Debra Messing's character, Laura Diamond mentions Joe DiMaggio at the end of the episode as an answer in a crossword puzzle.

New Season, New Addition - Not Happy
7 November 2015 | by gjenevieveSee all my reviews

I really enjoyed the show last season. I was actually looking forward to season 2. I was excited when I saw that they had renewed the show for a second season.

However, for some reason, they decided to add Callie Thorne. Not happy about that. I do not like the character she plays. I do not think that character was necessary. I am really hoping that they either severely limit her appearances on the show or get rid of her altogether.

That being said, if they are insistent on keeping her around, I am sincerely praying that the stories are amazing to help offset that character being included in the show.
