  1. I certainly do feel an abundance of pride in Ethan for the way he handled the situation with his wife and his mom. His wife has been under the impression she’s deserving of sympathy and the right to continue to isolate Ethan from his mom under all circumstances until his late brother’s birthday.
    I hope Ethan can find some closure now that he’s had the opportunity to get the answers he needed to the many questions he had since childhood. At the end of the day, his patients were far too overprotective with their children. I also hope he finds forgiveness from within cause his parents meant well in the long run

  2. Good for Kim. BARRY IS SUCH A BORE. She lost it for him. It happens Ethan is just like his dad. No affection. His marriage is next if he doesn’t show a little more amotion.
