I feel very bad that I feel like saying this, especially since it's one of the most iconic characters, but I am appalled with Marilyn's behaviour here. Before I've heard people talk about how she's been treating Raffy like a doll instead of an actual child and I wasn't so sure about it before, but now I get exactly what they mean. Her reaction to John's suggestion about the Morgans looking after Raffy was as if that was the most ridiculous thing in the world for a girl to be taken care of by her own family (two of them have actual medical experience and be very useful if something bad was to happen) just because she's being plain possessive. It's like she want's the Morgans to have nothing to do with Raffy and wants her all to herself. Are we suppose to feel sorry for her at the end? Her behaviour is rather odd and unhealthy and the sooner Raffy goes back to her actual family the better. It's good to see Raffy awake, but it's awful to see that she's not out of the woods yet. This is going to be a very hard long journey for her.
I felt a great amount of sympathy for Karen and Dean, but most of it was for Dean. Karen, despite me feeling sorry for her mental illness, was way out of line with what she did and said to Dean there. I'm glad he broke out of the control she had on him and, with Colby and Willow's help, gotten her the help she needs for her deteriorating state, as well as the fact that, as Slade pointed out, she's a danger to herself and others, so it's good to see she's now taken care of. Willow was a very good friend to Dean, but then again, she always is. The argument between Chelsea and Colby... I was conflicted. On one hand, I do agree with H&Alover that Colby has a more grey-ish outlook to life than Chelsea given his past, and while he's not perfect (then again who is?), he has shown himself, in my opinion, a good guy and less corrupt than previous before him. On the other though, Chelsea was pretty much in the right, and Colby's actions that night can't just be ignored. But still, I'm glad they got it past them and you've got to give it to Colby, he was honest with her and told her the truth, not just keep it hidden.
The blog stuff with Brody and Leah was nice, though I'm not too sure about her using the footage since, as Red says, it maybe would be a bit too personal. Maggie clearly isn't happy with all the extra work, but I guess she wants to just continue it to get a normal hold of her life after all she's been through. I understand that.
