Brian asks Ally to move in with him, but torn between wanting marriage and wanting a more exciting man, she turns to her therapist for help. After meeting Larry Paul, a lawyer she mistakes as her old therapist's replacement, Ally concludes that he's an asshole, her and Brian's sex life is terrible, and now she can't get Larry off of her mind. Meanwhile John is defending a woman who wants an annulment because she doesn't think her husband found her attractive. Written by napierslogs
