Okay, so I know Good Game is a simple comedy where every single emotion is grossly exaggerated and nothing is supposed to be taken seriously.
But seeing Alex all worried and alone in that bar actually fucking sucked. A lot.
Sometimes it seems like his relentless optimism and somewhat lame unconditional supportiveness are coming from his fear of abandonment. At least I got this impression from the way Alex’s character is portrayed in general.
Anyway, not to add the totally non-existent layer of drama here, but certain moments in ep5 were maybe a little heartbreaking (and by “little” I mean VERY, because I adore Alex and I’m also a giant sap).
