OK so far I have not seen Dani go through the grief stage after the divorce. There hasn’t been the time. They have been introducing the characters and foundation building and there are far fewer episodes on cable. But I think it has to happen. She is a very strong woman but we all need a good cry at one time or another. Get it out of the way and move forward.
The way I see it she has the week from hell. Everything goes wrong. Her son is back to sneaking around, her daughter has a hissy at hearing no and writes awful things about mom on face book and they both go spend time with dad, the cool one. Her mother backslides and calls her to fill her in on how wonderful her ex is doing, work is great and he has a hot female on his arm. The icing on the cake is the coach threatening to have her fired because one of the new problem players (the owners new favorite) is getting into trouble and Dani hasn’t fixed him yet. If his antics get into the press things will get ugly. Matt only does a half hearted job of defending her efforts. And as she leaves the office Nico doesn’t say anything, just crosses his arms and gives her that look. Just like when she first started with the team and he thought her job was a lot of hogwash..
She gets home and picks up the phone to call her girl friend so she can vent and have her girl friend say something funny like she always does make her laugh….But…. She is gone. Then it all hits her, she is alone. And she starts crying……
We all know there are things you tell your girl friend that you would never tell your husband. It can be like a divorce to lose a best girl friend.
At midnight Nico calls about the problem player but Dani mumbles something and hangs up. He tries a few more times but she isn’t picking up. So he goes to her house. The place is dark, her car is there and he can hear her phone ringing when he dials. He suddenly has a bad feeling and punches out a window to open the door. (He could have picked the lock, we all know he has the skills, but it would take too long.)
He finds her curled up on her bedroom floor, crying. This is not the strong lady he knows. Now he’s on the floor with her in his arms. He realizes she isn’t hurt but sad and he is at a loss. He fixes things not people and asks who he can call for her…….. “No one, I have no one. I’m all alone”…….. He has no idea tomorrow she will be better and back to her fighting ways. She just needs a real good cry.
How do you think it should go from here?
I see him saying “You have me”.....
