  • Not the best episode ever, but deserves more credit than it's been given.

    All right, I wouldn't classify this one as best episode of the series. Or best episode of the season. Probably not even best episode that aired that month, but it was important. That's why I classified it as pivotal.

    I remember originally seeing this a very long time ago, and even at that young age knew it was an important one. Even then, I wasn't overly fond of the Geoffrey character--I knew that he was in the way of what was supposed to happen, so he bothered me. Now, I can respect him for what he was--a speedbump. And a catalyst to the relationship between Tony and Angela.

    While up to this point, it's been getting clearer and clearer that feelings exist between Tony and Angela, obviously, nothing is being done about it. Geoffrey proposing, and Tony and Angela's reactions to it, made it very clear to us that something deeper was brewing.

    Tony's overall attitude toward Geoffrey show that he wasn't fond of another man in her life, but he kept his mouth shut. Angela's waffling over her feelings for Geoffrey show that, despite her actions, she was never sure if this was it for her.

    Consider Tony's desperation to make sure Angela refused the proposal. And consider that Angela heeded his advice, in a matter that was, for all intents and purposes, not her housekeeper's business.

    Oh, this was a pivotal episode, all right. Not only did it get rid of Geoffrey and end that arc, but it showed us not only how much Tony and Angela respect each other's opinions, but how they, after less than three years, are nearly at the point where all they want out of life is each other.moreless
