This episode was a good mix of strong emotional moments—wherein the characters let down their self-protective walls and show their true feelings to us and to each other—and fun, dork-centric comedic moments.

Sleaze says they’re locked in Marina’s filing cabinet, and even if they weren’t,... Continue Reading →
