Ipsy Sample Bag Review - June 2013

My Ipsy bag arrived last week and I was ecstatic to find all sorts of new goodies that I had never tried before. This is why I love Ipsy so much- you really get to try different brands without taking too much of a cost risk. There are simply so many beauty brands out there, that at times it can be overwhelming, and while you may want to buy everything, the risk of buying something doesn't always quite work out that well for you. I love that for $10 a month I can try new brands and products worth many times over the cost of the bag. 

The theme this month was on the wild side. 

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the bag this month- what a fabulously fun print. I may have to start giving some of these bags away because between the sample society boxes and all these bags, I could be on my way to my very own episode of Hoarders. 

NYX Cream Blush- First up was the cream blush, which at first glance looked like a darker peach. I've been trying out cream blushes more and don't know why it took me so long to experiment with them, they always seem to last longer. I tried this blush hoping that I blend it in enough to look like a lighter peach shade on my pale skin, but it was a no go. This is very creamy and easy to apply, a wonderful consistency, but it was just too dark for me. My sister will be getting this in her box of goodies next week when she comes to visit (she's very lucky to have darker skin because she's making out quite well with some of my samples). If you haven't tried any NYX products, you really need to try them- for the price they are an amazing value. Ulta seems to be always running sales on their products.  This is valued at $6.

Line-Fix Gel Eyeliner with Brush Built-In by Cailyn Cosmetics- Another gel eyeliner, but I love it! It's adorable together, the little brush and container, and since I always have such a hard time applying eyeliner due to my shaking hands this was greatly appreciated. The color was oddly in purple, which I thought was a strange color to send out in the bags, but it went on so smoothly. I have to keep practicing with the brush, it was odd since at first glance I thought what the heck am I going to do with the purple eyeliner, but when you put it on its really not that purple since its so dark, it could be really great for a night look. Either way, the brush is great, and I could use it with other colors.  Retail value of this product is $21. 

Eyelash and Eyelash Glue By J. Cat Beauty- This was one of two products from this brand. I tried these on tonight, and thought they were easy enough to apply, I think I've worn fake eyelashes maybe twice in my life and both times they were applied by professionals, but these worked great, and for a first time trying it out were easy enough. Retail value of this product is $3.59.

Sparkling Cream Palette by J. Cat Beauty- The second product by this brand was met with a little less fanfare. I played around with the colors tonight when I couldn't sleep and am wondering when I ever am going to use this product. It goes on very sporadic at first, like you just got some random pieces of glitter stuck on your eyelid, I thought it would be thicker and go on like a heavier eye shadow cream, but it didn't. It was creamy, but went on differently than I had hoped. This could be a good going out look, but don't see me getting much use out of it. The retail value of this product is $4.59 and I have to say that I am still curious to try the jewel tone palette that they also sell on the site. 

Lip Pencil by Starlooks- This came in Tickle Me Pink, and boy it was pretty bright. It actually reminded me of a bright salmon color, but with some blending with another shade, really looked good. This was definitely a quality pencil, glided on very smooth, and lasted for quite a bit of time. I'll have to check out more of their products. The retail value of this product is $12.

The total value for this bag was $47! Great value like always! Overall this bag was interesting, definitely gave me some things to try that aren't in my comfort zone of makeup, but they were fun to experiment with tonight. Definitely not everyday use makeup, but may wear some of it at an upcoming night wedding this summer.

Sample Saturday-Seventh Generation Facial Cloth

As anyone can attest, I'm pretty addicted to getting free samples. One, because who doesn't love to get free stuff and two, it's better than only getting bills in the mail.

A small envelope arrived from Target last week with a sample of one of Seventh Generation's personal care products. I've had limited experience with Seventh Generation- I've ordered a few of their products from Vitacost, but love how they work and that they are also green products. I thought it was interesting that they were expanding their brand to personal care products. According to the package this is the first skincare line to be certified USDA biobased. There sample was a facial cleansing cloth in mandarin scent.

I am a big fan of facial cloths because sometimes you just feel lazy and want the quickest possible way to wipe down your face before popping into bed. Upon opening the package, I noticed that it really didn't have much of a scent, which was disappointing because I love any kind of citrus scent. Give me something that smells like oranges or lemons any day of the week, because I always equate citrus scents to being clean and reminding me of summer. While using it on my face, you do start to notice a very faint citrus smell, it reminded of me of my vitamin C facial cloths that I bought from beautyencounter some time ago. I did like this cloth, my face felt refreshed, and it didn't irritate my skin. I would definitely recommend it and am going to check out what else they have to offer in their skincare line.

