I was just about to say that things are looking pretty bleak for everyone in Ray's world -- including Ray. But maybe I'm looking at things the wrong way. Maybe we just need to see the good things happening here. Yeah, things aren't so bad, after all.
First of all, Ray started the episode by feeling a little blue about Jessica and his life in general. But he managed to turn things around. Instead of sinking into listlessness over her animosity towards life, he saw it as an opportunity to fill a hole. (No, not that kind of hole, but rather, an emotional hole.) He relaxed. He listened to her. He persuaded her to bowl a few games with him, and they were happy.
He's also seeing an opportunity with the baseball team at school. Despite the fact that Detroit is in an economic decline, he's vowing to do everything he can to make sure they go to the state championships. Go, team! And go, Ray! Where there's a will, there's a way. And a Ray, too.
Meanwhile, Tanya's seeking out valuable info from a professional pimp. Figure out what your people's problems are and fix them. Figure out what they need and give it to them.
