“Gordon, I’ve been strange my entire life.”: Casey and Dan are without their pants! Jeremy doesn’t want to donate blood and Casey doesn’t have a plan so Dan tells Natalie who tells Dana about Gordon and Sally. This episode really brings to a head the big arc of this season that started all the way back in “Intellectual Property” where we meet Gordon. Everyone is pulling for Casey, which says a lot about both Casey and Gordon, but Dana doesn’t have all of the information. Casey is both worried about his image in Dana’s eyes and also hurting her in several different ways. Dana surprises everyone, including maybe herself, but staying with Gordon despite his dalliance. On her values scale she seems to be more interested in getting married and settling down, but she’s not seeing how much she’s compromising. Gordon already doesn’t like her job, and I doubt it’s going to give him the warm fuzzies to not have his wife by his side because she’s running a sports show. It’s an understandable decision, however, because I’m on the outside and can see the situation from the high ground (both an in-episode joke AND a Star Wars reference, teehee). When you’re in love and want something and someone so bad, it’s sometimes possible that you make the worst decisions, or at least ones that don’t really help you in the long run.
I love that no one cares that Jeremy doesn’t want to give blood, for me it’s totally the needles. I also love that Dan and Casey are without pants at least twice and need to walk through the entire office and do part of the show without their pants on. I love how Natalie immediately goes to tell Dana and Dan waits to tell Casey, but I also love that Dan later has second thoughts that he can’t take back. I forgot how very much I love Natalie and how this episode made me upset with Dana because I knew she deserved better. Not necessarily Casey, but at least someone who appreciated her more and understood how important her job was to her. I’ll cover the season finale tomorrow, likely, unless I get more Trek watched.
