Let’s talk about recovering after losing your partner. There are two very important things that need to be done depending on your situation. The first is the person who doesn’t have all of these dependents around them. The first is moving on from your past relationship and getting into a new one. Technically, this is not necessary, but people often seek companionship. Ryan seemed to be on the right track. Things were going well with Simone, but we open with Ryan having some issues letting go of Janie. Wearing your wedding ring on a date with your new girlfriend that gets derailed after you call said girlfriend the wrong often leads to bad things. Well, Ryan has a choice to make. Simone wants Ryan to get rid of the ring and various other items in his home that remind them of Janie. At first, Ryan can’t do it and Simone leaves, but desperation hits and Ryan drives up to San Francisco to get Simone back. However, when Simone asks Ryan if this act was for her, or it was just an attempt to replace Janie, Ryan can’t give Simone the answer that she wants. This leaves Ryan alone in his home with a bunch of new furniture that Carrie had to go out and buy. Well, the first new relationship is a big step to take. You aren’t going to find the one right away. Especially if you thought you had the one and lost them. The other situation occurs when you have people who depend on you. More often than not, two parents will have very different roles in the lives of their children. Obviously, Anne isn’t the fun parent. When Mr. K has to step in and babysit for Anne, things take an unexpected turn. The kids like Mr. K and this reminds Anne that her kids also lost something. What Anne learns from Mr. K is that you have to try to cut loose every once in a while. Look to your inner child and the kids will appreciate the effort that you put forward. In both situations, we learn that no matter what the outcome is, we have to try to move forward. No matter what, progress is progress.
Current Opinion of the Show:
Things are going great. There was a lot that we should be able to take from this episode. That is what I love about this series. We learn a lot about life and ways to handle loss which is something that I am a big fan of. We are actually gaining something from this show, unlike other comedies which throw out mindless humor. Go On has been getting better and better every week and I know that I am not just speaking for myself when I say this. I can’t wait to see what Ryan does now that he is single again.
