'The Road Narrows'Â episode of HAWTHORNE opens in the James River parking lot with Tom adorably telling Paul about how Christina makes him feel when a minivan screeches in and takes out Tom, Paul, and several other people. Tom's arm is injured with possible nerve damage, but Paul is left unconscious with all kinds of trauma and eventually suffers an aneurysm and doesn't survive. Meanwhile, the grandson of the minivan's driver is treated for a minor head injury and is worried because he knows his grandmother caused the accident but he doesn't want to tell the police and upset his parents. Candy returns from Afghanistan three months early with no explanation and Camille is volunteering at James River to be close to Marcus.
The slow burn of Christina and Tom exploded tonight. First Tom tells Paul he thinks Christina is the one and wonders if it's too soon to ask her to go away for a weekend and then, after learning about Paul's death, they share some sweetly hot sex and he whispers Marry me.Â I don't usually associate Hawthorne with shocking moments, but that definitely surprised me, and I can only imagine Christina's reaction. On a shallow note: that was just a whole lot of swoon-worthy pretty right there.
