Spoilers for Season 2 Episode 11 of 'A Million Little Things' titled 'We're the Howards' 

As Rome and Regina Howard (Romany Malco and Christina Moses) continue working on their adoption process, their friends are facing struggles of their own. Eddie Saville (David Giuntoli) faces a professional roadblock, at the same time, Theo (Tristan Byon) has been facing troubles and might be in need of therapy, tensions between Gary Mendez (James Roday) and Maggie Bloom (Allison Miller) are on the rise and somewhere in between that, she kisses Eric (Jason Ritter). And Sophie (Lizzy Greene) still refuses to give her mother Delilah Dixon (Stephanie Szostak) a chance to talk. 


Even though it has been a while, fans think Sophie's distance from her mother is justified. If anything, they are enjoying how much Delilah is suffering at the hands of Sophie. "Writers trying hard to make Deliliah likeable with her dancing to “Who let the dogs out” AINT GONNA WORK FOR ME DJ!" a viewer said aiming at the show creator DJ Nash. 

"Through that entire scene, my reaction was just “ick!!”. It was awkwardly acted and sloppily written. Not her character at all. Plus, Delilah would need to singlehandedly clean up ALL the plastic from that huge dead patch of the ocean before I would not hate her," concurred another viewer.

Elsewhere, Gary's poorly thought-out and even poorly executed plans have his fans worried for his sanity. "I don’t know if I like where they’re going with Gary’s character," expressed a fan. "I don't either but I think it is realistic, especially when you consider that Gary likely has some unresolved abandonment issues from his mom leaving and fought so hard to keep Maggie alive. Of course, he would struggle with the split," said another viewer. 


Gary has been spiraling ever since his break up with Maggie. He has been acting very much unlike himself, which has also started to irk some fans. "Here’s my hot take: Gary is the Ross of “a million little things.” I get the feeling the writers want viewers to root for him but he is the WORST. Just an entitled, selfish jerk. This ends this week’s edition of “strong opinions that no one asked for."

Fans are also busy theorising how much Eric is hiding from Maggie. "It honestly seems like it's just about the wrongful death suit against him from Chloe's family. I still think she received the heart; I think he caused the accident that killed her, although likely by accident, and her family took it out on him."


We expect to know more about Eric's past and his involvement in his fiance's death (if she is really dead at all) next week. 

'A Million Little Things' airs on Thursdays on ABC at 10/ 9c.
