The silent treatment
JARED: Hey! Hey, what’s up with you?
MICHAELA: I don’t want to talk about it.
JARED: Clearly. You didn’t say a word to me the whole way back. What’s going on?
MICHAELA: Why didn’t you come to the hangar when the plane came back? I’ll tell you why because I am a giant wrecking ball smashing into your life.
The plan going forward
MICHAELA: Let’s not sugarcoat this, Jay. We owe each other that. I’m gonna tell the Captain that I don’t want to work with you anymore.
JARED: What? No.
Jared and Michaela storyline vs. Grace and Danny
Fortunately, Jared’s brush with death has broken him out of his complacency despite Michaela wanting to avoid being the wrecking ball in his life. Their chemistry is so much stronger than Ben and Grace’s anyway, and it certainly trumps the awkward intimacy between Jared and Lourdes. Even the comment, “Not to kill the mood, but I’m ovulating,” (cf. 110.4) seems engineered specifically to kill the mood, and that intentional dissonance is appreciated. Technically, we should feel as sorry for Lourdes as we do for Danny, but the two situations almost seem purposefully opposite to give us both possibilities for couples disrupted by the missing five years.
