Did You Know?


Frankie gets her first laptop & knows nothing about how to use one. She asks Grace about Nwabudike as a password, Grace says to pick something random. Frankie drags her hands across the keyboard & Grace says it needs to be something Frankie would remember. Now, assuming the cursor automatically went to the password field after she entered her name, then the random letters would have needed to be deleted. Instead, Frankie types sevenbongs. See more »

More Dating Craziness
23 June 2015 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Three entities come into play here. Grace is dating a bunch of very strange men. Brianna decides to get a dog so she can receive unconditional love. Frankie is still clinging to Sol. During one of her computer dates, a man from her past shows up. He is a writer who had been all over the world. They are immediately attracted to one another because they have each deprived themselves of some of the simple pleasure of life. Grace is overwhelmed by his incredible accomplishments and experiences. She has never read any of his books and is discussing this with Frankie, who informs her that one of his books involves a time when, to stay alive, he had to eat his partner. This is certainly a stunning set of events that is hard to get her arms around. There are some great pregnant pauses here that are hilarious. Meanwhile, Brianna has a quick thing with the rescue dog's owner. This happens after she is convinced that the new dog hates her. Once again, Sol and Frankie are conflicted, back to doing things they did when married, in this case, watching the National Spelling Championships. Hilarious episode.
