'A Million Little Things' Season 3 Episode 2 Review: No more pals for Gary? Darcy may distance him from others
Eddie's accident might have changed his life completely, but it has also caused substantial ripples in the lives of his friends
Spoilers for 'A Million Little Things' Season 3 Episode 2 'Writings on the Wall'
In Episode 2 of 'A Million Little Things' Season 3, the new hot couple in town, Gary Mendez (James Roday Rodriguez) and Darcy Cooper (Floriana Lima) take the focus away from Eddie Saville (David Giuntoli) from the premiere episode. Eddie's accident might have changed his life completely, but it has also caused substantial ripples in the lives of his friends. Most importantly, Gary. In this episode, we catch up with the group roughly a month after they brought Eddie home and he exchanged his new vows with wife Katherine (Grace Park). Since then, everyone has been adapting to the new life. And Gary and Darcy might have had one too many arguments during that time.
In the latest episode, after Gary witnesses something at Eddie's house, he requests Darcy to help out. Katherine had returned to work with Theo for the day and Eddie was alone in the house. He had refused to take on a home carer. His wheelchair was away from him and so was his phone. He spends the whole day sitting on the armchair, eventually wetting himself. When Gary comes home, he helps Eddie out, but also now knows how he feels.
Later, he asks Darcy if she could help Eddie out with his physiotherapy. Darcy refuses, saying she never forgave him for cheating on Katherine. She reminded Gary about a time when Katherine wasn't eating or sleeping after finding out about the infidelity. And so she fully supports that Gary wants to help Eddie, but she won't be a part of it.
'A Million Little Things' returned with a pretty strong Season 3 premiere as it, for a change, added more intrigue to the plotline. This is largely owing to Eddie's mysterious past about a certain death. In doing so, the show opens up interesting personal avenues for him and everything stemming from him. It is also a matter of time that Eddie will take to the bottle again, we believe. It isn't unheard of for people to take to alcohol and/ or substance after their dreams and hearts are broken. As Eddie is at the center of 'A Million Little Things' universe, there is a drama and mystery.
Those not included in this universe the Howards. A month into their last heated discussion about adoption, Rome and Regina (Romany Malco and Christina Moses) are struggling to live their lives as before. Perhaps, life will never be the same for the two. After their adoption fiasco, the couple still holds anger and frustration against each other. They are also back to work but can't fully be present. Their domestic tensions keep them at a safe distance from Eddie's planet and perhaps that's for the best.
'A Million Little Things' airs on Thursdays at 10 pm ET /PT on ABC.