Has anyone else tried any of the beauty products from Seventh Generation? What did you all think????

Sample Society Box June 2013 Review

My June sample society box was the first box to arrive this month. I know I keep saying this, but I love how fast they do arrive on my doorstep. It's definitely a fabulous little way to start off each month.

This month had to be one of my favorite months, and it wasn't because I got to try new products that I never had tried before, but because they sent me REPLACEMENTS for two favorites in my makeup kit! I know the purpose is to often try new things for me, but getting two things I already love just made my day!

Shall we begin???

Diptyque Eau Moheli-0.6 oz.-SS - I'll start with the worst part of the box- this product. In my first review of Sample Society where I discussed the pros and cons I had encountered so far with this sample box, I mentioned that apparently they sent this out quite a bit as a product. This is now my second sample of this overpriced, and horribly smelling perfume. Well, its not horrible smelling, that may be a bit harsh, it's just too heavy for me. My mom gets this added to her goody bag. 

Illume Desert Tulip Tin- This was so adorable!!! I loved the cute little packaging for this product and the smell is really fantastic, a light floral. My husband liked it, and it will most likely be burning next week when my family is in town to visit with us. I would definitely buy a full size for this candle and may just do that this month with my sample society discount , or just another small size like this one to bring with me when we travel. Also can I just say that the full size glass is so pretty with that print! It's a decoration in itself!

Murad Age Reform AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser-1 oz.- I'm pretty much obsessed with Murad products. Everything that I have ever tried for them just is golden in my book, and this replaces the cleanser that I recently used the last of. I love how clean it smells, and how most of their products seem to not be heavy on scent. I just wish their products weren't so expensive. I buy anything by them and I ration it out like crazy.

Philosophy Hope In a Jar- I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with Philosophy as previously noted in another post. I do like how this product works, but I just can't get past the scent- it's a strong pine scent- which is probably up there as one of my least favorite scents! It's a pretty strong smell, even my husband has commented on it when I crawl into bed. Maybe to someone else this wouldn't be as offensive, as I'm sure there are some people out there that love the pine scent, I just wish this came in a different scent, because although it works, I find myself not wanting to use it. My mom gets this as well as well next week (as well as a practically full size one that I jumped ship on last month). 

Stila Cosmetics Lip Glaze-Apricot-Deluxe Sample- I am in love with Stila products, and this lipstick. I already have a full size of it, that I keep in my purse, but like most people when they switch out purses, it sometimes gets left behind. So now I have a small little spare. This is seriously one of my favorite lip glazes, it's a little sticky, but I love that it has just enough color to make an impact- hello gorgeous!

As I said earlier, this was definitely a great month because I just fell in love with that silly little candle, and two of my favorite products were replaced. Even the philosophy product wasn't a total letdown, because I know it will be used by my mom who I've been slowly trying to get her to try new products.

Goodies Sample Box June 2013 Review

Our fabulous little Goodies Sample Box arrived on Saturday. My husband texted me at work to let me know- my response: Don't touch it yet! I have to take pictures! 

We are horribly bad in that whenever we get the box, all the snacks go pretty much out the window that night as we try everything, Goodies box sometimes equals dinner in this house. Judge away.

Let's get to it!

Adobadas Chips by Frito Lay- these were pretty amazing! My husband was a really big fan of them, proven by the fact that he polished them off pretty quickly. I had a couple but it hits you with a little bit of spice at the end, and since I am a wimp when it comes to any sort of spicy food, my husband was able to enjoy in abundance, and there was no complaining in that regard coming from him. He said he would definitely buy them at the store. 

Cheddar Cheese Seaweed Crumbles by Gimme Health- This really should be by gimme something that actually tastes good.  I was excited when I saw this in our pack of goodies, since people have been raving about seaweed for a snack for quite a bit of time, I just hadn't around to trying it. Very glad I did not actually go out and buy a big bag of this, because it was just gross. Weird consistency, and my husband and I both simply said that it just tasted like we were munching on dry seaweed. This was definitely not for us, who knows there could be a really amazing brand out there that does make seaweed taste delicious, and if you know of any feel free to sound off in the comments. 

