    Cookie just got out of a stretch in prison but he still had the palatial pad with the electric gate? Crime pays.

    Unfortunately yes, that's a thing.

    He probably had feelings over the years and maybe even felt something move in his pants when the kid laid his head on his lap when they were laying on the couch watching tv in the previous episode.

    This is a thing that bugs me about this show (and many others). All these people know what Ray does for a living, and they all know he's great at it. Whenever anybody has a problem, he's the first guy they call. But then any time he tries to tell anyone anything, they act like he doesn't know what he's talking about. I know people can be stupid, and I suppose maybe the kind of people that need the services a person like Ray provides maybe tend to be a little stupider than the norm. But it still seems silly, and it always takes me out of the show.

    Plus, Bunchie is so screwed up in his head, I'm not sure he even knows what his feelings are.

    I think that's exactly it. He wants to be "normal" but he has a ton of dysfunction. He is confused. He is afraid to discover that he is different. He is afraid of being gay. he is afraid of being a child molester...etc.

    As for the feeling in his pants when the kid slept on his lap (different poster made that comment); recall that he had just taken a viagra...

    Yeah, and I think that was his reluctance to go into the bathroom and help the kid. It's not that he's attracted to little boys. It's that he's scared that he might find out that he's attracted to little boys.

    Well, I agree, but I'm not sure we really know yet. I do think that Bunchie is confused and there's a lot of dysfunction. And, it is pretty well documented that some who've been abused also become abusers.

    I thought Bunchie was just scared too, except when he said to his 'date/girlfriend'....something about " did you ever really want to do something and know that if you did it, it would be wrong or that you knew you should really try to stop yourself from doing it"??

    I know that's not exactly what he said, but I think it captures it. When he said that, then I did start wondering whether he might really be attracted to the kid. Before that I just thought he was afraid he might be or that it reminded him too much of his situation

    I think it will be interesting how this all plays out.....

    Well, Viagra doesn't cause that "feeling", it affects the blood flow that maintains it.

    Agree with everything you said here. We don't know for sure what's going on with Bunchie. My point was that I don't think Bunchie knows for sure, either.

    I think in TV land, you take one and you get an erection...just like every pregnant woman gets morning sickness...I didn't read any more into it than that...

    i dont see a season 2 thread but i'm sure glad what happened to cookie. the accents are bothering me more in this season. unsure if its because they arent good or what.

    it must be maddening with ray having all these bosses but the season finale was good with ray giving one hell of a storm around town. pulling all the stops out.
