I guess I don't really see it as a conscious thing...I think Flack was focused on helping Danny, period. Flack gets tunnel vision when it comes to Danny...at the end of the episode, he was talking to Angell, but the minute Danny walked in with Rikki, it was like there was no one else in the room. He really worries about Danny's well-being, physical and mental, quite a lot. So I can easily see him focused on making sure Danny was safe and okay mentally, and not so worried about telling him Lindsay alerted him to what was going on with Danny. I always assumed he was calling her at the lab, and figured he'd had the lab number memorized. I just don't see a lot of warmth between the two in the episode, but to be fair, they were both pretty worried about Danny. If I recall correctly, he was already on his way out when she came in, so I don't think he was running from her so much that he was already running and didn't stop for her. He did blow her off in "Right Next Door," but I always saw that as too little, too late from her anyway. Agreed...I think it's something she needs to learn how to do. I hope that there's a situation this season where we see her do that. She was completely smitten with Danny by season four, I think. Love makes you happy. I also think she was a lot closer with the team and therefore more comfortable being around them and relaxing a bit. I guess I see her more at that point now than before because the trial really seemed to provide closure for her. Whether that was because they didn't want to give Belknap any more emotional scenes or because Lindsay actually found peace, I don't know. But that chapter does seem to be closed. Determination and strength kind of go hand in hand--the weak just give up or go about things in really unhealthy ways. Lindsay being determined to face her demons and be friendly at work with Danny doesn't seem that unhealthy or fragile to me. Stella seemed pretty concerned, but Lindsay didn't seem to want to let anyone in. I think she's gotten good at sorting her own stuff out without anyone's support. Maybe she's one of those people who thinks she's stronger if she does things on her own. Whereas Danny just falls apart in front of everyone and everyone rushes to his side to make sure he's okay, because they know if he don't, he won't get to okay on his own. I can't see Danny with his issues sorted, either. :lol: As for her trusting him, I kind of come back to it being a mistake to marry him in that case. What's a marriage without trust? But I know we agree on the marriage being a mistake. He makes me laugh at him rather than with him, like I do at Flack. Flack is just a funny guy--he cracks me up with his comments and his snark. Like you say, Danny's funniest moments are when he's not trying to be funny. Though that "N(e)R(d)" equation in "Admissions" was pretty funny! But that's Danny--of course he took her shift, of course he left her the flower...it's easier for him to give and be taken advantage of (not that she did that there) than it is for him to be in a healthy relationship. Yeah, Danny does seem to freak out on those cases, which makes me think he was betrayed by someone he should have been able to trust. Yeah, and it's entirely possible, though that wouldn't explain why Danny perceived her as not reaching out to him at all. I really think a lot of his pulling away was because he didn't see her reaching out to him at all. I don't think Flack did it maliciously, but his focal point was on keeping Danny safe. What happened after Lindsay told him also seemed to be more about Flack and Danny's relationship, at least in Flack's eyes. When Danny asked why Flack didn't mind his own business, Flack's response was, "You're my friend. Makes it my business." He was thinking about him and Danny, not Danny and Lindsay. I don't think it was a selfish thing...just kind of natural when you've spent the whole afternoon saving the guy's butt!
