"The Starter Wife" Recap: June 14

Okay, so was I the only person in the world that didn't realize Financial Troubles Man was Rodney? I swear, he looks different in every scene. I guess in my head I just assumed he was confined to the overdone, and underdeveloped, role of gay best friend/comic relief and figured it was someone else. Or they didn't address him by name in those scenes and I didn't catch on. Either way, the plot is way better like this! So the story has been getting complicated. Molly confesses to Joan and Cricket that Sam, the beach-dwelling man of mystery, is not only homeless, but also a manslaughtering ex-con. But she still likes him. The fact that Sam's a convicted killer does not help her case much. Can you imagine telling your friends this? Sure, we saw Lou walk into the ocean all by himself, but they didn't! Molly takes Joan and Cricket to Sam's charming little woodland clearing for a combination meet-and-greet/questioning session... Sam is open about the facts and explains that he "takes care of what the police and security cannot," and got in a fight while stopping a robbery at Lou's house. Cricket is friendly and receptive, but Joan ain't buyin' it for one second. Later, she even tries to set her up with a hot realtor, but Molly's not interested.
