It’s almost time for Rex to make his private life public, and of course, the news that there is a gay player manages to leak early to the press. It’s a little annoying that the writers never address who the leak is. Matt knows it isn’t him, and he even asks Noelle, who swears it isn’t her. This is just a little annoyance of the episode. The writers do a good job with this storyline overall. Rex never comes off as irrational in his fears. Unfortunately, Jim does not make a reappearance. A joint session with him and Rex would have been great. The presence of Glenn, the guy who schedules Rex’s interviews is not really necessary. He doesn’t add much to the situation. Perhaps he is just there to add a realistic element, meaning that in these situations people go out and hire people like Glenn. What did you think of the episode overall?
The standout moment of the episode is TK’s speech in the locker room where he claims to be the gay member of the team to protect and support Rex. His speech is fantastic. What’s really great is that the writers do show TK struggling with what to do after Rex asks him to be his ally. The writers just don’t have TK instantly be on board. It wouldn’t fit with his character. The writers handled this aspect very well, and it is a great moment for TK as a character. Hopefully if the show gets another season, the writers will continue to expand on TK and Rex’s friendship because at the end of this episode, they are definitely acting like friends. Did you love TK’s speech?
Ah yes, the love drama continues. Dani sort of makes her decision regarding her affections, and it is Matt. What a shock. Honestly it would have been nice to show more of Dani and Nico. If the writers really wanted the viewers to view him as a contender for Dani’s affections, there needed to be something more. It’s a little annoying that the writers throw in Nico’s job offer as sort of an ultimatum, even though Nico doesn’t treat it as such. Between the job offer drama and the reveal that Noelle is pregnant, there are just too many predictable complications thrown in the mix. The writers needed to take one of them out or maybe even both. What did you make of all the relationship drama?