Dream Water NightTEA Night by Sarpes Beverages- This little bottle definitely intrigued me- according to the packaging you are supposed to take it a half hour before scooting off to bed, and promises a delightful, worry free sleep, and wake up refreshed, etc, etc. I tried it last night, and was out like a light in about twenty minutes. Did I wake up feeling super refreshed? Not really, but I felt rested. It also has a bit of a weird taste to it, which leaves a funky after taste in your mouth. 

Apple, Raspberry, Peach, Chia & Acerola by Smooch Snacks- I saw this and my first thought was that they were sending me a kid snack, which I imagine it definitely could be. I decided to try it right away, and when it first hit my mouth, all I could think was that I was drinking baby food, and then I thought runny applesauce. My husband just thought it was weird, so I thought maybe it would taste better after being in the fridge for a bit, maybe firm up a bit and become more slushy in consistency. No, this was not the case, it did not firm up or gel together more, it just tasted like colder baby food. A great flavor, but weird for me, not to say that if I did have kids, I wouldn't buy it for them. I thought of all my little cousins who would probably have a field day drinking this. 

Highland Shortbread by Duchy Originals- These were very delicious. My husband loves shortbread, so he was thrilled when I passed it over his way after having a bite. 

Pringles Stix Cheese by Kellog Company- I am in love with these. I love pringles, I love cheese sticks, so this was a match made in heavenly food matrimony in my opinion. My husband was not as thrilled about them, but I couldn't stop eating them. Delicious!

So that's it folks- Goodies Box June 2013. What did everyone else think of it?

Mad Men Season 6 Finale

Sadly, season six has now ended of Mad Men which means we only have one more season left of the entire show. I really enjoyed this episode as a season finale, it definitely laid the groundwork for new plots and directions of the show and gave it that fresh start feel that each season manages to bring. Honestly, it reminded me very much of the finale in season 3 which is one of my favorite episodes.

So let's begin.....

Random Thoughts As I Watched the Episode 

We start off with Stan and all his glory, and it was nice to see Stan really trying to make a move in his career, he does come of as very laid back, so it was interesting to see him proposing the idea of a CA office and he being the one to get the ball rolling.

"It's like Detroit but with palm trees."- haha

Margaret annoys me. She annoyed me as angst ridden teenager on the show and she still annoys me. She's all kissing up to the same man that a few weeks earlier told him he would no longer be able to see his grandson.

"What do I have to do to get on the list of girls you give money to?" Oh burn. She is no Sally Draper, she knows her father inside and out.

  However, I am in love with her plaid dress.

The agency has their own mugs. Fancy.

Next client is Hershey, this is the second client from PA where last season they were in deep with Heinz.

I love Pete venting about Detroit saying the airport is like Calcutta. Pete is turning into the new Roger with his zingers and one liners.

Ken- thank god you are not dead, and if anyone can pull off that eye path- it's you.

Best Roger Line- "It's all fun and games until someone gets shot in the face."

Bob is a tricky little one, but I am in full support of his platonic relationship with Joan, I may be naive in thinking this but I do not believe there is malice behind it, and thought it was cute that he brought back Kevin a little car.

Again, I know I've mentioned this in earlier episodes, but once again Mad Men does not sugarcoat the holidays and shows them in all their emotional, dysfunctional glory.

Don talking to the Minister -"I'm doing fine, Nixon is president, everything is back just the way Jesus wants it to be." Oh are so naive.....

Love Uncle Mack's line when he kicked out the preacher from the brothel- "I would say go to hell but I never want to see you again." classic.

I thought the line that the ultimate sin is to believe God cannot forgive you. This is definitely Don, he never faces down any of his problems, if he's good at one thing its beginnings, and running. He wants to run this episode again, away from work, NY, issues with his daughter. He never believes that anyone will ever forgive him for anything, and never gives them time to, partly because he never thinks they will, and partly because to forgive is to love, and he never has believed he was worthy of that. He has never believed anyone would love him enough to forgive him, so he runs.

Don wakes up in jail- yup he's hit rock bottom.

Ted's wife definitely gave Peggy a look as she paraded herself in that fabulous coat, and kids in front of Peggy. One thing Peggy craves is a family, as much as she is a modern woman, she still wants a family, and is jealous of so many that do.

