    The baby is born and everyone except the kids knows that Eddy is the father. That's not going to end well.

    Katherine leaving her son to go cry at her Mom's seemed very out of character.

    I thought it was great when Maggie told the woman (nurse, midwife?) to shut up. Just one more reason to love Maggie.

    The stuff with Rome and Barbara's son seems very creepy.

    Since we know why Jon killed himself, I'm not sure I care enough about any of the characters to keep watching.

    I finally got around to watching the second episode. I ff'd through just about everything except scenes with Maggie in them. Can't stand Eddy and Theo, can't stand Rome, can take small doses of Regina and Deliah. Maggie and Gary are the only characters still worth watching.

    Will be interesting to see what's up with Maggie's Mom and the guy from the bar. While I don't really care about Mom at least it will mean more scenes for Maggie!

    Watching S2E2----hilarious that when the "psychic" went to the restaurant, Gary was the biggest skeptic (since the actor, James Roday, played Shaun Spencer a fake psychic detective for 8 years)

    I'm finding Theo (Eddie and Katherine's kid) more and more annoying each episode. Is the actor capable of expressing anything else than earnest innocence?

    I think I'm out. While I would love to have another nice drama to watch, this one seems to just manufacture the drama instead of just good storytelling. I watched half of last week's episode and gave up during the dinner with Maggie's mom - that was the last straw for me.

    And Theo is the most annoying kid on the planet. In fact, the other kid is not much better. I've come to actually dread the scenes with the kids and there are way too many of those scenes for a drama that's not really about kids.

    I'm hanging on by a thread. I FF though all of the kid crap. I think they really had no good plan for what to do after Jon's suicide was explained.

    I still don't really understand why he did that. It seemed like everything was shrouded in secrecy when it really didn't need to be. And it took so long to get to the point, I stopped caring.

    I think it was his guilt about not being on the 9/11 plane with his friend. He lived and his friend died. He never shared that with Delilah. Combined with the stress of the real estate deal it just got to be too much for him to handle. But yeah, they dropped the ball on it.

    I thought the show might continue with flashbacks this season with Jon to give us a better understanding of him and why he kept everything about 9/11 a secret. IMO that would be better than the crap this season has become.

    I dropped out in S1 when I realized that I disliked almost all of the characters/storylines. If the above is the whole reason that Jon killed himself I am super glad that I did. There would be no reason to slow walk that explanation; was it in the note/package that the admin hid?

    As the mystery brewed and I watched his friends and family, I thought he had killed himself because they mostly awful people and he was tired of being "the good one". I was not inclined to watch them build him up and then tear him down to their level, so I jumped. My wife watched the rest of S1, but has not watched an episode of S2 so she may be on the ledge as well.

    Wow---pretty emotional fall finale.

    Edit:
    Here's an interview with the creator on the finale and some hints for how things will shake out. Note---definite spoilers for the fall finale.
