On Murphy Brown Season 11 Episode 13, we get to learn Avery's fate in Kabul, while Murphy loses her mind with worry.
Being a control freak is hard, and it's even harder when you're a mom.
It was adorable that Murph was calling all of her friends in the middle of the night because she just didn't know what to do with herself.
I thought she was going to take Diana's head off before Miles stepped in the way. That would've been funny.
On Murphy Brown Season 11 Episode 12, I was commenting on how irritating Diana was, but we see her angle now.
She feels, like a lot of women in business feel, that's she's gotta be a bit** to get respect in her position.
Avery: Mom, is that a sweater on the dog?
Murphy: Benny was cold.
Permalink: Benny was cold. Added: December 20, 2018 She's not wrong. Women in leadership roles have to put on a tough exterior. If they don't, they're weak. The side effect of that fact is people think you're a hard-nosed bit**.

We now find out it's just for show, and she really just sees herself as a unicorn. When she connected with Miles on that level, you just knew sparks were going to fly -- and boy did they.
I don't think it's going to go anywhere serious, but maybe Diana won't be so insufferable to the crew now. At least maybe she'll stop busting Miles' balls so hard.
Then again, maybe Diana will stay Diana, but Miles won't mind as much. We'll have to see. It would work much better for the show if she were more part of the team, so maybe that's the eventual goal of the storyline.
Speaking of Miles, this was the second time we've seen Phyllis intimidate him with a look. He looks so confused when it happens that it makes me laugh every time.
Phyllis: Geez, you people! Okayyy, I'll have a party. But know that I'm doing this out of guilt and obligation.
Miles: Isn't obligation what holidays are all about?

He may very well work as a freelancer, tracking down sources for newsrooms. I don't know how that would play out on the show, but it definitely would be an underlying theme that Murphy would constantly lose her mind.

That nervous energy of hers would never let up. She is a mom, after all.
As always, it was good to have Jim on the show, and I'm glad they bring him on from time to time. He and Phyllis are pretty adorable together, and I like that Murphy has someone to look up to and admire aro..
