'A Million Little Things' Season 4 Episode 9 Review: Moving forward with a smile
Episode 9 of Season 4 of 'A Million Little Things' hits you hard, but all in the right places. The episode focuses on learning to let go, taking accountability for actions, seeking forgiveness, and just holding your loved ones a little closer when it seems impossible to get out of bed.
Eddie's main line of focus is to help Rome through his depression, although the man himself is bound to a wheelchair after his accident. Regina is still ever so supportive of her husband, tending to his needs whilst also reaching out to an old friend to apologize to Valarie for giving up her job at the restaurant. Meanwhile, Katherine tracks down her high school best friend, Greta, in the hopes of coming to terms with some stuff in the past but also for having hurt her feelings. Read on to know how this episode unfolds.
Maggie is being blamed for the death of Justin, a client she took on for therapy a while back but had to switch therapists since the boy started developing feelings for her. Instead of reporting the same to her supervisor, backed by the fear that she'd lose her license to practice, Maggie keeps mum and refers Justin to another therapist, while she receives the silent treatment from him. During the ride to Justin's place to apologize to his mother, Gary is the one who she leans on for support. She opens up to him, realizing that although she isn't the reason for Justin's demise, apologizing to his mother would make her feel better.
As Rome's depression is back, he struggles to get out of bed. Regina informs Eddie about the same, who wheels in to brighten up his friend's day. He takes Rome around on his Uber rides, which is basically just an excuse to get him out of the house. They drive to an indoor swimming pool, complete with a Maui beach and fruity umbrella drinks set up, all planned by Sophie. Although this isn't exactly in accordance with Rome's visualization, Eddie does his best in the middle of winter in Boston.
Katherine visits a famous tattoo studio in the city, in the hopes of bumping into Greta Strobes. The two strike up a conversation and Katherine explains why she's really there; for forgiveness and not a tattoo. Katherine and Greta confess their feelings towards one another, something that's stayed since they met in middle school.
Season 4 of 'A Million Little Things' premiered on September 22, 2021.
