Pissed or hurt? And he'd had to follow her into the locker room and then chase after as she left. He tried, twice, which is really twice more than he should have had to try. I don't remember him leaving angry. It's not even just the blow offs--it's the nasty snappishness, too, like the way she was in "Oedipus Hex" about the job and her shoving the folder into his hand in "Right Next Door." She's just not nice to him a lot of the time. True, Danny is a hard one to "get," :lol: . But yes, Mac's fondness for Danny was evident, especially when he and Lindsay told Mac about the baby. Yeah, but he wasn't coming back on her timetable. I think she expected him to go off and grieve and get over it and be back to normal and that would be that. And he didn't, so she got pissed off. I can see him making allowances for Lindsay's emotional damage under normal circumstances. He backed off when he saw that was what she needed. But in this case, Danny was the one in need. When you're hurting, you don't always make allowances for others, and what he was going through trumped whatever difficulties she had in reaching out to him. The fact that she couldn't get over herself enough to see that--and then got mad at him for not coming to her!--makes her completely unsympathetic in that situation in my eyes. Because for Danny caring has a negative aspect to it. Caring is being critical of him or cruel to him. He doesn't seem to know how to handle the positive aspect of it. I'm sure that's hard for people that care about him, but it should also drive them to show him more of the positive stuff, so he can get used to that. Flack's pretty tough, and I think he gets Danny's damage on a fundamental level. The two couldn't be more different, but Flack takes the time to really consider Danny and think about what Danny's going through and put it in perspective. Lindsay doesn't do that. If you look at his behavior over the course of the show, I'm not sure he ever really believes they care. It's nice, but again, it allows her to keep an emotional distance and still feel like she's doing something. I don't think it's so much that she's the best she can get right now, since at the moment he's happy with her because of the baby. Initially, I think he got interested in her after it became clear she liked him--he was responding to her desire more than really having any of his own. That's really the only thing I can think of, other than the city boy/country girl cliches the show goes for with these two. What things do you like about her? There are times I want to like the character, but then I think of "Oedipus Hex" or "Silent Night" or even the way she told Danny she was pregnant and I just get an "ick" feeling.
