Well, fainting sure as hell didn’t work to cope with the situation. What else is there now but to go completely mad?

She’s finnaly showing her emotions for him, but in a very guilt ridden way.

In a pshyco, guilt ridden way.

Comment ID #15448

Wow, first time we’ve seen her cling onto somebody besides her pets for an extended period of time, and no, that previous hug and kiss do not count. And the huge emotional trauma is causing her to cry from guilt. If they don’t find her, I don’t think she’ll ever truly recover :(

Yikes. Considering how strongly Mike’s previous near-death experience affected Lucy (i.e. her near hysteria when Mike was drowning, and her attempt at CPR with the impassioned “YOU CAN’T LEAVE ME!”), I have to say that this meltdown is completely believable. She believes that the water finally took Mike from her, and … the visuals above say more than my words can.

That said, I would have no idea how to comfort her if I was in that situation….

The last time that they did their “who are you?” shtick was all the way back at the christmas party.
I think she just got tiered of not only the rejection and him going for other girls but also never doing anything in the group and found anouther possy

Lucy in all things showing Mike’s probably dead involves her glooming so hard it hurts worse than her sad in most other cases. ;_;

Why did you cut away from Paulo and Lucy hugging? I wanted them to appear in something more than just silhouettes. Hmph… :(

Crazy Lucy is awesome. But Paulo? You should probably give her another hug before she totally loses it and flips out violently…

If Lucy was Violetta, it explains so much.

Oh well. Mike might be an ******* sometimes, but at least he’s no Furio Tigre.

I’ve actually had to be in Paulo’s shoes in a case like that. Poor girl wet my clothes and hurt my arm. Fortunately, everything returned to normal after sorting things out….thank The Lord…
