I love this this show isn’t just focusing on Aaron’s journey. It seems like this episode is all about Marie. She even has a voiceover speaking of how she felt blessed, safe and secure. That she believed that there would be “time for everything”.
Unlike HIMYM where Ted pines over Robin then when he finally gets her we see why and the series shows over again why they shouldn’t work out but then retcon the series to put them together again in the finale.
Or the original where Ross and Rachel pioneered the “will they, won’t they” story in network television.
This show just brings in new characters for Jonah and Amy to be with but the difference is there’s no foundation of the relationship other than friendship.
Their timing is never right and even when they’re given ways to get out of their relationships *cough Jonah cough* they chose to never risk it even with the prospect of love.
