As the title of this episode suggests, the guys were all feeling a big powerless and it looked for a time that it was a position overwhelming to each of them. What was reassuring, then, was to realize that with age comes experience and wisdom and a way to figure out how to deal with just these kinds of issues. Each of our men of a certain age were powerless in some way for a time, but not by the end of the hour. That's one for the old guys, if you're keeping score.
You couldn't ignore the Rocky analogy in the episode. From Joe talking about filling gaps to Owen's victory dance, even Terry's inarticulate appeal to Annie, these were all references to Sylvester Stallone's first Rocky. Thank goodness they didn't dwell into the sequels.
