First off, I would like to wish everyone a Happy “almost” New Year. I’m glad we can ring in 2013 together celebrating all things Shahs.
Last week we left the episode with Reza toasting everyone except for MJ, further shaking up their twenty-something year relationship that was already rocky. Here’s what I think: The root of Reza’s problem with MJ is loyalty. Reza can’t understand how his high school bestie could side with GG, someone who has outwardly bad-mouthed Reza and treated him like s---. Honestly, I don’t blame Reza. But, I also don’t condone his behavior. He acted like a catty, mean girl last week. He should know better, and he does. Sometimes I wonder what’s underneath his mustache. . .a vagina?
Which brings me to this week. Before we get to the meat of the episode, here’s a quick recap of the little things that happened…
We see Omid and GG’s relationship developing, Reza have lunch with his mom, Mike and Reza get realtor headshots, Lilly get the brush off over the phone by her F.O.B. (fresh off the boat) boyfriend, and of course MJ’s birthday party where everyone was required to bring a datable guy in lieu of a gift.
Agreed, Ali is just not that into Lilly.
If a man REALLY wants to be with you, he will come hell or high water to get to you....no matter what. It's been 10 years already, move on.
You made an excellent point when you wrote that if Omid was so offended about GG not being invited,why was he at the party? Great blog.
