Recap

How Do You Mend A Broken Heart?: Ray

With Ally gone, Ray is throwing out her things, deleting pics, and going to anger management ready for a fight. Not a physical altercation, just ready to battle wits since he’d really prefer to be anywhere but there.

A New Girl?: Mandy, Ray, Freddy

Being that Ray oftentimes only speaks to Freddy and has limited interactions with anyone who isn’t seeking their form of justice, it makes most of the people who work there seem unimportant. However, with Ray being single, lonely, and seemingly just looking for someone who gets him and doesn’t reject what has become a major part of his persona, Mandy catches his eye.

Now, who is Mandy? Well, she is a server at the club, and after a guy touches her bum, Ray steps in before security does. However, what may have really put her on Ray’s radar is her defending herself by smacking the guy with her serving tray. Meaning she isn’t above violence.

Things You Badly Want To Forget: Ally, Ray

While grocery shopping, Ray runs into Ally and with him seemingly wanting to talk to her, for whatever reason, he follows her. Leading to her dropping her basket and just high tailing it. An act that pushes Ray to realize she is truly done and perhaps scared of him.

Highlights

A New Love Interest?

Generally speaking, this show doesn’t say a person’s name that much. That’s why, at least for me, remembering many of the supporting characters is hard, and the guest stars aren’t worth it. However, Mandy’s name was said so much you have to think something is likely to happen with her.

Which, on the one hand, is a rather quick bounce back for Ray, yet considering he is genuinely a nice guy, just one in a rather rough profession, does that mean he shouldn’t get a quick bounce back? Though, who knows, as much as there are reasons to get hyped about Mandy, she could be the one who takes Ray down. It isn’t like he is going to be able to do what he does forever without consequence, and considering Freddy isn’t the brightest crayon in the box, you know sooner or later someone with wits about them is going to catch on.
