Do you think it’s too soon for Michelle to be moving on from Hubbell?
Is it just me, or is Paradise starting to look more like the Twilight Zone every week? The June 25 episode of Bunheads found Michelle (Sutton Foster) handcuffed in the back of a squad car after attempting to drive down a “private” road, though she’d never know it was private because it was unmarked — a point she beat into the policemen’s heads until she was blue in the face.
Michelle decided to hit the road by foot, where she eventually met Grant, the “mystery man” who owns the “private” land she was accused of trespassing on. He helped her feel like less of a loser, and I know I’m not the only one who felt major chemistry between the two of them — a lot more than she had with Hubbell (Alan Ruck), anyway.
The weirdness continued as Fanny (Kelly Bishop) tried to make Michelle feel guilty for being the new owner of the house, the land and the dance studio — because, you know, she totally asked Hubbell to put her in his will at the last minute.
And the girls didn’t make this episode any less weird, as Michelle first encountered them taking pictures of their bunions, blisters and other various foot deformities. It was for a competition between rival dance studios, which apparently won, though I’m not sure are any real “winners” in those kinds of competitions.
There was also kind of a nice bonding moment between Michelle and Sasha (Julia Goldani Telles). There’s something going on with that girl, and I think Michelle is just the person to help her out.
What did you think of this week’s Bunheads? It was slow, but at least it set the stage for a potential new romance for Michelle. Do you think it’s too soon for her to be moving on? Hit up the comments section with your thoughts!
