Rome is taking the necessary steps toward getting himself the help that he needs.
On A Million Little Things Season 1 Episode 5, Rome sat down with Dr. Heller, spoke to his parents, and he chose to take anti-depressants. He's well on his way to helping himself.
Meanwhile, Gary came around to accepting Maggie's devastating decision to forego treatment. Eddie and Katherine called it quits, and Delilah found out some shocking news.
Join TV Fanatics Christine Orlando, Rachelle Lewis, and Jack Ori as they discuss an emotional hour.
Was there any part of you that hoped Eddie and Katherine could work things out after his grand gesture with the school play?
Christine: Winning Katherine back with one, big, grand gesture would be far too easy and unrealistic, not to mention that she deserves much more from Eddie. That said, I was almost rooting for it to work, not for Eddie’s sake, but for Theo’s. Instead of working on his marriage, Eddie made selfish choices that will impact Theo's life forever.
Rachelle: I never thought Eddie and Katherine would work things out. There has been too much damage for the years.
What I think the grand gesture showed was that, despite their differences, they can work together to co-parent Theo. Eddie knew that not only was it important for Katherine to not miss the play, but it was also important to Theo.
Jack: It wouldn't have been realistic if everything was perfect after the one grand gesture, but I was hoping for it to be a step towards reconciliation.
I loved Katherine questioning why she didn't feel she deserved more, but I also thought that maybe with marriage counseling (and individual counseling for both of them) they could eventually fully resolve the problems in their marriage.
Watch A Million Little Things Season 1 Episode 5 Online Will Gary be able to stand by Maggie even though he doesn't understand her decision? Do you think a part of Maggie is reconsidering things because of Gary?
Christine: I hope she’s reconsidering because she’s so young, and I want her to have a chance, but cancer treatments can completely take over your life. If she really feels like she doesn’t have much of a chance, I can understand her making the most of the time she has left.
I think Gary is far stronger than he believes, and he can be there for Maggie through this, no matter what she decides…but it’s going to hurt like hell if she doesn’t make it.
Rachelle: I don’t think Gary will be able to stand by Maggie if she doesn’t get treatment. He doesn’t understand her decision, he doesn’t agree with it, and he cares too much about losing her. I think for a little while, he can put his own feelings aside, but in the end, he won’t be able to stand by and watch her die.
