REWATCHING: The Color Of Maddie Jun 16, 2009 20:50:24 GMT -5

I see a couple of links. First, Nora marries a guy at Mardi Gras after only “knowing” him a short while. Smacks of the entire Walter incident on the train, no?
Second, upon the arrival of Charlie, she questions if the man she married is the man that is now at her door. Reminds me of the Pat Boone scenes where Maddie worries about a changed David.
I may be completely off base here, but I am sure others on the forum will indeed take me to task.
You are not off base at all!! In fact, you knocked it out of the park Gray! Nora Cooper was a lonely woman much in the same sense as Maddie, looking for companionship, love, etc. Only for Maddie these things have been there all along. She knows it and starts to actually admit it..."we are on this ladder....don't know where it leads...don't look down"...that little heart to heart with David was exactly what they needed--- an actual sincere discussion about themselves and how they feel.
Could they have talked more about other issues? YES! but, this is ML folks!
Gray---very nice avatar this evening---give the guy another star!!
Agree with Gray and bees. Also, I think there's a connection in what Nora says about their time in New Orleans--that it was brief, but it left an indelible mark. David and Maddie's (physical) relationship was short--as far as we know for sure, it only lasted 3 1/2 weeks; they may have been "together" on some level after "Flesh Made Word," though the way David describes it in the car (as a "fling") makes that questionable. In any case, their fling/affair/whatever has affected both of them profoundly.