Oh no, Pete's mother is lost at sea. I do believe they should forbid any of the Campbell clan from traveling. His father died in an airplane crash, his mother fell over the side of a boat, and Peter is a disaster at driving. They were not meant for travel.

Sally is looking all 1960's Connecticut preppy in that sharp little cardigan as she gives her father lip.

I will give Megan one thing, as she confronted Don the next morning when he woke up in jail, she definitely has some fight in her, she definitely speaks up more than Betty ever did, which shows generational differences. However, sometimes you look at her and think she's just as naive.

"I've gotten out of control."- Don. Damn right you have. and oh, what's this? You want to run again, surprise, surprise. Not like we didn't see this coming, and then he steals Stan's lines about going out there, and of course that would appeal to Don. That idea that once again he can start over, that the west offers a clean slate, you can be pioneers and really build a life for yourself. But he has a life here, he just doesn't want to deal with it. It also shows how once again Don is losing his touch, stealing ideas, just reciting lines playing the part of Don Draper. He tells her that they were happy there, that they could be happy again. Escapism once again.

Joan's suit in the meeting where Don tells them he is going to CA is wonderful. Ted has a point, everyone else has to jump through hoops, and have ideas be discussed, except Don- he can just run with whatever he wants.

So the nurse married Pete's mom- total con artist. Pete was being harsh on Bob but honestly Bob is a con artist in his life that he made up for himself, and so he looks very suspicious to have suggested the male nurse to Pete.

Oh damn Peggy rocking those boobs and tights and I love her little move of going in to say she was taking off early. Ted's wife sashayed in front of her what she doesn't have, so she sashayed her goods to Ted.

"Chanel number five. It's all I wear." so good. Vixen by night. love it.

I want that car, it is amazing. Pete doesn't know how to drive, and I love how Bob got his revenge on him by making a fool of him in front of Chevy. Pete does not have the upper hand as he would like to think.

Ted waiting for Peggy. " Get inside before my neighbors kill you." He went to her apartment, and I loved his outburst:

"I don't know why women do anything!" He's in love with her, and cut to kissing and Peggy locking her door which cracked me up.

I thought the conversation between Betty and Don really showcased how far Betty has come. In the past she always seemed to call Don in hysterics whenever something happened, but she's very cool and calm saying their daughter was suspended for buying beer with a fake ID (like father like daughter). Betty did still make it about her, but it wasn't all about how it embarrassed her (well with her mother in law not wanting her to know, which is understandable that mother in law is from hell). She's also not blaming Sally, saying oh she's doing this to hurt me, etc, shes so calm stating that Sally needs more than she can give her. I thought it was interesting to note that she mentioned she tried to think of all the things that her mother would have done, but it wasn't enough. Betty is realizing that so much of what her mother drilled into her in how to be a woman, and how to live, isn't enough for her either. I felt this was a small way of acknowledging that her own mother failed in some ways with her, and didn't give her enough of the tools to be grownup.

So now Ted wants to run too, he and Don are not that different, and Don turns him down. Once again, someone is coming to Don for help, being in a situation that is very similar to one that he was in, and he turns them down. His brother did it, Lane did it. Ted is running from Peggy and maybe it will work. He should leave so she can be with Stan. There is such a desperation in Ted's voice when he says its his only chance. Don recognizes that, that desperation to disapear.

Ted saying I can't throw this away, I have kids. Ted wants to run with his kids, Don always wants to run away from his kids, and when he doesn't at the end of the episode, there is growth. Maybe like Ted, he knows that his kids may be the glue that keeps him together in this crazy world. Maybe Ted was right when he said to Don, I know there is a good man in there. It could have just been his plea, but part of me thinks he meant it, and I don't think Don has heard that much from people, not in a childhood where he grew up being told he was trash.

"It's too late Ted, my wife- they're writing her off the show." oooh foreshadowing of Megan.

Don in the Hershey meeting was just brilliant acting on the part of Jon Hamm, first his bs story about his dad in the store, and then when there was that raw emotion of telling them about being in the brothel, being an orphan and dreaming of being wanted, that feeling of being a normal kid. The Hershey bar symbolized so much for Don as a child.. The true story was more compelling, but isn't that often the case?

