Hey, the landscapers who work on my mother's yard take off their shirts so I'd argue that it's not totally gratuitous. Though they don't look like Jamie. And I loved Megan/Dana's reaction. I'm not entirely sure she was acting. ;)
Given Megan's past attempts at romance on the show and her repeatedly admitted issues, I'm not surprised she hasn't "closed escrow". Stupid, yes. Surprised, no.
The door was totally left open for a Season 3 return (YAY!). Given the series is most definitely on the bubble and Jamie will be (Oh, he WILL BE) starring in his own series, there's a good chance we saw the last of Aidan. But, if so, I'm choosing to believe he was THE ONE and they lived happily ever after.
As for the main plot....yeah, I had a ton of issues with how the case was developed. However, the mis-identification aspect was completely real. We had the same thing happen where I live (minus the shooting aspect). Though the parents of both girls were not so easily talked out a lawsuit. I'm sorry, no way is Kate that persuasive and the grieving parents that forgiving.
Easily the most productive guest shot he's done in... maybe ever.
Totally Agree. It was a small part, but I believe it accomplished a lot for him besides providing a paycheck until he gets a regular gig. The smiles alone encourage me to buy the DVDs when they come out!
