Watching this week's episode, I had a realization that made me respect the show's commitment to depicting subjective truths on a whole new level.

That dialogue was so rich and meaty and it's a big part of why I look forward to this show every week.

It felt as if we got a very clear picture of the two of them and all of their failings, both just a little bit afraid the other might want to give up on the other, even after all they had been through to get this far. It was beautifully moving.

The episode benefited from the jolt of energy and humor that Julia Goldani Telles, as Whitney, always supplies.