The look of shock on everyone's face was just unbelievable, Don Draper finally opening up, so I guess they can rule out Harry's theory from the first season that he was found under a rock, and could be batman for all they know....

"Happy Thanksgiving, sweetheart." a true affectionate moment to Dawn. He too is an outsider.

Poor Peggy, once again her heart is broken, so sick of her being the punching bag for pretty much everyone. She needs to catch a break in love. I thought it was heartbreaking when she said to Ted, "Well you are lucky to have decisions." She always feels trapped, and can't seem to get ahead in her personal life. She wants the freedom the men in the show have in running their own lives, sure she's been a trailblazer in her own right, but she is still limited. I do love how she wears that pantsuit in the end of the episode.

Pete and Bud talking to the investigator, hilarious how they were wondering if it would be worth it to find out the true situation of their mother's death. She was not a warm woman to either one of them, and now they are both free. Trudy said it best when she tells him that at the end of the episode

Megan looks like a pilgrim which made her comment about the children and how she used to pity them but now she knows they are in the same boat that much better. Megan is leaving, I really don't think she will be back, she was his rebound second wife. Three times may be a charm for Don in marriage.....well, maybe.

Then Don is fired, he is the golden boy no more, like his daughter he has been suspended, however unlike his  daughter he has no return date. Duck must have loved seeing him when he stepped out of the elevator.

"Going down?" and another great burn on the show.

A few thoughts about the thanksgiving scene at Joan's:

One, Bob in a apron is a riot
Two, I want Joan's amazing deep green dress, its perfect
and most importantly: They are playing MOON RIVER! One of my all time favorite songs. They could have ended the episode right there, and I'd be thrilled.

But they had to end it with Don, and let me just say, that the last scene of this episode was just purely beautiful and perfect, when they pulled up to Don's old house and he opened up to them. It's interesting to note that the last couple seasons, they had Heinz, and then Hershey two huge brands from PA, and Don himself grew up in PA, so it was in a way getting him to go back home. They were bringing him back to his past.   He told them this is where he grew up, and as Both Sides Now (another one of my favorite songs!) played that look that he shared with Sally was beautiful. He was saying he was sorry, he was saying I'm going to tell you about me now. It was a perfect scene, and for whatever gripes people had about season six (which I really did enjoy) that scene was just wonderful. Can't wait to see what is in store for Don next season as he finally confronts his past......

I don't think I've ever been more excited for a season to start.....2014 you are too far away!

PS I would really like it though if next season I see more of Joan in the show than just Johnny Walker commercials during the break.....thanks.

Until next year folks- I hope you enjoyed the recaps of Mad Men.

Mad Men Season 6 Episode 11 Recap "Favors"

I know, I know- I didn't recap last week's episode. The reason being was that I was in Houston for a long overdue visit with some of my most favorite people, and when I came back, it was right back into work, and chaos, so the recap got a little lost in all that. But I am back, and will promise to recap the rest of the season which by the way, I can't believe is approaching so fast! Only a couple more episodes and were are done with season six and are onto the LAST season. I better find a new show to recap soon. So getting right into it....your recap and random thoughts

Random Thoughts as I watched the Episode:

I LOVE Peggy's green suit, she has been all about the kelly and emerald green this season, and I am all for it since green is my favorite color.

Roger drinking in the morning- classic.

"Not all surprises are bad"- Roger. Um, I am pretty sure most people in this episode would think all surprises are bad. Sally for sure on this one.

Oh lordy, Peggy and Pete's mother alone together- immediately I thought well this is awkward, Peggy sitting down talking to the grandmother of her child, a child that said grandmother has no idea even exists.

And she thinks Peggy is Trudy. Of course this is one time when her dementia is taking over, but she is actually speaking some truths in relation to Peter and Peggy having a baby. Peggy looks so uncomfortable and like she is about to burst into tears.

"Did she go to China for that tea?"- Peggy, waiting with Peter's mother. Hahaha!

Don walks in on Megan chatting with Mitchell. Mitchell is closer in age to Megan than Don and there is that generational difference. Don and Roger's generation had a very different view of American duty, while there is so much gray towards Vietnam.

"He can't spend the rest of his life on the run." Don about Mitchell wanting to run to Canada to avoid the draft. Again, his hypocrisy takes over, like he should even talk.

