'A Million Little Things' Season 3 Episode 3: Darcy hates Eddie but fans hate her more, say she isn't 'genuine'
Darcy made it clear that she does not like Eddie and pointed out to Gary how she watched Katherine suffer at his hands when the truth about his infidelities was out
Eddie Saville (David Giuntoli) might be just back from the hospital paralyzed from the waist down after a deadly attack last season, but the drama doesn't stop following him. Now, the 'A Million Little Things' star, who has been on a redemptive arc since Season 1 already had new foes in Season 3. And no, we're not talking about Reverend Stewart (Gerard Plunkett), the old man who hit Eddie with the truck. We're talking about Darcy. Eddie's best friend Gary Mendez's (James Roday Rodriguez) new girlfriend Darcy (Floriana Lima) does not like him one bit. And in the new 'A Million Little Things' episode, we think there will be a showdown between Darcy and Eddie.
In the last episode, Darcy made it clear that she does not like Eddie. She pointed out to Gary how she watched Katherine suffer at his hands when the truth about his infidelities was out. She wasn't eating or sleeping or was at rest. After all this time, even after the couple has long reconciled, Darcy holds Eddie responsible. Gary was asking her to help Eddie with some physiotherapy. While she eventually came around to agreeing, it wasn't before she made her point clear.
This is not sitting well with fans though. "Does anyone else really hate Darcy?" asked a fan on Reddit. "I feel like I’m the only one here. It feels like she just came out of nowhere and just inserted herself in their lives. All of a sudden she was the only one there for Katherine when Eddie cheated on her and she was only one who helped her get over it. Oh come on. We saw Katherine at her mothers house, we saw Katharine with her friend at the law firm. Darcy was nowhere. I cannot wait until Maggie comes back from England and breaks them up."
The viewer added that her character seems to be for 'plot convenience'. "It doesn't feel genuine. While the main focus was on Eddie, we did see some of Katharine and Darcy was never there helping her like she claimed to be," adding that it would have made more sense to have her actually be "Katherine's friend who was overseas instead of someone she met at Theo's school," since she is already given that background.
In the promo for the new episode, Eddie tells Darcy that Katherine's given him a chance and so she should too. But will she?
'A Million Little Things' airs on Thursdays at 10 pm ET /PT on ABC.
