  • In the final episode until the World Series break, it sure delivered.

    In this episode of "Til Death", when Joy gets sick of Eddie's pile of wood in the garage, she decides to get rid of the pile. What happens is that he has a so - called "Wood Ultimatum" to follow. He has to build something before Joy gets home or the wood has to go. In the end, Eddie comes up making something with his wood pile. He makes a pig out of the wood and Joy makes something with the wood, saying that it has to go. The problem is that Eddie thinks he is losing his manliness without his pile. Overall, I think that this was also another classic episode. I enjoyed it a lot.moreless

    I liked this episode because it showed that she took something he really liked and it changed him. She saw what she did was wrong and she ended up bringing him a piece of wood she found in someones garbage can, to try and help him start his pile all over again, and even bought him a power tool to show off to Jeff. It showed that she really cared about him and his likes and dislikes. It showed how you have to bend in marriage, rather than break.moreless

    This is a really important episode in that you see Joy learning from Steph about how to deal with husbands. In most episodes you see that Joy and Eddie have been losing some of the "newness" in their 8000+ day marriage and almost stock in their ways of dealing with normal daily things within a marriage. When Joy goes over to return Steph's wooden pig that Eddie attempted to pass off as his own she gets insight on how to deal with men's strange habits of having something that they never use but dream of doing wonderful things with that never happens. Such things as Eddie having the huge wood pile although he had never done any wood working or had any ideas of what to do with it. After the conversation with Steph, Joy returns home not only with a piece of wood but also with a power tool and tells Eddie that she liked the man that she saw while he was wearing the work belt.moreless