I Loved Ted, Peggy, and Peter drinking together, celebrating their victory in getting Cranberry (let the wars of the fruit juices begin). Peggy looking at both her past and possibly her future in the two men in front of her. However, surprised to say that my favorite moment of all this was not a moment between Peggy and Ted, but one of brutal, raw honesty between Peggy and Peter:

"Because you really know me."- Peter
"I do."- Peggy.

I thought this was such an honest, real moment, one of those moments when you connect again from someone in your past, and even though its all said and done and is staying in the past, there is that raw recognition that you do really know that person and maybe have forgotten to recognize that. Peggy's face when she responds that she does is both an affirmative but also one of wonder, as in wow, you are right, I do know you. You recognized that.

Betty fighting with Sally- teenage angst. Love Henry's line that the UN is a joke.

"Join this company and read a memo once and awhile."- Ted to Don. This season people are really starting to call Don out on his crap and his going rogue routine. They have all started to come into their own, playing the rules, and not playing the rules, but are all sick and tired of Don doing whatever he wants, whenever he wants.

Sally meeting Mitchell. Oh I wouldn't for the world want to be a 13 year old girl again, but seeing those girls react to the older boy made me laugh about the excitement back then with those silly crushes.

I liked Don sitting down with Sylvia's husband at the restaurant. Its so odd, that Don has a male friend finally, someone who he does talk to in a non business setting. Ted is right when he calls Don out on not having many friends, and of course its the husband of the woman he is sleeping with, and the woman I'm sure that will be blowing all this to shreds soon.

I LOVE Peter's blue couch and green pillows. If anyone can find me one like this, let me know.

Ouch. Poor Peter, he was screwed up from the start. Never been a fan of his mother, and her whole you were always unlovable line was just brutal. It's always hard seeing the child who was treated the worst doing the most for the parent that treated them horribly, that endless cycle of unconsciously and consciously wanting their approval.

Peggy's apartment, she's still in that place and it looks like she caught a rat or a mouse. Blood is everywhere, and again there is that brutality coming into the show again. Blood from the rat race?

Peggy called Stan! Sadly, she gets turned down. But I loved their conversation and thought for a second he might just take her up on her offer to make it worth it for him to come over, and then accusing him of using his sexy voice. All of Stan's voices are sexy, Peggy. When you have a beard like that, all your voices sound hot.

That was one awkward dinner, but again it showed the division in the country towards Vietnam, the division about serving and not serving, and not just among the young, but these older men.

I thought it was good of Ted to help Don, and a nice way to call for a cease fire between them. Sylvia thanking Don was just hard to watch, and all I could think was please don't have them get back together, this woman will bring it all crashing down, because she's not exactly like all the other women he's been with, she has too much guilt inside, and if what happened at the end of the episode hadn't happened, I'm sure her guilt would have eaten at her and she would have confessed to her husband.

I was actually not surprised that Pete's mom was not sleeping with the nurse, but the mystery of Bob Benson has been solved. He's just in love with Peter Campbell, which means he has about as much sense as Peggy did in the first season about men. But how on earth, did he even think that Peter would go for it? Let's see how this one plays out for the rest of the season.

Um. how old is Sally? 13, maybe 14? and her friend is talking about going all the way. Um, no. Her portrayal of her embarrassment of being found out about having a crush on Mitchell was pretty spot on. When you're that age, you're pretty sure you will die if the boy you liked was to find out you liked him. She was sneaky getting the key from the doorman, but as soon as she grabbed that key I just knew it was going to get bad, and quickly.

and it did. Sally walked in on Don and Sylvia going at it, and again her future therapy bills pile up. What was that, Roger about not all surprises being bad? Suuuure.....

So now, for future reference, Sally has walked in on two sexual encounters- Roger and Marie in the Codfish ball episode and now this one.

What was that you were saying before about not really knowing your father, Sally? Do you really want to?

Also, Sylvia's punching the bed when they got caught was just ridiculous. Like a wailing Italian widow.

That dinner was so uncomfortable and Sally's outburst was long overdue. Megan saying Don was such a sweet man, no he is a frustrating man, who does nice things like that, but then consistently cheats on everyone who loves him.  Don having that meltdown was amazing acting by Jon Hamm. He tries to talk to Sally, but she doesn't open the door to him, and he closes the door when he reaches the end of the hallway, their relationship is changing again, and then it all goes to black..

Thoughts on this episode?
