a lot, especially during Gary's cancer treatment.
The episode begins on a seemingly good day with Gary and Maggie out with Colin getting coffee. Gary asks her what she ended up doing last night since he went to the open piano night and couldn't find her there.
She says she was in her old apartment playing the piano but doesn't tell him anything about Eric (Jason Ritter). Gary heads upstairs and Maggie is charged with bringing Colin along. But a phone call from Eric distracts her and she frees him off his leash.
Colin is nowhere to be found. Gary's first reaction is confusion and then anger — with everything that is going on between Maggie and Gary, how is it that they have found themselves in this mess?
To find Colin, he first reaches out to Eddie (David Giuntoli), who is babysitting Charlie. But once Katherine (Grace Park) gets the news of a missing Colin, she drops everything at work and takes over looking after Charlie, another highlight of the episode.
Even Rome (Romany Malco) and Gina (Christina Moses) drop everything they're doing to help Gary look for Colin.
They also team up with PJ (Chandler Riggs) and Sophie (Lizzy Greene), who, by the end of the episode, are at two ends of a spectrum and it doesn't look like it'll go well. They split into teams and drive around to shelters, calling people and asking people on the streets.
The episode 'Unleashed' is exceptionally sad for those with pets — the thought of losing them like that and the possibility of never meeting them again is a real one. And even if the entire episode was a little over the top, Gary's pain and paranoia about Colin is one people are familiar with.
Colin is found — fine and healthy. But there is a new discovery — Eddie discovers that Colin is actually someone else's lost dog, who has been looking for him for a year — the same time that Gary found him.
When Maggie tells Gary about this, he is visibly distraught, no doubt since Colin has been with him through so much. He leaves the room saying that Colin must stay here, this is his home.
'A Million Little Things' airs on Thursdays at 9|8c on ABC.
