Well, it's getting to be time....
Well, it's getting to be time...i.e. to bring forth that Abigail (Baker)'s husband died while serving his country via National Guard in the Middle East just about a year ago as he took one for a Buddy. Despite being the stalwart father figure that Frank is, in those saddest of times comforting Abigail, Frank can be seen in a flashbacks as having some awkward awakenings as a widower....OK....seeing Abigail as a woman....during those many times he was simply trying 'to be there' to hug Abigail when she reached out despairingly "lost".
Alas, the same can be said for Abigail's juxtaposed feelings given having had a granite hard, loving marriage of 10 years. Nevertheless, and while they've both maintained the ultimate of decorum, working in such an increasingly close partnership all these many years, was there an unconscious blurring that occurred of the Grey Wall between the boss/subordinate? Despite their actual age differences, didn't the dynamic of the interactions bring about a co-equalness as he physically aged marvelously and her O-CD personality waned under the onslaught of the insecurity of "mid-life".
Bottom line: might we have several months of snippets of titillating/dangerously close work interactive "moments"... e.g. a slap on his butt as passes her per her habitual holding the door open for him....Oh come on, just kidding... but maybe an accidental touch on the hand as she passes a folder to him; deciding to share a restaurant table as they accidentally bump into each other there, which leads then to surreptitious rendezvouses as that first time was so...how shall we say... 'relaxing', all while family/co-worker suspicions are piqued in true soap style as predictable per age differences, the awkward envisioning of the replacement of the kids' Mom, where might she sit at the Sunday dinners? Alas, just throwing this out there for playful contemplation.
