CBS (ended 2013)
|It was cute and all what Danny said was beautiful, but still that: "I can be the man you want me to be" makes me think of a not so bright future ahead. He can be it but he is not? He can be it to do the right thing? I think he loves Lindsay, but I don't think he would have married her yet not being because of the baby. Granted everyone has doubts before taking such a huge step, and that no one is pointing a gun at him, but I don't think his inner struggle between being himself and being the man, friend, husband, father, colleage... others want him to be is gonna be solved with this marriage.|
|I dunno...you don't think that maybe it's not only all these people who want him to be that man, maybe it's himself too?|
|what I DO remember most from this episode was that Danny was terrified of letting Lindsay down, of disappointing her. If there's anyone who doesn't want him to be the guy who would let her down, it's him, more than it is his colleagues and whoever else.|
|The problem seems more with getting Lindsay to believe that he IS that person - the struggle seems to be that she might never actually believe that.|
|TPTB know they need to keep the show primarily about solving crimes and not make it into a soap opera, so I doubt they will make D/L and their marital stuff too big of an issue.|
WOW Really great discussions guys.... Rhylee M&Ms coming your way THANK YOU! *off to see if I can find it on ITunes*
Now, if my two cents is worth anything. As a wife, I think my biggest fear EVER is disappointing my hubby. D&L have had a rocky road for awhile and I honestly don't think Lindsay wants him to change. She fell in love with him as he was. Danny maybe think he needs to, maybe in efforts to not lose, hurt or disappoint her again. Honestly, I'm thinking that maybe a self-confidence issue within Danny. That he needs to change and be better in order to feel like he deserves Lindsay and the baby. ( I know I've been there ). But I think ultimately, Lindsay will reassure him and he'll learn that he's loved just the way he is. As Lindsay told him, it's not just about them as a couple, they both need to learn to share their life with each and a child which every "commited" person learns if the relationship is going to be successful. Women tend to be better at it because we tend to be the nurturers. I don't think the road will be easy and of course there will be challenges but I think as long as they want to make it work and love each they can resolve and/or compromise with whatever comes their way..

Everyone messes up in relationsips, everyone disappoints their partner at some point, even TV couples!! Lindsay didn't cheat on Danny but she did push him away at first. They've already encountered difficulties and they made it through. I hate to compare them to Ross and Rachel, but I think they're destined to be together in this show. Neither could be with anyone else and be truly happy.
