| Best Last Episode Season 2 - Ever!
"I don't trust you and you shouldn't trust each other but also must paradoxically work together; like in the Treasure of the Sierra Madre..."

I am obsessed with the finale of season two. It is brilliance. The story line, the expressions, the timing, watching the complexities as an explosion of dashing dreams, adjustability, transformations, fear-facing, fast thinking and faulty decision-making abound. Too many great lines to count.  "I am allergic to animals, how many cats do you have." "7!"  "He's not really one of us..."  "I'm not dying anymore?" "Not fast enough for Medicare!"  and the "You have many layers..." amazing line!  I believe one of the best season endings ever!  A total delight. Can be watched over and over again.  a few highlights: Laurie Metcalf and Mary Kay Place schoolgirl bantering passing notes is hilarious! A stark contrast to the meeting's subject matter. Alex Borstein's quick marriage overlooking everything practical and maybe even her own feelings. Niecy Nash throwing in the garbage can her one dream in a simple gesture. Mel Rodriguez' s many layers, one being a small scream while being interrogated to the disgust of the women. The hospital's unbending hierarchy on the hunt for scapegoats. And Mrs. Lee and her stressed daughter and exquisite grand daughter with an eye shot I will never forget. There isn't a wasted moment and gives a lesson in universal expressions, so unlike the usual botox blank look we are getting used to.  Thank God for a third season to come!

And oddly enough the song at the end gave me a very important and needed epiphany.
