I know I've got no emotional distance from this episode because I identify strongly with Matt's family situation and emotions, but ... wow! I was expecting something MUCH more saccharin. Something good, but much more sanitised. I'm so impressed they really went there.
SO MUCH LOVE FOR MATTY! SO MUCH LOVE. And oh, when he grabbed that spade I felt the relief physically. Wow.
I really want to write on this ep, so warning of lengthy praise-y rambling to come when I am less wiped.
