I wondered if anyone would recall her other dates and also compare Pat Boone to Sam!!
Hard to miss. When will Maddie learn?!? While I personally found Walter more on the up & up with Maddie than Sam was, I have to ask of both men: What kind of a man rushingly marries (or proposes marriage) to a vulnerable woman who is clearly in love with another man?!?
Much as manitobadesigner expressed, the extreme irony to me in this episode is that the very same woman who made such a point of people only having one first wedding/not getting married on a whim and rejected another Mayo husband possibility less than a season before, has an impromptu Vegas wedding to another transient character. Then again, things with Walter seemed easy and he served as a sort of shelter in the storm for Maddie whereas things were more competitive/combative/tumultuous on the Sam/David fronts. Here she also seems more informed and empowered as she attempts to control and manipulate Mr. Paw..err, I mean “the situation” (even though she's still in the same state of flux we've seen since "Blonde on Blonde"). On a side note, could the people that initially lobbied that no one would ever buy Maddie romantically going for a guy that looked like David be the very ones that married her off to WALTER??? Then again, maybe the improbability of anything serious developing with Walter is precisely why Maddie felt so comfortable with him.
