Carla and Eddie are now in a relationship. Ever since Carla blew him the kiss and Eddie let in that cheap goal, Eddie has been on a slump. The most superstitious couple ever, Eddie and Carla analyze Eddie's life routine since the slump started, the only change in routine being Carla in his life. Not only does Carla come to the conclusion that she may be a jinx, but so does every one else in the bar. Carla has to decide to dump Eddie and have him regain his winning streak, or stay with Eddie at the price of the Bruins. Or is there another solution? Meanwhile, Diane is still at the trial and still talking to whoever will listen to her. Reminiscent of 12 Angry Men (1957), Diane stands alone in the jury as the dissenting voice thinking that the accused is guilty, comparing the relationship of the accused and his victim wife to Sam and herself. If she can't win in the court of law, she figures, out of a streak of good luck, that she can win outside the legal system. Written by Huggo

Never Love a Goalie: Part 2 (#5.17)
22 May 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Carla and Eddie are in a relationship but he is a horrible goalie now. Carla is sure she is jinxing him. To test it she breaks up with him to see how well he will do in his game of that night. Unfortunately for her he does greatly and wins. So from now on they have a break up before every of his games.

What a clever twist. As I said in my previous review I was sure they would break up. But instead this superstitious couple just breaks up before every game and then get back together. Good for Carla! The story about Diane's jury duty was pretty funny as well. Only I hope this guy really was guilty.
